Managing Gen Y
Today’s twenty-something employees - or members of Gen Y - are ambitious, motivated, and dedicated to changing the business world for the better. However, without being told directly, it’s hard for young employees to understand the importance of marketing themselves, getting to know the right people, adding tangible value to the organization, learning transferable skills, and charting their own career paths. Because of what they don’t learn in college, twenty-somethings typically experience lower productivity and higher turnover than other employees in your organization. This session will educate you on where Gen Y-ers are coming from and what they are looking for, and will discuss how to employ the latest strategies and technologies that will make a difference in the degree to which your twenty-somethings contribute to the bottom line and end up staying with you for the long-haul. It's perfect for Baby Boomer and Generation X managers at all types of organizations.
They Don't Teach Corporate in College
In the business world, perception is reality and that creating and sustaining an effective corporate persona – or the mature, professional and competent face you project to the work world – is more important than anything else you can do on the job. It’s important because it positively influences your reputation at work that you can ultimately succeed. You can develop a strong corporate persona by thinking of yourself as a publicist with the task of promoting you and learning to succinctly assert your achievements without bragging. This interactive session will define the steps necessary to develop an effective corporate persona, including how to make a positive first impression on business contacts and how to practice strong communication and diplomacy with colleagues. We’ll also address how to stay positive and project enthusiasm in the face of trying circumstances, how to move your career forward through networking, and how to establish satisfying work friendships. The topic is perfect for twenty and early thirty-somethings from interns to early-career professionals.
Find a Soulcheck, Not a Paycheck
Want the formula for supercharging your professional development to achieve long-term career satisfaction? This session will reveal how you can discover a path to meaningful work or get the most out of your current job. For those who are graduating college soon or are focused on career change, we'll start with self-assessment, the process by which we learn more about ourselves and what we like and don't like in a work environment. We'll also talk about how to uncover your unique set of skills and how to research careers that map to your self-assessments and skills. Next, we'll address how to scope out opportunities and network in a chosen career. Last, we'll go through how to tailor a resume for each career that will make you stand out in the crowd despite a lack of industry experience. For those who are looking to increase their satisfaction in their current job, this session will provide guidance for sustaining a positive attitude, mentoring, taking advantage of training, growth, and volunteer opportunities, and practicing intrapreneurship. It's perfect for colleges and association, conference, and alumni groups.
