Podcast Author Interview with Sarah Sladek

November 19, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm CST


Join host, Regina Barr, and author, Sarah Sladek, for a 30 minute informational interview as they discuss the book, Talent Generation: How Visionary Organizations Are Redefining Work and Achieving Greater Success, on Tuesday, November 19th at 12 noon CST.  


The post-industrial era gave way to several new economies—Knowledge, Sharing, and Gig to name a few. Enter now the Talent Economy, characterized by unprecedented innovation, connectivity, disruption, and opportunity and spawned considerably by declining employee job satisfaction, costly employee turnover, shrinking profitability, and the boomer retirement wave.

The need to engage younger generations of talent is widespread and urgent. Leadership is aging and the skills gap continues to grow. Traditional workforce practices are being challenged. Organizations that thrive in the Talent Economy will be people-centric and future-focused.

Drawing from documented workforce and talent-development research, as well as her own ongoing study of generational impacts, author Sarah L. Sladek cites numerous examples of organizations that have successfully engaged employees in this era of disruption—what they did, why it worked, and how it’s made a difference to the organizations’ outlook and bottom line.

Sarah Sladek is a best-selling author, speaker, and CEO. Since 2002, her life’s work has been dedicated to helping organizations engage future generations of members and talent. As the founder and CEO of XYZ University, Sarah has grown a future-focused company comprised of generational researchers, presenters, and strategists. XYZ U has helped hundreds of organizations grow membership and reduce turnover among younger generations.

As a leading researcher of generational insights, Sarah has authored more books and research papers on the generational topic than any other consultant. Her five books include two best-sellers for Association Management Press: The End of Membership As We Know It (2011), and Knowing Y (2014). Her fifth book, Talent Generation (2017), identifies the core strategies essential to engaging today’s talent.
