What Are Millennials?
Millennials aren't what you think
"What's wrong with millennials?" is a common starting point for discussion, whether it's about their work habits, their (overstated) love of job-hopping or their ability to handle feedback.

In this Special Report, we posit that millennials aren't all that different from past up-and-coming generations. But we go further, talking with two experts about how leaders can take the initiative -- engaging and developing the millennials who work for them. Read on for insights, including those of "Radical Candor" author Kim Scott on the difficulties of feedback, and Dennis C. Miller, a longtime health care executive, on the importance of mentoring.

Millennials And Feedback
How to practice radical candor with millennials -- or anyone
Most people, not just millennials, are uncomfortable with giving and receiving feedback, says Kim Scott, author of "Radical Candor." She shares secrets for overcoming the discomfort of feedback whether you're an older boss or a millennial looking to engage with your boss. "It's your obligation as a leader to give them that feedback. And it's your obligation not only to the person who wants to grow -- you want them to grow, too, because growing means better work," she says.

Why Mentoring Matters With Millennials
How to make mentoring work
Mentors form a critical support system for success, says longtime executive and adviser Dennis C. Miller, and luckily most people are flattered to be asked, provided you respect their time and offer a structure to the relationship. Miller had mentors, as does almost everyone, and it's up to leaders to give back -- just as it's up to millennials to make the outreach.
