Disregard everything you've been taught about leadership!
2018 GOLD MEDAL Axiom Business Book Award Winner!
This book is the result of over three decades of combined experience from Kelly and Robby Riggs - dynamic, occasionally irreverent, always insightful father (Boomer) and son (Millennial), who work with organizations grappling daily with multi-generational conflict. Through their collaboration, Kelly and Robby share their very different perspectives on the same problems most companies are STILL dealing with, but haven't had the courage or the tools, to address. Issues such as a shocking lack of leadership skills; the culture-killing generational divide that is demolishing many companies; and the stunning, often unrecognized impact of technology on the workplace.
In their "shamelessly funny, brilliantly written" debut book, Kelly and Robby:
Discuss today's workplace dynamics, including the changes in communication modes, the influx of technology, and the impact of Millennials and Digital Natives
Explain how a one-sided approach to leadership focused on "managing" Millennials is grossly insufficient, resulting in an inability to attract and retain critical young talent
Explore the new challenges of leadership inherent with the explosion of technology-time compression, distractions, complexity and the pace of change
Reveal how old leadership challenges persist, and explore how the younger generation will expose those challenges more than ever
Detail the CounterMentor leadership model and prescribe specific tactics and techniques for addressing both old and new leadership issues
