9781119220602: Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit From Ditching Generational Stereotypes

A blueprint for managing people, not generations

Unfairly Labeled challenges the very concept of "generational differences" as an unfair generalization, and offers a roadmap to intergenerational understanding. While acknowledging that generational stereotypes exist, author Jessica Kriegel argues that they are wrong—and that it's unreasonable to assume that the millions of people born in the same 20-year time span are motivated by the same things, attracted to the same things, and should be dealt with in the same way. Kriegel's experience as Organizational Developer at Oracle puts her squarely in the talent strategy realm, where she works to optimize leadership development, team effectiveness, and organizational design. Drawing upon her experiences with workers of all ages and types, she shows how behaviors know no generational boundaries and how to work with people based on their talents, strengths, and weaknesses rather than simply slapping on a generational label and fitting them into an arbitrary slot.

There are 80 million Millenials in America, yet there are myriad books on "managing Millenials" and "working with Millenials" and "the problem with Millenials." This book shows that whether you're working with Millenials, Generation X, or Baby Boomers, age is not the issue—it's the interpersonal dynamics that matter most.

  • Examine the concept of "generational issues"
  • Explore the disparate reality of each 20-year generational span
  • Learn to understand and work effectively with other generations
  • Facilitate intergenerational understanding sessions

The human mind craves categorization, so the tendency to lump people together is natural. It may, however, be holding your organization back. The members of each generation have only one thing in common—their age—and even that varies by two whole decades. Why assume that they should all be managed the same way? Unfairly Labeled shows you a better way, and provides a roadmap to a more effective organizational strategy.

From the Inside Flap:

The human mind craves categorization, which makes finding patterns and lumping people together natural. However, such stereotyping may be holding your organization back. The members of each generation—millennials, generation X, and baby boomers—actually have many things in common and are much more than their associated generational label. What is behind the widespread belief that millions of people who share a certain age bracket act, respond, and should be managed the same way? Unfairly Labeled reveals the misleading research and guidance behind the newest generational managing trends and provides a better way to effectively manage people—not stereotypes.

More than any other generation, the 80 million millennials in America have become the focus of countless books, blogs, and speaking engagements tackling how to manage, recruit, and connect with this latest group of people joining the workforce. Most of this information is not only incorrect and misguided but can also cost you talented employees, according to author Jessica Kriegel (a millennial herself), who optimizes leadership development, team effectiveness, and organizational design at Oracle. In her eye-opening examination of managing three generations of employees, she illustrates how interpersonal dynamics contribute the most to business success. Drawing on experience working with employees of all ages in diverse industries, she provides managers with a full toolkit for working with people based on their talents, strengths, and weaknesses. Delivered in a conversational narrative packed with real-world examples and up-to-date research, Jessica examines how the most common stereotypes came into being along with research-based explanations showing why they are untrue. She also shares her personal toolkit, conveniently organized in its own section of the book, which you can use immediately to:

  • Effectually motivate employees without resorting to one-size-fits-all definitions
  • Work with a tangible framework for inspiring performance management, including planning, reviewing, and developing employee performance
  • Avoid the pitfalls of recruiting, including targeting specific generations, and best practices for creating top-performing collaborative teams
  • Gain clear, enlightening and actionable insight into the myth of digital-native versus digital-immigrant workers

Unfairly Labeled is your authoritative road map to finding ways to attract and retain employees of every age because, fortunately, talent doesn't fit in a stereotypical mold.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for UNFAIRLY LABELED

"Generational thinking is fatally flawed and has fed the leadership development and coaching industry for far too long. In this fascinating book, Jessica Kriegel dispels the myths and mindless catchall stereotyping of people in the workplace. It's a must read for anyone tired of playing the generational differences game and serious about developing leaders and creating a culture of collaboration."
—Dr. Salvatore Falletta, Program Director, Human Resource Development, Drexel University

"Well written—an interesting read that I would recommend to any manager."
—Jenny Dearborn, Chief Learning Officer at SAP

A Blueprint For Managing People— Not Generations

Unfairly Labeled tackles the topic of intergenerational dynamics head on by rejecting the concept of viewing employees through a generational lens.

What many management consulting firms advise as sound wisdom is actually unfair generalization, and this groundbreaking guide to an enlightened level of management strips away the preconceptions associated with millennials, as well as generation Xers and baby boomers, through illustrative case studies, the latest authoritative research, and firsthand experience of the author co-creating a training program that produced a return on investment of 795 percent by ignoring generational stereotypes. There is an abundance of published generational research that misleads many business leaders into believing stereotypes are true, and the thorough examination inside names the most believed ones and dispels every generalization with quantifiable evidence along with insights into our own behavior that makes categorizing people, or anything, comfortable. In fact, generational stereotyping is happening all over the world, and this widely relevant resource illustrates how other country's labels and definitions further complicate the issue in a global marketplace.

Blow away the stereotypes clouding your judgement with Unfairly Labeled.
