Tags : 

Another meeting in the cycle, it’s weekly, monthly, or quarterly. You know the drill, it’s report outs, lectures, and stories of where everything comes up short. Change is what you want and change is part of the talk, but no one challenges the true status quo. You tell yourself it’s not the right time, the

3 Myths That Drive Millennials Crazy

Tags : 

Millennials aren’t alone; misunderstandings, disagreements, and stereotyping are problematic for nearly every workforce generation. Unfortunately the millennials seem to be the target of more bad press when compared with traditionals, boomers, gen x’ers, and even the emerging generation 9/11 population.

3 Reasons Millennials Are Leaders

Tags : 

Baby boomers (born 1946-1964) are often viewed as occupying a majority of the supervisory space in the workforce. While they enter their workplace every day brandishing a vast amount of experience, they are certainly not the only workplace leaders.

Kidding Me

Tags : 

You hear the news. You thought it could happen. You knew it. The surprise of, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” isn’t really such a surprise. You’re not a prophet, or if you are, you’ll know exactly when to buy that lottery ticket. When you believe you know the outcome, the outcome becomes more believable.
