Notter and Grant make a compelling case for why Millennials act as a secret decoder ring to help us understand what drives customers and employees in today’s business climate. By adopting the four capacities – digital, clear, fluid and fast – you’ll be much better prepared to attract top talent, retain customers and stay competitive. —Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human

The old ways of managing simply don’t work for today’s employees. Notter and Grant share insightful ways to help both leaders and employees understand how to work better together by focusing on results over process. When Millennials Take Over is a powerful guidebook that needs to be in the hands of every manager to effectively start unlocking the true potential in every person. — Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson, authors of Why Managing Sucks and How to Fix It

When Millennials Take Over reveals what Generation Y can teach us all about creating organizations with stronger cultures and expanded influence in the market. Whatever you think of Millennials, they’ve arrived during a tectonic shift in management. Through case studies, real-world research, and client examples, this book highlights how to harness their energy and insights. — Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take

Is your organization ready for what is coming? Between the decline of modern management, the social media shift of power toward individuals, and the ascent of the Millennial generation into leadership roles, companies of all shapes and sizes are facing a future that they are ill-equipped to handle. As a result of this perfect storm of changes, many organizations are struggling to stay relevant to customers, capitalize on opportunities in the marketplace, and attract top talent.

Successful companies, on the other hand, are shifting to embrace four key capacities that will drive the future of business: digital, clear, fluid, and fast. Drawing on both cutting-edge case studies and research on Millennials in the workplace, you ll learn how to successfully apply these four capacities in your context to drive real business results, like more engaged employees, higher-value customers, greater strategic agility, and stronger, magnetic cultures. When Millennials Take Over delivers concrete, actionable advice you can use to set your company apart as a leader–rather than a follower.

The only constant is change. These four capacities are the key to being able to keep up with the complexity, uncertainty and rapid shifts in our industries and our world. When Millennials Take Over is an intelligently practical guide to how you can build these capacities for your organization – starting NOW.
