There has been a viral video by TED Talk speaker Simon Sinek about millennials in the workplace that has been very hot over social media newsfeeds during recent weeks. If you haven't seen it, it is a must. Check it out here . Then, read on! In summary, the video suggests the millennial generation is struggling in the real world because they were not given the tools and social skills needed to survive and thrive in a corporate work environment. It then goes on to challenge corporations to find better ways to nurture and mentor millennials instead of throwing their hands in the air. As camp professionals, we have had the opportunity to work with, coach, raise, mentor and employ hundreds of millennials over the past 27 years. We have witnessed the evolution of what Mr. Sinek discusses in his interview first hand. He talks about how the millennial generation is often characterized as "entitled, narcissistic and unfocused".

So the first chance goes to Barry. Quite some way away from that pot. That will unnerve him slightly. Yeah, no matter how much practice you do on the practice table, I saw Barry with his mentor, Terry Griffiths, nothing like when you come out here and the atmosphere.

August Wilson might be best known for Fences but the Broadway debut of Jitney it's clear the late playwright has a whole lot more to offer. It takes place in 1977 Pittsburgh, focusing on a group of African-American men who shuttle people around the neighborhood for a small fee. Each of them does it for his own reason, but it's what draws them together -- the tutelage of their leader and mentor, Becker (John Douglas Thompson) -- that solidifies them as a unit. Director Ruben Santiago-Hudson captures the spirit of the era and of these lovable yet beaten-down men in the Manhattan Theatre Club production. You learn enough about the characters in the first act of the show that even if nothing major happened over the course of the play, you'd have enough to watch. It feels like going back in time to a different place. In some ways, the experience of looking back in on that era 40 years later is arguably a better vantage point from which to draw insights and lessons than seeing it unfold in the 1970s during the show's original run.

Reverse Mentoring is a key part of this dynamic. Well-meaning business leaders may think it's enough to simply mentor their entry-level employees. However, just as Lady Gaga was able to set aside the pride of her Queen of Pop bona fides to diversify her talents, all company leaders can benefit from learning the other way around. Reverse Mentoring helps businesses and business leaders greatly by providing a new perspective on problem-solving, fostering a more egalitarian work environment, boosting communication and supporting a healthy workplace culture. Learning can take place in unlikely settings and from unconventional sources, and Reverse Mentoring provides just the eccentric opportunities to yield benefits across the entire organization. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

When he set off with 28 other boats on the 6th of November, the Hampshire yachtsman waved goodbye to his wife and two young children and attempted for the fourth time to become the first Briton to win the Vendee Globe in the race's 27 year history. We await the arrival... In fact, the only Briton to win any kind of solo nonstop round the world race was Thomson's mentor, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, in 1969.

But according to the Spanish media, he does feel a certain disgruntlement with Barca officials for their failure to avert the shameful verdict although it is hard to see how they could have stopped it. And there could just be a desire, as Pep himself suggested, "to try something new, maybe let his kids learn English". Whether that would be in east Manchester is open to debate. City have the cash, the facilities and Pep, but if Messi saw the Everton game last weekend, you'd wager that his mind is made up. If there had been even a remote chance he'd head to the north west of England, the crushing nature and circumstances of that 4-0 defeat will surely have killed it off. He would have noted the number of games City had been playing and the lack of a winter break. He couldn't have missed the freezing wind and rain. And he would have seen his erstwhile mentor as he'd never seen him before – huddled and slumping into his seat unable to watch at times, defeated, broken.

T. Barnum-type thing early on in his career. And then Roy Cohn as a mentor, a guy who stood for cold-eye calculus about how bullying people works. And you put all of those pieces together, that he’s been doing this his whole life, and I dont see a single reason for him to back down. He’s going to go full blast ahead with that. O’Brien: His father and Roy Cohn, those are the two most singular influences on his whole life, and they provided him with a militarized, transactional view of human relationships, business dealings and the law. And he’s going to carry all of that stuff and all of that baggage with him into the White House. D’Antonio: Those early influences are essential, and I also think it’s correct that he has been conducting his entire life as a vanity show, and he’s been rewarded, most recently since his reality TV show, by ever-greater public interest in him.

Donald too developed business connections with criminals including the heads of the two largest New York mafia families. His business mentor, Roy Cohn, was chief lawyer for Joseph McCarthy and then to the mafia. Trump said: "I didn't kid myself about Roy. He was no boy scout. He once told me he'd spent more than two thirds of his adult life under indictment on one charge or another." To build Trump towers, Donald bought concrete from S & A concrete which was owned by mafia chieftans "Big Paul" Castellano and "Fat Tony" Salerno whom Trump met with before he was convicted of racketeering. Trump has been party to over 3,500 lawsuits, some accusing him of civil fraud. He made money by employing a demolition contractor that hired immigrants who worked in violation of various labor laws, which Cohn helped cover up by allegedly paying bribes to inspectors.

Funding = Success, right? I wish it did. But entrepreneurial tracks are littered with carcasses of dead startups that were very well funded, some to the tune of hundreds of millions. As a case in point, watch this 2 minutes 31 second video: Death By Overfunding. If you prefer to read instead of watching, I've also written a Death By Overfunding series covering Nasty Gal and three more stories of entrepreneurs whose startups have died because of their addiction to venture capital. Each started with a promising business. Then each went overboard in their quest for hyper growth without paying attention to fundamentals: Glam Media, Gilt Groupe, and Fab.com. Unless you are a Facebook or a Google, a capital-efficient, scrappy strategy is your best bet for success. If you are exploring funding, consider getting an experienced mentor first. Get a mentor who has seen many different scenarios and who knows how to anticipate what could happen next.

First-string or starter are words that denote how good you are. Director or manager define whom you control. 3. Can we make planning and mentoring team sports? Hollywood and the NFL engage the whole enterprise in strategy, planning and assessment. And the most skilled players mentor the up-and-comers. At the core of making our industry a better place to work is rethinking most of our assumptions about how to manage, right down to the question of who works for whom. Good teams become great when managers are empowering and supportive, rather than divisive and directing. Realizing this, the best leaders serve the team instead of commanding it. Jack Skeels is CEO of AgencyAgile, a productivity training company for agencies.

It'd be quite a story, that's for sure. Jamaica could win its first-ever medal in bobsled next year at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea exactly 30 years after the Caribbean island improbably debuted in the sport at the 1988 Olympics, a tale later immortalized in the Hollywood classic Cool Runnings . But there's just one problem: The Jamaican bobsled team needs a coach, and it has no money to hire one. SEE ALSO: The San Diego, er, Los Angeles Chargers epitomize the rotten scam that is pro sports "Most of the time we just manage each other and try to hold each other accountable as much as possible," team member Jazmine Fenlator told Mashable by phone Tuesday. "But it's a lot simpler mentally and physically to have someone as a mentor and authoritative figure to keep you motivated as well." Read more... More about Olympics , Sports , and Entertainment

Michelle joined the Sidley Austin law firm in Chicago upon graduation and it was there that she met Barack Obama -- a young associate she was asked to mentor. That meeting would change her life. Obama's political career skyrocketed, and by January 2009, their family would move into the White House. - Her causes - At first, Michelle Obama focused her attention on getting the couple's two young daughters, Malia and Sasha, settled into their new home. "Those early years in the White House were a real adjustment for Michelle," David Axelrod, a former senior advisor to Barack Obama, told CNN. "She had to start over in so many ways and she had to do it under the watchful eye of the world. And that's a lot of pressure." The first lady soon found her stride, and steered clear of controversy, embracing causes with universal appeal. Her Let's Move" initiative to stamp out childhood obesity through healthy eating and exercise earned praise, as did her work to promote the wellbeing of military families.
