Ignorance on Fire : A Journey of Failing Your Way to Success (Paperback) (Heath Oakes)
About this item
Millennials do not enjoy an easy relationship with Generation X’ers and Baby Boomers in the workplace. They bring with them a unique understanding of both business and government and their places in society. Yet in 2015, they became the largest generation in the U.S. workforce. By 2020, the members of Generation Y will make up two-thirds of American workers.In addition to their perception of business and government, Millennial views on leadership and success are also different from those of their parents and grandparents. This gap makes communication between generations difficult, and many Millennials tend to dismiss teachers and speakers who represent more traditional models. Heath Oakes is a Millennial who has achieved great success helping others through leadership by example. In Ignorance on Fire, A Journey of Failing Your Way to Success, he shares the basic principles that helped him find the definition of true success and turn his failures into opportunities to help others. The lessons he learned are woven into the story of his journey from a barely educated young man looking to make a lot of money to the youngest executive in the history of a Fortune 500 company. Throughout the book, he demonstrates leadership by example, and how money and material possessions are the by-products – not the definition – of success.
