I feel like I identify with Generation X.  I am educated and working on my third degree.  When I am not in college, I am constantly learning about something new.  I ask a lot of questions because it helps me to learn.  I am a visual learner.  I value my time, and value the time of my coworkers.  I appreciate open communication and being honest about everything at work.  I respect fellow employees and try to empathize with them.  I love to train new employees when asked to do so.   I am motivated by a manager who leads by example in a genuine way.  I am a self-motivated person and do not need someone constantly reminding me to do something.  I will meet deadlines efficiently and love to see good results from my hard work.  I believe hard working people are invaluable when it comes to a work place, no matter where one works.   I believe the Millennials would be the most difficult generation to manage or motivate.  Although this generation is team-oriented, they need constant feedback and reinforcement.  This can be a challenge with the demands managers face today.  Millennials tend to put too much emphasis on their image.  Instant gratification is a characteristic of Millennials that would definitely be hard to manage.  Giving these employees a constant pat on the back may be difficult in a busy setting.  A Millennial could perceive this as the manager not noticing their good work when that’s not the case.
