Millennials have begun moving into management positions everywhere and are shaking up the workplace as they go. The generation that was raised in an age of instant communication, questioning authority and traditions, and Ritalin has begun tearing down the corporate ladder, communicating on the fly, and bringing play to work. But even with all the exciting potential that lies ahead for these creative, bold thinkers, it will all be for not if they cannot effectively bridge the gap between the hierarchical management style of senior executives and the casual, more collaborative approach of their peers.In Manager 3.0, the first-ever management guide written exclusively for the Millennial generation, readers will learn how to master crucial skills such as dealing with difficult people, delivering constructive feedback, and making tough decisions--while gaining insight into the four generations--yes, four!--currently in the workplace and how they can successfully bring out the best in each.Packed with interviews and examples from companies like Zappos, Groupon, Southwest Airlines, and Google, this invaluable, one-of-a-kind resource will help these promising new managers connect with and encourage the unique talents of the generations around them, while also developing an effective leadership style of their own.

This is a good, first-to-market attempt meant specifically for Millennials to manage their career paths, including managing others and “By Generation” overview tips. It’s useful for other generations: as a Gen X-er, I wish I’d read it before managing a couple Millennials, who indeed showed some of the following strengths and weaknesses: Assets: Goal-oriented, positive attitude, tech-savvy, collaborative, and multicultural awareness. Liabilities: Distaste for menial work, lack skills for dealing with difficult people, lack of experience, confidence beyond ability, and impatient. Fascinating discussion on the internal vs. external locus of control and how this may lead to hesitant Millennial leaders. At 218 pages, some of the managerial topics are necessarily short and if you don't buy the theory that time periods distinctly influence a cohort of people, the generational observations won't apply. There are, however, good endnotes and a bibliography for further reading and development. There are some odd generalizations I don’t agree with—supposedly the generations all dislike each other’s music? but there’s also some amusing comments: “A watch is a device that tells you the time of day if you don’t have your smart phone with you.”
