Event Title

Mini 11: How the Next Generation Speaks In the Workplace: Millennial Communication Styles *

Presenter Information

Dr. Edward De La Torre, Ed.D Budget Manager Finance and Adjunct Lecturer Brandman University

Description

Millennials will soon become the largest generation populating the workforce. It has been noted that Millennials have distinct personality characteristics, abilities, and skills that separate them from the older generations. However, there has been little exploration into the different ways Millennials communicate, specifically their verbal communication styles, and if this influences generational conflict witnessed in the workplace. This session will relay findings on Millennial communication styles and how it relates to the perceptions they have towards their own supervisors. Also, there will be a discussion on what the findings should impart to Millennial employees and to supervisors managing a Millennial workforce, as well as possible ideas for studies on related topics for doctoral dissertations.
