Secrets for Winning at Work: The Handbook for Emerging Professionals and Career Success

It’s not easy to enter the workforce today. For the first time in history, four generations are sharing the workplace — and sometimes it feels like they are living in four different worlds. How can young professionals navigate through the traditional traditionalists, the still-booming boomers, the extra-independent Gen-X-ers and your own generation, the tech-or-die Gen-Ys? Millennial expert Jessica Bacal — and seasoned veteran Kate White will use real-world examples to teach you how to navigate the workforce in a language that is friendly, current and actionable. Designed for millennial generation professionals, this session will help you create a personal action plan for career success.

We will explore:
• Potential points of conflict at work and how to handle them;
• Strategies to master the art of cross-generational communication;
• Building a positive relationship with your manager;
• How to accept constructive feedback; and
• Ways to obtain and create the career opportunities you want and need
