Managing the Next Generation of Public Workers is a fresh and energetic look at the changing climate of diversity in the public and nonprofit workplace. The workforce of the twenty-first century represents unparalleled complexity: Baby Boomers, GenX, GenY, and Millennials. Although that diversity may be challenging and often overwhelming for public managers, Madinah Hamidullah emphasizes the potential strengths that can be drawn from complex multigenerational relationships. This handbook offers public and nonprofit managers the tools necessary to address generational differences and questions such as: • How do the newer generations in the workplace differ on such fundamentals as work ethic, family values, and retirement horizons? • Are they recruited differently and do they expect a different mix of benefits—perhaps a better work-life balance as a tradeoff for a lower salary? • How can diverse, generational perspectives in the workplace add value by questioning old, traditional assumptions? • Will approaches to organizational decision making necessarily change as new generations take over? The book is for public and nonprofit managers who recognize the challenges of managing a multigenerational workforce, and are therefore seeking helpful insights. This volume is a roadmap not only for human resource (HR) managers, but for all managers who must address the complexities of the human condition—complexities that are complicated by the most rapid succession of workforce generations that we have yet seen.

The purpose of this study is to identify and elucidate the influence of coaching in teachers’ attitude and performance as perceived by inexperienced in coaching practice nursery school. The question that guided this study is ‘What is the impact of coaching in a Greek nursery school?’ This study focuses on three research questions: • How do teachers evaluate the coaching experience? • What are the benefits and the implementing of coaching? • If and how teachers’ interaction with coaching changes their attitude? The author’s research was influenced by her first degree in early childhood education, and her own professional background. One head teacher and five teachers provided the study evidence. The qualitative approach was used to collect and analyse the data. This research has been a follow-up to a descriptive, exploratory qualitative case study. The findings were based on several different research tools such as semi-structured interviews, reflective journals, criteria sheets, coaching sheets, and SWOT sheets. The examination of the data highlights 5 key issues: the leadership effects in the working environment and teachers’ performance; the coaching understanding concerns the degree in which respondents clarify the different aspects of coaching; the next category, on coaching difficulties, includes the perceived reasons for which coaching was ineffective; the coaching benefits introduces the positive contributions of the coaching process; and the final key point is the coaching influence in the teachers’ attitude. The findings support that coaching influences the participants’ attitude to a limited but significant degree.
