According to Dusty Staub, leadership expert and CEO of Staub Leadership, we need to not only accept the Generation Y mindset, but adapt and embrace it as well.
The Rise of Millennials.
With millennials invading workplace culture, understanding the millennial mindset is increasingly important to a business. The Millennial Soul is not age-specific, rather an expression of the values that this new wave of team members champions which matters. The essence of the millennial soul speaks to transformation. Those who possess it do not only see the bigger picture: they want to make a contribution, create value, and be valued in return.
For years we have questioned the millennial work ethic, but it is proving to transform the old, traditional ways of approaching business-as-usual. It seems one can do good – and also make money while doing it. Millennials were born in an economic time that was very unstable at best. It’s no wonder they have a strong grasp on future planning and saving and share particular attitudes and perspectives on work and employment in general. Lifestyle and freedom drive millennials and there is a dynamic equilibrium between personal and work life. This mindset is capable of fueling your company’s next relevant idea. Millennials think like entrepreneurs, which is a great thing for America.
“We all want to create some sort of legacy with our lives, and in order to achieve that, we need to focus on the WHY.”
