Help is available for Boomers and GenXers confused about how to work with millennials. Thought leader Cara Silletto will explain how to bridge the generational gap during presentations in Broken Bow and North Platte next week. 

Silletto is the president of Crescendo Strategies, a firm committed to reducing unnecessary employee turnover and making leaders more effective in their roles. 

She has a Master of Business Administration degree and more than 14 years of experience learning the unwritten expectations of older managers and business owners. Silletto is also the co-author of "What's Next in HR." 

The best part? She is a millennial herself – born in 1981. Millennials, those younger than 36, are the largest generational group in the workforce. They will outnumber Boomers and GenXers by 2020. 

Silletto's talks, "They Drive Me Crazy! Managing and Retaining Millennials," help audiences understand how business, along with the expectation of employees, has changed. An increasing number of job opportunities and LinkedIn poachers who try to steal talent away are just a couple of challenges employers are up against. 

Silletto will discuss the power shift from employers to employees that has occurred since the recession and how successful companies are putting forth intentional effort and resources to create an organizational culture where people want to work.

Silletto will speak on Feb. 22 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. in the Broken Bow City Auditorium and from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the McDonald-Belton Theater on the North Platte Community College South Campus.
