If you were born between 1978 and 1996, you probably know your generation has been tagged "the Millennials", or, alternatively "GenY." Those that are already in the work force are now between the ages of 18 to 33.  If you are a "Baby Boomer"(those most likely to currently be senior leaders, or a "GenXer",  you most certainly already know that this group entering the workplace has caused some "tension", (to say the least), and that a "business as usual" approach to handling them has not necessarily been working.  With this 80 million strong cohort aging into the workforce rapidly and the equally large Baby Boomer generation aging out, managers are experiencing new demands on their skill sets and competencies and receiving little direction about what is likely to actually be effective.
Tonight we are going to take a look at the current and increasing challenges presented to managers and leaders, and what are the core competencies the research is showing they need to develop in order to most effectively work with and utilize the potential of this generation.  Unlike just another discussion of anecdotal examples, our interview tonight with author, researcher and professor, Chip Espinoza will discuss the knowledge he gained from the research he and his colleagues completed on this subject.
Join us tonight as Lisa Pasbjerg, executive coach and CEO of Focused Coaching, LLC reaches for some real specifics from this guest expert about the essential core competencies needed to facilitate the successful integration and management of millennials into the workplace for today and tomorrow.
