The full title is [u]When Generations Collide: Who They Are. Why They Clash. How to Solve the Generational Puzzle at Work[/u].
I am still reading this book, but so far it has been really great.
I was born in '77, and am categorized as a Gen-X'er, but I'm on the cusp of Millenial (Gen-Y). In my line of work, I'm always working with people at least 10 years older than I am. The case where I encounter someone within 5 years of my age is very rare.
I feel that this book really elucidates principles that are inherent to many of the manager tools podcasts.
For example, the book illustrates a case where a [i]baby boomer[/i] and [i]traditionalist[/i] have a small disagreement because the traditionalist does not want to share information with the baby boomer.
This reminded me of a manager-tools podcast on the subject of sharing information during a merger/acquisition. Mike (I think) basically said that information should be shared without regard for role or position.
In addition, the make the case that there will be a lot of demand for talent in the future. Things may not be broken, but a company that understands these dynamics in the workforce can use it as a competetive advantage.
This is also a re-ocurring manager-tools theme: You don't have to be perfect, but if you're better at something than all your peers, it is a huge competetive advantage.
