Entitled, lazy, unreliable. These are just a few of the words used to describe Millennials. It wasn’t too long ago consumer reports were being built about them and how they would acclimate to the professional world. Now, they’ll soon be leading the workforce. According to Forbes, 75% of the national labor force will be millennials by 2025. Despite the negative stereotypes, this generation is full of individuals already taking leadership positions at companies, starting their own businesses, and pursuing non-traditional means of supporting themselves and their families. In the GenWhy Leaders Podcast, we learn why leaders in this age group do what they do, what keeps them motivated, and how they have succeeded in this ever-more competitive marketplace.
