Karen loves change and believes that positive changes are attainable and vital to your success. She is a nationally known keynote speaker and expert on change, generational opportunities, and workforce trends. Today Karen gives us Generational Insights.
Diverse perspectives have changed the dynamics in the workplace. Leading in a multigenerational workforce has always had its challenges, and now more than ever, working from home magnifies the generational differences. Leading your multigenerational team requires new skills and the ability to develop a growth mindset.
Karen helps leaders cut through the generational biases and get back to reality by leveraging their team's strengths, enriching the work environment, and driving better results. She brings a realistic perspective on workplace trends, employee engagement while offering actionable content- and she's a lot of fun!
She began speaking on the generations in 2007, and she continually studies current generational trends. Today her interest in the generations has become her passion and mission. Her programs include case studies, current research, and up to date new information and discoveries about Millennials with a large focus on Gen Z.
For the past 15 years, Karen has shared her insights with top organizations such as VMware, Procter & Gamble, US Department of Justice, JPMorgan Chase, Symantec, McGraw-Hill, National Homebuilders, Shell Oil, Mercedes Benz, The World Bank, American National Insurance, Humana, United Way, American Heart Association and MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Before her speaking and early in her career, Karen owned and operated several retail fashion stores in Houston, Texas. Often, she hired many young employees with no work experience and zero in the retail industry. Karen had the keen ability to identify inexperienced workers who had the potential to become great employees- and they did, many staying on for years.! Little did she know that these early years were the foundation for her passion, understanding, and managing all generations.
