Previous Generation Y leadership studies were focused on the Caucasian and English-speaking population. The purpose of this qualitative, modified van Kaam phenomenological study was to explore the leadership dimensions preferred by Generation Y Mexican Americans. In this study, 9 women and 11 men who were born between 1983 and 1987 were interviewed in English or Spanish. The 20 Generation Y Mexican American interviewees suggest that leaders should (a) be skilled communicators; (b) be educated and competent in their leadership roles; (c) lead by example; and (d) be respectful and friendly. In addition, Generation Y Mexican Americans in this study offer that leaders should remain sensitive to stereotyping and discriminatory practices that may appear to be age-related and ethnicity-centered.
