Counter Mentor Leadership
How to Unlock the Potential of the 4-Generation Workplace
Counter Mentor Leadership is not just about leading Millennials, it's about adapting to a workplace that has radically changed in the past 15 years. Technology - and a generation tethered to technology - has created enormous change in every company. Distractions have multiplied. Jobs are increasingly more complex (at every level). Generational conflict is a very real problem.
How has your company adapted?
