Are you looking to make the most of your new class of high-potential employees? JB Training Solutions specializes in onboarding, training, and retaining this unique group.

Navigating the business world as a fresh-faced, eager millennial is a tricky proposition. Unfortunately, there is no blueprint for workplace success. Yet, if millennials want to stand out, get ahead, and move up at work, they must master the “soft” business skills early on in their careers.

We know millennials. We've helped develop high-potential employees at several Fortune 100 companies including Discover, Walgreens, Abbott Laboratories, and ConocoPhillips, and we are the great defenders of millennials. We know that this generation is not better or worse than any other generation – they are just different. The reality is that by 2020, millennials will account for 50% of our global employees, so we better figure out how to work with them.

We know managers. We understand the frustration and tension you have with millennial employees. Across all industries, managers complain that millennials are entitled, arrogant, unable to make decisions, and reluctant to take initiative. We can help you understand why millennials are the way they are and offer specific tactics for how to best work with this unique group.

We believe it's about meeting in the middle. We know how to bridge the gap.

Generation Z: What You Need To Know Now

Who is shaking up our workplace next? Generation Z, Generation C (connected), Generation M (multitasking) or the Internet Generation. No one knows quite yet what their name will be, but we can all rest assured that they will annoy their millennial managers. Just as every new generation entering the workforce frustrates, mystifies, and downright miffs the "old people", this next generation will not disappoint. The pendulum usually swings between generations with parents wanting for their kids what they never had - leaving almost complete opposites fighting to stay alive in the manager-employee relationship. As a rebellion from the helicopter parents, Generation Z is being raised to be more self-directed which may clash with their “everything as a team” millennial managers. Who exactly is Generation Z, and what do you need to be thinking about to prepare your company to embrace and engage your soon-to-be employees? Hear from a generational expert, and get a step ahead by learning tangible tips to begin building your leadership pipeline today.

The Good, Bad, & Ugly: Giving And Receiving Feedback

The majority of professionals cringe when it comes time for evaluations, self assessments, and even everyday feedback. Lack of communication contributes to 80% of workplace issues. Many employees associate feedback with the annual review, which happens once a year between a manager and a subordinate. The reality is that feedback is a daily process that can happen across all levels of an organization – especially among team members that work side-by-side. Rarely do employees make it a point to check in to say, “How’s it going? What is going well? What isn’t working?” The presenter discusses how to make these informal conversations a routine practice among colleagues. In this keynote, participants learn to break down walls and instill a feedback culture that is transparent, comfortable, and inspiring.
