THE GENERATION Z GUIDE
The Generation Z Guide equips professionals to improve recruitment, enhance engagement, and effectively train and develop the post-Millennial generation.
Born after 1998, Gen Z ranges from those entering high school, completing undergraduate college, and starting careers.
Gen Z is very different than Millennials, and their rapid entrance into the workforce is increasing the complexity of managing and working across generations. In fact, 62 percent of Gen Z anticipate challenges working with Baby Boomers and Generation X.
Gen Z has never known a Google-free world. Growing up during the most accelerated and game-changing periods of technological advancements in history has imprinted Gen Z with new behaviors, preferences, and expectations of work, communication, leadership, and much more.
The Generation Z Guide insights are research based and the applications are marketplace tested. Learn from leading companies on how best to attract, engage, and lead Gen Z.
The next generation holds the key to unlocking what the future holds. A firm understanding of Gen Z provides institutions and companies with a leg up on what it will take to prepare for and thrive in the future.
THE MILLENNIAL MANUAL
The Millennial Manual equips leaders to increase productivity, improve retention, and accelerate the development of their Millennial workforce.
Since Millennials became a majority of the labor force, leaders have found themselves ill-equipped to successfully manage, develop, and engage this unprecedented generation.

The actionable strategies shared in this book are the result of five years of strenuous research, harvesting the best practices of managing Millennials from thousands of leaders in hundreds of companies. The result is a comprehensive guide to overcoming most of the challenges managers face when leading Millennials—a generation that to outsiders seems to be in constant flux.
