As you sit in your workplace today take a look around you. Take a look at the leader board then take a look at your coworkers and the way that they operate. There is a direct correlation between the numbers on the board and the work ethic/mentality of each individual sales consultant.

It was because they wanted it more, plain and simple.
Millennials. You can pretty much spot them a mile away. They typically have some type of technological device strapped to their hip, pressed up to their ear or glued to their fingertips.

When I ask my average candidate this question, they typically respond with "the boards:" monster.com, careerbuilder.com, indeed.com, etc. However, the fact of the matter is that the boards are antiquated and are going the way of the dinosaur.
