A Fun, Informative Must Listen for All Managers!
Anyone working with members of the Millennial generation will love this informative audio book by Ron Alsop, a Wall Street Journal writer. It offers an interesting and insightful look at the newest generation to join the workplace by covering the upsides (tech savvy, bright, high aspirations) and the downsides (entitled, informal, impatient) using real world examples from managers at Fortune 100 firms and career services professionals from major colleges and universities. It is a fun, yet informative audio for those employers that have no idea how to attract, recruit, retain, successfully manage OR understand this unique generation.

If you could sum up The Trophy Kids Grow Up in three words, what would they be?
Now I know
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
seeing what makes these kids feel so entitled.
Have you listened to any of Erik Synnesvetd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
no, not that know.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
Millennials expect inordinately more than past generations.
Any additional comments?
Sadly this generation has been duped into think more highly of themselves than they ought. Even though they have the advantage of improved socio/economic system they will have to overcome their inability to withstand challenges. Great book to see why they act and respond as they do.
