Workshop Outline

The millennium generation is often regarded as completely different from other generations as far as work attitude and other social and economic behaviours are concerned. This generation is now entering the workforce. Notwithstanding their strengths, working with the millennials are sometimes challenging to the workplace mentors or VPET teachers who play the mentoring role.

This workshop will discuss the work style and culture of the millennium generation with reference to local surveys, introduce management strategies such as Situational Leadership Model, and share tips about fostering a positive work culture as an effective mentor.

On completion of this workshop, the participants would be able to:

  • describe the work style and culture of the millennials; and
  • discuss appropriate strategies for effective mentoring.
