Fuse: Making Sense of the New Cogenerational Workplace by Jim Finkelstein, Mary Gavin

For employees and business leaders ages eighteen to eighty, a manual to building a team that's electrified by cogenerational collaboration

There's no doubt that the differences between employees fresh out of school and their more seasoned counterparts are vast. Fuse will show you how to create a mashup that fuses the experience and command of Boomers with the technosmart and boundaryless thought of Millennials, getting you and your organization ahead.

Jim Finkelstein helps you find the fusions--the places of fertile cooperation--that lead to an exhilarating, respectful, and fun work experience. Backed by extensive research and written by a cogenerational team, Fuse offers realworld solutions to common concerns and friction points: How can an older company draw in the hottest new talent? How can a recent grad thrive in an environment she perceives as steeped in cronyism?

As he answers these questions and more, Finkelstein colors his message with plenty of tips, anecdotes, and quotes, delivering a compelling vision of how workers can capture the energy wasted by generational divisiveness to cogenerate more productivity and satisfaction in the workplace than ever before.
