Gilbert, AZ, United States, 2008/03/16 - Long awaited title, detailing how the generation gap can affect company efficiency, set for release April 1.
Linda S. Thompson, President of Life Path Solutions, plans to unveil a completely new approach in creating, developing and sustaining harmonious and effective relations in the workplace and beyond. Ms. Thompson’s long awaited new book, Every Generation Needs a New Revolution, will be released on April 1, 2008.
“The workplace of today has changed dramatically from those of 40 or even 20 years ago,’ states Ms. Thompson, ‘as today we are faced with four generations – all of whom have their own identities, own values, own words, own heroes and villains. How can anything but chaos reign in the office?”
Every Generation Needs a New Revolution clearly defines these generations and their respective, preferred working and communication styles. The book describes in minute detail how the members of these groups relate to the world in which they live. It then describes why they react to this environment in certain ways and also how they perceive and interact with members of the other groups in that shared environment.
In Every Generation Needs a New Revolution, she vividly describes the forces that drive each of these groups. She details their shared personality traits, the common defining historical events of their lives, their collective core values and even their mutual tastes in music, movies and books. This information is then used as the basis for developing a system in which all members of all generational styles can learn to communicate clearly, bond across style preferences and then to utilize those differences instead as assets, effectively accomplishing the goals of a particular organization.
“Remember the sale pitch, ‘This is not your father’s Oldsmobile?’ That’s what’s happening today,’ says Linda Thompson. ‘We are trying to sell our products and/or services to multi-generations, using the same delivery, to everyone. Most likely, those who have tried this approach have not found a great deal of success. Every Generation Needs a New Revolution illustrates how this commonplace problem can easily be overcome and can indeed be transformed instead into a real asset.’
Every Generation Needs a New Revolution will be available April 1 on Thompson’s website or at Amazon.com
