When Millennials Take Over - Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant

When Millennials Take Over - Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant
Being a parent of a millenial, this book ( I received a pre-publication review copy) was a book I was craving to read. No, I did not go with my kid to job interviews , as you will read a few millenials did in this book.

Many articles have been written about millennials and their expectation of  "continuous positive feedback, immediate promotions, and unreasonable amounts of authority" Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant draw attention to the fact  -
"Every 20 years or so, a new generation enters the workforce, and the rest of us, quite frankly, freak out about it."

In the book the authors draw attention to the fact that the way we are doing business is changing. There is a an entire generation that grew up taking the internet for granted and the social communication as a right.

The three trends that the authors highlight in the book  :

  • • The decline of traditional management
  • • The social internet revolution
  • • The Millennial generation entering the workforce.

The change in the workforce is not too far away. The authors say, "In 2020 Millennials will be the largest segment of the workforce, just as they are ascending into management positions."

I am in a digital marketing role and we attract a lot ofmillennials as they  are comfortable in a digital world. They love places where change  is continuous and they can continue to learn. There is nothing stable about a working environment that is stable for millennials.
Before I give away the whole book. If you are in a work place where you are likely to employ, work with or train millennials - that means probably any business that exists now , read the book.

Emirates flies the Airbus A380-800 from Washington DC to Dubai There was a time that flying between India and the US meant a stopover in London, Frankfurt, Paris or Amsterdam (I loved Amsterdam). However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
