I help small to mid-sized businesses bridge generational communication and workplace mindset gaps for collaborative, engaged, and flourishing teams.
The rumors are true. A multi-generational employee base CAN actually achieve together, succeed together, and communicate effectively. It's all about developing a common ground - a base language, a commonality. It sounds like an unachievable utopia, but my clients are living there - Millennials are staying put, multi-generational teams are flourishing, and engagement is soaring to new heights. Your team can be next.
Millennials and Centennials are now the bulk of the workforce, taking on management roles and leadership positions within organizations. So, understanding your largest generation of employees is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. My master’s degree was rooted in understanding the challenges and support systems needed for Millennials and Centennials, and I have found such extreme success in using CliftonStrengths to achieve it, including noticeably lower attrition rates specific to these groups.
A very important attribute within these generations is their need for purpose in their work - and defining that purpose is most often the missing piece. Have you heard that from your team? "I don't know what my place is here, or what I uniquely contribute." Do you stare blankly back at them with complete confusion as to why they're unable to find any contentment in a stable work environment? Through a Strengths-based approach, I use one-on-one coaching and team workshops and trainings to help all levels of employees and managers better understand their individual contributions to the team, as well as more intentional and productive communication amongst one another.
CliftonStrengths gives you a vocabulary, and I teach you how to use it.
As a high Learner®, find confidence in knowing my desire to truly learn about the unique needs of your team runs deeply. Is communication the biggest barrier? Do your managers need individual coaching? Do your Millennial and Centennial team members need a more outlined purpose? Let’s figure it out, craft a plan, and get to it.
