As part of my research for Millennials Matter I conducted a survey with leaders from all walks of life.

How concerned are you with transitioning key roles in your business to your Millennial Leader?
With 10,000 baby boomers retiring per day, we need to muster all our resources to build the Millennial Leaders into strong, high-character leaders now.

What is two-way mentoring? It’s an informal, collaborative willingness to learn from each other in order to grow one’s personal and professional capacity to lead wisely.
