Product Description

Generation X has definitely drawn the short stick in the workforce. Dominated by Boomers as they began their careers, now X'ers are being encroached upon by eager Y's. In the third book of her trilogy dedicated to the cohorts of "Workforce Crisis", organizational expert Tammy Erickson shows X'ers how to find their own voice and finally get the career they want. Erickson's strong demographic research reveals why each generation acts the way it does and why X'ers are often left feeling independent but ignored, driven but distrustful of institutions and of the mainstream. With this understanding in hand, X'ers can approach their colleagues and their work more constructively. Erickson's research also reveals how the new generations in the workplace are shaping the future of work. Now, as they begin to assume leadership positions, is a perfect time for X'ers to evaluate the different options offered by changes in technology, the new dynamic global economy, and societal values. The book includes frameworks for evaluating what kind of workplace and what kind of job is perfect for each X reader personally; it also suggests both corporate and entrepreneurial pathways and helps X'ers identify new opportunities that are just now becoming available. Finally, Erickson reveals how Gen X'ers can use their unique capabilities to become leaders of the future.
