Millennials. A single word can conjure up varying descriptions and emotions. Some of the stereotypes about this generation are true, yet others are not. Instead of sitting here and complaining about the shortcomings of this group, I prefer to point out how to lead them effectively.

In this episode the following points will be discussed:

  • Why teaching isn’t about being the “best in your field
  • How body language is a warning sign for motivation
  • The two types of vision that need to align
  • What Baby Boomers and Millennials have in common

Does this change your thoughts on Millennials? What adjustments will you make dealing with Millennials going forward?
