Quick to get through with some good takeaways. Easy to skim through since each chapter is just a couple pages.

Highlights from Blinkist:

“Millennials want employers who recognize that they don’t simply come to work for a paycheck, they come to work for a purpose.

“Whereas their baby boomer parents found meaning through family and within their communities, millennials and Generation Z find their purpose through work.”

(I’m not so sure I agree with these generational generalizations.)

“It may come as a surprise to learn that most millennials don’t really want you to manage them at all, they would muc

It's a solid reference book with a ton of useful information there's just not much depth to any of it. If you need a compendium of research and stats, this could be the book for you. I came away with tons of ideas that I could implement in the work that I was doing, but much of that came from my own personal notes and reflections on the topics. ...more

Gallup has studied the workplace and future of work extensively through engagement, and the work they have done on strengths. This recent book details how to build great cultures and engage people by clarity, transparency, and accountability. This means helping managers move from boss to coach, and expecting accountability. Lots of good ideas, and data. Also another resource if looking at how to manage and lead with your strengths.

Most of the book is an appendix of the 34 Clifton Strengths types; the rest, chapters of one to two pages in length. While many of these chapters are relatively inconsequential, there are some amazing gems backed up with meticulous research. A quick and easy read.
