Summary

A New York Times bestseller

The author of Getting from College to Career reinvents the concept of management for a new generation, offering a fresh and relevant approach to career success that shows Millennials how to make the next step: become a leader.

We are in the midst of a leadership revolution, as power passes from Baby Boomers to Millennials, who are stepping into executive positions in corporations, government, and their own businesses. Becoming the Boss is a brisk, tech‑savvy success manual filled with real-world, actionable tips from an expert. Lindsey Pollak defines what Millennial generation leadership is and draws on original research, her own experience, and interviews with young managers and entrepreneurs to share the secrets of what makes them successful leaders—and shows young professionals how to rise in their own careers. From learning to develop a style that appeals to your older colleagues to managing virtual employees to mastering the rules of social media etiquette, Becoming the Boss helps you identify your next professional move and shows you how to succeed once you get there.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[With its] astute insight and applicable approach, Becoming the Boss may be one of the most relevant books on leadership available.” Deseret News
“Pollak…presents an engaging, smart leadership manual for Generation Y.” Publishers Weekly
“Consultant Pollak…promises to share everything she has learned about becoming a boss. In a conversational, encouraging style, she delivers on her promise.” Library Journal
“Narrator Coleen Marlo delivers Pollak’s words in a professional yet engaging manner. The humorous audiobook conveys a lot of information, and Marlo’s narration reflects that dichotomy. She uses changes in her tone to highlight the change from information delivery to humorous anecdote or joke. Marlo also varies the pitch of her voice for different sections of text to keep the listener engaged…Marlo does a great job sharing Pollak’s rules for what it takes to be a leader in today’s workplace.” AudioFile
“Every page of this practical, highly readable book contains a tangible tip to help aspiring leaders get and keep the jobs they want. And if you don’t think of yourself as a leader, think again—we all lead all the time in one way, shape, or form.” Lois P. Frankel, author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office
