"Six Steps For Grooming Millennials"

Here are six tips on how to be successful in your first job!

1. Don't Be On Time - Be Early

That applies for getting to work, arriving at events, even meeting colleagues for lunch. The secret for being on time: schedule when you have to leave rather than the time you have to be somewhere.

2. Be Proactive Rather Than Reactive

Recommend to your Millennials that they meet one new person a day. By taking the initiative to do so, others will see them as interesting when they are sincerely interested in others.

3. Be Nice To Everyone

Encourage your new hires to treat the building security guards, receptionists, custodian and cafeteria team with the same respect they do your organization's higher-ups.

4. Remain Positive

No, Not, Can't, Won't, Shouldn't, Couldn't, Wouldn't....Strongly recommend that your Millennials tell others what they "can do" rather than what they "cannot do." Let them know that those who succeed find solutions, rather than making excuses, for even the most challenging situations.

5. Be Prepared
When invited to a meeting, encourage your Millennials to ask, "What may I do to prepare for the meeting?" Let them know that this question will demonstrate to their managers that they want to be active participants rather than merely warming a seat.

6. Park Your Smartphones
People first and then technology. Emphasize to your new hires that smartphones should be on vibrate and out of sight when they are in meetings. The action of making even the slightest eye contact with their smartphone appendage may be misinterpreted as being disinterested in what the person speaking with them has to say.
