Effectively Manage Employees Who are Older Than You (and Who Have More Experience)

Understand the best practices in managing the five generations of the American workforce.

Millennials now outnumber other generations at work. Today's workforce is made up of five generations. Chances are that the potential of managing someone older than you is a highly possible situation. This can mean that many new managers may be decades younger than the subordinates for whom they are writing performance reviews, delegating assignments, and deciding their salary. Being an effective manager requires skills like leadership, communication, strategic thinking, and planning. It takes time to build rapport and respect with a team. It is imperative that new managers take the time and energy to coalesce with their team to mitigate the negative impacts on team performance and morale. Managing employees who are older and have more experience than you can be a rewarding opportunity for growth and success within an organization. By recognizing and leveraging expertise, a manager can create a harmonious and productive work environment. Effectively managing older employees requires a thoughtful approach that balances respect, open communication, and collaboration. This presentation will explore the benefits of managing older, more experienced employees, including tapping into their wealth of knowledge, fostering a positive team dynamic, and promoting continuous learning and development.
