Sticking Points: How to Get 4 Generations Working Together in the 12 Places They Come Apart (Hardcover)
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-read 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.
Having four generations in the workplace is revealing surprising generational differences, which popular business speaker and generational expert Haydn Shaw calls "sticking points." These sticking points lead to misunderstanding, irritation, and stereotyping that hurts results and gets teams stuck.
In Sticking Points Haydn Shaw, using humor and pointed examples, shows you how to apply a five-step process to the twelve sticking points where the four generations tend to come apart. These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward work hours, texting, social media, respect, and dress code, among others. Sticking Points is a must-read book that will help you understand the generational differences you encounter while teaching all of us how we can learn to speak one another's language and get better results together.
