Meagan Johnson

  • Generational Expert

Meagan Johnson, born 1970, Gen X’er

A Generational Expert, Speaker and Author. She’s a bright, funny delightfully obnoxious Generational Humorist!

What exactly is a Generational Expert?

It’s somebody who understands the differences between Baby Boomers (born 1945-1964), Generation Xers (born 1965-1980) and Gen Yers also called Millennials (born 1981-2000) and how they can live, and most importantly, work together successfully without name-calling or bloodshed.

Think you’ve already heard everything about the multiple generations? Think again!

Our generations and the gaps that separate them are in constant flux, what worked last year probably won’t work today. Anybody still using their VCR? What seemed like a perfect solution yesterday is the source of tomorrow’s problem. You really need to get all those home movies put on disc! … Wait! I mean Digital Storage. Oh No! I mean The Cloud!

The potential for collision, conflict and confusion between the generations has never been greater and the chasm is growing wider every day we ignore the problem.

Unwilling to accept standard, by-the-book generalizations, Meagan tackles the generational challenges, myths and misunderstandings head on. Meagan demonstrates to audiences, through her own experience, in depth research and program customization, that all generations have differences and strengths that go beyond mere age and appearance.

Stop complaining about the generational differences and learn from Meagan Johnson what you can do right now to make the most of all the generations.

The workplace is NOT what it used to be.

What happened to company loyalty, work ethic, manners and attitudes? People are staying past their prime; the corporate ladder has crumbled; college grads have job titles that sound like something out of a science fiction movie and have nothing to do with their actual job and nobody talks on the phone anymore.

The global marketplace has become a myriad of different generations. What people want from an employer; their expectations of corporate benefits, organizational culture and motivation to do what’s best for business differs from generation to generation. Your challenge is to figure out how to communicate successfully with the individual generations to achieve financial success, personal growth and enriched company morale.

What Makes Meagan a Generational Expert?

During the 1990s, while working for companies like Quaker Oats, Kraft Foods and Xerox, Meagan often heard negative comments about Gen Xers. Things like “they’re all slackers,” “gold collar workers,” and “it’s the Beavis and Butthead generation” were not uncommon.

Being a Gen Xer herself, Meagan knew those terms were unfair, untrue and hurtful so she began researching small and large businesses to debunk generational myths and discover the most effective ways to solve multi-generational clashes. That research gave birth to thousands of generational presentations and to her best-selling book” Generations Inc., From Boomers To Linksters Managing the Friction Between Generations at Work”.

“She is the de-facto expert when it comes to navigating the maze of generational quandaries’ every organization faces."

****Quoted by the Chicago Tribune, CNNMoney.com and US News & World Report, she has been heard on ABC Talk Live, NPR and profiled on Conde’ Nast’s Portfolio.com. Meagan has become the ‘Go To’ expert for all things generational.

Meagan gives audiences a chance to not only laugh at their own generation (and the other ones) but flourish in the presence of others.

Zap the Gap

Each generation has very unique wants, needs, and desires. With each generation, there is an opportunity to learn new perspectives and get fresh ideas, as well as an opportunity to grow frustrated, upset, and angry or have a disaster on your hands. You must learn to tap into each generation's motivational requirements in order to realize their greatest potential.

In this fascinating keynote speech by generational expert Meagan Johnson, she will share with audience members how to:

  • Enhance your credibility to those of different generations.
  • Identify and understand the differences between generations, and recognize that those differences are more than body piercings and hair dye.
  • Vary your approach to multi-generational employees and clients.
  • Learn how a person's "generational signposts" affect what he or she says, does, and buys.
  • Use terminology that will bridge the gap between you and people of different generations.
  • Learn some "what not to dos," including how to offend people of every generation so they'll never want to deal with you again!

RECreation, Inc.

Masterful. Perfect. The Best in 20 Years. Fun. When you said ‘never before’ you meant it and delivered. Unbelievably Good. You made me money. I anticipated something really good, but nothing this incredible.

Utah Health Care Association

Meagan was our closing keynote speaker for our Fall Convention and I will tell you that she received some of the highest evaluations that any speaker has ever received from our members- and they can be a tough crowd! I too asked her to present on embracing a multigenerational workforce, as that is one of our greatest challenges throughout Utah’s long-term care profession, and she totally nailed the topic. I purposefully put Meagan as our closing keynote speaker as I like to end our large, statewide meetings on a high note and Meagan certainly delivered! She was well prepared, engaged with my attendees and presented with a dynamic energy that kept everyone interested.

Virginia Automotive Association

Meagan was universally loved! Several Board members thought she was our finest speaker ever. Just before I introduced Meagan, a person I was having breakfast with asked me to describe Meagan’s presentation after seeing it a few times. I replied that every time I see her, my relationship with my children gets a little better.
