The Millennial Myth: Transforming Misunderstanding into Workplace Breakthroughs

"As co-founders of Culture of Good, Inc., which inspires more than 3,000 millennial employees to do meaningful work, we found The Millennial Myth to be spot on. Not only has Crystal helped to dispel myths that simply hold little truth about the next generation of leader, she has also provided in extensive detail the way forward for those leading them. This book is a must-read for those who expect to have success in leading the next generation of employees."

-- Scott Moorehead and Ryan McCarty, Co-Founders Culture of Good, Inc.

The Book

You will learn how the advent of digital technology is the crucial root cause of many Millennial behaviors. But the book doesn’t stop there – it offers a guide for what our traditional workplace needs to do to attract, engage, and retain modern talent.
