A generationally diverse workforce is better equipped to respond to today’s high-flux and fast-moving workplace. Since Millennials became a majority of the labor force, generational differences have never been wider as each generation has a varying perspective of work, leadership, technology, and communication.
Ryan Jenkins, author and Inc.com columnist, and one of our keynote speakers, will present the session, “Next Generation Leadership: Proven Strategies to Engage Millennials and a Multi-Generational Workforce.”
“Fifty-two percent of workers say they are least likely to get along with someone from another generation,” Jenkins said. “Those who learn to lead and engage Millennials and transcend generational friction will gain the necessary competitive advantage in today’s fast-changing times,” he added.
Jenkins will help participants gain extreme clarity around what the generations are, learn why generations matter at work, and understand each generation’s perspective of leadership, communication, technology and work. Jenkins will teach the three keys for engaging a multigenerational workforce and give relevant examples of organizations successfully engaging a multigenerational workforce.
Jenkins has been speaking professionally as a Millennial and Generation Z keynote speaker for more than six years for hundreds of clients such as SunTrust, Toyota, and Johnson & Johnson. His top-ranked generational insights have been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, Inc., and SUCCESS Magazine.
His internationally recognized blog, podcast, and Inc.com column inspire and equip thousands of people every week. Jenkins’ passion, experience as a Millennial himself and his fresh and forward-thinking approach to generations have made him one of the most highly sought after generational and future-of-work keynote speakers. He is also a member of the National Speakers Association.
