Shaw, Haydn. Sticking Points. Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale. 2013
Today’s workforce contains members of four generations: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials. While working together, there are 12 topics or themes that are “sticking points” or sources of stress and conflict. “Sticking Points” provides an example of the points being illustrated, reveals each generation’s unique view point and finally gives suggestions for compromise and resolution.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Sticking Points was an eye opening read not only in the work place but also in everyday life. An excellent understanding is gained of each generation’s view point. Much to my own amusement, I found myself nodding in agreement when reading about my own generation. On the flip side, I had several “ah-ha” moments while considering the other three generations. While the book is a little light on providing solutions, the book does provide compromise, understanding, and maybe even harmony to perhaps become possible.
