The Multi-Generational Workforce

There is no doubt that the number of generations in the workplace is growing. The age of retirement has increased, meaning that more older generations are staying in the workforce while younger generations enter it.

Millennial Myths Persist

  Having done numerous Millennial presentations and Coaching Human Resource folks and Business Leaders around best practices for Developing Millennial Leaders it is still fascinating to hear the myths that persist when it comes to this highly sought after and impacting generation.

A Coach is Not (Always) a Cheerleader

Twice over the past month I was reminded of something so basic and yet so profound I though it important enough to share. Professional Coaches are not meant to be primarily your cheerleader.

Millennial Entreprenuers are Searching for Purpose

Master Millennials?

I have been inundated with requests for coaching, speaking engagements, and workshops from business leaders and organizations on how to best engage their Millennial workforce over the last year. There are "best practices" when employing this age group but the systems of engagement shift from company to company based on the culture of each. I need [...]

Working as an Executive Coach the needs landscape is constantly changing. Through listening to the needs of our clients we change what we offer in our suite of [...]

Engaging Change as a Team

I hate change, change is uncomfortable, change creates more problems than we are currently dealing with, changes never sticks. These are but a few of the comments I have heard over the years working with my business leader clients (personal development clients as well but that is for another blog post). Interestingly my entire function [...]
