To hear some employers tell it, there's a lot of eye-rolling in the workplace these days: eye-rolling from the young employees given tasks, eye-rolling from the managers assigning tasks. 

Millennials do get a bad rap at work, and Crystal Kadakia explains why and how in her book The Millennial Myth: Transforming Misunderstanding into Workplace Breakthroughs

Are millennials lazy, entitled, disrespectful, and disloyal?  Kadakia says no, these are all myths. 

She addresses those and moves on to approaches to getting work done and keeping both worker and boss satisfied.  The author joins us with highlights.
