I hear a lot of speculation, and even criticism of Millennials about what they want in life, but what do they really want in a job? Intelligence Group studies of Millennials found that: • 64% of them say it’s a priority for them to make the world a better place. • 72% would like to be their own boss. But if they did work for a boss, 79% of them would want that boss to serve more as a coach or mentor.
• 88% prefer a collaborative work-culture rather than a competitive one. • 74% want flexible work schedules. • 88% want “work-life integration,” because work and life now blend together inextricably.
Here are some key attributes leaders in the company should model in order to help people develop—and they are especially true for Millennials who are looking for genuineness: Authenticity—This is the foundation for developing people. Servanthood—This is the soul for developing people. Growth—This is the measurement for developing people. Excellence—This is the standard for developing people. u Passion—This is the fuel for developing people. Success—This is the purpose of developing people.
Remember Chemistry — Character — Capacity — Contribution. This is truly what our young people are all about.
Thanks to John Maxwell and his teachings to keep us all connecting intergenerationally connecting. I am blessed to have him as my mentor.
When you are not with God, your creative enegy stops flowing and you feel it.
Leadership principals never change. The way they are used in your daily life and at the workplace has. The reason, well there are a few. With the pressures of coming out of the Great Recession, most people are just back financially but not all are tuned into the world the same. Technology has been a disrupted force in many people’s lifelong careers and there are needing to adapt to it and their ever-looming fear that it could take their place. Many Gen X think this way, That this disruptive technology could cost me my job. While that could be true it hasn’t yet so why would you not start growing and learning more and always have a plan B. I have news though. Guess what everyone talks about the millennials when in fact they forgot the GenXers that are now coming into their time in a big way. Young GenXers could be in the workforce for another 30 years or more. According to
When you use leadership values to stand out in the crowd, on top of the heap, no matter who you are or what your position, you will always have a career and land on your feet. It is true! The only thing stopping you is the f___ word “FEAR”. I am not going to go into all the ways fear reaks havoc in our lives today. I am going to suggest that you do not live in awareness.
For example, at 5:44, this morning I had my energy flowing which had been blocked by God. Energy always exists. It just changes forms and therefore can change your mind back to that negative voice inside ” You can’t do that “or “Who do you think you are”, of course, you will lose your job”. Do you really believe any of this> On the surface the answer is probably a resounding “YES”? The true answer is you can create you when you dive into a deeper mindset because what comes along with that is a “higher awareness.” I was just like you 2 years ago. I will tell you about that another time and how I solved my telling the voice inside how to go away once and for all. When you find out the tools and the secret, no one can stop you in anything you do but YOU. It is as true today as it was back in the days when Napolean Hill, wrote his book written in 1937, Think and Grow Rich or James Allen’s, As a Man Thinketh,
For years people truly stopped using the leadership principles that originally got you your first job. You must have had something that the person who hired you saw, what was it? Stay deeply in that question. You’ll begin to touch base with true awareness. And when you do, your life will never be the same. I promise you that!

We are all beautiful roses (or pick your favorite flower). I prefer red roses. But weeds have strangled and stunted the growth of our lovely garden. These weeds have negatively impacted us in all areas of our life. And maybe there are a few roots that are growing thistle in your garden among the flowers budded there, and the thistle of anger or hatred strangles the buds and they never survive.
Please take a moment to visualize yourself as a budding flower and those ugly thistle leaves strangling you. The thistle is rooted so deep that this evil seems to have the power to kill the flower. But that evil can only choke that flower’s growth if it is not uprooted as soon as it rears its ugly head. If that first thistle leaf is halted and weeded out, the rose can then blossom into a magnificent wonder.
Picture yourself as the rose. When you see that evil weed has touched you in the forms of betrayal, pain, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, or with any horrible hurt that touches us in life, attack those weeds. If we do not, then good will not prevail and ugliness will win. So as you live as a rose in your garden bed, be vigilant for the first sign of thistle and root it out. Do not let this foe overcome your unique beauty. The world needs your fragrance
