What's the best way to manage (lead) Gen-Y ?
You already know Gen-Y is unlike any other generation you've had the opportunity to lead.
They are the children of the Baby Boomers and are now the largest generation in the history of the world. This is the generation you must learn to lead if you are to be successful!
Employers thought Gen-Y would simply be an extension of Gen-X or Boomers but that hasn't been the case at all.
- Enjoy working together and are highly connected (always on computers, cell phones, text messaging, instant messaging, social networking, blogs, multi-player gaming, etc.)
- Seek work-life balance
- Expect to be highly successful and are upbeat
- Reward and recognition driven
- Short term focused
- Supremely tech savvy
- Want managers they can admire
If you try to manage Gen-Y using an old, outdated, command-and-control style of leadership that might have worked on Boomers or Gen-X, this generation will walk out your door before lunch. And before the end of the day, they'll blog, IM, and text about their experience with you (warning their friends to stay away).
Times have changed and managers must change with the times or be left behind.
