Leadership has become more of a buzz word now a
days. There is a lot of talk about it, but how truly are we

able to find leaders who are real leaders.

In today’s world we find a lot of artificial leaders who
believes in only self driven goals and benefits and

misuse the power of the role they play.

It is very hard to differentiate in traits but if observed
minutely, there are clear traits which signifies an
“Insecure Leader”.


A Leader who believes in living in a myth
called Leadership, however, is miles

away from what a true leadership is. Lives
in its own world like a frog in the well and
believes to be amongst the best and uses

the power to downgrade others.

Millennials have been given “kind of a bad rap” by being ov erly stereotyped and s tudied. “Millenni als ar e Indi a’s
most diverse generati on. T hey hold more c ollege degrees than any other generation, and they’v e experienc ed
social, economic and political turmoil.
They’re s avvy, educated, sk eptic al, and on top of it all, t hey’re i dealists. All of this has l ed to v ast changes i n the
ways today’s workforce views business, engages with their organiz ations and leaders and m akes decisions
about their c areers. And y et, just as with any gener ation, one must be cautious about assuming one profile fits

However one feels about this gener ation, ther e’s the fact that millennials are going to be the prime engine of the
workplace for years to come. The truth is that companies have to adapt to them, not the other way around.

In order to foc us on Com pany gr owth and its tenure of service, benefits we need to identify top millennial work er
trends for 2019. Here’s his list:

1. Shifting motivations
Salary and culture continue to r ank high on the list for attrac ting millenni al and Gen Z c andidates, but the
following factors are increasingly important:
Flexibility: They ex pec t more control over where and when t hey c an work, with the ability (enough PTO and
work-life balance) to travel and have other life experiences.
Mission driven: T hey are more in touch with the environm ent, s ociety, and the future of both. T hey feel they are
not only repres entative of t heir or ganization, but their organizati on also repres ent w ho they are as individuals
and want to be a part of or ganizations that share similar views. They look for leaders who will make decisions
that will better the world, not just their organizations, and solve the problems of the world through their work.
Development and tr aining opportunities: Bec aus e millennials hav e seen suc h dram atic shifts in the economy,
they seek to have more control ov er the futur e of their car eers. Not only to “recession proof” but also to “future
proof” their careers by constantly learning and developing.

2. Declining levels of loyalty and increased job hopping
These phenomena, well-known to employers or millennials, are largely due to:
Shifting m otivati ons (outlined above): T he key to m anaging this group is understanding the s hifting motivations
and finding ways to meet those needs/wants will help organizations attract and retain top talent.
Higher v alue plac ed on ex periences , constantly w anti ng to try and lear n new things : Managers need to give
thes e empl oyees an opportunity to grow and dev elop in their roles is ess enti al, but also an opportunity to
explor e differ ent fiel ds and disciplines is also a k ey. Keepi ng the work and the environm ent interesti ng and
diverse will keep millennial employees engaged for longer.
Less patience, with a desire for frequent indicators of career progress ( higher pay and/or prom otions): J ob
hopping often allows the quickest opportunity to m ake m ore money and climb the c areer l adder. As a r esult,
organizations are building in a quicker cadence for promotions and pay raises.

3. An increasing lack of basic professional skills/awar eness
Many of these tal ented young peopl e lack ess ential k nowledge about what to w ear, how to act and how to
engage in an office setting. Here’s how to respond:
Managers need to be r eady to guide t hes e new workf orce entries into the professional skills areas. They oft en
don’t have a network of older (par ents /relativ es) professionals ar ound them to s et an ex ample and advise on
what “professionalism” looks like and m eans. And colleges oft en don’t provi de educati on in professionalism in
an office s etti ng: aside from business schools, many c olleges don’t prepare st udents—es pecially thos e in the
liberal arts—on meeting etiquette, business apps and technology, and other everyday professional practices.

Corporate onboar ding of new entry-lev el employ ees often excl udes the “basics” (meeting protoc ols, MS Office
skills, etc.). While c ompanies ty pically have s ome type of job-s pecific training programs, they often assume
thes e basic office skills are ther e and ar en’t able to see a candi date’s potential when lack of pr ofessi onal
skills/awareness is present. This can creat e a barrier for hi ghly qualified but m ore “ good” c andidates , especially
first-generati on graduates. Effective c ompanies will dev elop trai ning, coaching, and mentors hip pr ograms c an
help once on the job.

Best suggestions to manage millennials:

1. Create clear and fast-moving career tracks.
Create distinct career tracks with clear direction on how to advance to each level.
Restructure pr omotion and inc entiv e pr ograms that giv e smaller, m ore increm ental pr omotions and sal ary
raises, giving more consistent positive reinforcement and closer goals that make it more enticing to stay.

Create professional devel opment opportunities that help them adv anc e in thos e career tracks and build other
skills they need and want.

Create w ays young employ ees c an ex plore other car eer tr acks without leavi ng the com pany. Millennials and
Gen Z’s hav e a higher propensity for c hangi ng t heir minds and/or wanting different experienc es, s o consider
ways that enabl e employ ees to make lateral mov es or create rotational programs that allow inexperienc ed
professionals t o get experienc e in a variety of business capaciti es and are then more prepar ed to c hoose a

2. Along side comp etitive comp ensation p ackag es that i nclude CTC matching progr ams and compr ehensive
insurance offerings, provide benefits that allow them to hav e a s ens e of flexibility when it c omes to how they
Workings remotely, flex schedules/hours
Floating holidays–especially beneficial as the workforce becomes more and more diverse

Restructure PTO that gives employees more autonomy and responsibility for their work
Tuition reimbursement programs to increase retention and build leaders internally

3. Cr eate a strong comp an y culture: compan y cultur e is one of the strongest recruiti ng and retention t ools.
Go bey ond the flas hy tactics of having an on-site gam e room and fun c ompany outings and bring mor e focus to
the c ompany’s mission. Create and live/work by a s et of core v alues that repr esents your company’s mission.
People will be mor e engaged and mov e beyond just being their role or positi on when they feel c onnect ed to the

4. Ch allenge without over wor king. Boredom and str ess are equally c ommon as factors for driving millenni als
out of a workplac e. Allow inv olvement i n bi gger, higher-level projec ts and disc ussions to pr ovide meaningf ul
learning opportunities, and create goals that stretch their capabilities but are attainable.

In Ams tel veen, the Indian communi ty has influenced the local communi ty. The
hospital has an Indian help desk. In 2011, there was onl y Indian res taurant.
Toda y, there are at l east 12 to choose from.

Nea rby, the ci ty of Eindhoven has also seen the influence of the Indian
communi ty. A (predominantl y Indian) cri cket club opened ea rlier this yea r on
the local uni versi ty ca mpus ; New s mall businesses ha ve been opened up by
Indian families. Typical businesses invol ve food or clothes or dance lessons . Itis
sometimes di ffi cul t to find common ground on communi ty events and

For Indians, a safe landing in the Netherlands is not gua ranteed. There is

‘Very few companies help with this,’ said one father.

When asked about the main changes to Indians’ li ves here over the past ten

Every i mprovement has a flip side. As the communi ty gets bi gger, there is less

wi th all expa tria te communi ties, but here is a snapshot of one Indian
community i n Europe.


The small European na tion of Gibral ta r is bra cing itsel f for Brexi t. Gibral ta r is a
small peninsula on the coast of Spain with a population of a round 30,000
people. And it is pa rt of the UK a nd the European Union.It uses the Pound as its
currency, English as i ts fi rst language, and is a protected terri tory of the UK.
Odd, but true.

Gi bralta r has a contentious poli ti cal rela tionship wi th its big nei ghbour Spain.
Spain would like to take ownership of this rela ti vel y wealthy terri tory.
However, on a da y to da y basis, relations with Spain a re calm and goods and
servi ces flow easily across the s mall border. This is unlikel y to be changed by
Brexi t, when the UK and Gibral ta r will leave the European Union. Except in
one a spect – workers.

On a typi cal working da y, nea rl y 15,000 people, mos tl y Spanish but also British
li ving in Spain, cross the border between the countries to work in Gibralta r.
They include servi ce s taff working in tourism, a rchitects , and office workers
going to commercial companies that enjoy a ta x fa vourable s tatus in the small
country. There a re no passport checks for EU ci tizens , but this ma y change
wi th Brexi t. Dela ys in border checks will mean that workers ma y be la te for
work, or late to get home. It will also impa ct tourists , who will be deterred
from entering Gibraltar if there i s a l ong delay i n entering the country.

Ca n you ima gine a country where almos t half the workers commute dail y from
a nei ghbouring country? That is Gibraltar.


Russia. Despi te the recent era of capitalism in the country, mos t Russian
workers want to work for one of the bi g s ta te companies. In a survey, the top
fi ve mos t desi rable employers were all s ta te owned, including Gasprom and
Russian Railwa ys. In Russia, the s ta te’s sha re of gross domesti c product is
a round 70%.

Croa tia : The size of the grey economy in the country is indi cated by
Government fi gures whi ch identifies that 48% of 16-64 a ge ha ve not
regis tered themsel ves as unemployed and looking for work. Mos t of this
portion of the popula tion a re fi t, but offi cially economi call y ina cti ve. It is
thought that many a re working, but not pa ying ta xes. Croa tia is also the
European country wi th the most retired people who are still of working a ge.

Bulga ria: French offi cials arrested gang masters after identi fying 167
Bulga rian slaves employed by four winegrowing companies nea r the eastern
ci ty of Lyon. They signed contra cts in French, whi ch they do not unders tand,
and the gang masters took mos t of thei r salaries to pa y for food and
a ccommodation.


I liked the s tory from Eas tern Europe where labour shorta ges a re beginning
to worry some countries . In Poland, one textile manufacturer reported tha t
they had been unable to hi re a Polish national for the las t three yea rs, rel ying
on mi grant labour from Ukraine a nd Belarus to fill positions.

Fa ced wi th a declining popula tion - falling from 2.3 children in 1990 to 1.3
toda y - the Polish government is encoura ging pa rents to ha ve more children
wi th cash incenti ves , longer lea ve for the ma terni ty period, and better a ccess
to nurs ery places.

In Hunga ry, families ha ve subsidies for la rger ca rs wi th up to seven sea ts . The
condi tion is tha t they ha ve enough children to fill the ca r. In Russia, families
get a la rge cash bonus following the bi rth of a second child and any
s ubsequent children.

Edu-tech company Byju's to double workforce, hire up to 3,500 employees
Education technology company, Byju's, that has witnessed unprece dented growth in the past
couple of years is now planning to double up its workforce and hire 3,000-3,500 employees. This
recruitment drive is going to be one of the biggest by a private interne t company in recent years.
The hiring plans come on the heels of Byju's latest round of funding of $540-million that made it
the fifth-most valued company in the country. Valued at $3.6 billion, the company is ranked after
Flipkart, Paytm, Ola and Oyo. Byju's that is backed by Naspe rs and Tence nt has been g rowing at
100% for the last three years. The company has around 2 million annual subs cribers. The company
is also on track to touch Rs 1,400 crore in revenue in the year e nding March 2019. In such a case,
the hiring seems like a natural thing to do. Byju's is looking to hire 2,000 people for its sales and
operations team, while the rest will be recruite d for the content creation team. This is markedly
different from the hiring conducted by firms like Zomato and Swiggy, who recruit in such bulk
mostly for the delivery fleet. Byju's hiring plans are also, in fact, double of what Amazon has
planned for the country as per their website. Source :
