Assignment Total Additional comments: Comments: May. 1 NEXTJEN, CORPORATION LEADERSHIP AUDIT – MAY 2017 AUDIT GOALS: The purpose of this project is to formulate ways and means of developing leadership skills in millennials with an aim of increasing their participation in leadership at NextJen Corporation. The project proposes a way of breaking away from this trend in order to give room for modern ways of management in NextJen Corporation, promote positive outcomes and ensure that this group reaches its potential in leadership. AUDIT SCORE LEGEND: A MINIMAL IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE B SOME IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE C MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE FINDINGS: 1. Mentoring Method. Audit Score A Millennials are information seekers thus having a mentor in this group helps the individual gain knowledge through an experienced associate. Having one-on-one talks and guiding the individual is beneficial for our future leaders in Next Jen Corporation. My finding is ideal for the millennials, the company for they foster May. 1 NEXTJEN, CORPORATION the mentoring method. Any potential leader or manager gets a mentor where they shadow the individual, learn, and seeks guidance even after he or she takes on a leadership role. 2. Applying a comprehensive learning approach. Audit Score B Learning workshops such as coaching, a workshop, or seminar allow the millennial to have a continuous learning in their given field. Leadership workshops that enable the individual to grow and find new approaches to leadership. Although, the mentoring method is great we need follow-up sessions to ensure that these associates are educated. This area needs improvement. 3. Apply Fielder’s Contingency Model- or a different leadership assessment. Audit Score C Using this theory can help establish if the millennial is primarily task accomplishment motivated or maintaining relationships. To determine a millennials leadership style, it does not have to be on this contingency model but any leadership assessment. My finding shows that this company does not give out a leadership assessment. Recommendation to incorporate an assessment. 4. .360-degree Feedback. Audit Score Ba. The 360 Feedback is designed to help provide insight into the skills and behaviors desired in the organization or leadership development. This tool will assist the individual to understand his or her weaknesses and help focus on the areas of improvement. The audit was a B- the business provides feedback, but needs to do it frequently, quarterly. This feedback mechanism provides the millennials May. 1 NEXTJEN, CORPORATION feedback which allows them to grow as leaders if he or she follows the given feedback. 5. Leverage on Networking Audit Score CMillennials often rely on their peers and social networks to provide essential information and guidance on critical issues and function at their place of work. The management at Nexgen should make it a priority to leverage on social networking by setting social platforms to share real-time information and allow flexibility (Brack, 2012). It is also a way of coaching millennials on the use of diplomacy and solving problems without having to spend time moving from one point to another.

This project highly recommends that you take the bold step to ensure that the top organ of the company is aware of the benefits of promoting millennial leadership.
