Thanksgiving – a time for gratefulness.How can I say thanks? I am overwhelmingly grateful for the abundant opportunities to join with colleagues in building momentum for the important message in Millennials Matter. Yes, Millennials do indeed matter. AND, so do you and your leadership.
“I just love my new boss. He really cares about me!”When I asked this Next-Gen leader from a high-tech industry how he knows this, he said, “Well, the other day, he spent twenty-five minutes talking about my goals and dreams. Then, he asked what he could do to help me achieve those goals. He really cares!”He went on to say how he loves the company and that he's recruiting all of his friends to work with him.Now, this is engagement!How engaged are the people on your team?Are you a transformational leader?
We often accuse Millennials of being addicted to their technology, don't we?Personal confession: I’m guilty too!”Here's me with my family having "family time" at the Minnesota State Fair. Hilarious, huh? Well, actually it's a bit embarrassing that someone caught this on camera.What about you?
In our Millennial Survey, one of the participants directed me to her favorite domino video – you may have seen it before. A physicist demonstrates how a domino can knock over another domino one and a half times its size. He continues to explain that, in only 29 moves, a micro-sized domino that’s only five millimeters high can eventually knock down a domino the size of the Empire State Building. Amazing, isn’t it?
