2016 is off to a great start – and it’s only getting better!

From Bruce

January was a a whirlwind! Our latest RainmakerThinking White Paper, “The Great Generational Shift: The Emerging Post-Boomer Workforce,” was released on January 12 and it’s been getting a lot of attention. If you haven’t seen it, the full white paper can be downloaded free at the link above and we are making it 100% available for republication in full or excerpted form.

Also we are thrilled to announce that Wiley has released the new revised and updated edition of my book, Not Everyone Gets a Trophy: How to Manage the Millennials. It is already available on Amazon, and we’ll be sending you complimentary excerpts from the book as well as some media highlights over the coming months.

February is already off to a roaring start. In February, I’ll be speaking in Florida, Washington, D.C., California, Virginia, Kansas, Washington (state), and Nevada… And I’ll be launching my new HUFFINGTON POST column “Strong Leaders” profiling some of the real strong leaders in the real world with whom I’ve had the privilege of working. Just wait until March!


Stay tuned and stay strong!
