Kristin Scroggin, the Managing Partner and Lead Trainer at genWHY Communication Strategies, realized she had a big problem three years into her teaching career at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Her plan of making all her Millennial students "love her" (so they would work harder in her classes) was backfiring. Instead of working harder, they thought she was more likely to "hook them up" with a good grade. It was time to find a new pedagogical (teaching) style that would work for a new generation of students. That's when she began actively studying the Millennial Generation. 

For the next eleven years, Kristin surveyed and interviewed students who came through her Communication classes. Students ranged from children of NASA rocket scientist to military "brats" who spent years living across the United States.  Data was collected on everything from future family plans, to ideal work hours, and measured across the decade. This information was collated and put into a humorous and informative presentation that has been given over 200 times since June of 2013 at conferences and companies across the country.

TRaining & Development Specialist

Born and raised in Jamaica, Chris transferred his passion for speaking to the states at 17 years old when he was accepted into the Junior Statesman of America Program at Yale University. He walked away with the best speaker award during his attendance and vowed one day he would "speak for a living."  He has spent the past seven years proudly serving in the Alabama National Guard, including two deployments (Afghanistan and Kuwait). Through every job he has held in the military, from military police to engineer to a mechanic, there is one job he excels at...motivating others. Chris has led and learned from every generation during his time as a Sergeant and has a unique view of generational differences as someone who was raised outside of the United States but works in the United States.  Chris's #1 passion is his motorcycle, though, don't let him tell you any differently!

"Generation 'Them' Navigating the Multi-Generational Workplace, was a great way to end the day. It was a very informative and humorous look at the challenges we face in the workplace AND our personal lives with regard to generational communication gaps."

/Lake Washington Human Resources Association/

 

"Kristin is dynamic and tells it like it is. Her insight is spot on -- she has a great handle on explaining how different generations interact. She'll also have you rolling with laughter. She is entertaining and intelligent. One of the best speakers I've ever seen, with practical advice on how to help different people of different ages in your company work together more successfully."

/WHNT 19 News/

 

"Kristin Scroggin’s subject matter about generational differences in the workplace was especially timely for our Association’s membership of county officials. She was able to capture the attention of the entire room—from the department head with 30 years of experience, to the entry-level employee right out of college. Her presentation was informative and thought-provoking, and her humorous, real-life examples kept the audience fully engaged with the subject matter. Kristin was also easy to work with, and very accessible during the booking process. I looking forward to working with her again.”."
