About the Book

“In Flying Without a Helicopter, Joanie Connell details unique challenges faced by young adults and their leaders in the workplace, offering action plans readers can apply to their ‘real work’ situation as they move toward solution. This book was written for you—whether you are a manager, a young adult new to the business world, or a parent of that young adult. Thanks, Joanie, for zooming in on this timely topic!”
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager®
and Great Leaders Grow

“The problems Joanie Connell describes are real. Employees are entering—and leaving—the workplace without the levels of resilience and independence they need to succeed. I recommend Flying without a Helicopter to people who want to develop the life skills needed to succeed in the corporate world (and their parents) and to leaders who want their companies to succeed.”
— Daniel Bradbury, CEO coach, investor, life science consultant,
and former CEO of Amylin Pharmaceuticals

“Managing across generations now is remarkably difficult, as each one approaches timelines, deadlines, conflict, and recognition in different ways. To understand these differences and leverage the creativity within, you could do no better than to read Connell’s Flying without a Helicopter! A wise read for leaders as well as employees, job seekers, and even parents!”
—Marshall Goldsmith author of the New York Times and global bestseller What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
