In today's fast paced, virtual working world, "Connected Leadership" is the new "Modern Leadership." Millennials and Gen X'ers are demanding a different type of leader, and culture, and if it is not there, they quickly exit.
So many of our youth come from broken families, or single family homes. Combine this fact with the proliferation of digital technology used as a substitute for human connection, and the absence of a community/neighborhood in today's culture. As a result, the work environment has to become the new community center. It can’t just be a place to work it has to be a place where people mentored, a sense of purpose and community, they feel heard, supported, and valued, and they feel they make a difference with their contributions. Leaders can’t just dictate to this new workforce, they have to be advocates and support, value, and care about their people. When employees are happy, business thrive by 2.5 in revenues compared to those who don’t.
