PRLog - May 16, 2014 - Business Book Summary of Manager 3.0
EBSCO Publishing has just released a new book summary. As they enter the ranks of management, members of the millennial generation bring a unique set of skills and values that are shaking up the workplace. In Manager 3.0, Brad Karsh and Courtney Templin offer insights and sound advice for millennial managers who are ready to lead. With their love of technology and teamwork, their confidence and optimism, millennials want to make a difference and change the world. Manager 3.0 gives millennials the tools they need to move into management and provides an overview of the four generations in the workplace today. By starting with what motivates them and how they are perceived by others, millennial managers can gain a better understanding of how to CONNECT (Communicate, Own it, Navigate, Negotiate, Engage, Collaborate, and Teach) with their teams.
Brad Karsh and Courtney Templin offer readers the following advice:
· Millennial managers will be more effective if they understand the styles and driving forces behind the groups that they work with. Traditionalists (born 1928–1945)
· Millennials approach work in a manner that is collaborative, flexible, transparent, casual, and balanced.
· Having grown up in an era of constant change, millennials will make several changes to the traditional workplace, including eliminating career ladders and barriers to collaboration. They are much more likely to use technology to communicate, learn, manage others, and work wherever and whenever they need to.
· Millennial managers who are new to the job must make the shift from being outstanding contributors to leaders who inspire outstanding contributions from others. It is important for millennial managers to keep employees engaged and CONNECT: Communicate, Own it, Navigate, Negotiate, Engage, Collaborate, and Teach.
