In Becoming the Boss, a New York Times Best Seller, Lindsey Pollak reinvents the concept of management for a new generation, offering a fresh and relevant approach to career success that shows them how to take the next step: becoming a leader.
We are in the midst of a leadership revolution, as power passes from Baby Boomers to Millennials.

Written exclusively for Gen Y readers to address their unique needs, this book is a brisk, tech-savvy success manual filled with real-world, actionable tips from an expert they respect and relate to. Lindsey Pollak defines what leadership is and draws on original research, her own extensive experience, and interviews with newly minted Gen Y managers and entrepreneurs around the world to share the secrets of what makes them successful leaders — and shows young professionals how to use that knowledge to rise in their own careers.
From learning to develop a style that appeals to your older colleagues, to discovering the key trends affecting your career, to mastering classic rules of excellence that never go out of style, this book helps you identify your next professional move and shows you how to make it.
