The global society is experiencing and recognizing that generation Y and especially Z are known for their independence. Leadership positions are not as important to them as they were for previous generations; the impulse for self-realization is no longer only expected through work, but above all in leisure and social communities; and these generations are seeing less separation between the virtual and the real world, but an uninterrupted exchange with followers of the same media. So their perspectives on leadership and how we as businesses need to engage with them on leadership topics might need a rethink as well.
But of course, there are still plenty of Gen Y & Zs who do have ambitions to become leaders of organisations in the future and METRO AG is running a very successful Leadership-trainee programme called “METRO Potentials Programme” to support their development. Inclusive leadership was identified as an important topic and one METRO AG felt it wanted to find a fresh approach to training for this global group of trainees.
In this webinar, Laura Halfas, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility - Diversity and Inclusion at METRO AG shares the approach METRO AG took in developing a workshop for the younger generations, going away from a traditional training course and how they have transported the topic closer to their METRO Potentials globally in an unconventional way. So join us to lean more.
This Webinar is hosted by the LEAD Network and is part of our Best Practice Campaign called "Inclusion Drives Results".
