[FLR] Help! My New Boss is Just a Kid!

Oct 21, 2016 | The “Wisdom” Edition

 

How do you handle being led by a boss who is younger than you? I may be thinking about age, due to the fact that I had a birthday this week. I’m not really a year older – just a year wiser! According to CareerBuilder, 34% of leaders are younger than their teams.

 

Another interesting stat according to The Family & Wor Institute, 59% of Gen X and Baby Boomers and 79% of “Matures” (aged 60 and over) believed that their young bosses were competent and capable in their positions.

 

Does age really matter? To me? Not yet. Ask me next year!
