NEW YORK, May 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's Millennials are 20-40 years old and are already half of the country's workforce. Many Millennials are ready to become managers and leaders within their fields. But in many cases, they will be taking that step without anyone having told them what to expect and how to be successful, notes Jennifer P. Wisdom, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and consultant who spent two decades working with students at Columbia University and George Washington University.
Combining her own 30 years of work experience with the coaching she has done with many Millennials, Wisdom shares more than 60 challenges young graduates are likely to face at work and action steps for handling them in the new book, Millennials' Guide to Management and Leadership: What No One Told You About How to Excel as a Leader (Winding Pathway Books).
In an interview, Wisdom can discuss:
- How to prepare to become a manager or leader
- Handling social media at work
- How to hire and mentor strong staff
- How to deal with challenging staff
- How to chart your own career path as a leader
