Overview

The people who have been tagged as "Gen Y" - the generation between the ages of 18 and 30 - are making a tremendous impact on today's culture. Their entrepreneurial prowess and adventurous spirit have spawned countless successes in business. This generation has grown up with more technological advances than any prior group. They have a distinctive way of managing their interests, their businesses, and their lives. And their power is a force to be reckoned with. In Millennial Leaders: 28 success stories from the most brilliant leaders of tomorrow who are already leading today, we explore how to effectively communicate with Gen Y and how to utilize their talents, most of which are entirely foreign to the more seasoned (i.e., older) generations, like the Baby Boomers and Traditionalists. Millennial Leaders features interviews with 25 of these Gen Y leaders, and represents the merging of the authors' leadership capabilities with the talent and skill sets of the experts interviewed.
