Gen Xers are in the prime of their management careers. Now between 35 and 50 years old, they occupy leadership positions throughout the agency and in every client industry. Endowed with a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, they’ve been shaking things up for decades. They’ve also constantly frustrated Boomer bosses and Millennial teams alike, who don’t get their manic get-it-done-at-all-costs approach. Many have moved like bulls from one china shop to another, blindly making the same mistakes–but being forgiven for pushing things through or just doing it themselves.
This worked fine in a business atmosphere where “the ends always justify the means”, a formula that rewards superstars. But in the current business world, how you did it is just as important as getting it done. Success is defined as achieving outstanding results with the close involvement and good will of the rest of the team. It’s more than simply paying lip service to teamwork. Direct reports, colleagues and senior managers have to be a vital part of the process, and feel it every day.
On November 13, join Jeff Hiller, JB Training Solutions, as he addresses the following issues:
  • How do you motivate young workers who don’t want to hear it?
  • How do you champion your own ideas without killing initiative?
  • How do you redirect other groups without upsetting everyone?
  • How do you impress execs as a top performer and team player?
What You Can Expect From This Webinar:
You will learn why highly successful managers make similar mistakes; how overall performance and long term prospects are affected; and what management adjustments you can make to deliver the same or better results, with stronger collaboration and much less friction.
Who Should Attend?
Mid-level managers in every agency discipline, ideally (but not necessarily) participating with other colleagues on business; as well as bosses or direct reports to mid-levels, who want better insight into improving their working dynamics.
