It is rare that so many different generations with such diversity in worldviews and work philosophies have been asked to team up and work together. In Zemke, Raines and Filipczak's book, Generations at Work, they identified the Veterans (1922 - 1947), the Baby Boomers (1947 - 1960), the Generation Xers (1960 - 1980) and Generation Nexters or Mosaics (1980 - 2002) as the four generations within the workforce today. The authors stated that "To be effective with other human beings, everyone must know them as individuals." Creating circumstances where people are, at least, aware of the value of learning about each other even if they're not interested in actually learning about each other.
