Joanna Barsh’s book Grow Wherever You Work comes at a crucial moment for many of us thinking about leadership and our future. Millennials who are born between 1982 and 2004 are the leaders of tomorrow and it's our hope, especially us older folks, that they take the responsibility on for our common future. And from what I’ve seen in those I work with I am super optimistic and so deeply hopeful because many Millennials are purpose driven and working hard to make a difference.
But I’ve also found the Millenial mindset a bit baffling and also know they don’t want to be bundled into a general study or be characterized in a superficial way.
To that end, Joanna embarked on research to help them become the leaders Millennials are destined to be.
By interviewing more than 200 high performing high potential rising leaders - not just in big business but in startups, nonprofits, and government - She learned about the challenges they face and how they face them.
This book at its core is about these stories and about work, resilience, failure, purpose and an overall prescription for Millennials, but in fact for all people on any career path evolving and learning as they grow. It has positive psychology at its core and is very well written - #musings #muse #life #work #authenticity #millenials #thrive
