Biography

Meagan Johnson graduated from Arizona State University Business School with a BS in Marketing. She spent several years working in sales for companies like Quaker Oats, Kraft Foods and Xerox. At every company Meagan became discouraged to hear all the negative comments about Generation X. (Generation X is the 50 million people born between 1965 and 1980.)

Being a Gen Xer herself, she felt these comments were unfounded. She was further frustrated by the blinders her own managers seemed to have. "There was this perception of only one way to get ahead and be successful at work. The career path my managers expected me to take was very traditional. They seemed to be unable to look at a different way of training and career management that was relevant to younger employees."

Meagan has continued her research into the complexities of the younger workforce.

Imagine...

· You are fifty-year-old veteran and you just found out your new boss is only twenty-four!
· The hot-shot graduate you hired, (and overpaid) just quit for no apparent reason!
· A promising candidate you really want to hire turns her nose up at the best benefits package you've ever offered!
· Your HR Department tells you that turnover among your youngest workers is mysteriously skyrocketing - costing you a fortune in training!
· That seasoned long-time employee you just promoted is miserable and wants to quit.
· Your best salesperson has won every sales award for the last five years, and now she wants to work part time. 

How do you zap the invisible gap and manage your multi-generational workforce? Never before have there been four different generations in the workforce...at the same time.

In 1998 Meagan Johnson was already an experienced professional speaker and trainer, delivering seminars across North America. A Gen-Xer herself, Meagan began to hear a consistent complaints among her clients about the wide GAP between the Baby-Boomer/Traditional Generation bosses, and the Generation-X and New Millennium Generation employees coming into the workforce.

Meagan began researching best practices of America's top corporations; the solution was not a new form of business structure but good old-fashioned communication skills, conflict resolution-negotiation methods, and stress-management techniques which Meagan had been perfecting for years! Meagan Johnson delivers these skills to audiences using her experience in adult learning, personal discovery, and most all, hilarious stories that keep the audience laughing and anchor the learning to excitement and fun.
