Care about Generation Z! They’re changing everything

Sounds like you’ve heard the very same thing before. About Generation Y. Right. But there were no smartphones when Gen Y grew up. Gen Z is the first generation that doesn’t compare the analogue past with the way they act, communicate and organize themselves now. When we dig deeper into the lives of Generation Z, you’ll be surprised how smartphones lead to stronger family bonds, more fear of the future and an ever increasing pressure to perform well. It is harder to attract Gen Z’s attention and more challenging to lead this generation with little career ambitions and used to instant feedback. All this is true before and after the Covid-19 pandemic. But Covid-19 and the ensuing crises of health, wealth and economy have a dramatic impact on families and friendship, schooling and work, priorities and perspectives.

How do you excite GenZ for your goals, products or services?How do you manage and lead GenZ in multi-generational teams?How do you engage GenZ to cocreate the future?Change is in the air. Let Simon show you how to succeed with GenZ.
