Want respect, millennials? Here’s how to earn it.

My newest column in The Globe & Mail‘s Leadership Lab series just published this morning.

“Want respect, millennials?  Here’s how to earn it”

offers six specific pieces of advice to millennials on how to earn greater respect amongst their boomer and Gen-Xer peers and managers.

My last two columns on the subject of millennials (Four things millennials hate about you in March and Don’t gripe about millennials at work, appreciate their talents instead in April) created quite the commotion, so if history is a predictor of the future, I suspect this one will cause some conversation as well.  As always, the column will take you no more than a few minutes to read, and I know that it will be relevant, but perhaps more importantly, I hope it will be thought-provoking.

I hope it goes without saying – I’d love your thoughts!  Please … pass the link along to your staff and colleagues.  I suspect that they’ll each have an opinion as well!  And if you’ve got a millennial or two in your work or personal life, I’d love to hear from them too.  Please comment below, or add your perspectives to the Globe’s website.  You can also tweet me at @mergespeaks.
