073: Leadership for MIllennials (with Peter Berry)

March 27, 2019

This quarter, we’ve talked about leadership from several different perspectives. My guest today is Peter Berry, whose leadership experience is varied and fascinating; particularly interesting in light of his undergraduate degree in Fine Arts.

Peter is a perfect example of how a liberal arts degree can be a great springboard for moving into leadership roles.

Peter talks about what employers are looking for in today’s workforce, both for entry-level positions and as Millennials step into leadership roles.

We talk about emotional intelligence, managing employees, critical thinking skills, communication skills, the ability to articulate a vision and enroll others in that vision, and the ability to offer solutions as being the skills employers seek to move employees into the leadership ranks.

One of my favorite concepts from our conversation is what Peter calls “Life/Work Balance,” because Millennials put their quality of life before their job. Sure, they want to work hard and are willing to give their all at work…they just don’t want to work 60 hours a week at the expense of their lives.

Peter talks about some of the best practices he’s helped build in the companies he’s led…and how those practices serve to engage and motivate Millennials.
