Top 10 leadership traits Gen-Y want in their leaders at work
September 24, 2008
My friend Bea Fields and her colleagues at MillennialLeaders.com surveyed 320 Generation Y careerists (ages 21-27) about leadership. Read about the survey HERE.
One of the questions asked:
What leadership traits are you most looking for in the leaders in your workplace?
Here are the top 10 responses:
2: The ability to inspire
9: Concern and care for employees
10: The ability to truly listen
The question you should be asking yourself is "Do my current leaders measure up?" If you answered with anything other than a resounding "YES!" then your business is at risk.
Are you ready to upgrade to a new type of leadership that's in complete alignment with the top 10 list? CLICK HERE to learn more.
As a Gen-Y leadership coach and a proud member of Gen-Y, I really think that number 3 is of the utmost importance. Gen-Y careerists want to see that whatever an organization defines as its core values are consistently put into practice. This is true integrity.
