Back in 2008 I wrote an article in response to Barak Obama being elected as the 44th president of the United States, or as I like to refer to it; CEO of USA Inc. Eight years later “Yes We Can” likely has a whole different meaning for many folks on both the left and the right. I’ve reworked this article in context of where we are today and how different it seems things are, yet when we look below the surface, so much remains the same.
Getting Millennials to Stick can feel like trying to keep the attention of a 3-year-old. “I’m bored, let play something else,” said the 3-year-old. “I’m bored, I’m going to work somewhere else,” said the 23-year-old.
Today we have an ever-increasing number of devices by which we can communicate. Yet our communication skills and our ability to truly connect appear to be disappearing faster than the polar ice caps.
As strange as it may seen, “Do You Speak Boomer or Millennial?” Is a reasonable question in today’s Leadership world:
I was chatting with someone recently about the focus of my new book “Fiercely Loyal” when that person asked me, “Why would Millennials listen to you? You’re a Boomer.”
