Millennials will be our next great generation of leaders. Today, however, as they move into management, they face difficult practical challenges. Millennials Who Manage is a complete, research-based guide to overcoming those challenges, delivering outstanding performance, and getting recognized for it.


Reflecting their extensive enterprise consulting and research experience, the authors show how to transition more smoothly into management.
