Baby boomers and Gen X have intensified millennial stereotypes for nearly 20 years! Millennials have taken a beating over the years and been given quite the reputation, but it’s time for their comeback!
Inspiration, development, and fulfillment inspire every generation in the workplace including millennials.
Emotional needs are universal regardless of what generation you belong to. Only the biases are different, and biases originate from our upbringing, experiences, and our environment. Don’t believe you have biases? Regardless of your generation, boomers, Xers, and millennials can learn from this book on how to uncover deeply rooted biases to build stronger relationships.
I’ll give millennials this – the environment they were born into is not the same as other generations. Still, the millennial stereotypes of entitlement, disengagement, selfishness, and tech-superiority disturb teams and employees even now. Where did the stereotypes come from, and what can we do to change them? The answers are obvious and simple, but bridging the perception gap may not be.
This book explains why there’s no such thing as managing millennials. We manage tasks; we lead people. Leaders must understand and accept that people of all generations want to feel respected, connected, and to know that they matter. This book gives parents, friends, coworkers, and leaders tools to uncover those themes in the workforce, as well as best practices, tools, and tips for management!
