Publisher's Summary

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. Tulgan argues that until you know the personal need the job can satisfy for a potential employee, you and the applicant may be talking past each other. Those needs are so beyond the imagination of most bosses that Tulgan devotes a third of the book to explaining how they affect the job decisions of this generation.

Tom Benson

This book gives great insight to a escalating management/relationship problem. While it is extremely frustrating for those of us with over 30 years of staff development, it identifies a new reality and offers good tools to break through to this generation. Next generation managers will not experience the same issues, but for older managers with gen y team members this book offers some helpful tools and approaches.

A Eye Opener

This is a book that will help anyone with Gen Y children, working with individuals in that age group, or seeking to supervise those individuals. The writing is very good, the reading is excellent, and the material is worthwhile. Only the hermits among us will have no use for the content.
