Not Everyone Gets A Trophy: How to Manage Generation Y

Speaking Topics
  • Don't Want to Work on Thursdays! Introducing H.O.T. Management™:

    How can managers get more work and better work out of employees and also give them more flexibility in their working conditions so they can achieve some balance? Flexibility and accountability must go hand in hand. Give employees what they want and, in exchange, require them to work smarter, faster, and better. In his newest trademark presentation, Bruce Tulgan shares what the best managers on the front lines of the workplace are actually doing to bring out the best in employees. Bruce calls this approach "hands-on transactional (HOT) management." When managers are willing to untie their hands, roll up their sleeves, and engage in hands-on transactional management, they can transform the demands of employees into levers to drive performance through the roof.

  • Managing the Generation Mix™:

    A generational shift is underway as the workforce ages. Over the next several years, organizations will experience waves of retirement among Silents and older Boomers. The less populous Gen X and Gen Y will provide a shrinking pool of prime-age workers. Meanwhile, these four generations are working side by side, each at different life and career stages, each with different perspectives, needs, and expectations. This presentation will help you turn age diversity into a strategic advantage. Foster understanding and leverage the strengths of all generations. Avoid clashes and improve productivity. Learn best practices to motivate individual performance and maximize teamwork. Use age diversity as a lens through which to see the future, and manage the changing of the guard in your organization.

  • New Leaders™: Developing the Next Generation:

    The latest business dilemma facing organizations across the country is the leadership crisis. On the one hand, aging workers will be retiring in large numbers over the next ten years, leaving behind a growing number of leadership vacancies. On the other hand, fewer talented young workers are willing to follow the old-fashioned career paths that guaranteed leadership succession in the workplace of the past. This presentation will help you address and solve the leadership crisis in your organization. It offers business leaders, human resource professionals, and emerging leaders themselves new ways to think about leadership and new ways to prepare the next generation for leadership roles.

  • Managing Generation X® and Generation Y™: How to Bring Out the Best in Today's Young Talent:

    Together, Generation X and Generation Y comprise 45 percent of today's workforce. As they become the majority of the prime-age workforce, Gen X and Gen Y are completing the workplace revolution that has been underway since the early 1990s. A whole new set of norms and values are taking hold in the workplace. This presentation can help you gain deep insight into where young workers are coming from and where they are trying to go in their lives and careers. Discover solutions to key Gen X and Gen Y staffing concerns, as well as best practices to recruit, train, develop, motivate, reward, and retain these valuable young workers.
