Abstract

Purpose

Everyone is different and without making generalizations, millennials have been shown to behave differently to other generations. As coaches and organizational psychologists, it’s important to appreciate how these differences translate in a professional context, in order to get the most from them when investing in coaching programs.

Design/methodology/approach

The article offers insights based on our own experience of coaching millennials, sharing ten important characteristics to bear in mind.

Findings

As extensive research shows, there are some subtle intergenerational differences evident in the millennial demographic but they do not confirm to popular stereotypes. Coaches can draw on these insights to create powerful interventions that enable clients to engage and maximize the value of organizational talent across the generations.

Originality/value

A group of Aziz Corporate's most experienced coaches share their own personal insights gained whilst working with millennial coaches.
