Increasing effectiveness of millennial teams

Collaboration and communication skills development is the opportunity to get your team on the same page and give them the skills they need to work strategically and exceed your expectations.

 

Virtual team building is an online session dedicated to your employees – 3 hours full of activities, games and quizzes that will put some extra oil into your team engine in order to help it run better and enhanced the relationship between the team members.

 

Advantages of collaboration skills development:

  • Team members are more energized and feel more comfortable in talking with each other and sharing private information, thus getting involved in private conversations more often.
  • Team members feel more at ease with asking for help/ clarification/ debriefing about information they didn’t understand or didn’t receive.
  • Team members develop positive relationships due to the discovery of similarities and common interests between themselves.
  • Team members are more likely to cooperate as a team and use all talents, skills and experience in the best way.

 

When building a team, it is crucial to be very clear about the nature of the team, its goals, objectives and agreements. On a soft-side, a team can only effectively work together when its members build the necessary virtual collaboration skills: the employees should be self-motivated, result-oriented, self-reliant and great communicators and team players. The reality check will show the strengths and weaknesses of your current team, the degree of alignment and understanding of the team goals and objectives as well as the team’s technological fluency. It will measure preferences around working methods and communication styles; differences in thinking styles, etc.

MENTORING for Millennial leaders

We create and kick-off of an internal mentorship program for your company. Employees from all parts of organization will be informed, prepared and matched for mentoring program where older employees mentor the younger and vice-versa.

 

  •        Reverse mentoring

Reverse mentoring is an initiative where older executives are mentored by younger employees on topics like technology, social media and current trends. Yes, you read that correctly. Millennials mentoring executives.

A Millennial is matched with an executive and is assigned to teach him/ her about, let’s say, how to use social media in order to connect with customers. It’s an effective way to give junior employees a window into the higher levels of the organization, so that when the mentees retire, the younger generation has a better understanding of the business.

Inevitably, there are times when the older mentees give feedback or advice to their young associates, so in effect, the coaching becomes mutual.

 

  •        Group Mentoring

Group mentoring is a less-resource-intensive, but still effective way of giving Millennials the feedback they crave. It can be led by a more senior manager or can be peer-to-peer, but in both cases, the company sets up a technology platform that allows employees to define mentoring in their own terms.

 

Why mentoring is the best thing you can do for millennials?

  1. Younger employees feel more prepared

A mentor can give an inexperienced hire exposure and new ways of thinking. He or she can also provide the mentee with sage words of advice and guide the mentee’s professional development at a crucial point in their career.

  1. Mentors feel fulfilled

Mentors who take on a mentee will experience recognition as a leader in a certain field, in addition to taking advantage of an opportunity of leadership. The interaction between the tried and true and the new creates an opportunity for those who have been at the company for a long time to reflect on their practiced habits.

  1. Company growth occurs

When a company invests in mentorship, it is investing in the progression of the brightest new hires–and that includes millennials. Mentorship aids in preventing the best and most-experienced performers from growing bored with their mundane routines. Instead, mentorship aims to keep these higher-ups engaged–and subsequently more motivated to continue producing high quality work for the company.
