Millennials don't leave companies, they leave their managers, says Antonio Neves, a millennial workplace speaker, author, and award-winning journalist.
Young professionals want to be nurtured by leaders who are clearly invested and engaged in organizational and personal success, and won't settle for managers who muddle through their careers.
“Millennials aren't something to be fixed. The same way Gen Xers, who were called slackers, weren't something to be fixed. The same way baby boomers, who were innovative when they came to the workplace, weren't something to be fixed. Millennials are something to be harnessed and appreciated,” Neves tells the CUNA News Podcast.
Neves will lead a breakout session at CUNA's America's Credit Union Conference.
“How can we, as leaders, as managers, show up a little bit differently?” Neves asks.
For over 10 years, Antonio worked as a business correspondent, host, and producer with top networks, including NBC, PBS, Advertising Age, BET Networks, and Nickelodeon.
He is the author of the books 50 Ways to Excel in Your First Job and 50 Things Every College Student Should Know. His advice, opinions and writing regularly appears in Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, TheMuse.com and more.
Antonio founded the leadership consultancy THINQACTION and co-founded the international business accelerator The Ignition Lab, working with senior executives and high-potential talent at top organizations nationwide.
