If I had a dime for every time I heard a negative stereotype used to describe my generation, Generation Y, I’d be a rich gal. I’d also be a very cranky gal because I truly dislike how inaccurate so many of these stereotypes directed at Millennials are. Well, in this episode, I’m joined by several brilliant Millennial experts, authors, employers, and inter-generational team building experts to help shed light on some of the negative stereotypes associated with Gen Y. My guests share their experiences and thoughts on why this generation is so misunderstood and how we can work with older generations to achieve organizational goals together.
