Can you relate?
How many moments have you been delightfully surprised by interns offering clear advice to next steps on company strategy? Listen with intent, listen to ignite, yet also build a culture of sharing vulnerabilities. Fail forward by encouraging strategy to share each week on what went well and what didn’t, and what they subsequently learnt from that. Encourage this behaviour from the dinner table at home for the exciting next generation ahead.
Where is your wise counsel?
Millennials have a hunger to learn and grow skills within their career, Monster magazine found that 72% of millennials value career advancement within a company. This is because they value factors like employee engagement and leadership. Millennials crave feedback and thrive in an environment where they can receive critiques and learn from others; smart leaders should harness this attitude and put in place programs that encourage it. Setting up formal mentoring systems cross generationally can provide listening ears by more experienced employees to sculpture wild ideas with experience and also reverse mentor older counsel.
