The 27 Challenges Managers Face shows exactly how to break the vicious cycle and gain control of management relationships. No matter what the issue, Tulgan shows that the fundamentals are all you need. The very best managers hold ongoing one-on-one conversations that make expectations clear, track performance, offer feedback, and hold people accountable.
This book will frame Generation Y (children born between 1978-1991) for corporate leaders and managers at time when the corporate world is desperate to recruit and retain workers in this age group. It will debunk dozens of myths, including that young employees have no sense of loyalty, won't do grunt work, won't take direction, want to interact only with computers, and are only about money.
In this follow-up to the best-selling It's Okay to Be the Boss, Bruce Tulgan argues that as managers demand more and more from their employees, they are also providing them with less guidance than ever before. Since the number-one factor in employee success is the relationship between employees and their immediate managers, employees need to take greater responsibility for getting the most out of that relationship. Tulgan reveals the four essential things employees should get from their bosses to guarantee success at work.
"Food for thought"
Now is the perfect time for business leaders, managers, and other so-called grownups to give a much needed reality check to the Generation Y employees that are on their staffs, those born between 1978 and 1990. This is the argument posed by Bruce Tulgan in his new book Not Everyone Gets a Trophy: How To Manage Generation Y.
