I have yet to give a speech or have a
meeting where somebody doesn't ask me

the Millenial question what's the
Millenial question apparently

Millennials as a generation which is a
group of people who were born

approximately 1984 and after are tough
to manage and they're accused of being

entitled and narcissistic
self-interested unfocused lazy but

entitled is the big one and and because
they confound leadership so much what's

happening as leaders are asking the
Millennials what do you want and

Millennials are saying we want to work
in a place with purpose love that we

want to make an impact you know whatever
that means we want free food and bean

bags and so somebody articulates some
sort of purpose there's lots of free

food and there's bean bags and yet for
some reason they are still not happy and

that's because you that they're missing
there's a there's a missing piece what

I've learned is that there I can break
it down into four pieces right there are

four four things four characteristics
one is parenting the other one is

third is impatience and the fourth is

environment the generation that we call
the Millennials too many of them grew up

subject to not my words failed parenting
strategies you know where for example

they were told that they were special
all the time they were told that they

have anything they want in life just cuz
they want it they were told some of them

got into honors classes not because they
deserved it but because their parents

complained and some of them got a is not
because they earned them but because the

teachers didn't want to deal with the
parents some kids got participation

medals you got a medal for coming in
last right which the science we know is

pretty clear which is it devalues the
medal and the reward for those who

actually work hard and that actually
makes the person who comes in last to

feel embarrassed because they know they
didn't deserve it so that makes me feel

right so you take this group of people

and they graduate school and they get a
job and they're thrust into an it into

the real world and in an instant they
find out they're not special

their moms can't get them a promotion
that you get nothing for coming in last

and by the way you can't just have it
because you want it right and in an

instant their entire self-image is
shattered and so you have an entire

generation that's growing up with lower
self-esteem than previous generations

the other problem to compound it is
we're growing up in a facebook Instagram

world in other words we're good at
putting filters on things we're good at

showing people that life is amazing even
though I'm depressed right and so

everybody sounds tough
and everybody sounds like they got it

all figure it out and the reality is
there's very little toughness and most

people don't have it figure it out and
so when the more senior people say what

we do they sound like this is what you
got it it and they have no clue so you

have an entire generation growing up
with lower self-esteem than previous

generations right through no fault of
their own through no fault of their own

right they were dealt a bad hand right
now let's add in technology we know that

engagement with social media and our
cell phones releases a chemical called

that's why when you get a text it feels

good all right so you know we've all had
it where you're feeling a little bit

down or feeling a bit lonely and so you
send out 10 texts to 10 friends you know

high high high high high because it
feels good when you get a response right

right it's why we count the likes it's
why we go back 10 times to see if and if

it's going if our mints and my Instagram
is growing slower I would I do something

wrong do they not like me anymore right
the trauma for young kids to be

unfriended right because we know when
you get it you get a hit of dopamine

which feels good it's why we like it
it's why we keep going back to it

dopamine is the exact same chemical that
makes us feel good when we smoke when we

drink and when we gamble in other words
it's highly highly addictive right we

have age restrictions on smoking
gambling and alcohol and we have no age

restrictions on social media and cell
phones which is the equivalent of

opening up the liquor cabinet and saying
to our teenagers hey by the way this

adolescence thing if it gets you down
but that's basically what's happening
that's basically what's happening right

that's basically what happened you have
an entire generation that has access to

an addictive numbing chemical called
dopamine through social media and

cellphones as they're going through the
high stress of adolescence why is this

almost every alcoholic discovered

alcohol when they were teenagers when
we're very very young the only approval

we need is the approval of our parents
and as we go through adolescence we make

this transition where we now need the
approval of our peers very frustrating

for our parents very important for us
that allows us to acculturate outside of

our immediate families into the broader
tribe right

it's a highly highly stressful and
anxious period of our lives and we're

supposed to learn to rely on our friends
some people quite by accident discover

alcohol and numbing effects of dopamine
to help them cope with the stresses and

anxieties of adolescence unfortunately
that becomes hardwired in their brains

and for the rest of their lives when
they suffer significant stress they will

not turn to a person they will turn to
the bottle social stress financial

stress career stress that's pretty much
the primary reasons why an alcoholic

drinks right what's happening is because
we're out allowing unfettered access to

these dopamine producing devices and
media basically it's becoming hardwired

and what we're seeing is as they grow
older they - many kids don't know how to

form deep meaningful relationships their
words not mine they will admit that many

of their friendships are superficial
they will admit that their friends that

they don't count on their friends they
don't rely on their friends they have

fun with their friends but they also
know that their friends will cancel out

them as something better comes along
deep meaningful relationships are not

there because they never practice the
skill set and worse they don't have the

coping mechanisms to deal with stress so
when significant stress starts to show

up in their lives they're not turning to
a person they're turning to a device

they're turning to social media they're
turning to these things which offer

temporary relief we know the science is
clear we know that people who spend more

time on Facebook so far higher rates of
depression than people spend less time

on Facebook write these things balanced
alcohol is not bad too much alcohol is

bad gambling is fun too much gambling is
dangerous right there's nothing wrong

with social media and cell phones it's
the imbalance right if you're

at dinner with your friends and you're
texting somebody who's not there that's

a problem that's an addiction if you're
sitting in a meeting with people you're

supposed to be listening to and speaking
and you put your phone on the table face

up or face down I don't care that sends
the subconscious message to the room

that you're not just you're just not
that important to me right now right

that's what happens and the fact that
you cannot put it away it's because you

are addicted right if you wake up and
you check your phone before you say good

morning to your girlfriend boyfriend or
spouse you have an addiction and like

all addiction in time it'll destroy
relationships it'll cost time and it'll

cost money and it'll make your life
worse right so you have a generation

growing up with lower self-esteem that
doesn't have the coping mechanisms to do

with stress stress right now you add in
the sense of impatience right they've

grown up in a world of instant
gratification you want to buy something

you go on Amazon it arrives the next day
you want to watch a movie log on and

watch a movie you don't check movie
times you want to watch a TV show

binge you don't even have to wait week
to week to week right I know people who

skip seasons just so they can binge at
the end of the season right Instagram if

occasion you want to go on a date you
don't even have to learn how to be like

you don't even have to learn and
practice that skill you don't have to be

the uncomfortable into assists is yes
when you mean nun says no when you mean

no but yes when you you have to swipe
right Bing I'm a stud right you don't

have to learn the social coping
mechanisms right everything you want you

can have instantaneously everything you
want instant gratification except job

satisfaction and strength of

there ain't no app for that they are
slow meandering uncomfortable messy

processes and so I keep meeting these
wonderful fantastic idealistic

hard-working smart kids they've just
graduated school they're in their

entry-level job I sit down with them
when I go how's it going they go I think

I'm gonna quit I'm like why they're like
I'm not making an impact I'm like you've

been here eight months it's as if
they're standing at the foot of a

mountain and they have this abstract
concept called impact that they want to

have in the world which is the summit
what they don't see is the mountain I

don't care if you go up the mountain
quickly or slowly but there's still a

mountain and so what this young
generation needs to learn is patience

that some things that really really
matter like love or job fulfillment joy

love of life self-confidence a skill set
any of these things all of these things

take time sometimes you can expedite
pieces of it but the overall journey is

arduous and long and difficult and if
you don't ask for help and learn that

skill set you will fall off the mountain
or you will the worst case scenario the

worst case scenario and we're already
seeing it the worst case scenario is

we're seeing increase in suicide rates
we're seeing an increase in this

generation we're seeing an increase in
accidental deaths due to drug overdoses

we're seeing more and more kids drop out
of school or take leaves of absence due

to depression unheard of these are this
is this is really bad the best case

scenario the bet those are all bad cases
right the best case scenario is you'll

have an entire population growing up and
going through life and just never really

finding joy it'll never really find deep
deep fulfillment

work or in life they'll just just walk
through life and it'll GE just it's fine

how's your job it's fine the same is
yesterday how's your relationship it's

fine like that's that's the best-case
scenario which leads me to the the

fourth point which is environment which
is we're taking this amazing group of

young fantastic kids who had just dealt
a bad hand it's no fault of their own

and we put them in corporate
environments that care more about the

numbers and they do about the kids they
care more about the short-term gains

than the long-term life of this young
human being we care more about the year

than the lifetime right and so we are
putting them in corporate environments

that aren't helping them build their
confidence that aren't helping them

learn the skills of cooperation that
aren't helping them overcome the

challenges of a digital world and
finding more balance that isn't helping

them overcome the need to have instant
gratification and teach them the joys

and impact and the fulfillment you get
from working hard over on something for

a long time that cannot be done in a
month or even in a year and so we're

thrusting to them them in corporate
environments and the worst part about it

is they think it's them they blame
themselves they can't they think it's

them who can't deal and so it makes it
all worse it's not I'm here to tell them

it's not them it's the corporations it's
the corporate environments it's the

total lack of good leadership in our
world today that is making them feel the

way they do they would dealt a bad hand
heads and I hate to say but it's the

company's responsibility sucks to be you
like we have no choice right this is

what we got and I wish that society and
their parents did a better job they

didn't so we're gonna we're getting them
in our companies and we now have to pick

up the slack we have to work extra hard
to figure out the ways that we build

their confidence we have to work extra
hard to find ways to teach them social

the social skills that they're missing
out on

there should be no cell phones and
conference rooms none zero and I don't

mean the kind of like sitting outside
waiting to text I mean like when you're

sitting and waiting for a meeting to
start nobody go this is what we all do

we all sit here and wait for the meeting
to start meaning starting okay when we

start the meeting no that's
how relationships are formed remember we

talked about it's the little things
relationships are formed this way we're

waiting for a meeting to start we go
how's your dad I heard he was in

hospital oh he's really good thanks for

he's actually at home though I'm really
glad it was really amazing I know it was

really scary for that's how you form
relationships hey did you ever get that

report on oh my god no I didn't I'll
help you out I totally uh can I help you

out with that
really that's how trust forms trust

doesn't form at an event in a day even
bad times don't form trust immediately

it's the slow steady consistency and we
have to create mechanisms where we allow

for those little innocuous interactions
to happen but when we allow cell phones

and companies from zwi just okay have
the meeting and then my favorite is like

when there's a cell phone there and you
go like this you go it rings and go I'm

not gonna answer that mr. magnanimous
you know

when you're out for dinner with your
friends like I I do this with my friends

when we're going out for dinner and
we're leaving together we'll leave our

cell phones at home who are we calling
maybe one of us will bring a phone in

case we need to call an uber or take a
picture of our meal I'm not I'm an

idealist but I'm not insane I mean it
looked really good

we'll take one phone and so it's like an
alcoholic the reason you take the

alcohol out of the house this week is
because we cannot trust our willpower

we're just not strong enough but when
you remove the temptation it actually

makes it a lot easier and so when you
just say don't check your phone people

literally will go like this and somebody
would go to the bathroom and what's the

first thing we do because I wouldn't
want to look around the restaurant for a

minute and a half you know but if you
don't have the phone you just kind of

enjoy the world and that's where ideas
happen the constant constant constant

gage Minh is not where you have
innovation and ideas ideas happen when

our minds wander and we go and you see
something uh remember they could do that

that's called innovation right but we're
taking away all those little moments

you should not and none of us none of us

should charge our phones by our beds we
should be charging our phones in the

living rooms right remove the temptation
you wake up in the middle of night cuz

you can't sleep you won't check your
phone which makes it worse but if it's

in the living room it's relaxed it's

oh yeah but it's my alarm clock by an
alarm clock

they cost eight dollars I'll buy you in
a while

right but the point is the point is as
we now in industry whether we like it or

not we don't get a choice we now have a
responsibility to make up the shortfall

and to help this amazing idealistic
fantastic generation build their

confidence learn patience learn the
social skills find a better balance

between life and technology because
quite frankly it's it's the right thing

to do thank you my pleasure coming on I
pledge well thanks for having me thank

you for coming
absolutely amazing where can they find

you so ironic isn't it well you can find
in social media when you're not in the

meeting so so so yeah I'm in all the
usual places

but um but I will tell you one thing so
I have a new book coming out in in

September this is it's it's a thinly
veiled plug but the what's made them

very happy but what's special about it
is I wanted to produce something that

that no digital format could reproduce
and so it's an illustrated quote book

it's it's beautifully illustrated I was
very sort of pushy about this that I

didn't want the illustrations done on a
computer they were done by hand

there's a song Aloe Blacc the singer the
grammy-nominated singer the book is

called together is better and gave me a
song that goes with it and it's the

music is at the back of the book and
it's actually the lyrics are in his

handwriting it's actually his
handwriting and and here's the best part

the book is scented we scented it with a
custom scent made by this amazing

company called 1229 and they designed
for me the scent of optimism so you

smell the pages and they smell like
optimism and the thing that I love about

this is I can't do that in any a book
format mm-hmm I wanted to create

something that you had to physically
engage with and it's designed to be

given as a gift the first page says -
from because I wanted it to be given as

a gift to someone you want to say thank
you for inspiring you or to give to

you wanted to inspire it was designed to

promote this physical interaction and
engaging with the real world so I'm

really proud of it it's incredible man
super unique yeah it's fun I hope it

does smashingly well as your other books
have and have given so much to people

and it's just really really been
incredible and what you shared with us

today meant honestly thank you
absolutely one appreciate it thank you

very much thank you
