Swag is Not Enough
Career Advice for the Serious Millennial
The reality is that millennials possess some of the most innovative, and creative minds in the workplace. Unlike previous generations who adhered to militaristic hierarchies, groupthink, and chose to "live to work", millennials have decided that organizational layers create unproductive barriers, that groupthink stifles creativity, and that living to work leads to burnout. The problem is most of today's leaders are from another time and place. Until you are running the organization, you MUST learn how to work with, through, and beside them. Swag is Not Enough serves to enhance your ability to succeed by exploring common myths and perceptions regarding millennials. As a millennial, you will see yourself through the eyes of others, to better understand and ultimately overcome these misperceptions. Additionally, it will force you to look at yourself in the mirror to uncover some of your "blind-spots" and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Written by a millennial with editorial insights by her Baby-boomer father, the hope is that after reading Swag Is Not Enough, you will be armed with insights and lessons to take your career to new heights.
