Managing Gen Y

Managing Generation Ymanagement

‚ÄėGeneration Y‚Äô is the name given to people born after 1980.This group represent a¬†growing part of the workforce, and brings new challenges and opportunities for¬†organisations¬†and managers.

Studies show Gen Y workers are typically more individualistic, materialistic and less community minded than their predecessors. They value personal expression, are comfortable multi-taskers and are tech-savvy.

Managers need to know how to adapt their approach to make the most of generation Y’s strengths, whilst maintaining discipline, motivation and group goals. This session lifts the lid on the mindset of Gen Y, and helps managers adapt to the challenges this generational shift represents.


Session purpose

This session helps participants to understand common differences in attitudes and preferences that mark out generation-Y workers from their predecessors, and what this means for those who manage them.

Participants will learn how to flex their approach to management in order to account for these generational differences, enabling them to reduce resistance, improve motivation and make the most of the unique strengths of generation Y.

  • Understand who Gen Y are and the management challenges you may face
