LEADING THE FUTURE WORKFORCE
WHAT DOES OUR FUTURE WORKFORCE NEED FROM OUR LEADERSHIP?
This year I’ve been watching my son embark on his first year of University, and turning 18 years old. He’s studying Engineering and the transition from school to uni life has been an interesting, and at times challenging, one for ME – I mean “him”! LOL Well, both of us actually.
I’m watching him navigate this new found level of independence and ability to make completely independent choices.
I’m watching him juggle working, studying, social life, paying his way, and learning whats important to him.
He’s stepping into his values as an adult, and at times, learning the hard way.
As I watch this growth, I can’t help but think about how he, and all his friends from school, are our future workforce, and our future leaders in the workforce.
What kind of leaders will they be?
Before we know the answer to that, we need to first answer the question “what kind of leadership do they NEED NOW?”
I’d like to share with you what the research has been telling us about the future of our workforce, and as leaders what you may need to be doing to attract, retain and most importantly, DEVELOP the best talent in your team in the year 2020.
A MILLENNIAL WORKFORCE – WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR US AS LEADERS?
Well, Millenials are seeking different experiences from their engagement and participation in the workforce. They are more digitally connected and seek employers and leaders with a connection to purpose and making a difference.
Your ability to attract and retain the right talent on your team in the future will require:
- a strong defined culture
- a demonstration of values, purpose and vision
- a team environment that provides for growth, meaningful work and a sense of belonging and community
They are seeking strong role models, who are able to build connections, foster trust, and inspire change. They need leaders who dare to care, lead by example and embody the values in which they speak.
