Confucianism, Leadership, Millennials, Character Building


The problems to be discussed in this research are based on the phenomenon of searching for millennial leadership character education in Indonesia. In recent years, Western theories have dominated the trend of studying leadership and are rarely derived from Eastern wisdom. These influenced leadership education taught in character education in the education curriculum. Meanwhile, the East has Confucianism, a leadership concept called Jun Zi. Jun Zi explained how a person has the virtue of acting as a leader for himself and others. The research method used was the interview method, with the main object of discussion obtained from a comparative analysis of Confucian literature. The limitation of this study is the need for more Confucian wisdom texts in Indonesian, so to facilitate the objectives of this study, it is necessary to develop studies in the original language texts of these teachings. Subsequent research described Jun Zi's suitability with the needs of leadership character education in Indonesia, especially for millennials who have experienced various choices of new leadership models.
