Episode #87 - Millennials Aren’t Coming, They are Already Here

Guest: Jason Dorsey, President, The Center for Generational Kinetics

It’s easy for older generations to forget that Millennials are not as young as they think they are, with some already in their 40s with established careers in management and leadership roles. Since it’s no secret that Millennials do things differently than their Baby Boomer and Gen X predecessors, organizational changes must happen now as this next generation continues to take charge. PMMI Executive Leadership Conference speaker Jason Dorsey, president of The Center for Generational Kinetics, joins UnPACKed with PMMI to help explain some generational myths and uncover the hidden behavioral drivers of each age group.
