It covers millennials strengths as managers, how this generation thinks about management and leadership differently than Gen X and Baby Boomers, and how that will change business.

Millennials, people who where born from 1981-2000s, are starting to fill more and more management positions but older generations still find them hard to understand and even harder to work with. Most millennials have a very different approach to management: they are used to leaderless groups where everyone collaborates in an open environment. They believe that the answer is out there but it doesn’t necessary have to come from a leader or from management. To them, sometimes the best solutions come from the very people they are leading. Brad Karsh and Courtney Templin, authors of the book Manager 3.0, talk about what makes a millennial tick: how they think and which environments are conducive to success, not just for millennials but for the whole organization.
