The Book Every Millennial Needs to Buy
We’ve all heard the stories of groups of friends who all get pregnant at the same time and raise their children together. Perhaps it’s shallow to compare this to that, but it’s exactly how I feel about Manager 3.0, the new book my friend Courtney and her colleague Brad have released. We were writing at the same time, publishing at the same time, and ultimately “birthing” our books just a few weeks apart in time. But aside from the fact that Courtney is my friend and we’re both promoting our new business books, I have to tell you, Manager 3.0 is one of the best business book reads I’ve had in a long time! And it’s an absolute MUST for anyone who is a millennial or works with them.
Here are the Top 4 Reasons You Need to Read Manager 3.0:
- Because “millennials” is just another word for “new.” The language used about the millennials today is the same language used about countless other generations in the past. The “Greatest Generation” thought the boomers were lazy and entitled, too, believe it or not!
- Millennials, while somewhat entitled, need to actually learn to lead! Brad and Courtney take millennials through the process of moving from just being an “individual contributor” on a team to really being the leader of that team, and the strategies to make it happen.
- Celebrating millennials’ differences! So often, Gen Y is attacked in business. Courtney and Brad see the differentiations in the millennial generation as strengths, not weaknesses, and allow the reader to capitalize on those strengths by changing the way management is perceived and business is done.
- Incredible insights from incredible business minds. Packed with interviews and examples from companies like Zappos, Groupon, Southwest Airlines, and Google, Manager 3.0 will help these new managers enhance their unique talents while developing an effective leadership style all their own.
