About The Program
Age is the most overlooked aspect of diversity, and yet it may well be the most determinative factor in the way people think and act. Most people’s personalities are formed by the time they are 5 and their social skills are established by age 12. It is during the years between ages 5 and 15 that we form our opinions of what we consider “normal.” If you would understand Millennials, you start by looking at the music, entertainment, historical events, and cultural phenomena that impacted them during those formative years. This provides instant insight into many aspects of their nature including work ethic, communication styles, company loyalty, employer credibility, feedback and evaluation, motivation, and customer service. We’ll learn specific, easy-to-implement strategies and tactics for engaging and optimizing this generation. This presentation has been presented many times and is very much enjoyed by audiences. The greatest compliment is that Millennials in the audience often ask that it be repeated before audiences made up primarily of Millennials.
