Do some people in the office just leave you shaking your head? Like that new hire who comes to work late, with a smartphone and Starbucks latte in hand, wearing yoga pants that look like pajamas? Or maybe it’s that colleague who shuts you down every time you have an idea or question.
The root of these conflicts may lie in an overlooked issue: generational differences.
The fast pace of change in American society over the last century means that each generation has grown up in a vastly different world, resulting in social and cultural distinctions that we don’t always recognize. These differences are reflected in a spectrum of attitudes, communication styles, and expectations in the workplace that can lead to conflict even when everyone means well.
What is the solution? In ReGenerations, Jessica Stollings takes a high-level view of the four generations that make up the current American workforce, and puts it together with the best information available on what makes each generation tick and how that information can be used to build greater understanding and stronger organizations.
If you want to get the most out of your multi-generational workforce – and build a more positive culture in the office – ReGenerations is for you.
About the Author, Jessica Stollings
When she entered the workforce a decade ago, Jessica Stollings saw a need for better intergenerational understanding, so she decided to do something about it. Now a national speaker, blogger and founder of ReGenerations, an organization that helps connect generations, the Tennessee native has released her first book, ReGenerations: Why Connecting Generations Matters (And How To Do It). In just under 100 pages, the book educates and equips readers to transform generational conflict into opportunity.
Stollings’s vision for ReGenerations was inspired by her personal journey as a 30-something navigating the real world, her professional endeavors in leadership roles at a national nonprofit and a Fortune 500 company, and mounds of research that told a story she felt compelled to share.

What others are saying
“As a busy professional, I’m sometimes irritated by the “practical” books that are 60-70% longer than their content justifies.
Not so here. Jessica Stollings grabs the key information from social science and her own experience bridging generational divides, and fuses it together into a fast-paced, eminently practical book that works perfectly as both a primer and a reference.
It’s all very well to be frustrated with the seemingly inexplicable idiosyncrasies of younger (or older) people. But this book gives you the tools to do something more useful—and maybe world-changing.”
“ReGenerations is more than a must-read; it’s a must-act. Stollings doesn’t try to impress readers with her vast knowledge through protracted analysis. Instead, she sprinkles her most relevant knowledge across the pages in order to impress upon readers the importance of finding their own solutions to issues of generational dissonance in relationships and the workplace.”
Absolutely wonderful! ReGenerations is simply practical yet provides valuable insights that will benefit any individual wishing to improve both personal and professional relationships. From an organizational perspective, if we apply the possibility of our misunderstandings to “lost in generational transition” or at least consider as a serious component, we could improve the quality and productivity of our work! Jessica’s words have influenced and inspired me!
As a pastor, I seek to engage people of all ages in joyful corporate worship and fellowship, and I aim to provide shared service opportunities so that the many differences that exist become resources rather than barriers. The material in this book represents an excellent resource in the development of mutually beneficial relationships across generations.
For all these who desire to promote more peaceful solutions to a troubled world, start by understanding your fellow man! You can get a great start by reading ReGenerations!
