An organization’s achievements in creating an identity throughout the eyes of the world solely depend on the leader who leads the organization towards a great height of success. In addition to that, in this digital era of millennials entering the workforce, an up-to-date transformation is indeed necessary for a bright future. Artistic skills are known to stimulate leaders’ and followers’ performance and enhance their cognitive skills to an outstanding level. Numerous researchers have studied on the millennials’ preference over leadership styles but none were conducted on their preference over artistic skills to be incorporated into the leadership style. In the conjunction to this, the researcher analyzed further on the preference of the millennials on the artistic skills, leadership characteristics and leadership styles to reshape the workforce. To carry forward this research, mix method of qualitative and quantitative were employed through in depth interview with a leader from Malaysian Institute of Management (MIM) and structured questionnaires targeted to all the leaders in the preliminary study. Then, based on that, the second structured questionnaires were distributed to the millennials to conclude the study. Thus, there are three aspects to be incorporated into transformational and transactional leadership respectively which are artistic skills, traits and behaviours. These aspects are proven to enhance the leadership styles to a more successful implementation. The final outcome of the study is a conceptual framework as a guideline to be implemented by leaders in organizations.
