Working with Generations X and Y
Speaker: Maylan Newton
Do you ever find members of your team frustrated, tense, distracted, upset or unreasonable with other members of the team? Wonder why? Well, Gen Y thinks Gen X is a bunch of whiners. Gen X believes Gen Y is arrogant. And everyone thinks the Boomers are self-absorbed workaholics. While the younger generation's entitled attitude is clashing with the older worker's values, Gen Y's presence is improving workplace policy for everyone. Once we understand their differences and learn what is important for each group we can work together effectively.
4:00 - 6:00pm
Growing Your Business By Accepting Risk
Speaker: Mitch Schneider, Automotive Training Institute
Nothing ventured: Nothing gained... The promise of extraordinary reward generally brings with it the risk of extraordinary failure... And, yet, "You miss 100% of the shots you never take..." (Wayne Gretsky)
Like the turtle, we never make progress unless we stick our necks out. But, how do you manage the "Cost/Value Ratio of Risk & Reward" when each decision you make impacts the future of everyone involved in your business.
You gather all the data you can... analyze... evaluate... assess... consider... formulate... project... But, sooner or later, you will have to decide. And, once you do: good or bad, right or wrong, it will be time to step off the cliff into the abyss and execute! Let's talk about risks and rewards and making the right decisions to grow your business and turn your dreams into reality!"
