Advice 'Tweets' for Up-and-Coming Managers

Professional Courtesy Respect the experience of more mature co-workers, but don't be intimidated by it.

Professionals in the Millennial Generation (born in the 1980s and '90s) are determined to climb swiftly within their organizations. However, they would achieve that goal more quickly if they adopted some of the measured, strategic approaches of their more experienced managers. The book Manager 3.0: A Millennial's Guide to Rewriting the Rules of Management (Amacom/available now) promises to help young professionals understand how to walk the line between unbridled ambition and complacency, while balancing a sense of over-entitlement with the inability to assert one's worth. To concisely illustrate these lessons, authors Brad Karsh and Courtney Templin came up with the following 10 advice "tweets." While Millennials are the prime audience here, the tips actually apply to anyone who wants to lead professional teams. Karsh is president and founder of JB Training Solutions and JobBound, two companies that provide professional training and services. Templin is COO at JB Training Solutions, and sits on the board of the Chicago Society for Human Resources Management—and she's also a Millennial.
