The Best Way to Lead Millennials and Lots of Other People
Join us on the View from the Top podcast as we interview Chris Tuff. In this episode, we talk about why the younger generation expects that their passions will be a part of their work. It is causing a lot of workplace tension and is only exacerbated by the ‘great resignation.’ Chris offers solutions to this problem, including teaching traits that come naturally to older generations, such as building interpersonal skills. We also discuss the value of attending conferences and how they can greatly benefit you both professionally and personally. If you're looking for tips on building a successful business and team, this is an episode you want to experience!
3 Key Takeaways
- The importance of authentic connection in the workplace. Conversations shouldn’t just be about “hey why did you clock in late today” or “how is this project coming along.” Connect with your employees on a personal level. Are they satisfied with their current position? How is their home and family life? What did they do over the weekend?
- The importance of understanding different generations and cultures in the workplace and creating an environment where everyone can thrive.
- Leadership and how it applies to small businesses. Small businesses are efficient and entrepreneurial run, but they can also be overwhelmed, with leaders either wanting to focus on their craft or avoid dealing with HR and marketing. Chris emphasizes the need for leaders to build the right team and delegate responsibilities so they can focus on what they do best.
