I spent the holidays hiking in the mountains of North Carolina with my family. It was great way to gather perspective on the importance of what we do to make a difference in the world.
It is time for me to start blogging. I have too much to say and can’t reach a large enough audience quickly enough. My “people” tell me this is the most effective way to scream it on the mountain. So blogging it is!!
Who am I?
I am Michele Norris, Navigational Facilitator.
What difference do I make?
I empower organizational leaders and individuals to discover their true north. This clarity of self-awareness anchors and propels them to capitalize on potential and possibilities.
Why is this important?
In the next six years, the demographic tsunami will change the workplace dramatically. Millennials will be 51% of the workforce in 2020 and 75% in 2025. Their leadership trajectory to replace Boomers is faster than any other in history.
Why am I concerned?
I have information to make this transition smoother and provide profitable organizational improvement and long lasting sustainability.
What if you could be assured that the next generation of leaders will create more sustainable value for their organizations?
Would you act today?
The research that I have done has provided me with a roadmap for “The Future @ Work”. My 30 years a Sales Leader in Corporate America and my 9 years of studying the generational implications of workplace demographics tell me that we are in for a renaissance in the workforce. I have been in thousands of organizations and I innately read corporate cultures and their impact on success.
I will publish a series of blogs that I think are the critical changes coming to the workforce. Whether you are an organizational leader, a middle manager, a frontline employee, a Traditionalist, a Boomer, a Gen Xer, or a Millennial (aka Gen Y), my goal is to provide information that will help you and your organization create and innovate. To compete globally, organizations must create and innovate. The old ways of doing the things we have always done will not be successful in the new economy.
I passionately believe that I can contribute to individual and organizational success by sharing what I have discovered. I welcome your thoughts and comments as we embark into the New Year.
