Presentation: Millennials Who Manage
Millennials are becoming the next generation of leaders. Today, however, as they move into management, they face difficult practical challenges. Reflecting on his extensive enterprise consulting and research experience, Dr. Chip Espinoza shows how to help transition them more smoothly into management.
The challenges Millennials face while transitioning into managerial leader roles are not unique to their generation. For instance, it can be an isolating and overwhelming experience for anyone. However, there are dynamics at play in today’s world that may amplify the challenges for Millennials making the managerial leap—social media being one.
I begin my presentation with a list of the top challenges young professionals experience when entering the workforce and strategies for overcoming them. I will also list how some of the challenges resurface when young professionals transition into management. It is important to note that many experience alienation and loneliness in the beginning.
The talk is detailed in terms of strengths, weaknesses, problems, opportunities, and causes.
