How to Manage a Team of Older Employees

How to Manage a Team of Older Employees | Happy working | Scoop.it

Whether you've been hired into a leadership position at an existing business or are making a new wave of hires at your startup, you're bound to face a situation that can fill young managers with anxiety: you'll have to manage people older than you.

 

Whether it's just a few years' difference or you find yourself with direct reports your parents' age, it's understandable that managing outside your peer group might make you uncomfortable. The key to succeeding while managing older employees might be to make sure that lack of comfort never sees the light of day.

It's not that different from managing anybody else.

Unplug, Disconnect & Relax

Unplug, Disconnect & Relax | Happy working | Scoop.it
These days technology is all pervasive, unavoidable even, and we are grateful. It has made it simple to get things done from anywhere in the world. It is hard to imagine going back to the way things were before smartphones.

It would indeed be hard to imagine going back to a life before smartphones.  A life with fewer distractions.  A time when text and Twitter alerts did not even exist.

 

Expedia suggests we all need to take a break once in awhile "to stay healthy, take stock of our life, and reconnect to the present." And they've created an infographic to help us remember to disconnect and relax -- especially during the holidays.

Have you ever asked yourself why you work so hard?  As you consider work-life balance, now is not the time to stop asking questions.

 

While balance means something different for everyone, if you are feeling less satisfied in your life, it's time to examine why.  Do you feel as if you are spending more time in one aspect of your life to the detriment of another?  Many of us are "concerned about the scales tilting too heavily into the work realm, at the cost of not having a satisfying non-work life."

 

If this is the case for you, you need to deeply understand what motivates you to work so hard.  Are you seeking a sense of accomplishment?  Do you feel you need to reach certain financial goals?  Do you crave a certain lifestyle?

 

Often times, asking "why" questions will show you that you are working hard as a way to fulfil a perception of how things "should" be.  "In a culture where we are constantly being bombarded with information and images, it's easy to get caught up in this idea."

Too often people get caught up in trying to "balance" their life.  But really "balance" is for the birds!  Consider what it means to be "in balance" - once balanced nothing is moving!  My life was and is neer so peaceful - and static!  Personaly I see life as more of a dynamic equilibrium, in a constant state of flux but overall considering all areas and ignoring none. At any given time you may put more emphasis on one area over another but in the long run - it all "balances" out.

Employee turnover or employee churn rates have started to grow like never before. Technology has brought us all these new benefits and easy solutions but it also brought major challenges. This is one of these challenges for HR specialists, who are desperately trying to find new ways of retaining and engaging their talent.
