“Generations at Work: Managing the Clash of Veterans, Boomers, Xers, and Nexters in Your Workplace”

It came out several years ago, I just found a copy and it gives good insight and suggestions on how to mediate between the “Baby Boomers, Gen X, Y, etc”… how to listen and be understood, how to hear others and understand them. Suggestions can work in any work setting.

“H.R. Management Applications: Cases, Exercises, Incidents, and Skill Builders”. It’s in a workbook format, and has good exercises. I am going to try to format some interview questions from the activities.
