    Classroom to Boardroom - Are American Millennials Lacking in Skills?
by Lindsey Pollak and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
In a test designed by Princeton’s Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Millennials scored far below people of other nations in the areas of literacy, math, and technology. The study caused many to question if Millennials in the U.S. have the skills necessary to thrive in the workplace. Lindsey Pollak joins LJNRadio to discuss these findings, and to shed some light on what may have caused the results that some consider t...
 
  Wear This, Not That: A Millennial’s Guide to Business Casual
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Ripped jeans. Tank tops. Flip flops. Visible bra straps. Wrinkled shirts. Shorts. Micro-mini skirts. Bare midriffs. Five o’clock shadows. Many managers complain that millennials think the same clothes you’d wear to the beach or a nightclub are also appropriate work attire. This is, of course, not a new workplace issue. Complaining about younger generations dressing inappropriately has been taking place forever. But peop...
 
  Millennial Question: Why Does Gen X Love Email?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
“You’ve got mail!” Ah, the days when the ding of a new message was exciting rather than annoying. With all the apps and productivity tools designed to help us manage our email and all the effort many devote to achieving “Inbox Zero,” it’s hard for millennials — and many others — to believe that Gen Xers used to adore email. And our dirty little secret is that many of us still do. Of course, not every Gen Xer feels this wa...
 
  Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders: My Talk at NACE 2015
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Last week I had the amazing experience of serving as a keynote speaker at the annual National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) conference in Anaheim, Calif. The enthusiasm of the crowd was infectious, and I had the opportunity to connect with so many career services professionals and campus recruiters who are on the front lines of creating tomorrow’s leaders. (NACE, for those who are unfamiliar, is the go-to associ...
 
  Back to the ‘Kids’ Table’: Should Millennials Have Their Own Space?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Remember being stuck at the kids’ table at family gatherings? In some ways, it was fun to be able to kick back with the cousins and avoid probing questions from relatives you barely knew about whether you had a boyfriend or what “hooking up” meant. (Or maybe that was just my family…) But, in a way, you also felt as though you were being segregated just for being a kid. Like you didn’t have anything to add to the grownup co...
 
  3 Ways to Shake Up Your Mentoring Program for Better Results
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
Remember that old song we learned as kids, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold?" It's a good reminder for the workplace. As individuals, we benefit from having a professional network comprised of both longtime connections and new workplace relationships. If you primarily hang out with the "old guard" in your organization or industry, you risk missing out on fresh perspectives. If you...
 
  My Biggest Work Fail: A Lesson for Millennials and Their Managers
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
My first job out of college was in the business development group of WorkingWoman.com at the height of dot-com mania. Early on, I was tasked with negotiating a contract with a new client, something I’d never done before. But I was on it – referring to my notes and busily cutting and pasting verbiage. When I was finished, the contract reflected everything we had discussed – I had nailed it! But as I like to say, you don’t k...
 
  3 Small Steps to Better Integrate Millennials Into Your Workplace
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2015
One of my major business goals for this year is to continually improve my keynote speeches. So far, this has involved signing up with a respected speaking coach, taking several high-level online classes and watching a ton of other speakers work their craft. It has also meant improving the specific takeaways my audiences receive. In every presentation, my hope is that every participant walks away with both high-level inspira...
 
  Employee Perks that Work: Free Food is Nice, but a Great Career is Better
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2015
Lately, many of my clients and audiences have been asking: What employee perks actually work to retain millennials? Or, phrased another way: Do millennials really care about unlimited snacks and daily chair massages? This question has been discussed in the news lately as well. And I believe it’s an important topic: What actually motivates young professionals in today’s constantly changing workplace? Is it different th...
 
  How to Overcome Impostor Syndrome
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2015
Do you ever feel like a fake? If you’re a leader today and you’ve felt some occasional insecurity in your role, you’re far from alone. This phenomenon is often called impostor syndrome, and it’s a concern that arises in many training sessions I deliver to leaders, and new leaders in particular. The good news is the syndrome is quite curable. Here are five strategies to help you out: Know that it’s normal. Especially as a...
 
  Are You Setting New Managers Up for Success?
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2015
Last winter I started doing yoga. As someone who is not naturally coordinated, calm or interested in chanting, I had no idea what I was doing at the beginning. So I took some lessons. Then I worked my way up to classes. And now, a year later, I can occasionally hold a crow pose for three or four seconds and, according to my favorite teacher, my chaturangas are starting to “open up.” I’m getting better and I love it. Here’s...
