Hello, my name is Generation Z

Jonah Stillman, a best-selling author and member of Generation Z himself, is determined that industries and leader don’t repeat the mistakes of the past. In the late 1990’s the Baby Boomers were rocking every marketplace they touched. So much so, that nobody paid attention when Generation X showed up and kaboom! Collisions were everywhere!

History is repeating itself, as most of the attention is on the Millennials, with little focus on Generation Z. If leaders treat Gen Z like the Millennials, it will backfire.

Audience takeaways:

  • The events and conditions that shaped Gen Z.
  • The seven key traits that define the generation.
  • What value propositions are necessary to connect with Gen Z.
  • Where Gen Z can lead the way at work.
  • Where Gen Z needs the most mentoring.
