Publisher's Summary

For the first time, there are five distinct generations sharing the workplace at many American companies - from Baby Boomer to Generation Z. That means an age difference of up to 60 years and a multitude of experiences and attitudes. More crucially, it means there are tremendous challenges - as well as significant opportunity - when trying to foster collaboration between these diverse groups.

In this workshop, workplace culture expert (and proud Gen Xer) Jennifer Romolini examines this extraordinary phenomenon and how it has upended typical management strategies. She guides you through the biases and stereotypes that can cause intergenerational teams to stumble, exploring how to encourage collaboration across diverse working styles. And she shows how fresh thinking, innovative hiring and reporting structures, and effective communication can build teams in which everyone thrives, innovates, and succeeds.

Key takeaways:

  • How age stereotypes can linger even in the most progressive workplaces
  • Why some management styles don’t work in today’s diverse office
  • Why avoiding labels - even in jest - is vital
  • How to recognize the difference between self-advocacy and entitlement
  • How hiring across generations can inject vitality and diversity

A pleasant way to give bad advice

The reader has a very pleasant voice. I found too much advice to shut down this and that person and behaviour. I seemed to me to be a negative approach to managing teams and individuals. It was only anecdotal with no real research to back up the claims. On one hand there is advice to not do something, then the narrative is advice to do what was advised not to do. Very shallow.

Great Info for Quick Reminders

Good quick run-through, and reminder, of how to properly act in a business setting. The background noises kept making me think that my phone was ringing. They could’ve done without that “music.”

Newsletter Info

The content was something that you can find in any newsletter produced by a professional organization. Additionally the “background” music they played throughout the narrative was distracting and annoying. Would have given more stars if not for the annoying music.
