There are some traits that millennials and Gen Z seem to share. Firstly, a love of adventure and a quest for new experiences. Secondly, a desire to develop and grow. For Gen Z especially, there’s an unending search for the truth, a draw towards dialogue and a penchant for radical inclusion. Both generations also seem excited by entrepreneurship, and the hype of ‘the hustle’.
That’s why spending a ‘gap year’ studying general management principles could lay an excellent foundation in entrepreneurial – and leadership – capabilities. Basically, you learn something about everything! It’s the first step to signalling to the business world that you’re willing to take on a leadership role and have the requisite understanding of yourself to lead others. The strategy, systems, and people-management abilities it gives you also set you up soundly to start thinking of how you could start your own savvy side hustle or small business.
