PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP: The Leadership Dilemma - How to Unlock the Potential of the 4-Generation Workplace

April 03, 2019
12:30 PM - 5:00 PM

RJM Construction

Golden Valley, MN 55427

The workplace has changed dramatically in the past 20 years. Technology and a technology-infused generation of employees have radically impacted workplace culture and performance, which has resulted in sending most old-school Boomer managers into a rant about "these Millenials!" The truth is that Millennials are NOT the problem. The real problem is a scarcity of effective leadership and a stubborn refusal to move away from "the way we've always done it."

Effective leadership has always been a challenge, but today's workplace has tossed several additional variables into the equation, making it feel almost impossible to lead effectively. That is unless you're willing to learn, grow, and adapt. In this presentation, Kelly takes a hard look at the realities of the modern workplace and offers tangible solutions to creating what every leader strives for - a culture of accountability.
