This is the first time in American history that we have had four different generations working side-by-side in the workplace: the Traditionalists (born before 1945), the Baby Boomers (born 1945-1964), Gen X (born 1965-1980), and the Millennials (born 1981-2001).
Haydn Shaw, popular business speaker and generational expert, has identified 12 places where the 4 generations typically come apart in the workplace (and in life as well). These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward managing one's own time, texting, social media, organizational structure, and of course, clothing preferences. If we don't learn to work together and stick together around these 12 sticking points, then we'll be wasting a lot of time fighting each other instead of enjoying a friendly and productive team. Sticking Points is a must-listen book that will help you understand the generational differences you encounter while teaching how we can learn to speak one another's language and get better results together.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
really interesting read full of useful information about the different generations and how they work looking at their history how they grew up and what works best for them and why they think the way they think has helped me to understand other people of different generations and has lowered my stress levels at work due to that.
I found this book while I was looking for a book about leadership development. I'm a millennial, involved in a few different ministries and I have seen negative outcomes of the generational gap. by learning to overcome our differences, we can work together!
