The need for effective multigenerational management and leadership in
organizations is a natural outcome of the 21st century due largely to the
Millennial generation which has begun making its mark on the global
workforce. This rapidly growing group will soon represent the largest
demographic in workplaces in many parts of the world. While much thought
has been given to how business leaders and managers can obtain the most
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 effects of today's globalization
which have created worldwide hypercompetition in organizations often
consisting of members from multiple cultures and languages. How to
effectively handle such a diverse population is increasingly a key concern
for all types of organizations of any size, especially those in North
America and Europe.

These differences manifest themselves in the workplace in a variety of
ways: 1) The compensation, benefits, and “company culture” workers seek
from their employers; 2) How employees think about teamwork and dispute
resolution in the context of their jobs; 3) Communication strategies and
most effective ways to get employees on the “same page"; 4) Job-changing
and job-seeking behavior, including sense of company loyalty or lack of it;
5) The relationship between home and work including issues like overtime
and vacation.

This proposed book will cover the different management and leadership
styles required to effectively navigate the different generations
comprising nearly any organization for the remainder of the 21st century.

Target Audience
The primary target audience for this book is scholar-practitioners in the
fields of management and leadership who require a Reference publication in
one volume covering unique and relevant topics normally found in multiple
volumes. The secondary target audience is graduate students of management
and leadership.
