Leaders and managers today are diligently searching for ways to fit the incoming workforce into the existing workplace, have them follow established protocol, and perform as expected.
The problem is, the new generations have little interest in playing by the old rules. They follow a completely different set of rules built around deeply held core values which diverge sharply from those of previous generations—and from workplace expectations.
Though the ideals of youth mature over time, core values don’t change so, to get the best from the emerging workforce and meet organizational goals, leaders must stop trying to change their people and focus on changing the game.
The small, incremental changes that once worked no longer get the desired results, and it is unlikely they ever will again. The values and mindset that drive the decisions and behaviors of the newer generations are not a temporary phase or a mere ripple in a pond, this is a sea change; a global power shift unlike any in recorded history.
