Author, Generations and Millennials Rising

An enlightening guide to encourage multigenerational school staff collaboration.

Today′s workforce comprises distinct generational cohorts—Veterans, Baby Boomers, Gen-Xers, and Millennials. Generations at School provides educators with the knowledge and tools to create and sustain true collaboration, teamwork, and consensus.

Suzette Lovely and Austin G. Buffum introduce the traits and tipping points of these diverse age groups, while providing:

  • Case studies and workplace alternatives for the hiring and retention of high-quality employees as well as practices for orientation, mentoring, and boosting schoolwide communication
  • Guidelines for examining the generational footprint of an entire district, department, or school site
  • Easy-to-apply strategies to promote cross-generational collaboration, performance, and harmony

When sound communication emerges and differences are understood, school districts can create communities that appreciate the uniqueness of each member and value the rich contributions from a multigenerational staff.
