Is it finally time to re-think how men tick?

16 minutes

•  Why traditional authoritarian approaches no longer fit today’s leadership needs

•  Revealed: The five “Cs” to success

Do nice guys really finish last?  Not according to Ed Frauenheim in the new book Reinventing Masculinity.

He says traditional aspects of masculinity actually inhibit progress in an organization, especially with Millennials filling more and more positions.

“While a debate has raged in our popular culture about whether men are getting too soft, a quiet consensus has developed in the organizational world: today, soft skills are success skills,” Mr. Frauenheim writes in the book, co-authored with Edward Adams. “Compassion and connection—along with their cousins cooperation, communication, empathy, and generosity itself— have become critical to individual and team effectiveness.”

He says Millennials just don’t respond to authoritarian, my way or the highway leadership. And Millennials are not necessarily workaholics – many prioritize a fulfilling life outside of work.

Ed Frauneheim is our guest on this Bizgnus Podcast.
