Product description


“Powerhouse Lindsey Pollak has perfectly calibrated this book for Gen-Yers moving into their first leadership roles. If you really want the promotion or just got the promotion, definitely read this book! It will jump-start your success as a leader and accelerate your next promotion.” (--Bruce Tulgan, best-selling author of It's Okay to be the Boss, Not Everyone Gets a Trophy, and The 27 Challenges Managers Face; founder and chairman of RainmakerThinking, Inc.)

“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, Ph.D., author of See Jane Lead and Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office)

“Consultant Pollak…promises to share everything she has learned about becoming a boss. In a conversational, encouraging style, she delivers on her promise….Clear writing and helpful lists add to the usability.” (Library Journal)

“[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….Call-out boxes, checklists, and quizzes make the book user-friendly and fun to read. This insightful guide is not just for young leaders; it would also benefit older employers or employees who want to better understand their younger colleagues.” (Publishers Weekly)

From the Back Cover

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.
