Millennials represent a generation of young people who are as interested in peer relationships as any other generation that came before them. The difficulty for them, is that no previous generation had the expectations of establishing and maintaining these peer relationships while also potentially exposed themselves to a global audience. In essence, each day represents the possibility that any deed (good or bad), mis-step, or comment will result in global infamy. The potential and pressure grow up in this type of fishbowl can be equally exhilarating and stressful. This session will addresses these ideas and offer insight as to how we can offer guidance to an amazing generation.
