Praise for Managing the Millennials
"If you're going to run a successful organization in the future, you'll have to learn how to manage the Millennial generation—that thundering herd of young people whose numbers exceed the Baby Boomers. They will push you and frustrate you, but they will help you win going forward. Managing the Millennials is a must-read for every leader who wants his or her organization to have a great future."
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level
"Our company has had the good fortune of becoming a trusted brand with the new generation. Without them, we would not exist. It would be easy for us to think that we 'know enough' because of our business. The truth is that we cannot afford to not build the same trust within our organization between the generations that make up the Quiksilver family. Managing the Millennials is a practical hands-on approach to understanding how generational tension gets created and what to do about it. I was fascinated by what I learned and excited about sharing it within our company."
—Robert McKnight, chairman, Quiksilver, Inc.
"Managing the Millennials has taught us how to harvest the creativity and energy of a new generation and inspire those of us who lead them."
—Bruce Ratner, chairman, Forest City Ratner Companies, New York
"With more than 32 million twenty-somethings in today's workforce, managers more than ever before need a clear road map for building bridges of communication and engagement between generations. Based on years of research and real-world business experience, Managing the Millennials is the first book to fuse the authors' cutting-edge concepts with a powerful and easy-to-use framework for putting their ideas into action. This is one book that I will wholeheartedly recommend to every business leader whose job includes managing people."
—Peter Economy, best-selling author of Managing For Dummies, and associate editor, Leader to Leader magazine
"This book is timely and practical for those facing the challenge of managing across generations. It takes a certain degree of maturity and perspective to be able to suspend one's own bias and engage others. Managers who practice the core competencies in this book will be better equipped to develop the people they lead."
