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 streaming into workplace culture, understanding the millennial mindset is increasingly important to a business. First, it should be understood that the nature of the millennial soul is not age-specific, and rather an expression of the values championed by this new wave of team members. The essence of the millennial soul speaks to transformation. Those who possess it 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 that it can positively transform the old, traditional ways of approaching business-as-usual. It seems one can do good – and still make money while doing so.
Millennials were born during an unstable economic time. It’s no wonder that they have a strong grasp on saving and future planning, and also share particular attitudes and perspectives on work and employment in general. Lifestyle and freedom drive millennials and there is a dynamic equilibrium between their 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 the world.
“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.”
