If the past is a predictor of the future, the world of tomorrow will be characterized by rapid change, new technology, greater diversity, increased globalization, and the need for lifelong learning.

In most workplaces there are likely to be four generations working together: Veterans and Baby Boomers, Generation X and the infamously ambitious Generation Y! Each of these generations has different views on career expectations, loyalty, learning and development, as well as unique perspectives on work/life balance. These differences are simply a product of how each generation views the world. Inspiring Tomorrow's Leaders Today brings a unique approach to this highly topical issue of generational division and dispels many of the myths and stereotypes. Drawing on cutting edge research, Avril Henry takes a comprehensive profile of the cultural, political and ideological factors which have shaped the various mentalities and values of each generation and examines how these values impact on working and social relationships. By promoting greater understanding, Inspiring Tomorrow's Leaders Today advocates more authentic and inspiring leadership and seeks to promote harmonious and productive intergenerational relationships resulting in greater employee loyalty.
