Everyone seems to have an opinion about the Millennial Generation – positive, negative, or otherwise. Regardless of your opinion, it is difficult to deny that there is a blossoming generation in our industry who grew up in a different environment than the preceding generations. These differences invariably lead to a generation with different perspectives, priorities, and practices. As leaders driving operational excellence within our organizations, it is imperative to understand, embrace, and leverage these differences to maximize our performance.

• Figuratively flatten the organizational chart by ensuring senior leaders remain engaged with this generation
