Leading as a Millennial During Uncertain Times with Jenna Shellman

Authentic Living with Roxanne Derhodge and Jenna Shellman

Being an effective leader at any time is no easy task.  The uncertainty of job loss, leading virtually and the economic realities of the global pandemic are making it so much more difficult.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Leadership Expert, Jenna Shellman to discuss her experience as a millennial, leading others and dealing with the fallout of the pandemic.

Jenna is passionate about millennials and believes that her generation received the short end of the stick when it comes to managing student loan debt, building financial stability, and having the confidence to travel down the road less travelled. The challenges that millennials face have been systematically brought on by the financial crisis in 2008, inflated college tuitions, and the constant need to feel validation. Boomer parents raised them hoping that there would be more relative economic and financial stability so their generation could prosper more than they did. However, this is not necessarily the case for many millennials.
