Are you concerned about working with millennials?
Often senior executives in organizations (i.e. old folks like me) approach me and ask (almost desperately) about how they can motivate and engage these (complicated, they think) millennials or Generation Y.
I never quite understand these questions, because I believe 1) since humans exist there have been conflicts and misunderstandings between generations (in that regard millennials are not "special") and 2) motivation and engagement are highly individual. There is no "one size fits all" approach for a whole generation. (Or is everyone in your generation just like you?)
The Korn Ferry research below puts a different light on the Genration Y, and I am very glad to see that it is much more positive than many of the old folks would like to believe.

So, your new graduates and Millennial employees have arrived, and they’re bursting with energy and ideas. How can you keep that enthusiasm going – and keep them in your organisation? You can start by forgetting the myths about Millennials. New analysis of our employee engagement data shows that members of the generation, often maligned as being difficult to please, are actually one of employers’ most enthusiastic group of supporters. Compared to previous generations, Millennials are more positive about how their companies are responding to shifts in the business environment, advancement opportunities provided by employers and are more likely to recommend their organisations to others as good places to work.
