This book provides solutions to generational problems and work well with younger people, who will be future leaders through "true" leadership to create "meaningful results" not old leadership skills.
- Book Intro
Those born in the 1990s, who have become major consumers in the market, are attracting attention as the generation that determines the rise or fall of a company. On the other hand, the reality is that they are frustrating the leaders of organization as new recruits. Considering that they are a generation who are self-centered and clear in their dislikes and likes, existing styles of leadership will not work. Nowadays, many leading corporations are increasingly using formal names instead of titles like deputy general manager and general manager. This means that organizations are avoiding hierarchy based on rank and creating horizontal organizational cultures. But even if ranks are gradually disappearing, leadership will not disappear. Leadership will take the place of responsibility vacated by position. This book first tries to make sense of the characteristics of millennials, represented by the generation born in 1990s, then suggests new leadership solutions to guide them.
Now, it's important to be able to produce meaningful results, not just "create performance if you do anything." Unilateral work orders no longer cause subordinates to move. They will move when they see the performance goals of the work directly and know its value.
The book provides not just mentoring for seniors, including new leadership guidelines, but also a reverse mentoring system called "Junior Mentors, Senior Mentees." In addition, it introduces a good system that is good for immediate application to the organization, for example, how to become agile coaches, which is a leader model based on agility rather than perfection. This book is a must-read for readers who are afraid of being referred to as "old school" and those who do not understand the behavior of their employees.
