Millennial Leaders

Are You Properly Investing In This Generation of Leaders & Innovators??

Millennials are in a power position and are driving the future state of business.   Although not seasoned professionals with years of experience, they hold informal power centers within organizations due to their sheer numbers and developing as emerging leaders is critical.

Millennials are very differen2014-11-17-millennialoffice-thumbt than the generations before them in terms of how to keep them engaged.

Companies wanting to tap into this rich cohort of innovation and energy will be required to spend vast amounts of time and capital in order to fully engage and retain the very best.

Smart organizations have gotten the message, Millennials expect a heavy investment in their professional and personal development.

Failure to do so will prove to drive employee attrition in this category, lower employee engagement, and decreased market innovation.  Translation, you will lose your best and brightest to your competitors.

Millennials require principled leadership, ranking this higher than salary and other benefits.  They choose to work for organizations that are open, transparent, fluid and provide consistent feedback.  They believe trust is earned rather than automatically given.  They have been coddled and protected by helicopter parents and have been dubiously labeled the entitled generation.  Why is this relevant?  It is relevant because it impacts their approach to business and places a training burden on the companies who employee them.

Our approach takes into account the need to reset expectations in terms of their roles.  We understand the issues that could most negatively impact engagement and success such as a true understanding of their role and the ROI required.  In dealing with these issues early on, high performers have a more realistic understanding of appropriate compensation and perks.
