With Baby Boomers working past the age of retirement and the arrival of Gen Z, we are seeing for the first time in history four sometimes five generations working alongside each other. As a result, organizations are experiencing the X-Y-Z Divide Syndrome, where generational diversity is seen as a negative element, making it difficult to build and maintain a happy and productive workplace. Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z have different mindsets, expectations and communication styles, yet they have one thing in common: they ALL feel misunderstood. Being aware of each other’s needs, challenges, viewpoints, strengths even fears, is key to unlocking the power of intergenerational collaboration. Unlike most management books, Reframing Generational Stereotypes uses stories to reveal the origins of workplace conflicts, provide groundbreaking strategies to address them, and share first account best practices from leading global organizations. Whether you are a business leader, HR professional, employee, educator, student, or the founder or heir of a family business, this is a book you must read. “Rachele is one of the most influential thought-leaders in this space. Her vast knowledge, purpose and passion are deeply reflected in her writing. Through stories, she helps us understand the power of intergenerational collaboration, and presents innovative strategies to help shape The Future of Work. Raquel Suarez, Global Head of Employer Brand and Youth, Unilever “There is no more insightful guide on how to bring together generations with different values and working styles, and the advantages of doing it successfully. Focardi’s writing style is clear, interesting, often funny, and yet logically compelling. An excellent read. Bob Aubrey, Founder, ASEAN Human Development Organization “Rachele’s fluent delivery makes this book a page-turner. She provides insightful context into each generation’s mindsets, attitudes, behaviors, and how they shape their personas in the workplace. A powerful guide for embracing diversity and positive change, and a must-read for every leader in business today. Joanna Bush, Managing Director, HRM Asia
