Millennials. Entitled. Spoiled. Non-competitive. Lack of loyalty. Unstructured. Job-hoppers.
Those descriptive words that society tosses around about millennials just flickered through your head, admit it.
There’s certainly no argument that millennials – 80 million Americans born between 1980 and 2000 – may present a management challenge, especially in a sales setting where structure and process are critical tools to keeping revenue on track and goals in sight. But harness the positive traits that millennials possess and you’ve got star power on your hands.
Millennials aren’t afraid to shake the status quo. They come up with creative and interesting solutions to issues. They love to learn. They want a solid work/life balance. They are adventurous and free-spirited. They don’t burn for material rewards. They want experiences.
