Book Excerpt from Lead by Greatness: New Leaders for a New Generation

The following is an excerpt from Lead by Greatness.

Unlocking young people's energy will transform your team, propel your business, and be personally exhilarating for you.

WELL-DIRECTED, talented young people in your business can help accelerate your journey into the future and help you leapfrog from yesterday to tomorrow. Ideally, you want droves of brilliant young talent craving to work on your team because your corporate soul resonates with them, because they feel inspired by your higher corporate purpose and are energized by your mentorship. You need young people who will joyfully help you build your organization and keep it at the cutting edge. Young talent should tweet on Twitter about how yours is the best place for people like them to work. Your talent should be beyond the reach of avaricious headhunters, and your competition should be scratching its head in wonder at what you have built and how you did it. You and the people who work for you should love coming to work, and the whole place should pulsate with passionate energy.

This is how it will be if you captivate the imagination of your young talent. Unlocking young people's energy will transform your team, propel your business, and at the same time prove to be personally exhilarating for you.

To captivate young people's imagination and release their exuberant energy, you will also need to:

•           Understand the Internet generation

•           Build a different culture from the one you have

•           Forge a new kind of relationship with your team members
