And before we all balk at their naivety, perhaps we should give them some credit? Maybe there's some method to their madness in thinking that the world of work should revolve around them?

Have you noticed what is happening at your workplace? Have a little look around you now? Are a lot of your colleagues looking a lot younger than you? Does it seem that your workplace is full of ‘bright young things’ who see the world differently from you? That’s because your workplace is increasingly a place dominated by 20- and 30-somethings who may indeed see the world quite differently from the way you do. What has started inevitably as a trickle is about to become a torrent and with this new tide of Millennials (born c.1980-2000) arriving into the workplace, will come a scouring effect on organisations. It’s about time.

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

Emotional Intelligence is also referred to as our Emotional Intelligence Quotient or the degree to which our emotional intelligence is developed. For many years we have known about and used IQ (Intelligence Quotient) as a measure of our personal effectiveness and ability to deal with problems of varying degrees of complexity.
