Industry Mentoring Workshop #5 – Millennial Leadership!
October 31 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm| Free
“Millennials” actually want to be in charge.
According to a survey conducted by Work Place Trends, 91% of millennial respondents expressed a desire to lead. Nearly 50% of them also said that they believed leadership is the empowerment of others. From the same survey more than half indicated they believed they had strong leadership skills in the areas of communication and relationship building. However, many also indicated a lack of confidence in industry experience and technical expertise.
Perhaps what really stands out is that millennials seem to approach leadership in different ways than previous generations. They also have different expectations of the leaders they work under. For example, the majority also believes that international companies are not doing enough when it comes to social responsibilities (purpose) Clearly, whether they are seeking to become leaders themselves, or responding to the leadership styles of their employers, millennials are causing some disruption to traditional leadership.
Let’s have a conversation with a millenial who has studied millenial leadership and after he left Woodside become an entrpreneur who tested his theories and findings about leadership in his own business.
Let’s talk about what it is to be a millenial in today’s world, about personal leadership and dealing with baby boomer-managers, fulfilling a personal purpose and being aligned with the business purpose.
On Wednesday, 31st October, SPE WA / SEA / SUT and EA collaboratively bring you an opportunity to hear from Ziad and his advice for your professional development –
Date – Wednesday, 31st October
Time – 5pm (5:30pm start) to 6:30pm
Venue – Engineers Australia Auditorium, West Perth
Speaker – Ziad Zammar
Ziad Zammar, serial entrepreneur, ex Woodside engineer moved into a wildly different industry that presented its own unique challenges. By utilising the power of purpose, hard work and leading a work culture that enfranchised his staff, his first foray into the fraught world of hospitality has been a runaway success. It was through the experience of building a successful business in the age of social media that Ziad came to appreciate a new drive: helping others do the same. Now established as a leading business strategist in Millennial Leadership, Branding & Culture, he has worked with entrepreneurs and professionals on their own capacity for inspiring change through leadership, by rejecting authoritarian norms and embracing autonomy, empathy and purpose.
We hope to see you all there!
