Almost everyone in business has an opinion about the millennials, the newest and brashest generation at work. Some consider them whiny narcissists, while others see them as idealistic optimists. Whatever their qualities, by 2015, millennials will outnumber boomers in the workforce. Brad Karsh and Courtney Templin – herself a millennial – define this cohort and explain how it is overturning old ways of doing business. The authors also tell millennials how to trade on their strengths and minimize their weaknesses to become the greatest new generation of corporate managers – version 3.0. By and large, the authors do a fine job. Older employees and managers may not be thrilled with the idea of spending work time on social mixers like “ice-cream outings, board games, chili cook-offs, jigsaw puzzles” or “marshmallow dodgeball.” getAbstract suggests that millennial managers and their employers will find Karsh and Templin’s practical information helpful and worthwhile.
In this summary, you will learn
- What primary work characteristics millennial employees have and
- How millennials can become better managers.
