• Recognise generational stereotypes
• Identify factors that cause worker dissatisfaction and attrition.
• Communicate effectively with all four generations
• Create organizational systems and incentives for successfully recruiting, retaining, motivating and managing a
  multi-generational workforce.

recruiting brochures, and other relevant materials for generational examples that will enhance learning. And if
appropriate, we look at similar organizations as a way of benchmarking.

An internal coaching training programme for your organization’s retention and talent management systems.

In recent years, Asia has experienced slower economic growth, skyrocketing costs, skills shortages, and increasing
competition. Thus, labour productivity and efficiency of many Asian corporations and firms are threatened. Currently,
there is an estimate of 660 million Gen Y-ers in Asia. Generation Y has been perceived as the workforce of the future
and will be the next generation of leaders. Even though companies in Asia are able to attract Generation Y-ers,
retention has always been an inevitable problem as most Gen Y-ers thrive on change and would not stay on a job for
long once the excitement dissipates.

Importance of understanding Generation Y:
Generation Y has been entering the workforce since a decade ago and they are here to stay. The strategies used in
managing employees of older generations are not as effective for Generation Y (The GMP Group and Temasek
Polytechnic, 2009).

Strategies to Manage High Young Talent

Ways to motivate Generation Y (as cited from Carolyn A. Martin and Bruce Tulgan, 2001):

• Providing challenging work that really matters
• Balance clearly delegated assignments with freedom and flexibility.
• Offer increasing responsibility as a reward for accomplishments.
• Spend time getting to know staff members and their capabilities.
• Provide ongoing training and learning opportunities.
• Establish mentoring relationships.
• Create a comfortable, low stress environment.
• Allow some flexibility in scheduling.
• Focus on work, but be personable and have a sense of humor.
• Balance the roles of “boss” and “team player”.
• Treat Generation Y as colleagues, not as interns or “teenagers”
• Be respectful, call forth respect in return.
• Consistently provide constructive feedback.
• Reward Generation Y when they have accomplished a good job.

Ways to better manage Generation Y (Neubronner as cited in Lee, 2009):

• Discuss issues in a positive manner. Focus on the solution, not the problem.
  "Gen Ys are not the enemy. Let their creativity help you solve the challenges."
• Reverse mentoring. Let Gen Y employees share their dreams and beliefs with the baby boomers and veterans at
  work and show them what Gen Y can do so Gen X managers don't have to be caught in between.
• Understand that "not all change is bad". Instead of resisting change which will cause undue stress, managers need
  to realise that traditional HR rewards and management styles need to be reassessed for each generation.

Programs are individually tailored through a detailed process that includes a pre-program questionnaire, interviews with
selected leaders/employees, and research into each client’s industry and issues. We review websites, ad campaigns,
recruiting brochures, and Hr systems for generational examples that will enhance learning. And if appropriate, we look
at similar organizations as a way of benchmarking.

Research has shown that we would have had 4 to 8 different jobs in our lifetime – let us help you to reinvent and renew yourself for the new challenges in your career

"Not a just a Job, A Calling" is to launch, enhance or change your careers. If you are a first time job seeker, career coaching may help clarify your goals, interests and values and aid in the job search process.

Mid-career professionals might decide they need clarity and validation of the job goals, career direction and may even decide to switch careers.

Whatever the reason, Career Coaches can help you approach the process of self-assessment and job search in a more strategic and systematic manner.

Some individuals might need help from coaches in just one or two areas, such as Interviewing; others might need help across all areas such as resume writing, interviewing, networking, negotiating and professional image overview.

Not sure if you need a career coach? Have you ever had any of these thoughts:

• I would be great in that job if only someone would hire me.
• I feel like I’m in a rut and I can’t see myself doing this job for the rest of my life.
• I am uncomfortable with the concept of networking.
• I don’t know what to say when asked “Tell me about yourself”.
• I don’t have the right education or qualifications.
• I have sent out dozens of resumes, but there are no interviews.
• I have attended dozens of interviews, but have no job offers.
• I am uncomfortable talking about myself and my achievements because I feel like I might be bragging.
• I worry that my retrenchment has a stigma and no one will employ me.
• I worry that my job is in jeopardy.


Why should I hire a coach?
The primary reason to hire a coach is to gain clarity regarding your career. Some might benefit from validating their career choices, others would need more help finding the hidden job market. Career Coaching would help individuals market themselves more effectively.

What can I expect from working with a coach?
A good coach will work with you to set objectives upfront. From these, you should work together to establish an action plan that makes sense. Remember, there are no cookie-cutter solutions or plans. Everyone is different. Beware of any coach who doesn’t take the time to tailor an approach consistent with your background and objectives.

Can I interview the career coach before deciding?
Yes, we encourage that you meet the career coach and most importantly, feel comfortable with the person. Also ask some key questions:
• How long have they been coaching?
• What is the income and demographic of their clients?
• Do they specialize in any industries or jobs?
• Are there any clients they haven’t been able to help?
• Can they provide any references?

When is the best time to hire a career coach?
It depends, every person in unique and everyone has different needs. Some people hire a career coach when they are retrenched and don’t know how to get back into the job market. Others struggle with the job search process and hire a career coach when they face several fruitless attempts job seeking. Some individuals are aware they need professional help undertaking a mid-career switch. The longer you wait, the more stressful and desperate the situation becomes. In general, it’s best to start early in the process, avoiding pitfalls and mistakes.
We use a range of profiling tools and advise you on what is best for you and your next steps.
We will recommend what is best for you after understanding your goals and aspirations

Women Leadership Coaching

Women leaders need to be supported and coached to their roles in leadership. To ensure effective, sustain-able
leadership development, it is important that organization recognize and address the contributions of their women
employees. This can only occur if female employees realize their individual potential. To ensure strong female
leadership development, organizations should ensure three components –increasing women’s portfolios of human,
social, and political capital; recognizing women as a strategic business advantage; and strengthening women’s
connections to their organizations. Of greatest significance, is the importance for women to feel connected to the
goals and objectives of the larger organization and to envision a holistic picture of themselves as integral organizational
partners. Also of equal significance, women must take control of their own careers and identify individual learning
agendas for their own leadership development.

A successful strategy for women leadership is the usage of human and developmental relationships. Tools that
facilitate alignment and transformative change are the ability of women to be innovative, the ability of organizations to
be transparent, the ability of women and organizations to be purposeful and collaborative, and the ability of society to
be adaptive.

and society to support women's career success: An exploratory case study of transformational change. Capella Univeristy.

Women are critical resources in co-leading the economic development processes of the 21st century.
Education, is the key for women leadership and empowerment.
