Friday Quote: Challenges Working With Senior Managers

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the research we’ve been doing with the Millennial generation. We asked a group of millennials to describe their biggest challenges working with senior management in their organizations, and this quote is priceless:

My biggest challenges have been trying to make them understand how knowledgeable and quick to learn I am.

Trying to understand their work styles and knowledge levels is one thing, but trying to teach them is like trying to make a 2 year old take a nap. They will resist and simply make the younger individuals fix it or do it for them. I’m trying to be patient, but our voices aren’t heard.
