There’s a huge difference between wanting to be recognized for your efforts and wanting a pat on the back for a job well done. I don’t need a pat on my back for doing my job. People have Millennials mistaken. I don’t think any of us want someone to coo at us every time we do our job and say, “Aww, you’re so good, thank you!” Well, I certainly don’t.
