My newsletter this week contained tips for dealing with Generation Y entry level employees. If you are a Boomer or Gen X er, you may be frustrated in dealing with the "Y’s" if you don’t study what things are important to them.
The saavy employer knows that good managment is supported with good leadership.
Seth Burgess of Equimax emailed the following note today after reading the newsletter. He gave me permission to post it here.
Great article on Youthful Employees. I love the line:
If you’ve been spending too much time in the shallow end of the think tank of your business, take your thinking to a deeper level.
Maybe you received and had time to read my article a year or more ago about being a "coach and cheerleader" for your employees. Unfortunately, I got some angry replies from the people who most need to hear this. They seemed to think that being a coach and cheerleader meant no longer being the boss. It’s the same with horses and people. These folks don’t seem to understand that leadership is an art that does best when you are in touch with and can accurately read the people or horses you are leading.
Keep up the great work!
Leadership is key to getting what you want from people and horses. Well said, Seth.
