Don’t forget the praise! What Millenials Need.

Posted by Kristin Arnold on November 14, 2007

I grew up watching Morley Shafer on 60 Minutes and consider myself to be a “trailing boomer”. Last night’s segment “The Millenials are Coming“ reported on the Millenials – those in their late teens to early twenties – in the workplace. Overall, a fairly balanced report and well worth watching. The last video clip emphasized the importance of “praise” even for coming to work and doing your job. After all, this is the “Fred Rogers generation” where everyone is special and everyone gets recognized for their participation.

Question: Do you let people (not just the Millenials) know how special they are? Do you recognize their participation?
