Training Gen Y ? Not a one time event.
2008-06-04 23:43:00
Baby Boomers are beginning to retire. In the next 10 years, the number of 55 and older retired workers are expected to increase by 50%. Therefore, Gen Y will be needed to pinch it and / or replace the ‘Boomers.’ This is why recruiting and retaining programs are so important. It is important to note ...

2008-05-30 15:30:00
Hello Everyone! Two colleagues, Carol Graser and Beth Bloomfield, and I are entering a research project on leadership for Generation Y, and we need your assistance. We have launched a very quick survey, and we would like to ask if you would be willing to take the survey. It is only seven questions and takes less than five minutes to take. To take the survey: Go to: Scroll to the right and enter in the numbers 61951. The survey is completely anonymous. If you are someone who is interested in being interviewed for the project, send an e-mail to, and we will give you a call. That’s it! We would so appreciate this, as it is going to help us work with leaders on how to meet the leadership needs for Generation Y in companies, communities, organizations and educational systems around the globe. Also, if you know of some Gen Y’s who would be willing to take the assessment, we invite you to pass this along to them. Thank-yo...

6 Ways to Get Respect Quickly, Despite Your Youth by Chuck Westbrook
2008-05-29 13:24:00
Chuck Westbrook has a great post on Employee Evolution back from August 6 (but is still relevant) on how Gen Y’s can get respect in the workplace, despite their youth. I had an interview last month with Jacci Schiff, and we were talking about this very point. We discussed how many Gen Y’s just simply may not know about these career skills. As a Baby Boomer, I believe it’s important for us to talk to our kids and students about doube checking our typos, showing up on time, how to listen, how to ask great questions and how to be a leader. Another skill that many Gen Y’s are saying is missing is face to face time, especially face to face networking. Human connection happens through dialogue, through a smile and through telling stories which build common ground. Let’s all take the time to work on these skills that Chuck mentions. We can all use a refresher course. Great post Chuck!

Interview with Veronica Karaman
2008-05-29 02:32:00
Inspiring true champions is the essence of Veronica Karaman’s life and the reason why she has become a successful life coach, speaker, teacher, motivator, and author. At the age of five, Veronica began her golf career and her quest to become a champion. At this early age, as her father placed a putter in her hand, she knew that golf would become her closest friend. She found out later in life that golf would also become her worst enemy when she failed. Success in golf, achieving all A’s in academics, and striving for perfection, were all things that she worked diligently at accomplishing. She graduated as the valedictorian of her high school and graduate school classes, and won many golf tournaments. However, all the trophies and triumphs were not enough to fill the void and the loneliness in her heart. Her father’s death when she was fifteen only fueled Veronica’s determined pursuit to become a champion. At the height of her college career as a scholarship a...

What Change is Generation Y Actually Creating? By Monica O’Brien
2008-05-28 16:09:00
Monica O’Brien has a great post today on BrazenCareerist on what Gen Y is actually creating in our world, and here is my comment back: As a Baby Boomer, I have watched my parents (Veterans) work their fingers to the bone, and I have now watched as Gen X went through the Dot Com Boom and Bust. I am the parent of 3 Gen Y’s, and here is what I think. I believe that Gen Y is here to show us that the complexity we have been so wound up in over the last 20 years is ridiculous. We create death in careers through endless meetings, we stifle creativity, and we have this belief that was worn out ages ago that says “Thou must work your fingers to the bone in order to get ahead.” That is ridiculous, and it’s killing us. Gen Y knows how to get the job done and get it done efficiently and effectively so that we have time to do what we all want to do…have free time to play and as my son says “chill.” So, let’s start looking at the lessons...

Are You Underutilizing Younger Employees?
2008-05-26 16:59:00
Great post on Harvard Business Review by Bronwyn Fryer.  Why do we so often dismiss or underutilize our younger employees?   Is it because we think we know it all, or do we think these young men and women are our kids, so of course, they can’t possibly bring value to the table? Over the past two years, I have learned more by spending time with hundreds of Gen Ys than I have learned in a long time.  These young men and women are bright, tech savvy, worldly, civic minded and quite resourceful.  They have hutzpah!  Before you decide to dismiss a twenty-something point of view or their talent, think twice.  Get to know them, and you may just find that you will learn something quite valuable…that age means nothing when it comes to wisdom.
