Simon Sinek on Millennials in the Workplace

When it comes to the psychology of leadership and creativity there are few people who I find more insightful and inspiring than Simon Sinek. He gained fame after his ‘Start with Why‘ TED talk that went viral and has really reshaped the conversation around creativity at pretty much every level of the agency and corporate world. I recently came across a new video of his called ‘Millennials in the Workplace’ that is easily the best collection of insights and observations I’ve heard

I recently came across a new video of his called ‘Millennials in the Workplace’ that is easily the best collection of insights and observations I’ve heard around this new generation. They are widely discussed, catered to and even vilified for the way they behave and approach life. It is something I have personally struggled with as I see that they approach creativity, leadership and their careers in vastly different ways than I have ever seen before and I see them struggling to find success because of those things. This video as a really insightful look at why they are the way they are and maps out why they struggle with their transition into the corporate world and what we can do to help them.
