We’ve long known that employees tend to prefer to work toward the top of their skill set, and they want to be engaged and have a sense of purpose at work. What’s different now? The lion’s share of today’s workforce (68%) is comprised of Gen Xers and Millennials, who value these elements even more than previous generations.
This generational shift is putting a different demand on leaders and managers. In fact, approaches that have worked in the past may have the opposite effect now: causing tension, stifling innovation, and driving turn-over. The good news is there is an approach that can improve morale and performance: facilitative leadership.
In this presentation, learn trends driving the change, a practical approach to the facilitative leadership style, and why and how it works.
- Strengthen understanding of how and why management and leadership styles are changing
- Deepen knowledge of a great solution for leading and managing today’s workforce
