Library Journal Review

As more and more baby boomers retire, businesses are looking to millennials as a replacement workforce, but top executives report that young talent lacks the soft skills necessary for daily interactions. Tulgan (It's Okay To Be the Boss) outlines how to help recent graduates build experience in the areas of professionalism, critical thinking, and followership. Based on over 20 years of workplace research, Tulgan offers a comprehensive guide to equipping new employees with the tools they need to work in established businesses. The book is divided into two parts. The first offers Tulgan's theories on the root causes of the lack of soft skill training. The second illustrates lessons on building the missing skills. While the lessons could also serve as a refresher course for mid-level managers on how to interact with others, the author focuses on training twentysomethings on performing in a multigenerational environment. VERDICT Tulgan's lessons can help strengthen the essential soft skills needed to work with others, and readers will find benefit in the principles behind the author's disparaging attitude about the incoming workforce.-John Rodzvilla, Emerson Coll., Boston © Copyright 2015.
