Review


"Caraher’s compilation of best practices will help organizations make the most of a cross-generational workforce and build a more productive and positive workplace."
– Publishers Weekly

“Lee Caraher has captured what the Millennial generation demands from their employers and shows businesses how to harness the power of this new generation to co-create successful, energized businesses of the future, in which everyone will benefit, right now.”
– Nilofer Merchant, Thinkers 50 #1 Future Thinker, 2013; author of 11 Rules for Creating Value in the #SocialEra

Millennials & Management cuts through the theory and rhetoric and gives managers and employees alike a clear way forward for successful teams and workplaces. A must-read for leaders who want to future-proof their businesses, Lee Caraher’s funny, concise, and practical advice is easy to follow and will make a huge difference in your organization right away.”
– Larry Weber, chairman and CEO, Racepoint Global; owner, W2 Group; author of The Digital Marketer: Ten New Skills You Must Learn to Stay Relevant and Customer-Centric

“Finally a book that gets beyond the survey data and the myths and provides practical advice for anyone who works with Millennials. Lee Caraher writes from personal experience in a clear, conversational style with real-life examples and a sense of humor. Must reading for anyone who supervises young employees or leads a business or non-profit in 21st century America. Enterprising Millennials will also find value in this book.”
– John Boland, president & CEO, KQED, San Francisco

"I didn't think it possible to capture the nuances of all the complex demographic groups now roaming around the workplace. In Millennials & Management, Lee Caraher has done just that in a concise and compelling way. There were times when I said to myself, 'Hey, I know that person.' What Lee tells us, is how to deal with that person to create a successful organization. A must-read for all managers."
– Dr. Richard A. Moran, president of Menlo College; author of Navigating Tweets, Feats and Deletes

"It's been said Millennials are unruly, unmanageable. But after reading Lee Caraher's Millennials & Management, I wonder how the workforce will manage without them. Boomers brought their daughters and sons to work; millennials are bringing their dreams. And that's good for everyone. Incisive, practical, timely – from a been-there, managed-Millennials-well CEO.
– Whitney Johnson, author of Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream

“With a mix of research, real-world stories, and easy-to-understand and implement instruction, Lee Caraher provides a refreshing, optimistic way forward that will get everyone working together and keep Boomers and Xers engaged in the workplace as Millennials become the largest generation at work.”
– Keith Kitani,CEO, Guidespark employee communications and engagement

Millennials & Management is a primer on how to skillfully lead this emerging segment of our work population now and into the future. Lee Caraher offers a wealth of tools and techniques to address even the thorniest management dilemmas. Both the experienced supervisor and novice to staff leadership will find immense value in her sage words.”
– Mitchell Friedman, Ed.D., APR, Associate Dean, Student Affairs and Career Development, Presidio Graduate School

“Millennials are a pivotal part of today’s working environment and defining culture. Caraher cracks the code on how to create a high-functioning intergenerational workplace built for tomorrow with a funny telling of real-world work experiences that everyone will recognize. Read it with your colleagues and help them grow, engage, and succeed today.”
– Jerry Ervin, president & CEO Paragon Strategies, Management Training and Consulting

I am currently dealing with Millennials in the workforce, and finding a way to motivate them has been quite the challenge. This book is clear in how to do that. I read it during my three-hour plane flight to see my team. This book made it easy for me to formulate a plan of action to deal with my younger team and help them to be more productive and more engaged during the workday.

Lee Caraher has nailed it! Not only has she outlined and detailed some of the challenges of blending the Millennials into the workplace, she has shared countless examples of what works (and what doesn't). This is a must-read for all business leaders and managers. This book has proven solutions that are well researched. I particularly appreciated the summary of do's and don'ts at the end of each chapter for quick reminders. Change is inevitable in businesses, large and small. This is a perfect read to instill the necessary changes that must be taken, backed up with the research and practice. I highly recommend this book for business owners, leaders and students of HR practices.

As a first time manager, and with my first two reports being millennial, I found this book very helpful. It is written in a very accessible, readable style, with very clear tactical and strategic advice. It is the kind of book that makes you keep thinking "of course, that's obvious!" full of common sense things you already know, but bringing it to the forefront of your mind and organizing those thoughts. Highly recommend!

As the mother of two successful, hard-working millennials, I've never understood the bitching and moaning that goes on about their behavior from the Baby Boomer generation. As a Baby Boomer myself, I took pride in my independence when I was in my 20's, and at times my behavior may have come across in exactly the wrong way for many traditionalists who wanted conformity. Pushing against the rules was a 'thing' back then. Now Lee Caraher has laid bare the mythologies that surround working with Millennials and points out where some of it is true, but most of it is generational and can be attributed to difference in attitude. Let's face it, their generation is as big as ours, and we need to learn how to deal with them. They are the future of our society. I appreciate Lee's forthright style, and for anyone in management who needs insights, this is a must read.

Lee Caraher has done a great job of outlining what makes Millennials different than their predecessors and providing useful tips for making sure businesses effectively integrate Millennials and other generations into the workplace.

An important book--whether you are a GenX or Boomer managing Millennials or a Millennial trying to figure out how to work effectively with these bizarre older people in your organization. Should be required reading for all new managers.
