“How has technology and social media shaped the leadership style within the millennial generation?”

We know how technology is playing a key-role in Covid-19 era. Little did we know about how our lives will change by the time we enter 2020.

Social Media is seen as both a boon and a bane nowadays. Leadership style is widely impacted by the presence and dominance of Technology and Social Media.

Social media is a computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and information through the building of virtual networks and communities. By design, social media is Internet-based and gives users quick electronic communication of content. Content includes personal information, documents, videos, and photos. Users engage with social media via a computer, tablet, or smartphone via web-based software or applications.

Social media originated as a way to interact with friends and family but was later adopted by businesses that wanted to take advantage of a popular new communication method to reach out to customers. The power of social media is the ability to connect and share information with anyone on Earth, or with many people simultaneously.

Talking about Technology, we have to understand that we cannot exist in a world without technology. We have come a long way and are now used to Technology. When it comes to leadership and youth, millennials have defied the traditional leadership paradigm by possessing different values and expectations than their leaders. Given the unique cultural and technical context in which millennials were raised, it is not surprising that their career motivation is driven by a common set of priorities. Companies have now begun to recognize the millennials’ reshaping prowess, and they believe that it is in the best interests of the organization to adapt the working climate to welcome the millennials. Since millennials’ interests and desires are a direct consequence of how the world is evolving, adapting to the changes they stimulate is a natural and necessary process.
