Millennials have been under the spot light for quite some time for many reasons, one of which is their infamous perceptions that differ greatly from their predecessors. However, it is these ideologies that are challenging conventional norms and give rise to something unique. We are going to list out certain key elements that will be highly intrinsic in helping them enhance their actions to fight from the front.
Never Stop Learning.
Most think Leadership is an end to learning, nothing could be further from the truth. Demarcating boundaries with respect to the learning process is like putting the cart in front of the horse. By engaging in the practice of constant learning, a good leader opens up to the world of not bookish knowledge but a practical understanding of the real world where they receive enlightenment by the people around, their stories and achieve the true concept of information. Furthermore, by engaging in a one on one discussion, a good leader also cultivates relationships that go beyond the notion of hierarchy, thereby, opening the portal of open communication and not to forget, high productivity.
Walk the Talk.
Long speeches and motivational quotes only take you so far. It is the leader’s dedication and the will to focus on result orientation that helps take them towards the goal on the horizon. A genuine leader possesses ownership qualities and assesses his own mental persona, without wasting time in changing other’s perspective but rather influence them and tap into their credibility. The work is delegated to everyone where problems are solved together and analysed daily as a team rather as a one-man show.
Believe in Guidance and Not Micro-Management.
No one likes to be told they are wrong or be patronized into realizing that their jobs could have been easily handled by someone else. By understanding the difference between guidance and nagging, a good leader can bring in a positive change in the follower where they will willingly delve themselves into the task of a job well done. By creating the culture of equality and treating teammates as equal, the leader automatically paves a way to betterment for them and enrich their professional lives multi-fold. Be a mentor and a friend.
