Millennials want to make a difference. They come into your organization with lots of ideas, enthusiasm, and an eagerness to learn. They are digital natives and naturally collaborative. But they have also been told their entire lives that they have to be leaders to be valued. When their leadership aspirations are frustrated, they disengage and/or leave.
In fact research shows it is the flipside – followership – that makes the difference to early career success and has greatest organizational impact. Yet millennials are the least prepared generation to embrace the role.
People think of followers as passive, order-takers: in other words, follower-sheep. However, today's followership role is so much more: collaborative, creative, initiative-taking, agile. Think wolf pack.
