Millennials and GenZs are now the largest cohorts in the workforce, bringing with them a wealth of new ideas, energy, and creativity. However, they also face a significant challenge: a shortage of leadership skills. As a project manager, you may have to manage project teams from Millennials and Generation Z .  These two generations are shaking up the business world, and it’s up to you, as a project manager, to adapt to their expectations and create an environment that motivates and stimulates them. With the right approach, you can help this generation reach their full potential and contribute to the success of your organization. The workshop begins by defining what it means to be a leader in the modern era, and why Millennials and Gen Z need to step up and take on leadership roles in their personal and professional lives.
