As you know, seasoned sales leaders are retiring at a record pace. Many of us are concerned, and have resigned ourselves to the fact that many Millennials just aren’t ready to fill the gap by moving into sales and leadership roles. In fact, many of us complain about this generation.
Recently a colleague asked me,
“Shouldn’t we stop complaining and start mentoring, coaching, and, well, leading the next generation of leaders?”
Stop Complaining about Millennial Sellers on Your Sales Team & Start Leading!
My colleague, Danita Bye, founder of Sales Growth Specialists, conducted a recent survey of over 300 business leaders about working with Millennials. Apparently, I was not alone in my concerns.
In fact, 60% of CEOs and presidents indicated that they have deep concerns about working with the millennial salespeople and leaders.
In her new book, Millennials Matter: Proven Strategies for Building Your Next Gen Leader, Danita addresses these concerns head-on and shares solutions for sales leaders who feel there’s no hope.
She provides coaching inspiration and action steps to harness the strengths of your future leaders and sales professionals so that they can become one of your greatest assets and a testimony to your leadership legacy, as you grow and/or transition your business.
Filled with personal stories, Millennials Matter aims to stimulate reflection on your own years of leadership and sales development as you exhort, affirm and encourage your up-and-coming mentees.
When Danita was asked why she wrote this book, she said:
During the many hours I’ve talked with trusted mentors, colleagues, family, and friends, one realization has stood out: Millennials in sales and leadership need our help.
The world is undergoing a rapid shift, and millions of young adults struggle to find their footing. Amid this cultural chaos, next-gen leaders need the benefit of what we know. They need our wisdom and our insights.
This message is for all of us who are builders of companies and leaders of people.
