communicating with millennials

As a manager or peer interacting with employees at your company, does it ever feel like you’re having a conversation with a brick wall?

Do you find yourself talking to someone who’s listening with the “one earbud in/one earbud out” method?

Are their eyes glued to their screen, chatting and emailing with 2 other people, appearing to be entirely unaware of what you’re saying?

If any of this rings a bell, you just might be having a conversation with a Millennial.

Don’t worry though, you’re not alone. Even Millennials themselves have had this thought during a conversation with another Millennial. And, while the picture painted above might feel familiar (perhaps even a little frustrating), there’s something else you need to know.

Millennials aren’t necessarily bad communicators. They’re just different communicators. That said, if we take a step back and try to understand the “why” behind this, we might actually find that there’s benefit in this type of interaction.

Click through the SlideShare below to get an idea of what your Millennials want in the workplace when it comes to communication styles, and how those wants and needs might differ from that of your Baby-Boomers or Gen X-ers!

Still have more questions? We don't blame you. This can be a lot to take in.

How many times have we heard that word conveniently and casually used today?

[SlideShare] 3 Steps for Wrapping Up a Year of Business

wrapping up a year of business

It can be hard not to immediately jump into the start of a new year. 

New ideas, new goals, new business initiatives, new metrics to hit—all of this can be very exciting. However, it's critical to first take a moment to reflect on your previous year from a business sense.

Without doing this, you're setting yourself up to have a very similar year as the one before, successes and mistakes included.

All year-end reflections and plans for the year ahead should be driven from data. While this can be difficult to wrap your mind around at first, we've put together a few steps with strategies included to get you started:
