Workforce Management
What should HR consider when empowering younger
workers as managers? The following considerations will
have an impact on the development of leadership skills:
* Achievement motivation is based on quick results so
training will need to counterbalance the value of time to
evolve concepts.
* The tendency to challenge the status quo will
encourage training styles that focus on productive ways
to do just that, but acknowledging when that approach
may be ineffective will be essential.
* Tech savviness will influence a more knowledge-based
managerial style.
* The desire to continuously add skills will drive training
approaches that are nimble and can retain attention.
Management development programs designed for
volume efficiency-such as classes and online programs
that are heavily driven by pre-designed content, and
social or group activities-will not work. Organizations
need to focus on aligning learning and development
with tech savviness, independence, social responsibility,
and a desire for career growth and achievement
orientation.
Millennials are born entrepreneurs and can produce
just about anything on their own by using technology
that is readily available. They seek to continuously add
skills to their repertoire and have more access to data
and information than any generation before. They are
programmed to challenge the status quo; however, they
may not have the interpersonal communication skills to
consistently do so well. Development programs, career
assignments, and special projects should align to these
traits. For example:
* As knowledge-based learners and managers, make
information readily available to millennials through
subscriptions, subject-matter experts, and online
resource tools.
* Help build project management and planning skills to
counterbalance tendencies to focus on quick results.
* Give them complex project opportunities to build
critical-thinking skills in order to challenge the status
quo and leverage their social values.
* Complement skills development with real-time

feedback and coaching around communication
opportunities.
HR can actually simplify traditional development
programs by using more agile, experiential learning. In
the case of developing the tech-savvy millennials, less
truly can be more, and smarter development activities
are definitely better than harder.
