Leadership Hack: Leading the Millennial Tribe is a non-fiction business, human resources and personnel management book written by Bruce Langevin. Langevin has been in the workforce for twenty-five years, and fifteen of them have been in senior management positions. His focus is on the majority of persons in today's workforce, namely the millennials, who are described as people who were born between the years 1981-2000. They're a different breed of worker than those found in previous generations. He discusses how attitudes towards work, life, authority and the so-called work/life balance have changed over the years, starting with the GI Generation, born between 1901-1926; the Silent Generation, born between 1927-1945; the Baby Boomers, born between 1946-1964; and the Millennials' closest predecessor, Generation X, born 1965-1980. Each generation is informed by its own culture and that of its predecessors. The Millennials are also directly affected by the digital revolution. Their focus is on passion and the direct integration of work and life, rather than a balance of the two. They seek involvement on all levels, honesty and openness on the part of their supervisors, and a feeling that their work has value and meaning, that it will make a difference for the world. Langevin introduces the reader to a variety of methods for adjusting one's management style to work most efficiently with millennials. He concludes each chapter with a summation of main points entitled: Leadership Hack -- Our Call-to-Action. He also includes an extensive set of End Notes with links where available.
Bruce Langevin's non-fiction business/finance book, Leadership Hack: Leading the Millennial Tribe, is a thought-provoking look at the largest segment of today's workforce. All-too-often millennials are classified according to general stereotypes, such as the often incorrect view that they are unable/unwilling to stay at one job for very long. Langevin counters many of these misconceptions, and he goes a long way towards demystifying the mindsets of this dynamic and passionate generation. As a former manager of a team of young, highly educated workers, I was fascinated by the author's sociological approach to human resources and often found myself wishing I had had access to this text at the time. While he affirmed the value of many of my practices, he also came up with a number of other concepts that would have been of inestimable value for me as a leader/mentor for my staff. Leadership Hack is well-written, and Langevin's conversational style makes it easy to get involved with, and enthusiastic about, his subject. Leadership Hack: Leading the Millennial Tribe is most highly recommended.
