As the millennials enter the workforce, more and more are moving into leadership positions. They’re taking on the responsibilities of leading other millennials while still incorporating the best leadership techniques from older generations. Tier 1 Event Management holds many workshops on leadership, during which the following points are covered:
- Honesty and Transparency Go a Long Way: Whether you’re leading millennials or have a team of mixed generations, it’s crucial to be transparent and honest with your team. When they know you’ll share all necessary information with them, they’ll work hard to do the same for you.
- Build Relationships: When Tier 1 Event Management leaders are first assigned to a team, they know they need to take the time and build positive relationships with each associate. Knowing someone well means you know what their passions and interests are, which makes it much easier for you to guide them in the future.
- Find a Mentor: Even the most experienced leaders have people they talk to and seek advice from. Find someone you trust who has experience dealing with issues similar to those you are likely to face and build a relationship with them. Then you’ll have someone to call when you really need advice.
As your career continues to grow and you find yourself in more and more leadership positions, remember to always be true to yourself and try to be authentic. You’ll inspire others this way. For more leadership insights, follow Tier 1 Event Management on Facebook.
