Hey everyone and welcome to the GOAL MAGIC podcast, where it’s our mission to get you unstuck. Today I got to interview Lisa Lord. If you may not recall or hadn’t heard heard, I interviewed Lisa a few months ago about her transition from corporate into professional coaching. Lisa and I chat about millennials and where her fascination with them came from, as well as how she is rocking the corporate world by changing the conversation about Millennials. I was really surprised to hear what Lisa uncovered about Millennials and their self-expectations.
Since there was so much to talk about, we split this episode into two parts. Here's the first part!
Top Takeaways from my interview with Lisa:
Instead of learning how to “manage” Millennials, corporate needs to learn to better tap into their talents as a more efficient way to use their resources
Millennials are able to focus on doing something they’re passionate about because, like Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, so many of our needs are met AND there are a plethora of options to make money...which means Millennials can have the option to decide where they spend their professional energy and can craft a life on their own terms
Millennials have a lot of self expectations, driven from their use of technology, from things being “on-demand” and from their parents telling them “they can do anything” (which ended up being self-defeating because there are *so* many choices!)
Millennials are going to change our society and especially corporate in so many positive ways - it’s corporate’s responsibility to harness that energy and talent
