Leading in Jeans: Millennial Unconventional Leadership in a Mulit-Generational Workforce
Millennials are no longer simply entering a multi-generational workforce; many are leading it. As of 2015, the majority of employees in the workforce are now Millennials, and many are being promoted to supervisory leadership positions. This generation of highly educated 20-30 somethings tend to have an unconventional supervisory style, which can be a source of inspiration... or conflict. To be an effective supervisor it is important for a Millennial to understand the work values and management preferences of the other generations. Millennial leaders can utilize soft skills and self-awareness to address them.
