I’ve just started a new role after my studies and I’m being told I need to “take more responsibility” at work. I’m willing to work hard to succeed in this role, but I really don’t know what I need to do differently.
It’s surprisingly tricky for leaders to describe what they need people to do. The need for clarity on what to do and how to do it is one area where there is good evidence about the difference between Millennials and other generations. “Taking more responsibility” can be code for three different things.
