Fascinating Stuff About Millennials!

Management Research Group (MRG) has been administering Leadership Effectiveness Analyses for 34 years. They took LEA results from 25-35 year olds from 30 years ago and compared to LEA results from current 25-35 year olds and found virtually no differences in results.  

It is important to note that unlike most Lickert-based 360s which ask someone to score based on 1-10, always to never, etc., MRG uses a semi-ipsative tool which cannot be gamed, and eliminates most common rater biases.  The Leadership Effectiveness Analysis is a 360 degree feedback tool designed to evaluate how someone’s leadership practices are perceived by others.

It seems our complaints are more about people in their 20’s and early 30’s and less about one generation or another.  I know, I know!  But “I was different when I was their age!”  I have no doubt!  But when you think about most of your peers — just imagine your last high school reunion — you were probably different from them, too.  That’s why you achieved what you did because you were different form the rest.  Our challenge is to continue to seek those diamonds in the rough, and not just settle for anything that briefly sparkles.  They are out there; sometimes we just need to refine our selection processes!
