I think I figured out why Millennials are being talked about again in such quantity—it’s because it’s graduation season. They’re entering the workforce. Or maybe they’re already a part of your organization. Nevertheless, you, as a venue manager, will be working with them, so it’s imperative you understand how to motivate and engage them.
However, it’s not just Millennials you have to consider. The Baby Boomers are still working, and more people from that generation are retiring later in life. Then you have the Gen X crowd to accommodate.
One of the ways we’re helping you manage different generations in your organization is through a training session at VenueConnect 2015 in Baltimore, Aug. 1-4. Jack Messenger, vice president of instruction and a certified trainer at Dale Carnegie Training, will lead a discussion on “Motivating and Engaging Different Generations.”
For example, Millennials want a workplace environment that offers flexible hours to allow a work-life balance, managers who trust them to do their work, and the availability of incentives for higher performance, according to a Dale Carnegie Training white paper.
And since more Millennials are in the workplace, that means more of them are in leadership roles. For young professionals, we’re offering a seminar called “From Friendship to Leadership,” led by Lindsay Adams, CSPGlobal, a principal at Teamocracy in Australia. Attendees will learn the essential traits of leadership, the must-do actions of leaders, and the critical items new leaders must avoid.
But wait, there’s more.
U.S. Navy SEAL Curt Cronin will present a session titled “Building Unstoppable Teams,” during which he’ll introduce to attendees an integrated leadership framework that identifies the key values, tasks, actions, disciplines, and attitudes required for success for any generation.
Then we’ll also offer more leadership training with the session, “You Can’t Make Omelettes Without Breaking Eggs: The Messy Work of Refining Your Leadership” Attendees at this session—led by Adams and Paul Bridle, CEO of Excellence Squared Limited—will learn how connecting people, processes, and performance creates profits and how identifying the right measurements and engaging people drives better results.
Whether you’re a current leader or a leader on the rise, VenueConnect offers several sessions to help you be successful. Register now, and we’ll see you in Baltimore!
