All Kinds of News for May 10, 2017
Every generation is criticized for being entitled, lazy, and unmotivated and millennials are no exception. Andrew Taylor, Executive Director of Pure Life Adventure, presented on his research and experiences with millennials at the Wilderness Therapy Symposium in Asheville, NC on April 6, 2017. His presentation focused on previous generations and how their world views were affected by the political, economic, and social factors of their time. When utilizing that lens, Millennials are no different from previous generations.
The younger generations are always different and that makes older generations uncomfortable, however, they are no different in that they also are shaped by their environment. Millennials are our clients and our employees, we must understand them in order to help them.
