Who are the millennials and why they should be strong negotiators? 

First, before jumping into anyhow serious reflection on the topic, it seems crucially essential to start with putting things (meaning words) in order, just like in case of contract drafting we used to  agree on definitions we utilise before structuring (I’d even say constructing) the deal brick by brick. Sorry, word by word. 

So, as it is obviously following from the topic’s title, the main character of the short will be some kind of millennials. And namely, Z-type managers. Sounds curios for me ) 

Generally speaking, millennials are the young generation people, who happened to be massively referred in media as baby boomers’s children, which are now being scrutinised thoroughly as a phenomena (mainly for consumer marketing reasons) and, therefore superficially and vainly. And not only they did become favourite concern for corporations because of their salesman and saleswoman needs, but also due to the reason that those millennials slowly, but surely also become the main labor force, and therefore, human resources, in this regard, seems decided to lean themselves all upon the same shoulder. And by no means last-named wouldn’t have it any other way. Hope, for the good. Is it, really? 

The most insightful among this story’s main character representatives figured out their incompatibility with corporate world fast, while bravest ones went further and stepped out of it forever for the reason that corporate world prefer to vail - some of those millennials are not harmonious piece of corporate strategy and customer research report, - they are agents of change, they are z-type managers. And nothing might compensate the pain of losing one’s own lifetime in exchange of fake sense of comfort and sustainability. 

At the happy (and never really coming to it) end of this story, its heroes have all become real life rock stars, called entrepreneurs (also known as former freelancers) whatever their creativity outcome is. And guess who’s “clients” they become at the end of the day? No ones. However many times we can hear that endless number of institutions talking about them, - in charmless reality they don’t give a shit, and this fact could be explained technically: you can’t care about the one who is better (smarter, more fearless, empathetic, ethical, has more stamina, because have no choice to not have) then you, even if your name is government, bank, employer, college or venture capital fund (with few exceptions). With so few exceptions, that fairly could be neglected. 

This is who millennials are in fact (in a nutshell). 

In any country. 

Any time. 

Well, there was another question in this story's title. 

Should I really further waste electricity justifying obviousness? 

I don’t think so.
