LEADER'SIPS' - 3 REASONS TO LOVE LEADING MILLENNIALS
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of millennial-bashing cliches. Are there some annoying traits? Of course. Guess what Boomers, we were no prize either. But for the most part I find leading millennials to be energizing and inspiring. Here's why.
- •They are intrinsically motivatedIt's not about the paycheck. They are driven by personal growth and learning. Their goals will be the reason they succeed. A good leader will frame connections between personal goals and organizational goals.
- •They are tenaciousSome see this trait as impatience. I see it as a mobile generation that is used to working on the go; who have the drive to move forward towards solutions as quickly as possible. A good leader will harness this energy efficiently.
- •They are charitableDespite the label of being self-centered, they get that they are part of a bigger picture. Donating to charities, volunteering their time, and being active in their communities is part of their DNA. They believe that success of a business isn’t defined by finances alone, but how it has improved society. A good leader will support their desire to serve their community.
