Simon Sinek is the author of the bestselling books, “Leaders Eat Last” and “How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action.”

He is also, as a turns out, a very compelling speaker. A clip from an episode of “Inside Quest” went viral, and for good reason. In the interview, Sinek lays out the four factors he attributes to the Millennial generation’s bad reputation. Those factors are:

  • Parenting (or “failed parenting strategies”), as he controversially puts it
  • Technology
  • Impatience
  • Environment

He asserts, “Millennials have been dealt a bad hand. … It’s through no fault of their own.”

At the end of the video, he puts out a very clear call-to-action, and surprisingly, it’s directed at the organizations that employ millennials.

There are many lenses through which to watch this video, but I encourage you to particularly look out for insights on these three: 1) how to manage your own millennial employees, 2) how you can help your members manage their millennial employees and 3) how to appeal to millennial members.
