Becoming the Boss
New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders
This comprehensive manual will help millennials make the transition from being an employee to a supervisor.
Lindsey Pollak, an expert on millennials, tells members of the latest working generation how to manage their careers and how to make the difficult transition from employee to supervisor. Millennials (also known as Generation Y, born between 1982 and 2000) approach work differently than many older workers. Millennials regard technology as integral to their lives. They understand promoting and “branding” themselves, especially online. Pollak’s leadership readiness advice includes developing essential skills – listening effectively, managing time, running meetings, delegating, networking, and more. Her comprehensive manual, which follows her first book, Getting from College to Career, is a handy resource, but it runs long and could use more perspectives from young managers. getAbstract recommends her advice to current and aspiring millennial managers and to managers from other generations who want to understand them better.
