Millennials grew up with technology, their work/life divide is fuzzy at best, and they expect to make an impact from day one.  With Baby Boomers reaching retirement age and not enough Generation Xers to fill their shoes, accelerated development of millennials is necessary to ensure continued organizational performance.   This facilitated panel will offer an opportunity to hear from all three generations and to understand how management styles might adjust to quickly prepare the largest generation in the workforce to take a leadership role.

Learning Objectives Accomplished by the Presentation:

·         Understand the specifics of the Baby Boomer population gap and generational characteristics.

·         Consider management styles and their effectiveness in communicating to Millennials.

 Importance to FPD Members

·         Ability to understand and fill the leadership gap created by retiring Baby Boomers.

Learn to lead an effective organization with a Millennial workforce.
