Gen-Y expert Bea Fields answers questions from leaders enrolled in the Leader As Coach Fast Track Program
Are you a manager who leads Gen-Y employees? If you answered yes then you already know Gen-Y is unlike any other generation you've had the opportunity to lead.
- Enjoy working together, are highly connected
- Seek work-life balance
- Expect to be highly successful, are upbeat
- Reward and recognition driven
- Short term focused
- Supremely tech savvy
- Want managers they can admire
If you try to manage Gen-Y using an old, outdated, command-and-control style of leadership, this generation will walk out your door before lunch. And before the end of the day, they'll blog, IM, and text about their experience (warning their friends!).
Times have changed and managers must change with the times or be left behind.
The most effective way to lead Gen-Y is using a coach approach.
In the IATF Leader As Coach Fast Track Program, participants learn how to make the shift from a traditional style of leadership to that of Leader-Coach.
The IATF Leader As Coach Fast Track Program is a new and highly interactive distance learning program led by Tom Heck, President and Founder of the IATF.
Gen-Y expert Bea Fields (coauthor of Millennial Leaders) visited with the participants in the summer 2008 IATF Leader As Coach Fast Track Program session and she shared important information about how to manage Gen-Y. Participants were able to ask questions and get specific answers to their management questions.
