"Engaging Millennials for Ethical Leadership brings broad perspective to the discussion of millennials at work. Jessica McManus Warnell evaluates the insights we've gained from emerging leaders over the past few years and the implications for today's multigenerational workforce, where a growing number of employees at all levels seek not just a career, but a calling. As organizational models continue to evolve, her analysis points to more robust, values-based talent development strategies that optimize engagement and performance. This is essential reading for all who believe that unyielding integrity is the ultimate competitive advantage."
Susan P. Peters, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, GE

"Business professionals and business educators find themselves questioning if their tried and true methods of engagement are relevant to the latest generation of employees and students, the millennials. In this book, McManus sheds highly focused and well-grounded light on this issue with respect to how to best prepare today's emerging leaders to handle the ethical challenges they are likely to face at work. It is a must read for educators, managers, coaches and trainers who face this emerging challenge."
Edward J. Conlon, Sorin Society Professor of Management & Director, Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership, Author of Getting It Right: Notre Dame on Leadership and Judgment in Business
