Richmond, Virginia-based Professional Development Company Announces Workshop On Managing This Enigmatic Generation

Past News Releases


By 2020, Millennials are expected to make up half of the nation’s workforce, and companies are learning that the values and expectations of the Millennial generation are different than those of previous generations. Can this group of 20-somethings be managed?

Frontier Academy, the professional development arm of The Frontier Project, is known in the business world for its unique workshops. The company facilitates a wide variety of courses designed to relieve business leader “pain points,” but perhaps none are as painful as the friction caused by the millions of Millennials who now work alongside older colleagues from Generation X and Baby Boomers.

“Millennials place more emphasis on work/life balance and crave more feedback from their supervisors,” said Ryann Wayne, CEO of Frontier Academy and Co-Founder of The Frontier Project. “We developed the Managing Millennials curriculum to help our clients navigate this new generation and show them how to manage this young generation’s expectations and re-focus its creativity.”

Frontier Academy developed the “Managing Millennials” workshop for organizations and managers who want to stay competitive, keep talented employees and help other generations of workers (Gen X and Boomers) who are looking to work productively with their Millennials counterparts.

Frontier Academy began offering courses in 2007, helping employees and executives at a wide variety of organizations to develop skills such as The Art of Delivering Presentations, Negotiation, Influencing Stakeholders, and Leading Effective Meetings. Frontier Academy currently offers 27 courses, and has plans to significantly expand that number in the next few years.

“Frontier Academy’s programs are so effective because our participants get to work through a real-life business issue they are facing,” said Wayne. “Not only are they gaining the benefit of learning new tools, they are actually able to apply them and the lessons stay with them when they return to their day-to-day roles.”

Frontier Academy has trained thousands of people, from a wide variety of recognized companies, including Global 1000 clients Allianz Global Assistance and Interbake Foods, Inc. in addition to U.S. manufacturers, such as Hamilton Beach and nonprofit organizations, such as U.S. Green Building Council.

The next Managing Millennials workshop in Richmond, Virginia begins on Tuesday November 17th, 2015. The cost of the one-day workshop is $475.00 and interested parties can learn more at
