New York, NY, September 18, 2013, 11:50 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- LeaderBoom Inc. is a results-oriented Toronto based firm that prepares emerging leaders to be successful in roles by expanding their skills to work effectively across geographies and by enhancing their ability to execute on complex corporate objectives. The firm launches its workshops to the NYC market October 5 & 6.
From their research, which includes direct contact with 50 individuals in global organizations spanning 4 continents, and collaborating with a Global Advisory Team, LeaderBoom has learned that the dominating trends in the Leadership Training and Development Industry for 2013 are being influenced by two primary factors:
- The globalization and interconnectivity of businesses through internet technology
- The increasing volatility of employment due to the growing pool of multicultural and multigenerational qualified candidates that have emerged as a result of increased globalization and a rise in populations.
According to author, researcher and speaker, Dan Schawbel, the Millennial Generation will make up more than 75 percent of the workforce by 2025. This “Millennial Generation” is the generation born between 1982 and 1993, some 81 million individuals who are reshaping the world of business. This generation needs to be led in a different way that supports how they use technology, their cultural patterns and their way of communicating. LeaderBoom has designed their programs based on the global and demographic shifts taking place in the workplace and have created specific, targeted training for emerging leader development that include, mentoring, coaching and transference of knowledge on effective leadership strategies.
