    Millennials are no longer simply entering a multi-generational workforce; many are leading it.   As of 2015,  the majority of employees in the workforce are now Millennials, and many are being promoted to supervisory leadership positions.  This generation of highly educated 20-30 somethings tend to have an unconventional supervisory style, which can be a source of inspiration... or conflict. To be an effective supervisor it is important for a Millennial to understand the  work values and management preferences of the other generations.

    There are many choices to be made in the workplace. The workplace can be a breeding ground for conflict due to different personality and communication styles. We can choose to ignore or accelerate conflict with others, or we can choose to allow conflict to make the positive changes within our organization. On the other hand, we can choose to work collaboratively, or cooperatively together to further the goals of our organization. It's a choice we make, so what will it be today?
