Half of the criticisms leveled against Millennials are NOT due to their generational characteristics. Instead, they come from an unexpecTED source: the recently identified and little known life-stage of emerging adulthood. Not knowing the difference causes unnecessary problems for teams, families, and workplaces.

Haydn Shaw has researched and helped clients regarding generational differences for over twenty years. He is the author of Sticking Points: How to Get 4 Generations Working Together in the 12 Places They Come Apart and FranklinCovey’s bestselling workshops Leading Across Generations and Working Across Generations. He also writes on generations and leadership for the Huffington Post. TIME wrote, “Shaw is an expert on cultural differences at the office.” He has spoken to over 100,000 people and worked with more than 1,500 organizations.
