    Classroom to Boardroom - Are American Millennials Lacking in Skills?
by Lindsey Pollak and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
In a test designed by Princeton’s Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Millennials scored far below people of other nations in the areas of literacy, math, and technology. The study caused many to question if Millennials in the U.S. have the skills necessary to thrive in the workplace. Lindsey Pollak joins LJNRadio to discuss these findings, and to shed some light on what may have caused the results that some consider t...
 
  3 Ways to Shake Up Your Mentoring Program for Better Results
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
Remember that old song we learned as kids, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold?" It's a good reminder for the workplace. As individuals, we benefit from having a professional network comprised of both longtime connections and new workplace relationships. If you primarily hang out with the "old guard" in your organization or industry, you risk missing out on fresh perspectives. If you...
 
  My Biggest Work Fail: A Lesson for Millennials and Their Managers
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
My first job out of college was in the business development group of WorkingWoman.com at the height of dot-com mania. Early on, I was tasked with negotiating a contract with a new client, something I’d never done before. But I was on it – referring to my notes and busily cutting and pasting verbiage. When I was finished, the contract reflected everything we had discussed – I had nailed it! But as I like to say, you don’t k...
 
  3 Small Steps to Better Integrate Millennials Into Your Workplace
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2015
One of my major business goals for this year is to continually improve my keynote speeches. So far, this has involved signing up with a respected speaking coach, taking several high-level online classes and watching a ton of other speakers work their craft. It has also meant improving the specific takeaways my audiences receive. In every presentation, my hope is that every participant walks away with both high-level inspira...
 
  Employee Perks that Work: Free Food is Nice, but a Great Career is Better
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2015
Lately, many of my clients and audiences have been asking: What employee perks actually work to retain millennials? Or, phrased another way: Do millennials really care about unlimited snacks and daily chair massages? This question has been discussed in the news lately as well. And I believe it’s an important topic: What actually motivates young professionals in today’s constantly changing workplace? Is it different th...
 
  How to Overcome Impostor Syndrome
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2015
Do you ever feel like a fake? If you’re a leader today and you’ve felt some occasional insecurity in your role, you’re far from alone. This phenomenon is often called impostor syndrome, and it’s a concern that arises in many training sessions I deliver to leaders, and new leaders in particular. The good news is the syndrome is quite curable. Here are five strategies to help you out: Know that it’s normal. Especially as a...
 
  Are You Setting New Managers Up for Success?
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2015
Last winter I started doing yoga. As someone who is not naturally coordinated, calm or interested in chanting, I had no idea what I was doing at the beginning. So I took some lessons. Then I worked my way up to classes. And now, a year later, I can occasionally hold a crow pose for three or four seconds and, according to my favorite teacher, my chaturangas are starting to “open up.” I’m getting better and I love it. Here’s...
 
  The Millennial CEO
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2015
I recently attended a party hosted by a startup run almost entirely by millennials. I had the opportunity to chat with the company’s twenty-something founder and CEO, who gamely answered my probing questions about his leadership style. (“So, you study people like me?” he asked politely.) What struck me most was the CEO’s lack of angst about issues that leaders of other generations often find controversial. Here were some...

  It's Time to Become the Boss: Individual Contributor vs. Leader
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2014
In writing my new book, Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders, I found that one of the biggest mistakes new leaders make is assuming the skills that got them promoted will be the ones they use in their new management roles. They aren’t. Being great at something doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be great at leading other people to do what you’ve excelled at. Being a great teacher doesn’t guarantee yo...
