Abstract [en]

The study shows that today's leaders find that generation Y is more adaptable and in need of more feedback unlike previous generations. We have also come to the conclusion that today's leaders need decentralized approaches to generation Y. The majority of leaders suggest that generation Y questions, advances and demands leadership, which also has a positive impact on the organization in the long run. Today's leaders find it challenging to handle all the different individuals and generations present in the labor market today. For example, there are differences in how much freedom employees want, the degree of maturity among employees varies and leaders have a fear that generation Y will leave the workplace if they fail to meet their needs. We can thus see a pattern of how today's leaders adapt coaching, leadership, communication, and also skills development across different individuals rather than generations.

Abstract [sv]

Studien visar att dagens ledare upplever att generation Y är mer förändringsbenägna samt i behov av mer feedback till skillnad från tidigare generationer. Vi har även kommit fram till att dagens ledare behöver ha ett decentraliserat förhållningssätt gentemot generation Y. Majoriteten av ledarna antyder att generation Y ifrågasätter, går snabbt framåt samt ställer krav på ledarna vilket också har en positiv inverkan på organisationen på lång sikt. Dagens ledare upplever att det är en utmaning i att hantera alla olika individer och generationer som finns på arbetsmarknaden idag. Det framgår exempelvis skillnader i hur stor frihet medarbetarna vill ha, att graden av mognad bland medarbetare varierar och att ledarna har en rädsla för att generation Y ska lämna arbetsplatsen om de inte lyckas möta deras behov. Vi kan alltså se ett mönster i hur dagens ledare anpassar coaching, ledarskapet, kommunikationen och även kompetensutveckling utefter olika individer snarare än utefter generationer.
