Gen Y: The most frustrating and demanding generation
“They always want more… They’re not grateful… You offer something up and it becomes an expectation. There’s a real sense of—well, an entitlement.”
When it comes to work, Gen Y are often spoken of as lazy, flaky, and non-committal, yet with an overblown sense of “entitlement” about salary, time off, and career progression. However, in-depth research by well respected companies shows that their attitude is often a bi-product of frustration. They yearn for work that means something, work that allows them to feel like they are contributing to something bigger than themselves. If they are going to be at work, then they expect to work for someone they respect and admire, who’s has values they align with, and who provides work that is meaningful. Gen Y are known to have the biggest social conscience, volunteering more time to causes that assist the planet, its environment and people than any other past generation. And yes, rightly or wrongly, they do have a high sense of entitlement for doing the work they are asked to do.
They see they have two options: either they find a job that provides meaningful output, working for a manager they admire, or they find a job that eats up a minimum of their energy and time, thereby affording them the freedom they want to pursue meaning and a social contribution outside paid employment. Financial Researchers such as Deloittes, KPMG and Mercer also confirms that Gen Y are NOT loyal to companies. They are loyal to managers who take an active interest in their development, listen to, acknowledge their ideas and work with them to achieve meaningful results and improve their skills.
The question then is, how meaningful to them, is the output in your work environment and is your leadership a style that they admire? These are tough questions.
Leadership: “The art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it” Dwight D. Eisenhower
What I’m about to share with you is a mind shift for many managers . It is a Leadership syle based on speaking authentically and confidentially with your staff. It is based on Executive Coaching principles and skills that help managers to quickly align with, motivate, stretch and hold staff accountable for their own results. It is ideally used by managers with staff under 35 years of age.
This Leadership style turns traditional management on its head and therefore more traditionalists may struggle with it at first but for those who try it, the results can be astonishing as Gen Y sit up, take notice and begin engaging postiively with you within a few hours or days.
