Book Club (North)

There are many ways to improve your professional knowledge and skills. One way is to increase your knowledge is by reading current and relevant project management books. We've created book clubs that are designed to be small discussion groups led by a facilitator.
 
It's an informal group meeting for a Saturday morning breakfast and discussion. One person serves as facilitator to guide and promote discussion. It is an excellent way to meet other chapter members and open a dialogue regarding trends and challenges experienced by those in project management roles.

Current book: 

When Generations Collide: How to Solve the Generational Puzzle at Work by Lynne C. Lancaster and David Stillman
 

Overview:

If your workplace sometimes feels like a battlefield and your colleagues sometimes seem like aliens, you are not alone. Today there are four distinct generations of employees glaring at one another from across the conference table, and the potential for conflict and confusion has never been greater.

In this insightful, captivating book, generational experts Lynne C. Lancaster and David Stillman shed much-needed light on how to bridge generational gaps at work by understanding the differences that drive generations apart. 

Using a wry and practical approach to bottom-line business issues and drawing upon interviews, experiences, and the findings from their national survey, Lancaster and Stillman give you in-depth insights into each generation. With their help, you'll have the tools you need to recruit, retain, motivate, and manage each generation more effectively. And you'll recognize that while -collisions are inevitable, ultimately it's how we manage them that counts.
