Despite the countless books written on the subject of managing millennials (most often authored by non-millennials), no one has until now diagnosed the real issue of generational differences in the workplace: generations do not define themselves, their environment defines them.
The four main traits - entitled, lazy, disrespectful, and disloyal - are misguided assumptions made about millennials that Kadakia argues are actually positive attributes that every business and industry should internalize. The four "faults" are in fact four qualities of the evolved workplace and worker. Millennials are simply reflecting the fast-changing environment around them. Therefore, understanding millennials is not just about managing a generation, it is about seeing the future of business as changing at an exponential rate and making the necessary adjustments to remain vital and competitive.
Kadakia's mindset shift details the ways in which business can evolve their thinking to include technological advances as well as supporting the technological thinker, otherwise known as the Millennial. This book is not only a guide to managing millennials, but can also influence the development of business as a whole.
