Do you see Millennials as "digital natives," comfortable with technology, short on loyalty to their employers, devoted to their favorite causes, and enamored of ping-pong? If so, you're wrong. You may be doing them a disservice, and yourself as well, because you can't effectively manage people you don't understand.
That advice comes from Jessica Kriegel, author of Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit from Ditching Generational Stereotypes. She's also a Millennial herself. As Kriegel points out, believing that Millennials are job-hoppers and that Baby Boomers can't work a smartphone is not all that different from believing that Jewish people are good with money and that women can't handle math.
