The 'new' rules of engagement : a guide to understanding and connecting with Generation Y

McQueen, Michael2008
Review: "To some, they are the tech-savvy, well educated and ambitious youngsters poised to take on and change the world. Others, however, describe a disloyal, disrespectful and demanding generation who have never learned to wait or really work hard for anything. Born between the early 1980's and the late 1990's, Generation Y has certainly caused a stir in recent years. Parents, teachers and business owners alike face the challenge of understanding and engaging a generation who have essentially grown up in another world. In this ground-breaking new book, you will learn how the era into which you were born has a profound effect on your perceptions and worldview. Building on this understanding, you will begin to see why Generation Y are so different and discover soime powerful strategies for engaging them be it at home, in the classroom or at work." -- Back cover.
