Sticking Points

Full Product Description

‘Sticking Points’ harnesses the wisdom of generational expert and highly sort-after business speaker Haydn Shaw on helping your workforce bridge generational gaps to become an effective, efficient and positive workforce.

Currently the modern workplace is juggling 4 generations, all trying their best to work together with different morals, expectations and work ethics. This potent blend of workers are attempting to progress their careers and support healthy growth but are constantly getting in each other’s way without even realizing it. These generations are:
•   The Traditionalists (born 1945)
•   The Baby Boomers (born1945-1965)
•   Gen X (born between 1965-1980)
•   The Millennials (born 1980-2000)

With his extensive business experience, Haydn Shaw identifies 12 areas where these generations clash in the working environment. These are what Haydn calls ‘Sticking Points’ (texting, social media, managing your time, clothing, and organizational structures to name a few). By identifying these sticking points you can help to create an environment which helps workers recognize their differences and make allowances to help them work more effectively and avoid conflict and poor productivity.

This is a must-read for managers, business leaders, volunteer coordinators and anyone else who is leading people regularly.

Publisher's Description

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 1945), the Baby Boomers (born1945-1965), Gen X (born between 1965-1980), and the Millennials (born 1980-2000).

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 sticky points, then we’ll be wasting a lot of time fighting each other instead of enjoying a friendly and productive team. This book is a must-read to help people not allow generational differences to define the workplace.
