If you are a manager, human resources professional, or business owner, you face problems every day - miscommunication, employee conflict, work ethic debates, varying wants and needs - problems that could be avoided. But why do they happen? Currently, there are five generations in the workplace: Radio Babies (born 1930-1945), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Generation X (1965-1976), Generation Y (1977-1991), and even some Millennials (1991 and later). Each of them has a different perspective, based on their upbringing and daily lives. The key to making encounters between the generations successful is learning to understand the point of view of each generation and respecting their differences. In Bridging the Generation Gap, the authors share hands-on experiences, real-life cases, recommended solutions, and ground-breaking research on how members of any generation can better relate to minimize conflict, miscommunication, and wasted energy. You will learn what each generation thinks of the others and how each wishes to be viewed.
