Who is on Your Personal Board of Directors?
by Chip Romp, Senior Director, Training and Instructor Quality at National Restaurant Association                        
Your company has a team of leaders whose focus is to support achieving the company’s mission and goals. That group provides insight to the executive team in the pursuit of driving sales, growing profits, and strategizing for the next five, 10, and 20 years. Your company has a Board of Directors, but do you? Who is your trusted circle that you reach out to and talk to when it comes to your career, goals, and ambitions?

If you don’t have a personal Board of Directors … it is never too late to start!

Who is your board?  Many people may think I am writing about industry mentors. Sure, you may have one or two from your industry, but your board should be those from a variety of walks that will give you straight feedback. Those that have common interests and values with you. Those that you might not talk with often, but know that when you do, they are sincere, with your best interest at hand. When you ask someone to be on your Board of Directors, it might catch them off guard, but take the time to make sure they understand how important this is to you in helping you continue to develop and grow.  Read More.  


The Great Generational Shift: The Post-Boomer Workforce of 2020
by Bruce Tulgan, Founder and CEO of RainmakerThinking, Inc. and Keynote Speaker at CHART conference in Seattle                 

There is a “Great Generational Shift” underway in the workforce today. This is the post-Baby Boomer shift that demographers and workforce planners have been anticipating for decades. It is not only a generational shift in the numbers in the workforce, but an epic turning point. This is the final stage of a historic period of profound change globally and a corresponding transformation in the very fundamentals of the employer-employee relationship. The generational shift presents a whole new set of challenges for employers, employees, and for managers at all levels. 

While there are always different people of different generations working side by side in the workplace, today there are as many as six different generations, depending on which demographic definitions one uses. The workforce is aging on one end of the spectrum and getting younger on the other. In the middle there is a gap, with the prime age workforce shrinking as an overall percentage of the workforce.

Generations in the workplace in 2016.  The oldest, most experienced people in the workplace, “pre-Boomers,” those born before the post-WWII “Baby Boom” began in 1946, are still greater than 1% of the workforce.  The Baby Boomers (born 1946-64) are 30%, Generation Xers (born 1965-77) are 27%, and The Millennial Generation is 42%.
