Risk Taking Leadership The CEO Magazine
Emma Sinclair

What are the skills, tendencies and inclinations that separate a good business person from a true leader? My short answer? An appetite for risk.

I IPO-d my company at 29, the youngest person in the United Kingdom to have done so. I often wonder what it is about me that gave me the confidence to contemplate doing that; the innocence of youth not explanation enough for the path I decided to tread.

In the past three weeks, I have facilitated several meetings within organizations both large and small in which I helped teams create plans to meet their goals. One common and recurring theme I hear is the “problem with management” or “the leaders don’t understand what we’re dealing with”. When these comments are made, the leaders aren’t in the room. And in my own experience, even if they were, they might not be responsive to this criticism about their lack of commitment and understanding.

Companies and organizations in the US and around the world are currently facing a challenge in finding ways to motivate and lead a group called “The Millennials.” There are an estimated 80 million young people between the ages of 18-35, more specific, those born from 1980-2000 (some groups use different years). They will make up approximately 35% of the American workforce by 2014.
