(GYSS #94): Five Steps To Real Leadership w/ Tamara Thorpe
“Millennials see position and authority as fluid.”
Tamara Thorpe is the Millennials Mentor. She creates exceptional leadership training programs for Millennial leaders, and helps businesses understand and leverage a multi-generational workforce. She also helps entrepreneurs and growing businesses create engaged and high performing teams, and sustainable learning organizations. She shares with us her love for Millennials, leadership, and life.
I wanted to get Tamara back on the show because she’s a Millennial expert and has some really interesting ideas regarding Millennial leadership. I first had Tamara on the show in November of 2014. Since then, she’s been up to some BIG things. We talk about why Tamara believes ageism is still one of the most tolerable forms of discrimination, why (and how) Millennials are different than other generations, and why Millennials want to lead differently than other generations. Tamara also shares her five steps for real leadership!
The GenY Success Show (Episode 8): Tamara Thorpe – Finding Great Mentors, Becoming A Great Leader, Effective Goal Setting
Tamara Thorpe helps equip millennials with the tools to succeed as a leader in today’s world. She loves helping young adults build a better version of themselves to realize their untapped potential. I dug in with Tamara to get her insight on finding mentors. She also talks about why it’s important to have a mentor to help you get ahead in your career. If you’re wondering how to show a potential mentor you’re worth their time, we answer that question for you in this episode.
We also dig into leadership and why it’s more than just a title: it’s a mindset and a lifestyle. You don’t have to be a “boss” to be a great leader. Tamara also helps millennials set life goals and, more importantly, helps them to achieve their goals. We talk about creative ways to hold yourself accountable to your goals to achieve as many of them as possible.
