Sparta Consulting Group (Hollywood, FL) believes that our Millennial employees will make great leaders – because well, we already have some millennial leaders and they’re tremendous. The term ‘Millennial’ has only been associated with laziness and helplessness as of late. Why? It is because older generations feel as if Millennials require instant gratification to be satisfied and don’t have what it takes for the long haul.
The truth is that you can’t judge an entire generation of people off of the current state of technology. There is no proven correlation between an increase in technology and a decrease in intelligence or drive! Here are 3 reasons why Millennials make great leaders.
1. Access to Data
The very first personal computer went on the market in 1971. Today, we have computers with that fit in our pockets. You want to know how the stock market is doing? Bam, it’s right there on your cell phone. Curious as to what new laws and regulations are being passed or presented? The information is at your fingertips.
You could say that having such easy access to data would make Millennials lazy because they don’t have to wait for a newspaper and scan through it to see what’s going on in the world. However, being informed and gaining knowledge instantly makes for smarter people. Leaders need to be intelligent, informed, and always aware of the social and business climate.
2. Tech Savvy
This seems like an obvious one, but Millennials grew up with technology. The rapid advancement of technology requires prepared and knowledgeable leaders. Leaders need to know how to react and deal with these advancements in their own workplace.
There is no question that businesses can be left in the dust if they are not keeping up with this progress! Millennials have the imperative capability of adapting to new technology in a seamless manner, which is another reason why they make for great leaders and employees at Sparta Consulting Group.
3. Fresh Ideas
Originality is a competitive advantage that can lead a company into new markets and keep competitors on their toes. With so much information being driven into their brains on a daily basis, Millennials have newfound sources for inspiration and new ideas.
Being able to produce a fresh and innovative vision has enormous value in today’s fast-moving world. ‘The next big thing’ is always a goal of companies who are trying to gain and edge on the competition and Millennials are well-equipped for the challenge.
