The movers and shakers of tomorrow are preparing to take the plunge into the next phase of their professional careers. Some are enrolling into a college of choice struggling with what major to choose for success, while others are researching companies to discern the best opportunities available post graduation.
Millennials want to advance quickly and are keenly interested in professional development, however their impatience is an ingrained factor that will require some adjustment in the generational workplace.
Millennial Leaders Embrace a New Paradigm In Leadership.
Three of the key elements that Millennials are utilizing are that they work hard to build, create, and excel which enables them to empower team members to solve problems. They communicate with clarity and transparency. This is not a foreign concept to their boomer counterparts, but may be one not practiced in quite some time. They work to strive less and enable more, working to ensure that your team knows that has placed trust in what they do and acknowledge and reward successes.
Mindful leadership will keep Millennial leaders and entrepreneurs advancing, creating, innovating, and building the technologies, cultures, and economies of the future.
The class of 2016 will be the last of the generation that will be referred to as Millennials that will be entering into post secondary education. They will have more resources available to them to assist in their career path than ever before as they are overwhelmed daily with information. Having grown up in the “connected age” they are much more adept to face the challenges presented with going to college. They also need to determine what extracurricular activities to participate in order to distinguish themselves from their peers.
A promising outlook ahead for the future.
By the time the graduates are prepared to enter the generational workplace the transition will be smoother from years of adaptation to the changes in the organizational culture. They should also find engaged Millennial leaders that understand change, communicate effectively, and know how to support employees through their uncertainties.
