M303 - Followership for Millennials

Mon, May 07 | 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM | Room: 6DE

Millennials want to make a difference. They come into your organization with lots of ideas, enthusiasm, and an eagerness to learn. They are digital natives and naturally collaborative. But they have also been told their entire lives that they have to be leaders to be valued. When their leadership aspirations are frustrated, they disengage or leave. In fact, research shows it is the flip side---followership---that makes the difference to early career success and has greatest organizational impact. Yet Millennials are the least prepared generation to embrace the role. Followership is being recognized as the next important trend in training. Join the speakers, two of followership's most experienced trainers, in an interactive exploration of training Millennials in followership. This session is for everybody.

Adopt a new framework for employee recruitment, retention, and training that includes the complementary skills of leadership and followership.
