Time For a New Approach to Motivating Millennials

Share This:

Article Written by:  Susan Fowler,

A business magazine in Korea interviewed me for an article on the science of motivation. I didn’t realize the article was focused on millennials until I saw the headline — the only part written in English.

No matter where I work in the world, the question of motivating millennials seems to pop up. Understandable, since this group of people ages 16 to 37 constitutes the largest segment of the world’s current and future labor force (35% in the U.S.). I can’t read the article in Korean, so I thought I’d capture the essence of what I really think about motivating millennials.

Article Written by Chris Morris,

  • Gen Z accounts for 61 million people in the U.S., a group larger than Gen X.
  • Hiring Gen Zers will require more of a marketing effort by companies. This group is looking more for good day-to-day work experiences.
  • Managers say it will be more difficult to manage and train Gen Z employees than older generations, since they are not as savvy at social interaction, according to a national survey by APPrise Mobile.

A new generation is starting to enter the workforce, and the office as you know it could be about to change dramatically. Generation Z — people born after 1996 — is about to hit the working world in a big way.

9 Negotiation Tips for People Who Hate Negotiating

Share This:

Article Written by:  Sara Lindberg, Business Insider

  • Negotiation is not the same thing as conflict— you have to be willing to compromise and/or say no if you don’t like the offer.
  • Though it’s widely hated, being able to negotiate is a skill you need if you want to get ahead in your career.
  • Being optimistic, prepared, and using active listening can boost your changes of success.

When I left the comfort of a steady paycheck to pursue full-time freelance work, I had no idea how difficult negotiating in the work world was going to be.

For the prior 20 years, I’d lived in the land of education. I worked in a system that pays a set amount of money based on two criteria: the number of years you’ve been working, and the amount of education you have.

As a result, I was poorly prepared for the world of freelance, where being successful requires you to be a master negotiator — something I’ve always hated doing.

Minimizing or ignoring your impact on others.
