New York, NY – Yosh Beier, managing partner of Collaborative Coaching LLC, announced that the firm is seeking individuals to participate in its survey related to generational attitudes toward authority and power in work contexts. The study’s findings will be presented at the 2015 OD Global Summit/IODA Annual Conference in Portland, OR. The firm has been invited to speak about “The Ambivalent Leader: Millennial Leaders and Their Relationship to Power and Rank.”
“The collaborative advantage has become a competitive advantage,” said Beier. “Collaboration cannot be mandated and is more than coordination of effort. Skilled leadership is a key element in creating a culture in which collaboration thrives.”
The survey examines leadership and power in the workplace and explores the generational differences in the mindset of leaders and employees toward hierarchy, rank and the use of power. Millennial and Gen X leaders approach the use of power in different ways based on their formative experiences. The study seeks to identify those differences, how it affects the individual, and impacts the workplace environment.
The survey by Collaborative Coaching LLC will include data across generational groups and will also examine the nuances and psychology of the mindset prevalent in emerging Millennial leaders and discuss the resulting implications for businesses and organizations for leadership development.
The Millennial generation is no longer the young adult in search of a fulfilling career and meaningful opportunity. Born between 1980 and 2000, the oldest Millennials are now 35 years old and rapidly moving into senior leadership positions once held by Gen Xers. As Millennials transition into leadership positions, they will be changing the ways in which power is held, distributed, and utilized.
The firm’s survey is an opportunity for employees of all ages to provide essential information on performance expectations, attitudes toward hierarchy and rank, organization and effectiveness. Responses are confidential, allowing participants to freely share their thoughts, feelings and the benefit of their experiences.
The ability to collaborate is an essential skill in today’s leadership environment and honing those skills are critical. The survey by Collaborative Coaching LLC will assist in identifying the dynamics of Millennial and Gen X emerging leaders and aid in future strategies for executive leadership development as they take the reins of formal power.
