One Thing's For Sure About 2018

If you didn't realize it, 2018 will look very different than today. Well of course you say.

In the next 7 years, leadership transition will be thrust upon us. The Boomers drop from 55% to 28% while the Millenials expand from 11% to 48% [from Rex Miller]. Not only is this a sheer numbers play, this is also a leadership mindset move. If you didn't know, Millenials think very differently than Boomers and that kind of change in thinking has lots of implications for all organizations.

The issue is not: can they lead us. The issue might be: will you start trusting them now.
