20-Somethings: Your Next Gen Leaders

I recently wrote a post on what 20-Something professionals look for in an organization and what we need to remain engaged and thriving there. As you know (or can remember) working in the same position for several years can become daunting. 20-Somethings, in particular, can become anxious that they may have hit a roadblock early on in their career. And what’s usually the solution? Jumping ship and starting fresh. But it doesn’t have to be that way! 

Check out my recent post on our DiSC Profiles blog! My friends and I weigh in on what we need to succeed as your next gen leaders! And please feel free to share your comments. How does your organization measure up? Do you have anything you’d like to add?

And don’t forget to join us on March 12th for our free webinar on developing your next generation of leaders!



Our next free webinar (March 12th) will focus on how you can develop your next generation of leaders. But, first, you need to attract those future leaders and keep them engaged.

As a 20-Something full-time working professional, I’m clearly familiar with what type of environment I thrive in; however, I also turned to Facebook for other opinions. I wasn’t surprised to read that many of my friends had a lot to say on the topic: some happy and some not-so-happy with their current work arrangements. More importantly, we were all on the same page.

We’re pretty simple creatures. We’re old enough to have responsibilities at home but young enough that we thumb wrestle our spouse to get out of them. We work hard, and we want to feel valued and that we are going somewhere with our career. We’re your best weapon. We’re your next generation of leaders. We have the computer knowledge that younger generations have, but we’ve also got a few years of working experience under our belts. We’re mature but still young enough to be molded into what you’re looking for.

In order to develop next gen leaders you need to understand them. What do they look for in a company? What keeps them engaged? What do they need to develop? Read on to find out the answers.

Mobile Manners During Meetings

Are you guilty of texting, emailing or answering a call while you’re in a meeting? Read on… that type of behavior is not so well-received. Read on for some interesting statistics on mobile manners.

mobile manners

According to a report from Howard University and the University of Southern California that analyzed data from more than 350 workers: 

  • 8 in 10 consider it rarely or never acceptable to talk on the phone, text or email during a meeting. 
  • Women are twice as likely as men to be offended. 
  • Professionals in the West, especially the Southwest, are far less accepting than those on the East Coast. 
  • Workers age 21 to 30 are more than three times as likely as those over 40 to consider it appropriate to check texts and email at meetings.
