Habitudes for New Professionals

Bridge the Gap Between Potential & Performance in Millennial Employees


Habitudes for New Professionals is a resource developed by Dr. Tim Elmore, a next generation thought leader, while he was training interns and new graduates.

Habitudes for Businesses is a resource designed to help young professionals:

  • Overcome a sense of entitlement towards tasks that seem “beneath them”
  • Persevere in a career when it may move slower than they wish
  • Trust their supervisor even when they don’t completely agree with him or her
  • Take initiative and set the pace for other teammates
  • Stay creative even when a supervisor doesn’t embrace all of their ideas
  • … and many more leadership habits and attitudes

How It Works

Habitudes is an image-based training system that teaches timeless leadership truths by sparking conversations between Millennials and their leaders. In this way, your young teammates can feel that their opinion is being validated, even while they are learning to see another point of view on their personal conduct. Habitudes for New Professionals can be utilized in your workplace during team meetings, onboarding, or leadership development programs.


Implementing the Habitudes program has helped us reinforce the important of leadership and character with our team members. The images helped us reinforce our mission, vision and values, and teach team members practical ways to personally own them in all of their actions.

As we all know, our workforce makeup continues to evolve each year. With the Millennials becoming the largest portion of our population, and the fact that multiple generations make up today’s employees, our leadership styles have to be more adaptable than ever. Dr. Elmore’s presentation helps you recognize the key differences between generations in a very common sense and easy to understand approach. The session was very engaging and challenged the way we need to think and approach our roles of a leader with today’s workforce.
