MANAGING A NEW GENERATION
50˝ Helpful Tips For Managing Millennials
By Arnie Dahlke

In today’s world of instant, worldwide communication, from tweeting to visual conferencing, people are working faster and accomplishing more. And, younger workers have shorter attention spans. It is a very visual, Google-world, filled with endless information at our fingertips. It is stimulating changes among us greater than the changes brought about by the industrial revolution.

It is a change that actually is rewiring our brains. According to both neuroscientists and psychologists, the deeper people are immersed in these new technologies, the shorter their attention spans, the more impul­sive, impatient, and fractured is their thinking, and the more quickly they process visual information.

Arnie is writing  this book to appeal to managers with those changes in mind.

Busy managers in this world have neither the time nor the patience for voluminous treatises on management. With their shorter attention spans, they will be drawn to short and succinct little pieces that offer easy-to-implement suggestions. More stimulated by images, the easier it is for them to comprehend information when it is accompanied by visual images.

Thus, this book is being written as a short book, so as not to discourage a manager from picking it up and reading it. The helpful information in it is broken down into little two or three page pieces, to allow managers to select what they want to read, a little at a time. Many images are integrated into the text of each Tip to make them more visual and eye-catching.

This book is based on years of experience helping managers in both private and public sector organizations bring people together in a spirit of mutual trust, coopera­tion, and constructive problem solving. In providing that help, Arnie has formulated many ideas and techniques based on a variety of sources dealing with such topics as leadership, teamwork, systems thinking, process improvement, communication, motivation, management competencies, sales training, and customer relations. The tips are arranged into six sections:

Tips For Adjusting To The 21st Century

Tips For Enhancing Your Management Skills

Tips for Building Relationships

Tips for Promoting Teamwork

Tips for Improving Processes

Tips for Creating Customer Value

The last tip in the book—the ˝ tip—focuses the responsibility for productively using all of the tips in the hands of the reader. Reading the tips is only half of what needs to be done—the rest is up to the Manager who reads them.
