Publisher's Summary

Throughout the history of business, employees had to adapt to managers and managers had to adapt to organizations. In the future, this is reversed with managers and organizations adapting to employees. This means that in order to succeed and thrive, organizations must rethink and challenge everything they know about work. The demographics of employees are changing and so are employee expectations, values, attitudes, and styles of working. Conventional management models must be replaced with leadership approaches adapted to the future employee. Organizations must also rethink their traditional structure, how they empower employees, and what they need to do to remain competitive in a rapidly changing world.

Any additional comments?

As an educator, it is important that I know what is expected of the students I serve. This book gave me good insight into their futures. I will use what I have learned to help develop other educators about the differences between how we work and what might be changes that our students might have to face.
