Along with supporting clients, her next project is a deep study of living and leading in the digital age, including practices that help people create connection, emerge from burnout and balance the role of technology in their day-to-day lives. Kadakia is honored to be a Power 30 Under 30, CLO Learning in Practice and ATD One to Watch award recipient.

"Crystal captures the fundamental disconnect between what people think of Millennials, misguided generalizations based on tired stereotypes that have followed every generation, and who they actually are--which is the future leaders of our workforce. At Bullhorn we've adopted a 'Millennial mindset' of our own, remaining agile, innovative, and transparent in how we operate and build software, and the impact on productivity and employee happiness has been unprecedented."
--Art Papas, CEO, Bullhorn

"The behaviors that result from our perceptions are real--even if our perceptions are incorrect. Crystal is clear in her eye-opening and clarifying concepts that lead to mutual understanding. The new generation entering the workforce at an accelerated pace are messengers from the future. Their presence shines a light on the way the world is becoming. To mislabel or ignore them would be detrimental to all the generations in the workforce. Crystal shows how Millennial behavior is modern behavior and will be a guide for many generations to come. You will love this book!"
--Mick Ukleja, PhD, President, LeadershipTraQ, professor, and coauthor of Managing the Millennials

"When popular philosophy falls behind technological and economic advances, social institutions are at risk of failing to provide opportunity for their members--it is called structural lag. Crystal masterfully describes the effect of structural lag on Millennials and how organizations can create opportunity for an emerging workforce to have a positive influence."
--Chip Espinoza, PhD, coauthor of Managing the Millennials, Millennials@Work, and Millennials Who Manage

"As cofounders of Culture of Good, Inc., which inspires more than three thousand Millennial employees to do meaningful work, we found The Millennial Myth to be spot on. Not only has Crystal helped dispel myths that simply hold little truth about the next generation of leader, but she has also provided in extensive detail the way forward for those leading them. This book is a must-read for those who expect to have success in leading the next generation of employees."
--Scott Moorehead and Ryan McCarty, cofounders of Culture of Good, Inc., and coauthors of Build a Culture of Good
