About this event

Who it's for:

Senior Executives, CEOs and Founders, Rising Executives, Leaders hiring and managing multigenerational talent

What you'll learn:

The Gen Y/Z talent dilemma and leadership crises in the making. Boomers and Xers worked their assess off to achieve, achieve, achieve. Long hours. Missed birthdays. Broken marriages/families. Poor health. The consequences for many have been significant. Gen Y aren't going to do it anymore, and Z's aren't even willing to start. They expect completely different things from work, including: fulfillment, alignment with purpose and values, impact in the company and in the world. They expect business to be a force for good, and sustainable. They want to be appreciated. They want growth opportunities. And they want deep connection with their peers and team. Yet, they don't want to go into the office often, if ever, and they want a 35-40 hour a week. And what of the business who say's "No", come to the office, work hard, pay your dues, etc? Well, switching jobs is as easy as shipping back your old lap top and receiving a new one in the mail. You don't even need to leave your couch. Or you can join the "quiet quitting" movement, and just disengage. So how do leaders resolve this dilemma?
