Book Description :

For the first time in history, four distinct and very different generations are working together. Generational conflict is one of the last bastions of acceptable discrimination in today's workplace. Each generation has different beliefs, expectations, values, learning styles, and desires. These result in a strong tendency for them to adopt different work habits. Managing employees of several generations is not an easy task, but it is the reality of the business world today. The creation of a culture and coordinating programs that foster communication and collaboration between all of the generations present in the workforce will help to alleviate the difficulties managers may encounter. In order to truly create a cohesive workplace, managers must encourage employees to view generational difference as a valuable strength rather than a weakness. Based on rigorous academic research, Managing the Multi-Generational Workforce identifies the characteristics of the different generations, considers their expectations and values, and how these influence the way they relate to each other. The authors then examine implications for organizational culture and structures, recruitment and retention tactics, training, and management styles and approaches. This book actually tackles the issue of properly integrating the newest generation - the 'Millennials', into the workforce and challenges the unrealistic belief that all that needs to happen is for younger generations to be 'changed' to conform to workforce norms. As younger generations enter the workforce, and eventually dominate it, workforce norms will change. Any firm or manager competing in today's war for top talent will find this book indispensable.

Book Description :

Creative Management of Small Public Libraries in the 21st Century is an anthology on small public libraries as centers of communities serving populations under 25,000 that make up most of the public library systems in the United States. A wide selection of topics was sought from contributors with varied backgrounds reflecting the diversity of small public libraries. The thirty-two chapters are arranged: Staff; Programming; Management; Technology; Networking; Fundraising; User Services and provide tools to lead a local public library with relevant and successful services. This volume shares a common sense approach to providing a small (in staff size or budget) but mighty (in impact and outcome) public library service. The contributors demonstrate that by turning the service delivery team outward to the community with enthusiasm and positive energy, it is possible to achieve significant results. Many chapters summarize best practices that can serve as checklists for the novice library director or as a review for the more seasoned manager working through new responsibilities. Chapters are tactical, focusing on specific issues for managers such as performance evaluations, effective programming, or e-reader services. Time management is crucial in a small or rural public library as well as the challenges associated with managing Friends and volunteers. While most public libraries do not have the resources to satisfy customer expectations for instant gratification, ultra-convenience and state-of-the-art technologies, The authors of this book details strategies and methods for providing top-notch customer service while moving beyond customer service to the creation of meaningful customer relationships. This volume makes an important contribution to the literature by reminding us that public libraries transform communities of every size. In fact, never before has the role of the public library been a more critical thread in the fabric of community life.

Book Description :

While much thought has been given to how business leaders and managers can obtain the most productivity from Millennials (Generation Y) and subsequent groups such as Generation Z, the true challenge is far more complex. The workforce of the near future will be a multigenerational one, featuring members from between four and six generations in one organizational setting. This situation is made even more complex and challenging with the effect of today's globalization, which has created worldwide hypercompetition in organizations that often involves members from multiple cultures who speak different languages. How to effectively handle such a diverse population is increasingly a key concern for organizations of all types and sizes. Global Applications of Multigenerational Management and Leadership in the Transcultural Era is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on the application of applying numerous leadership styles to effectively navigate generational compromise. While highlighting topics such as consumer behavior, leadership management, and workforce diversity, this publication is ideally designed for business scholars, managers, executives, human resources professionals, recruitment agencies, students, business professionals, and international business leaders seeking current research on communication strategies and the most effective ways to handle a diverse workforce.

Book Description :

Why is it that many women believe that working with other women is harder than working with men? A clue: it's not because women actually are harder to work with. After decades of working to help women to succeed at work, Andie Kramer and Al Harris noticed the same thing over and over again: Women's relationships with other women are causing conflict in the workplace and this is hindering careers across the board. Their research demonstrates that at the root of these clashes lie stereotypes, toxic assumptions and societal expectations about how women should behave. Through extensive research and hundreds of interviews, Andie and Al have identified the most fraught scenarios of women working for, working with, supervising, and collaborating with other women. It's Not You, It's the Workplace provides practical, immediately usable techniques that will allow women to develop strong networks that will foster their career success and organizations to structure their policies and practices - unlocking the potential of women in team situations. The companies that succeed in the future will be those where bias no longer blocks women's career satisfaction or advancement to leadership.

Book Description :

Bridge the generation-communication gap It's hard to believe. Almost three decades can separate your youngest staff members from the oldest. While the 20-something, "Generation Y" nurses are concerning themselves with flexible scheduling and paid time off, their over-60, "Traditional" counterparts are light years away--worrying about pension plans and professional recognition. In between, you have to contend with "Generation X" staffers and "Baby Boomers" who are clamoring for an entirely different set of needs and priorities. Whatever you call them--Generation Y or Millennials; Traditionals or Silents; Generation X, Baby Boomers--managing your multigenerational staff can add up to a very gnarly problem.Don't let generation gaps lead to miscommunication and staff conflict In order to manage a multigenerational workforce successfully, the nurse manager has to take into consideration each generation's unique priorities, motivators, skills, communication styles, and experiences. That's a tall order for any manager--but especially in today's stressful hospital environment. Until now, help has been hard to find. Judith "Ski" Lower RN, CCRN, CNRN, MSN, a well-known and highly respected nursing expert, addresses the problem head-on in her new book, "A Practical Guide to Managing the Multigenerational Workforce: Skills for Nurse Managers." Drawing on her many years of experience successfully managing across the generation gap, Lower's helpful new book will show you how to: Identify generational differences Identify the main characteristics and formative years of the Traditional Generation (The Silents), Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y so you can understand their reactions and what motivates them. Recognize educational styles that work for each generation Online? Classroom? Self-paced? Hands-on? Discover different educational methods that appeal to multiple generations. Identify and provide the feedback each generation wants and needs Silent Generation nurses may have little interest in annual performance reviews, while Generation X nurses want feedback instantaneously. Understand how to provide personal feedback and effective performance reviews. Illustrate improved scheduling by understanding generational needs Silent Generation nurses may prefer a consistent schedule. Generation Y nurses may require flexibility to meet the needs of their young families. Understanding your staff's needs will help you create schedules that work for all. Formulate retention strategies that work for every generation Generation X nurses may respond best to promotions or pay increases. Baby Boomer nurses may be motivated by recognition and service awards. Learn what feedback works best for each member of your staff. Develop policies to embrace differences to manage more effectively Gain a better understanding of each generation's motivators and learning styles along with proven strategies to facilitate communication and encourage respect.

Book Description :

Ireland’s landscape is marked by fault lines of religious, ethnic, and political identity that have shaped its troubled history. Troubled Geographies maps this history by detailing the patterns of change in Ireland from 16th century attempts to "plant" areas of Ireland with loyal English Protestants to defend against threats posed by indigenous Catholics, through the violence of the latter part of the 20th century and the rise of the "Celtic Tiger." The book is concerned with how a geography laid down in the 16th and 17th centuries led to an amalgam based on religious belief, ethnic/national identity, and political conviction that continues to shape the geographies of modern Ireland. Troubled Geographies shows how changes in religious affiliation, identity, and territoriality have impacted Irish society during this period. It explores the response of society in general and religion in particular to major cultural shocks such as the Famine and to long term processes such as urbanization.
