Video – Managing Gen Y

Following on from my last post ‘Training Gen Y’, I had a look at Youtube and found this interview by Harvard Business Publishing. As in the previous post, it discusses re-evaluating the Gen Y characteristics that have traditionally been seen as negatives, to understand how, if they’re properly understood they can be succesfully applied to training programs/the workplace and have significant positive results.

Interestingly, it also talks about the connection between Ys and Boomers being stronger than the connection between Ys and Xs, suggesting that mentoring of Ys by Boomers can also achieve some extremely positive results.

Anyway, here’s the Vid – please be aware, being from Harvard it’s obviously a bit ‘America-oriented’ but still very applicable to Aussie and Kiwi organisations…
