Millennials leading Millennials and making a difference

Millennials leading Millennials and making a difference

In the The Deloitte Global Millennial Survey 2020  we see that in 2016 76% of millennials saw business, in general, as a force for good.

In December 2019, this number went down as 51% of millennials saw business, in general, as a force for good

In May 2020, as the COVID-19 health pandemic spread around the world, only 41% of Millennials agreed that business was having a positive impact on wider society.

If I were to stop there with the results shared on the 2020 Deloitte Global Millennial survey this would be such a gloomy picture.

However, as the survey shared, at the  individual employer’ level, reputations fared better: Millennials (ages 24-39) gave their employers high marks for their pandemic responses and, for the first time in four years, more Millennials said they want to stay with their employers for five or more years rather than leave within 2 years This is unprecedented since the question was first asked in 2016.

Millennials also said that companies are doing more to align with their interests, including

·        and supporting career development through training and mentorship

·        creating diverse and inclusive work environments

·        making a positive impact on local communities.

Listen to 2 millennial leaders as they share the systems and process that are working for them as they seek to build a reputation and a culture that moves them forward in working with their peers.

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
The Art of Leadership focuses on soft skills... some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Dr. Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential!

Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives.

This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Niña at https://www.ninaellison.com

Niña Ellison

In 2019, after years of leading teams varying from international disaster relief and healthcare to the US Corporate world, Niña founded Healthy Leadership to focus on her passion for partnering with leaders in their growth and sustainability. Her own journey into soft skill development has convinced her that while her technical skills helped her get her foot in the door, her soft skills moved the influence of her leadership from success to significance.

As a soft skill specialist Niña takes monthly deep dives in her podcast series, The Art of Leadership, to explore the underlying dimensions of soft skills. She knows that soft skill development is not so much about WHAT but HOW a leader leads.
• From a 10,000 foot view a leader pursuing soft skills asks, “How do I problem solve; How do I manage time and energy?”
• From a 1,000-foot view that same leader, as they dig deeper into soft skills, begins asking questions like, “How do I listen; or How do gain self-control?”
• From Ground Zero the leader recognizes that there are underlying dimensions of soft skills as they ask, “How do I model respect for all; How do I sustain hope; How do I demonstrate appropriate love in the workplace; How do I maintain the right attitude?” How do I lead by serving?

Nina believes that behind every wildly effective and sustainable system and process are leaders and teams who have interwoven soft skills into every phase of their work.
