You Can't Google It! : The Compelling Case for Cross-Generational Conversation at Work
by Phyllis Weiss Haserot




Overview -
Much of the learning, skills and perspective people of all ages need to succeed long-term in their careers is not found in data on the Internet, but rather in conversations and personal relationships with the people they work with. Tech tools have trained us to search the Internet for answers to everything, but we can't find most of the non-technical or non-data-based answers we seek there. Learning about perspectives, relationships and experiences comes best from conversations.

In most organizations there are three, four, or even five generations working together with differing expectations about how things are done and by whom. People of different generations are increasingly isolated physically, functionally, or emotionally from each other both by communication styles and media and lack of the perspective that would help them understand why people think and act as they do. You Can't Google It facilitates action to promote and foster cross-generational conversation in organizations on both the parts of management and the multi-generational teams that are increasingly the key to productivity, profitability and sustainability.

You Can't Google It is a tool to help organizations and individuals remove the stress, frustration, and negative energy that often arises from working with people of different generations so they understand and are able to accomplish their common goals--faster and profitably. It is about the implications of different generations, and how to move towards closing that gap.
