5 Millennial Myths: The handbook for managing and motivating Millennials is an eye opener for both the Millennials and the people who lead and manage them. It's easy to read, understand, and apply. Gabrielle breaks down the obstacles managers and millennial are facing into conversation topics.

Some of my favorite points:

-The desire Millennials have for mentors: Millenials don't want to go it alone. Just like their love to work on teams, they also know learning happens faster (and better) with a mentor.

-How cross training Millennials helps Millennials curb boredom, increase feeling of empowerment and responsibility, and ultimately, increase effectiveness in the company (thereby increasing the company's success).

-Millennials want to participate in real work; they don't have want to just "get by." We are marked by our willingness to go the distance and commit to causes we care about. Consider the effectiveness of campaigns such as Invisible Children and businesses like Google, started by Millennials who saw a need and go beyond the 9-5 to make things happen.

-Millennials have a strong desire to know the "why" behind what they do. Millennials are curious and engaged and have an aversion to doing work "just because."

I wish I could have read this book (and given it to my managers) when I was trying to figure out why work wasn't working. Gabrielle's book will save a lot of people frustration in the workplace and help everyone work and understand each other better.

Jackson's advice in 5 Millennial Myths rings as true as a church bell on Sunday morning.

I've worked as a management consultant and can attest to the fact that what is offered in this quick, engaging read will benefit both managers and the Millennials they manage.

Two personal experiences speak truth to what Jackson has to say. I was consulting for a company and worked with an incredibly bright, talented young man who was frustrated with his lack of opportunity within the organization. In my final recommendations to the company, I advised management to find a mentor for this young man and provide him opportunities to utilize his talents to the fullest. Otherwise, he was going to take his considerable skills and tremendous promise elsewhere. Successful leaders and companies recognize talent and find ways to harness it to everyone's benefit.

In another situation, a friend was doing an internship in a foreign country, and she did not understand why her supervisor became frustrated when she directly criticized a presentation that was going to given to a client. I explained to her that in this particular culture, direct criticism was frowned upon. They engage in a more indirect brand of criticism. She took my advice and when she did her exit interview, she told me the criticism she offered regarding her experience was much more well received. Whether working in America or elsewhere, you must understand the dynamics of your work environment, if you want to succeed.

Former CEO of GE Jack Welch recently said regarding Millennials "You get what you measure.

Ms. Jackson brings clarity to a nuanced and complicated issue: how to work with Millennials. They want a personal experience that is meaningful for both themselves and the world they live in. Managers will save themselves a lot of money (and headache) to take her analysis to heart - and they will have a meaningful working relationship with this new generation!
