In a recent article authored by J. T. O'Donnell on LinkedIn, the CEO of Careerealism illustrated striking information about millennials. This is particularly on point if you're a manger or employer of this group of human capital as they now comprise 50% of the workforce and that is only expected to grow significantly in the future. O'Donnell notes that millennials expect to be coached and frame the reality as such that this generation has a long and accepted history of coaching and realizing it's benefits.
Do you have millennials working in your organization?
Are you a millennial working in an environment where you know you could be more productive with coaching?
In either case, I recommend you explore the value and benefits a professional coach could bring to your organization or career.

When it comes to career coaching, whether the client is trying to transition to a new job, or increase responsibility in their current organization, I will often pose some trigger questions.
The answers should not be quick and of the cuff - rather thoughtfully articulated with much consideration, and best answered by shifting your perspective to that of the organization you want to be a part of.
If you are in transition, I encourage you to give pause to the above inquiry, write it down, and revise your findings as you consider it more. Moreover, this 'value statement' should always be accessible to a professional, serving as a reminder of why they started along their professional journey to begin with.
