It’s happening. We’re not going to have to worry about managing Millennials any more. They are already the largest cohort in the workforce and in the blink of an eye there will be more of them managing Baby Boomers than there will be Baby Boomers managing them. Instead of worrying about managing them, we get to worry about working for them.
The prescription is the same — just in reverse. Three years ago I wrote about Trying to Manage Millennials? Give Up and Lead Them Instead. I suggested they cannot be managed the way other generations have been managed.
