  • Companies represented
  • Some points raised  Leaders today need to spend quality time with their subordinates, but they are unable to do so because they are busy worrying about customers, competition, shareholders and so on.  Leaders leave the job of motivating and retaining employees to HR.  Today, HR is more transactional. It should rather be transformational.  HR is being pulled into business as 'Business Partners' but they should stick to doing what the HR role demands.  While there are many sound HR processes in place, the execution is lacking.  There is a need for emotional engagement, personal mentoring and financial incentives.  At the grassroots level, knowledge gap in the workforce has lead to a large demand-supply problem.  Fast-tracking growth and progress means leaders today are not in a position to mentor. They lack the experience and many a time view their subordinates as a threat and would rather not help them grow.  The need to sensitize Gen Y to work environment.  How do you sensitize Gen X on leading the Gen Y?
  • A few takeaways  Utilize strengths of your team and convert it to positive energy.  Practice 'feed forward' not feedback.  There is a need for a work environment which creates a feeling of boundary-less workforce.  Leadership is about leveraging an individual's strength and making his weakness irrelevant.  Leaders today don’t have to be subject matter experts, they just need to understand the strengths and capabilities of their workforce to get the job done.  Coach the grassroots level and not just the seniors in the system.  Remain focused on fundamental HR Principles, systems and processes.  Have quality individualized conversation with the Generation Y.  Leaders of today need to have the ability to capture the requirements of the eco system and deliver.  As parents individuals are able to groom their kids. In a similar way, leaders need to spend quality conversation time and give individual attention to employees to groom them. There is a need for emotional engagement, personal mentoring and financial incentives.  At a basic level, appreciation for a job well done goes a long way in motivating employees.
