Tammy Dowley-Blackman Group, LLC

Looking Forward Lab

A learning and development company designed to serve as the “go to” hub for innovative workforce and professional development solutions for Gen Z, the institutions educating/training them, and hiring managers welcoming them into their early career workplaces.

Gen Z Landscape

  • 60 million born between 1995 and 2012
  • Most diverse and technologically savvy generation
  • Started entering the workforce in 2018 but the first generation in 50 years to do so with little to no professional experience

Gen Z Professional Needs

  • 82% report wanting help from supervisors to help set and achieve performance goals at work
  • Gallop reports that only 10% of employees felt their organization did a good job of onboarding
  • Digital natives but 72% of Gen Z prefer face-to-face communication and connection

A digital platform working in tandem with in-person and virtual programming to help Gen Z competitively prepare and perform in the workplace

Tammy partnered with my organization on two occasions to provide professional coaching that addressed critical communications and trust concerns within our team. Both times she guided us through thorny moments with a thoughtful, organized, and effective process and a kind, wise, measured style. She was always agile and responsive. She built strong relationships with each of us. She helped us choose goals and metrics that led us to mutually beneficial solutions. Her skill set is broad, and she has the capacity to help organizations and teams on both micro and macro challenges. Professional development is important and as a supervisor, I am pleased to provide this important resource. I highly recommend Tammy and her firm.
