As a Millennials Expert, most people ask me… Why are you so passionate about the topic of Millennials, are you one? The short answer is no but I sure know how they feel… You see I have spent the last 21 years working in the field of People as a HR Practitioner and Strategist and Leadership Coach and I am continually asked by CEO’s, Business Owners and Leaders:
- Why are Millennials so different to all the other generations?
- Why is it so hard to attract, engage and retain the best Millennials?
- Why do all my Millennial employees keep leaving? Is it me or them…?
- How can I improve the way I manage and communicate with Millennials?
So began a personal quest to break the Millennial stigma and develop coaching & leadership programs that actually made a difference. To start out I embarked on my own research journey… As I was personally having the exact same problems in my own businesses, and initially what I found was that…
“The existing Millennials research, prior to conducting my own Australian study, was either very consumer-based, extremely general, really outdated, and a great deal of the published data came out of the United States. It was also really really negative…
And there was nothing specifically focusing on Millennial employee workplace behaviours.”
So armed with my own research and personal experience (and after many many failures along the way) I am now sharing my secrets to attracting, engaging and empowering Millennials.
