Discussion guide from my conversation with Mackenzie Kyle:
1. Understanding how to work with Millenials – are they really ‘different’?
2. Why starting a conversation with a Millenial with “when I was your age…” is rarely helpful.
3. Addressing the top complaints millenials have about their workplace.
4. Cross generational differences and how this can create conflict in the workplace.
5. How to create alignment between personal and team/organizational goals.
6. Understanding the reasons why people do what they do, and some simple, practical tools that can help us (and them) understand why, and how to work with this.
