As Boomers retire, Millennials are outnumbering them in the workforce. Millennials and soon Gen Z’s must work with Gen Xer’s who are new to high-level positions. Both age groups have several years less experience than their predecessors. Many Millennials are eager to start contributing, but they are unfamiliar with the new culture of work, which is being redefined as they enter it, and constantly changing, chaotic, and challenging. There is a resulting need for accelerated developmental learning activities such as coaching to help new employees and aspiring leaders fast track from basic workplace survival to successful team lead, manager, and leader. Organizations have seen the need for departing employees to mentor replacement employees, yet few have embraced this strategy. Corporations don’t want to spend resources on new employees who won’t stay long.
This presentation is about the critical need for coaching bold millennials who are floundering at Maslow’s Survival level, but eager to advance quickly, and for strategies that are transformative. Many articles have been written about Boomers leaving and the nature of the Millennial generation; the purpose of this discussion is to raise awareness for coaches of the background issues facing this new generation of workers, and the tools to help them develop into strategic, innovative, ethical leaders to take our nation forward in a complex technological world. Coaches will be better prepared to help motivated new employees in the workplace move forward more quickly and successfully.
