Millennials are taking over the world and are rapidly filling leadership roles. Each generation has proven to have its characteristics and stereotypes. Though not a leadership text, Make Me the Boss: Surviving as A Millennial Manager in the Corporate World by Emily Tsitrian gives a fresh take on proven and evidence-based leadership principles that have enhanced effective people management through the years. Emily describes the importance of successful influence during the transition from employee to manager, as well as giving and receiving constructive feedback. The author explains the significance of successfully applying empathy and emotional intelligence while giving examples. The book gives relatable advice for self-reflection and ways to obtain a confident yet flexible self-image and mentions the pitfalls and benefits of emotional and social connections with subordinates. Whereas the typical Generation X employee pictures themselves as a manager yet to be discovered, the author describes a new millennial manager as someone pleasantly shocked by the promotion and who might need reasonable advice.
Using humor, contemporary analogy, and language familiar to the millennial reader, Emily Tsitrian illuminates and illustrates sound leadership principles in an entertaining and easily understood way. She describes the stereotypical millennial as an “overthinker, sensitive, a little anxious, always on the verge of an existential crisis, and addicted to [their] phone.” Make Me the Boss is a bright and practical guide to optimizing the solution-oriented leadership role. The author adds to the narrative around a “shifting collective consciousness.” It is not just for the millennial reader but for anyone who wishes to optimize their leadership performance and gain a better understanding of generational differences.
