Millennial Sales Leadership: Your Millennial Wants You to Walk Alongside Them (TEDx Talk)
Shortly after my son, Westin, attended a premier global leadership conference, he told me something that changed everything I had planned for the next couple of months – even years.
What will you do if you suddenly get a message that shifts the trajectory of your life?
He said, “Mom, you must prioritize passing your leadership wisdom and insight on to the next generation. We can access a plethora of brilliant talking heads 24/7. But, Mom, that’s not what we need. We need wise leaders who know us, and who care about us. We need coaches and mentors to walk alongside us and show us what to do and how to do it.”
Over time, I realized that this was not just a message from my son to me. It’s a message from all of our sons and daughters. In fact, it’s a cry from this generation of up-and-coming leaders to all of us as seasoned, experienced, wise, character-based leaders. They need us to reach out to them. It’s a call to stop complaining and to start coaching and mentoring. I wrote Millennials Matter to help these leaders with the coaching and mentoring of their Next-gen leaders.
