The Millennial Myth
Transforming Misunderstanding Into Workplace BreakthroughsBook - 2017
Despite the countless books written on the subject of managing millennials (most often authored by nonmillennials), no one has until now diagnosed the real issue of generational differences in the workplace: generations do not define themselves; their environment defines them. The traits attributed to millennials-entitled, lazy, disrespectful, and disloyal-are misguided assumptions that Kadakia argues are actually positive attributes that every business and industry should internalise. The 'faults' are in fact qualities of the evolved workplace and worker. Millennials are simply reflecting the fast-changing environment around them. Therefore, understanding millennials is not just about managing a generation; it is about seeing the future of business as changing at an exponential rate and making the necessary adjustments to remain vital and competitive. Kadakia's mindset shift details the ways in which businesses can evolve their thinking to include technological advances as well as support the technological thinker, otherwise known as the millennial.This book not only is a guide to managing millennials but can also influence the development of business as a whole.
