Hi. I'm Rita Murray.
As a speaker, author,
consultant, and millennial advocate,
I focus on executive and organizational development
through emotional intelligence across the generations.
If you're a millennial,
born between 1981 and 1990 and you're frustrated by being identified with
negative stereotypes and labels that more accurately define some of
those standout behaviors of younger millennials born between 1991-2000,
take heart, you're not alone.
EQ and millennial disruption will provide you with
some insights and research on generational diversity.
It'll give you a frame of reference as we look at the needs in our workforces at
what this very large generation of millennials worldwide brings to the table.
What if we could prove that there's
a distinct difference between two decades of millennials?
It's not about bad or entitled to attitudes.
Sociology professor Tony Campolo states,
"I'm convinced we don't live in a generation of bad kids,
we live in a generation of young people who know too much too soon."
So, what if it's simply a case of lower emotional intelligence?
That shifts the conversation.
Just the mention of millennials and multiple types of responses occur, ranging from, oh,
they're so smart and so tech-savvy,
to feelings of disgust,
anger, or frustration to, whatever.
The millennials have been exposed to a lot more than
Generation X and Baby Boomers at the same age.
Millennials consume information on everything before they even graduate middle school;
data and information coming at them at high speed and at a much earlier age.
On the other hand, many believe that their emotional maturity is lacking,
and this could be the reason- it's emotional intelligence.
