There are many books on leadership, personality styles and generational difference in the workplace. Finding one book that covers it all in a seamless fashon, supported by research and brought to life with engaging stories is a rare find. This book is that rare find. Sherry Buffington, Ph.D. and Marc Schwartz have a positve view (and an accurate one, in my opinion) of the newer generations, not just the “older” ones. They highlight the strengths, discuss the weaknessesof each generation and give excellent advice for influencing all generations to do their best work and to live their best lives.
The chapter on “Getting the Best From People” is worth the price of the entire book but you will want what’s in ther rest of the book. This book isn’t just for leaders and managers. It’s for anyone who wants to understand themselve and others better and who wants to understand human behavior and performance and how to influence self and others more effectively.
