I don’t know about you but I am growing tired of talk of the millenials. Not the millenials, you understand. I find them generally quite engaging, energetic, anxious to learn.
I am tired of all of the articles and blather about how they are different (but of course not one from the other) and need special care and attention. And of course intergenerational issues need attention (this has never happened before?) And blah, blah, blah. My experience suggests that millenials are little different from when I started out as a department head at 21 supervising four people, including the incumbent who was 64 – talk about inexperience meeting intergenerational issues.
Now here is an article that makes sense. Every employer should read it. Every supervisor/coach/mentor to millenials should pass it on.
It gives credit. It is respectful. Yet is offers solid advice. It accounts for change and difference.
