The secret to managing Gen Y

The secret to managing Gen Y | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it
There’s a good reason why it is called Generation Y – because they’ll always ask ‘Why?’ You’ll often hear ‘Why should I do this?’ and ‘Why are we doing this?’ from this unique, ambitious and passionate generation.
Lasalle Gebbie's insight:

I sometimes wonder whether Gen Y are all that different to the rest of us. It seems everything is more pronounced with this generation and things described in this article are not the sole domain of Gen Y. However, many of the traits that are often attributed to this generation can also be found in Gen Xers who continue to adapt to the everchanging environment.

Let’s Just Stop Calling Them Leaders

Let’s Just Stop Calling Them Leaders | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it
Executives, officials, and managers should have to earn the title of “leader,” not just expect to receive it.
Lasalle Gebbie's insight:

You really don't have to be in a senior role to be a leader. A leader comes in all shapes and sizes. Often, I see leadership and management get mixed up. I have seen some good managers who were simply not leaders and not even comfortable trying to be a leader; then, there are managers who by virtue of their role and rank believe themselves to be leaders yet their actions do not support this.

John Michel's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:33 AM

Pinnacle leaders stand out from everyone else. They are a cut above, and they seem to bring success with them wherever they go. Leadership at this high level lifts the entire organization and creates an environment that benefits everyone in it, contributing to their success. Level 5 leaders often possess an influence that transcends the organization and the industry the leader works in.

David Hain's curator insight, November 23, 2013 7:50 AM

Are you aiming for the Pinnacle?

If you are serious about taking your performance to the next level you’ve got to leave the ways of mediocrity behind to develop a new and improved you.
Lasalle Gebbie's insight:

Of all on the list I am learning and training myself to "win the morning". Rather than lying in bed listening to the radio I now get up and do things I might not have achieved the day before.

Charles Young's curator insight, November 26, 2013 5:43 PM

This is a nice article, especially for Star Wars fans. Another great work of Taoist philosophy which is great for leadership and strategy is of course Sun Tzu's Art of War, the original text is great but there are also adaptions out there, the one I've got at home which is pretty good is linked below.

Is there any excuse for lateness?

Is there any excuse for lateness? | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it
Being late for a meeting is practically a sackable offence. Have we lost the plot?
Lasalle Gebbie's insight:

Most people who know me are very aware of my dislike for latecomers and meetings that start late. It doesn't take much effort to arrive on time and no one should be so arrogant to think their time is more important than others.

 

Those that are late should make an effort to apologise and should not expect to hold up the meeting any longer by asking to be brought up to speed.

Best practice, synergies, dovetail - does anyone really know what these words mean?
Lasalle Gebbie's insight:

"Learnings" is on top of my list as the most annoying and overused word or phrase. This is closely followed by "reach out" and "leverage". I often wonder whether we use of corporate mumbo jumbo simply so we can sound more intelligent or perhaps, conversely, sound less stupid.

Millenials AKA Gen Y or Generation Me. I have worked with some really switched on Millenials who have really progressed their careers at quite a rapid rate. In spite of the stereotypes and disparaging remarks about their supposed selfishness I think we will be in good hands.
