Counter Mentor Leadership
How to Unlock the Potential of the 4-Generation Workplace
By Kelly Riggs and Robby Riggs
Successfully navigate the tensions between Millennials and Boomers in the workplace and thrive in the tech-driven age by becoming a CounterMentor leader.
For the first time in history, the younger generation has something more to offer an employer than enthusiasm. In the past, a new employee was dependent upon years of service, but now digital technology and social media have exploded into the workplace. The younger generation possess the knowledge and the practical experience to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of social media and digital tools.
Unfortunately, most companies, led primarily by old-school Baby Boomers, have tenaciously clung to the old-world order. The reasons are as varied as the companies, but they are all, sadly, proving to be lethal. The technology revolution has impacted more than the new generation of employees. It has created a completely new set of leadership challenges - time compression, complexity, pace of change, and increasing levels of distraction - all created by the tether of technology.
The CounterMentor is the new leader who taps into the wealth of knowledge available from the younger generations and lets their company "grow from below." Counter Mentor Leadership will:
- Show you how to discuss new workplace dynamics
- Explain how to attract and retain the Millennial workforce
- Explore the new challenges of leadership inherent with the explosion of technology - time compression, distractions, complexity, pace of change
- Detail the CounterMentor leadership model and prescribe specific tactics and techniques for addressing both the old and new leadership issues
