  1. I’m wondering whether millenials are looking for feedback or just praise for merely showing up? The article notes they are “accustomed to receiving regular feedback growing up at home, in school and during extracurricular activities,” but that feedback consisted largely of participation trophies, of graduation ceremonies marking their advance from pre-K to K to 1st grade, etc., of adults telling them how they are the future, how they are the best and brightest.

    Don’t get me wrong. I am all in favor of praising results or effort and specifically identifying what the person did that was worthy of note, but the real challenge to our character is whether we are willing to do our best, to do the right thing, even if nobody notices.

  3. I believe that feedback is important – both positive and negative, but as noted by the author below, it is important to coach the millennials in a way where they make their own judgement on doing what is right and doing the right thing -even with no recognition or supervision.
