Shannon is passionate about millennials and their ability to disrupt the workplace. Navigating many different roles and industries, she has seem first-hand the importance of being the type of manager and mentor that brings out the best in their team despite generational differences. She knows that current management styles are broken at best and damaging at worst. She believes in the launchbox philosophy that companies and managers need to embrace their millennial employees and customers, rather than criticizing and trying to fix them.
