Millennials Are Struggling With Face To Face Communication: Here's Why

Millennials Are Struggling With Face To Face Communication: Here's Why | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

We love talking about what millennials know. As a group that’s become the dominant force in the workforce, we applaud their smarts on tech, social media, and even the age-old practice of branding. Yes, millennials might arguably be one of the overall most intelligent generations to come around. However, that’s not to say they still don’t have a lot to learn, especially when it comes to face-to-face communication.

To connect is technical .and temporary. To relate is to communicate and live in community. It provides a sense of belonging to a place and people.

It is not just the millenials who struggle. I have seen "teachers" who could not conduct a decent conversation or greet me properly because they were too busy on their Twitter feed.
