How to Prepare Millennials for Leadership


Generation Y (Gen Y)-the generation of those born roughly between early 1980’s and mid 1990’s-is set to be the largest segment of the American workforce this year, 2020. This is not the only reason for which it is being so highly talked about in the work circles in the US. There are others:

  • It is the first generation to be born with access to technology almost from their birth, or at least their schooling days
  • This generation doesn’t need to be trained formally about technology since they already have had enough exposure to it

With their familiarity with technology being a given, the managements in organizations that hire them need to understand the unique qualities of this generation to be able to realize their full potential.

The many ways by which managements in the present-day organizations can bring the best out of the Millennials will be the topic of a very valuable webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, on February 27.

TrainHR brings the Founder of Simply HR, LLC, Tonia Morris, as the expert of this session. To register for this very important learning, please visit TrainHR .

This webinar has been approved for 1 HR (General) recertification credit hours toward aPHR, PHR, PHRca, SPHR, GPHR, PHRi and SPHRi recertification through HR Certification Institute (HRCI).

Viewing this webinar, its entirety qualifies for a recertification credit hour that may be counted toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification from SHRM. Credit is awarded based on the actual educational time spent in the program.


The focus of this webinar is in helping its participants understand the implications and consequences of the shifting nature of the American workforce. Although five generations are at work right now, it is estimated that by the end of 2020, the Millennials will make up half of it.

Managements have to thus prepare and brace themselves with the right strategies to be able to exploit the many capabilities this generation brings. Managements need to have a sound understanding of this generation’s aspirations and expectations.

During this webinar, in showing how to do this, Tonia will cover the following areas:

  • Mentorship
  • Think Laterally not Vertically
  • Meaningful Leadership Role
  • Feedback on Demand
  • Project Base Role
  • Develop Soft Skills

Those who work closely with the workforce, such as Managers, Supervisors, Leaders, Human Resource Professionals, and Shift leaders or Team, will benefit immensely from this course.
