The M-factor

The Millennial generation has rapidly entered the workforce in greater numbers, but its introduction to the workplace has been anything but seamless. Marked by attentive, helicopter parents, schools that propagate high self-esteem, and an ingrained comfort with/dependency on technology, the Millennials are tarred as flighty, entitled, self-involved dilettantes, but Lancaster and Stillman encourage managers not to judge but to coach and tap into such Millennial talents as speed, social networking, and collaboration.

“Lively stories illustrate the generation gap and general communication failures between ‘Traditionalists,’ ‘Boomers,’ ‘Generation X-ers,’ and ‘Millennials….’ [The authors’] thorough analysis of how various generations can complement each other makes a strong case for the value of younger people in the workplace.” (—Publishers Weekly )
