As an intercultural learning and development consultant at Language & Culture Worldwide (LCW), I work with global leaders to offer cross-cultural training solutions that help organizations develop global acumen and engage team members all over the world. I recently found myself routinely spending a significant amount of time debunking stereotypes about Gen-Y that would arise during my training sessions.
To help my clients better understand our misunderstood generation, I set out to learn more about Millennials across the globe. The similarities and differences among our global counterparts are amazing! Read all about them in my recently published article in HR Digest on page 4!
