Session

  • How could they make the most out of the generational shift?
  • What kind of coaching is needed within the new generation?
  • Who is responsible for the skills of new work force: applicants, recruiters, education system, society or all? What’s their role?

These are the questions we will together seek the answers to in this which will include practical examples of joining business, students, and unemployed of the new generation, education, and coaching. The objective is to find immersive ways of utilising the social change the new generation will bring to work force. We wish to find applicable ways of enhancing the work – youth – coaching trio in different environments. This session will open our thinking to new options of coaching as part of practical skill building!
