Does anyone have any experience managing people older than them? I've recently been promoted and like to think that I'm fairly good at my job. I am managing people who are significantly older than I am and are VERY stuck in their ways which is causing frictions trying to implement change. Anyone any tips? - I'm a fairly authoritative person and do take the time to get to know people.....do all HoD's continuously get this much opposition/aggravation thrown at them?
