Meagan Johnson is a terrific professional speaker on the topic of bridging the generational gap and communicating with multi-generations. She spent several years working in sales for major corporations across the United States. At every company Meagan became discouraged to hear 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 Baby Boomer management had to the great potential of Gen X. "There was this perception of only one way to get ahead and be successful at work." The career path the managers expected us to take was very traditional. They were unwilling to look at a different way of career management and training that was relevant to younger employees.
"Meagan began to research everything from small to large corporations in order to find successful ways to work with the younger generation. From that research, the ZAP THE GAP program - Solving the Multi-Generational Puzzle a great book and program was born.
Since 1997 Meagan Johnson has entertained and educated thousands of audience members from all over the globe. She has written a variety of articles about the multiple generations and has been interviewed for many publications and audio programs. She wrote the Generational chapter in the book Success is A Team Effort.
In 2000, she was the only female speaker on the main platform at the Harley Davidson University conference in New Orleans Louisiana. After her ZAP THE GAP presentation, a Harley Dealer told her "You have changed the way I treat and train my younger employees."
Meagan has continued her research into the complexities of the younger workforce."Every generation gets a negative label when it enter the workforce. For example Baby Boomers were called trouble-making hippies when they first went to work and Gen Xers were called lazy. "Once we take time to understand the motivations and mind-set of younger people, working with them, selling to them and managing them becomes a more successful effort".
Meagan is an active member of NSA, National Speakers Association. In 2003, she received her CSP, Certified Speaking Professional designation. Currently, only ten percent of professional speakers hold this designation. As a Gen Xer Meagan was extremely proud to be one of the youngest recipients of the CSP designation.
Meagan lives in Arizona with four dogs that have a total of 15 legs. You do the math!!
