Millennial Expert to Executives

Optimizing Millennials in the Workplace

There are all sorts of Millennial Experts, Millennial Consultants, Millennial Motivational Speakers, and Millennial Generation Experts, but what’s hilarious is that very few have hired, managed, and developed Millennials in a for-profit business, which makes what they share all just theory.

Millennials are the largest generation in the U.S. workforce, and managing them isn’t easy. Only after running a business with employees – not as a solo entrepreneur – did I really understand what it’s like to manage Millennials. There are tremendous opportunities to leverage this young talent, and they are extremely talented, if you can get past the fact that they do often seem to feel entitled. Yes, Millennials can be an asset. They can expand your organization and its capabilities, if you have the patience to train and be flexible.

Optimizing Millennials in the Workplace

Managing Millennials in the workplace involves creating an infrastructure to support training, and providing comprehensive and measurable development and oversight. Shifting your management style from boss to coach is essential in developing Millennials in the workplace. As a business owner, with taxes, employees, compensation benefits, healthcare payments, etc., I can assure you, you don’t want non-experts who have never actually managed Millennials themselves telling you the trappings of managing Millennials. My Managing Millennials toolkit, How to Build an Empire with Millennials, came about as a result of clients noticing and asking how I had such success with the Millennials in my firm.

The toolkit highlights Strategies to Optimize Millennials in Your Business:

  1. Create a value proposition that engages Millennials.
  2. Outline a recruiting process specifically for Millennials.
  3. Develop a growth plan to retain Millennials in the workplace.
  4. Understand junior vs. senior Millennials and their expectations.
