02 Feb Why I Love Advising Millennials
I love discussing how millennials make an ideal candidate to advise. They are more interested in winning than how they are perceived by others. A major characteristic of millennials is their curiosity, which allows them to be open to feedback, and to the practices that are necessary during pivots in their company as it grows. CEO millennials have become a new and exciting clientele for the Sandler Group. Watch this clip to learn more:
The most interesting thing that’s happened recently to the Sandler Group is the advising of CEO millennials. Millennials are particularly exciting because they’re pragmatic. They’re looking for authenticity, a stimulating work environment and flexibility.
Let me tell you a little bit about how we advise them. Because they are so pragmatic, they’re more interested in winning than how they’re perceived by others. This makes them an ideal candidate to advise. They’re quick to pivot. They’re quick to change. They’re quick to continue to grow in new directions.
Millennials’ curiosity allows them to be open to feedback and exposing their blind spots, and open to the practices that are necessary for change. As a result, the time it takes for them to change or to improve in a specific area is accelerated.
