Millennials get a bad rap, but it’s not entirely their fault, says leadership consultant Simon Sinek, who explains the factors that influenced their development.

They now teach – as he said, in large part, at the time – that corporate culture should emphasize collegiality, individual growth, teamwork, and mentorship up and down generational lines.
