Millennial Business Leaders Have a Message for Their Generation: There’s Nothing Wrong With Corporate Culture — You’re Just Doing It Wrong

Lioncrest Publishing releases a new book, Millennial Reboot, tackling the growing gap between millennials and corporate culture. The book's advice: Millennials can make the corporate world work for them, if they understand it.

“Issues between old-school and new-school mentalities in business aren’t because of a generational gap. They’re because of a communication gap. Both groups can learn from each other and must be able to appreciate what each brings to the table.”

Too much of the advice provided to millennials is the same message, recycled. They need to follow their passion, do what they love, travel the world, and live in the moment.

Not surprisingly, many of these same millennials end up let down by normal jobs. They dream of a fantasy life, rather than learning how to make the most of reality.

To help solve this problem Kate Athmer and Rob Johnson, two Philadelphia-based millennial executives, have put together the tools, tips, and tricks to bridge the communication gaps between different generational workplace mentalities in their new book, Millennial Reboot: Our Generation's Playbook for Professional Growth.

For millennials looking to balance their ideals with the demands of corporate culture, Millennial Reboot provides a guide to:

  • How to meet corporate expectations without sacrificing authenticity. Many millennials feel that they can’t be themselves in a corporate setting, and this book contains the authors advice on how to do just that.
  • How to adapt to a variety of challenging workplace personalities. Millennials are used to being surrounded by millennials, and the workplace can bring them into close contact with individuals with very different mindsets.
  • How to initiate change within an established corporate framework. The largest frustration most millennials feel in a corporate environment is to not be able to make an impact. The problem lies not in the corporate structure, but in their strategies for making change.

Several business leaders have commented on the benefit of reading and applying the knowledge conveyed in Millennial Reboot. Scott Vaughan, the CMO at Integrate, described the book: "A new generation of professionals are entering the workforce and our communities with a very different view of the world. Kate and Rob - who have walked in their shoes - bring their real-world guidance and a playbook for the Millennial generation who will soon comprise the large majority of our workforce.”

It is also being acclaimed by the academic world. A message from Neil Sullivan, University of Dayton’s athletic director: “Millennials: Read this book!”

Millennial Reboot, published by Lioncrest Publishing, is available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback versions.
