Sticking Points
"Why can’t they put down their phones and make eye contact?"
"Is it true that Gen Z is not much different from the Millennials?"
"How can we cut our generational turnover?"
"Why won’t the older generations adapt to new technology?"

For the first time ever there are five generations working side by side in America’s workplaces:
  • Traditionalists (born before 1945)
  • Baby Boomers (born 1946–1964)
  • Gen Xers (born 1965–1980)
  • Millennials (born 1981–1998)
  • Gen Zs (born after 1998)
Having five generations in the workplace is revealing surprising generational differences, which popular business speaker and generational expert Haydn Shaw calls "sticking points." These sticking points lead to misunderstanding, irritation, and stereotyping that hurts results and gets teams stuck.

There’s no need to remain stuck.

In Sticking Points, Haydn Shaw uses humor and pointed examples to show you how to apply a five-step process to the twelve sticking points where the five generations tend to come apart. These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward work hours, loyalty, social media, respect, and feedback, among others. Sticking Points is a must-read book that will help you understand the generational differences you encounter while teaching all of us how we can learn to speak one another’s language and get better results together.

Updated with new findings on Gen Z!
With five generations in the workplace at once, there’s bound to be some sticking points. This is the first time in American history that we have five different generations working side-by-side in the workplace: the Traditionalists (born before 1945), the Baby Boomers (born 1946–1964), Gen X (born between 1965–1980), Millennials (born 1981–2001) and Gen Z (born 1996–present). Haydn Shaw, popular business speaker and generational expert, has identified 12 places where the 5 generations typically come apart in the workplace (and in life as well). These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward managing one’s own time, texting, social media, organizational structure, and of course, clothing preferences. If we don’t learn to work together and stick together around these 12 sticking points, then we’ll be wasting a lot of time fighting each other instead of enjoying a friendly and productive team. Sticking Points is a must-read book that will help you understand the generational differences you encounter while teaching us how we can learn to speak one another’s language and get better results together.
