The world has labeled our current generation of young professionals as Millennials, giving them a long list of stigmas to prove wrong. It’s been said that they are lazy, feel entitled and don’t know what they want.
Interestingly enough, our research found that Millennials are driven, feel like they have something to prove and, while they may not know what they want, they are certain of what they don’t want. They have no interest in spending their lives stuck in jobs they hate, finding themselves bankrupt because they spent their time accumulating stuff, or seeing their health and relationships go down the drain because they spent more time at work than taking care of themselves and their loved ones.
We want to discover a new way to look at and serve this rising group of young leaders. We hope to help them discover their place in the world. To do that, we are hosting creative events that have an atmosphere for engagement and open dialogue around the reality of being the next generation of trailblazers.
Leadercast Discover was first held in an Atlanta-based art gallery owned by Dakoro Edwards. Actor and acting coach Zane Stephens hosted the evening and shared his thoughts on leadership with the audience. All of those in attendance then contributed to an art piece that was completed by Dakoro and later donated to a local school in hopes of inspiring the students to pursue their passions.
We believe this generation called Millennials will discover their purpose and find their leadership voice through open dialogue and acceptance, and by creating opportunities for engagement and collaboration.
