Special Edition 30b – An Interview with Lynne Lancaster and David Stillman, authors of The M-Factor, part 2 of 2 examines how to successfully integrate Millennials into the workforce from the perspectives of the Traditionalists, Boomers, and Gen Xers already there and the incoming Millennials themselves. During our discussion, Lynne Lancaster and David Stillman, authors of The M-Factor: How the Millennial Generation Is Rocking the Workplace and co-Founders and Partners of BridgeWorks, shares with us their insights and illustrative examples regarding:
- why Millennials appear to have a sense of entitlement and how it is different than that of other generations
- how managers should handle Millennial parents who want to be involved in every aspect of their children’s workplace activities
- what managers can do to harness the tech savviness and speed of Millennials to their business’s benefit
- how to deal with Traditionals, Boomers, and Gen Xers who feel they are forfeiting their value to the organization and job security when tasked with sharing hard earned knowledge with Millennials
- actions Millennials should take to better integrate with their organization
