“Trading Lessons with the Next Generation”
We’ve all heard and read about the “Millennials.” They’re called the “new breed of worker,” among other things, and often are described in the most unflattering terms. Many of us “mature” professionals believe there’s a lot we could teach them, if they were willing to learn from us. The truth is, there are lessons we can learn from them as well.
