We. Are. ALL:

Millennials.

Our Workforce is Filled with the Last Children of the 20th Century

Baby Boomers, GenX, and Generation Y (more commonly labeled “millennials) make up the vast majority of our workforce today.

These generations perceive divisions that range from culture to motivation. These misconceptions have held individuals, and entire organizations, back. The corrosive dismissal of shared values has cost time, energy, and profits.

To succeed together, our entire workforce needs to recognize, and embrace, our common heritage as today’s Millennials.

“Millennial” is misused as a shorthand for young

The Millennial label is often used to dismiss entire swaths of our population as irresponsible, self-obsessed and overly sensitive.

The misuse of the term keeps individuals from taking risks, creates tension in the workplace, and robs people of ALL generations of opportunities to excel.

In his groundbreaking TEDxWilmington Talk, "Embrace Your Inner Millennial," Brandon Blackburn-Dwyer demonstrates the negative myths associated with the term Millennial are wrong, because we are ALL Millennials.

Literally, everyone alive today is a Millennial

The ideals held by Millennials (what Brandon refers to as Millennialism) were founded by the Baby Boomers, refined by GenX, and lived by GenY (the original name for the people born into the millennial age range).

These millennial ideals unite the last children of the 20th century, and provide the basis for success in the 21st century, if people recognize and build from them.

Baby Boomers and GenX and GenY are part of millennials

You can Embrace Your Inner Millennial to find personal empowerment and organizational success.

Do you allow others to define your potential? Dismiss opportunities as “too millennial” or “too traditional”?  You have a world or opportunity. Move beyond your barriers, embrace your inner millennial, and build the future you’ve always wanted.

How This Talk Brings Positive Change

The commonalities that bind our three work-dominant generations today are powerful.

Understanding this common ground means your leaders relate to their staff better, your teams are more cohesive, and your organization can speak to their target markets more effectively.

Why This Information is Important Today

The generation known as millennials has aged out of the stereotypes, yet our markets, organizations, and communities have not kept up.

If you want to recruit or target Generation Y (“Millennials”), then you need to understand what drives them today.

To engage your broader workforce, you must show them their shared values, and illuminate the opportunities available to each of them in the 21st century.

Success in the 21st Century

Your staff needs common ground to excel.

This must include inspiring your older workers to find their passion and drive through understanding the changes they brought into our world, and how to capitalize on those changes. Plus, engaging younger workers through the values they share with their peers across the generations.

In short, you must ensuring everyone celebrates the combined victories brought about by the last children of the 20th century, and builds towards success in the 21st century as today’s millennials.

Who are millennials? How many Baby Boomers are in the workforce today?
