Coaching and Developing Talent for Leaders

Be recognized as a mentor in a multi-generational workforce. Master coaching techniques to drive employee engagement, especially among Gen Z and Millennial employees.

Overview

Generation Z and Millennials now make up almost half of the workforce. Compared to preceding generations, they have a radically different expectation of their leaders.

Millennials and Gen Z want to work with “Coaches” more than “Directors”. They are no longer satisfied with taking orders in a stable job. Instead, they want to grow, be challenged, and be part of the creative process.
