For the most part I find leading millennials to be energizing and inspiring. Here's why.
- They are intrinsically motivated. It'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 their personal goals and organizational goals.
- They are tenacious. Some 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 the drive without killing the spirit.
- They are charitable. Despite the label of being self-centered, they get that they are part of a bigger picture. Donating to charities and volunteering their time is part of their DNA. They believe that the 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.
