Enhancing Millennial Leadership
Enhancing the number of millennial leadership within the institution should become one of its priorities due to the adverse benefits it brings to the organization’s operations towards meeting its set goals and objectives. Lack of enough employees within the organization is not just a challenge to the business, but also to the board of management as this is capable of hindering production processes. As part of the study conducted, by the coming year 2030, it is approximated that only 20 percent of the labor pool will comprise of age groups other than millennial. It is therefore essential that there should include a formulation of an appropriate plan that will highlight the best practices for leadership growth among this age group with a full understanding of the differences with millennial.
Therefore, there are some best practices that when regularly practiced will lead to an increased number of millennial leaders. The first step is through coming up with regular meetings as this will create an opportunity for interacting with the workers through answering their questions, providing feedbacks to pressing issues and encouraging them to grow. These meetings should not only take place in a conference room table but can also be done through the use of modern technology such as the use of Skype or even group chats (Myers & Sadaghiani, 2010). These regular meetings are essential as the management will be meeting with their group leaders and coming up with appropriate expectations. It is necessary to create a condition where the team members are free to ask questions while giving them the required support as millennial workers are likely to be loyal when they feel connected with the institution and its operations.
According to Myers, K. K., & Sadaghiani, K. (2010), millennial employees should be subjected to both internal and external leadership training and programs as these opportunities are a right tool of encouraging workers to grow and earn their loyalty. A well-structured leadership program will strategically provide a direct link to an employee’s next phase of the business and their regular duties. Employees being mentored will find confidence in operating with a knowledgeable, willing participant, giving them the needed sense of leadership. This kind of program often inspires future leaders in putting their best initiatives as they will new fresh ideas and techniques presented by an outside trainer.
