A millennial's guide to rewriting the rules of management

Book publisher AMACOM released late last year, MANAGER 3.0, a Millennial’s guide to rewriting the rules of management. The book provides millennial leaders the skill-building tools and gap-bridging practices.

The eldest Millennials are reaching their 30s and are fast becoming a force to reckon with in business. By 2015, based on U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics, Millennials — “kids” born between 1981 and 2000—will actually outnumber Boomers in the workplace. With Generation X too small to fill the footprint of retiring Boomers (who are turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 a day), Millennials are beginning to step into management roles.

Authors Brad Karsh and Courtney Templin tackle in the book the questions of:

  • How can Millennials build on their defining strengths and overcome not only their individual shortfalls, but also the perceived negative attributes of their generation?
  • How can they effectively manage a variety of older people—Traditionalists and Boomers who think in terms of hierarchy, along with fiercely independent Gen Xers—not to mention difficult people of all ages?

Karsh is President and Founder of JB Training Solutions and JobBound, companies dedicated to helping professionals succeed. He is a frequent guest commentator on CNBC, CNN, and The Dr. Phil Show, and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune, and USA Today.

Templin is the Chief Operating Officer at JB Training Solutions, and a Millennial herself. She sits on the board of the Chicago Society for Human Resource Management, where she leads the Emerging Leaders Initiative.
