The Kids Are Alright

Just started reading the book of the same name and already I am hooked. Already I feel that every manager and every parent should read it!

Some interesting facts:

- 80% of managers under 35 have significant video game experience.

- It’s not just a man’s world - nearly half of Gamers are women.

To a greater extent than non-gamers, Gamers...

- like to win and on average, they believe that winning is everything.

- are more confident about their abilities.

- care more about their organizations.

- prefer to be paid according to their actual performance, rather than a title or a set salary.

- say they have a greater need for human relationships.

- believe connecting with the right people gets things done more quickly.

- prefer decision making after getting input from employees.
