As a parent of two “millennials” myself, I am well acquainted with their desire to do something meaningful with their lives and their impatience with older adults who occupy leadership positions and are reluctant to hand over the reins to a new generation of leaders who are ready and capable of accepting responsibility for creating a better future.
