This event is presented in part for AZTC members by the Council’s Startup + Entrepreneurship Committee.
There are 80 million members of Gen Y and their numbers will soon exceed any other generation in the workforce, reaching 75% of all employees by 2025. Bringing new ideas, innovation, and energy to companies around the world, millennials also bring unique expectations and demands, forcing employers to rethink the workplace and their approach to growing and retaining talent.
Combining their years of experience in talent development, Herb Sendek (Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Arizona State University) and Buddy Hobart (President and CEO, Solutions 21) have co-written Gen Y Now: Millennials and the Evolution of Leadership (Wiley, 2014). Outlining timeless leadership strategies and concrete and practical implementation steps, Sendek and Hobart guide managers and leaders through the process of understanding how to shift their mindset to maximize the skill-set of those early in their careers or just entering the workforce.
To celebrate the launch of the book, Sendek and Hobart are inviting leaders of all kinds to the book launch and signing on the evening of Tuesday, November 11 at the tech incubator desarrollo on Mill Avenue in Tempe. Beer, wine, and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be provided to all guests and the first one hundred registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
