Course Detail: BUS138 - Leading Gen Y and Gen Z - NEW!

Purdue University Fort Wayne leverages the resources of Purdue University by teaming up with their MEP program to offer this training.

The Mission:
To advance economic prosperity, health, and quality of life in Indiana and beyond. Purdue Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) provides high value, affordable solutions to help businesses increase profitability. As advocates for Indiana's thousands of manufacturers, our staff leverages resources in both the public and private sectors to help identify areas of improvement, streamline processes, and ultimately increase competitiveness.

Leading Gen Y and Gen Z
Estimates show the workforce now has more Gen Y and Gen Z than any other generation. On a daily basis, Baby Boomers are retiring by the thousands, which makes this statement even more so. As with each generation before them, Generations Y & Z have their own way of looking at things. What interests them, what motivates them, what drives them is different than Boomers and Gen X. This course helps leaders to understand those differences and how to best lead teams with Gen Y and Gen Z in them.

Learning Objectives: 
  • Identify the relationship between leadership behavior and organizational culture. 
  • Understand the link between generational growth, Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, and McClelland's Acquired-Needs Theory.

  • Describe intrinsic and extrinsic ways to motivate your employees.

Intended Audience: Anyone in a leadership role within their organization.
