Mike Kachilla to Present on Generational Differences at LINC

September 15, 2015

ALLIANCE, Ohio – Mount Union faculty member Mike Kachilla will be the first speaker in the University of Mount Union’s fall LINC luncheon series.

Kachilla, associate professor of management, internship coordinator, professional in residence and director of Entrepreneurial Studies, will present, “Did Everyone Get Trophies?: Understanding the Generational Differences” at noon on Tuesday, September 22 in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

During his talk, Kachilla will discuss how different generations have different heroes and are influenced by the Great Depression, the Vietnam War and the personal computer. One generation works to live while another generation lives to work. One generation is characterized as “technology natives” and another is characterized as “technology immigrants.” All the generations want to work and each approaches it differently because they grew up with different influences, events and environments.

Kachilla earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from The Ohio State University, graduated from the Command and Staff College and School of Advanced Warfighting from the Marine Corps University and earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Ohio University. He has been conducting general workforce research and giving presentations since 2002, working with a number of companies throughout Ohio and West Virginia.

The cost to attend an individual LINC is $10; there is also a seasonal package for $50. A season pass guarantees a saved spot at each event. Payment is accepted prior to the event by check via mail; tickets can also be purchased at the door, but advanced reservations are required.
