Valuing people is the heart of connection. Take time to get to know Millennials, including their career aspirations, past work experiences (ask what fired them up and what burned them out in past jobs), their strengths, the skills they want to develop and even what their interests are outside of work. Encourage and mentor them so they learn and grow. A 2014 IBM Institute Study showed that Millennials prefer face-to-face contact (attending third-party sponsored conferences/events, in-person classroom training and working alongside knowledgeable colleagues over virtual learning) when they are developing new skills.
