The #1 challenge facing leaders today is one of “human capital.”
A couple of years ago, I attended in Dallas hosted by Jeffrey Hayzlett of Bloomberg TV The C-Suite I sat down and interviewed many top level “C” Suite individuals and ask them about their challenges, which of course included “how do you keep top talent?”

During my time there I got to interview 3 outstanding Millennial men who are doing extraordinary things. The interview is up on iTunes on my Leadership and Loyalty Tips for Executives podcast Click here:http://dovbaron.podomatic.com/entry/2014-05-16T17_36_10-07_00
Without watching the interview I can tell you is this; if you are looking to tighten your grip and control these Millennials, you are going the way of the dinosaur.
This year ‘Deloitte surveyed nearly 7,700 Millennials from 29 countries during September and October 2015 to learn more about Millennials’ values and ambitions, drivers of job satisfaction, and their increasing representation in senior management teams.'
