Managing Millennial’s – ½ Day Conference

How do you effectively Manage Millennials and Gen Z workers in your business?

Based on a 2019 Deloitte Report Millennials and Gen Z are no longer the ‘future’ workforce, they are the present, making up more than 40 percent of Australia’s working population.

The days of Command and Control leadership are over, Younger Generations of employees do not respect titles, you have to earn their respect, and they expect collaboration and involvement in decision making as a day to day practice.

So how do you maintain control and give direction, and gain respect for your authority as a business owner or manager and tick these boxes as well?

Whilst our Gen Z and Millennials are often well-educated people, there’s a lot of negative press about Millennials as difficult employees. However, there is very little practical information available to business owners and managers of growing companies that can assist them in getting the best out of their Millennial workforce.

Some companies are even avoiding hiring Millennials because it is “too Hard”.

Younger generations of workers value different things. Work differently and expect different outcomes from their careers and work environments. Different isn’t bad or better – different can be a huge advantage to your businesses growth strategy if you learn how to harness its power.

Mindfull Parenting – July 23

Let me ask you a question:

What if you could find one simple way to finally break down the barriers preventing you from really connecting with your child?

Or would you love to: Have a simple, predictable and repeatable recipe to follow one that will allow you to raise children you will be truly proud of……without giving up the fun and enjoyment that can be one of the main ingredients in your parenting recipe?

Who this IS for:

  • Anyone who is a parent
  • Feels tired, frustrated and anxious
  • Worries about the future for their children
  • Wants to know how to be the best possible parent
  • Wants to break the cycle of a dysfunctional background

Who this is NOT for:

  • Anyone who feels 100% happy with how they are doing as a parent

Why are we doing this? We’re looking for like-minded individuals who:

  1. The secret to understanding why your child doesn’t always respond the way you want
  2. The communication hack to know what your child is really thinking
  3. The ABC system that you don’t learn in school
  4. Why “one size fit’s all” doesn’t work in parenting

Are you doing things the hard way?

  • You’re following the same parenting process hoping for a different result
  • You’re waking up with a feeling of anxiety, wondering how you will get through yet another day
  • You have days where, if you’re honest, you know you love your child, but do you really like them?
  • You’re sick and tired of all of the so called “gurus” telling you what you are doing wrong
  • You secretly think the best part of your day starts when the kids go to bed.
