Hospitality entrepreneur Chris Conley introduces the concept of the “modern elder” – that is, mid- to late-life workers who stay relevant by wedding wisdom with a willingness to learn from and mentor younger generations. Although power is shifting to the young, the wisdom that comes with age is regaining value. Executives, hiring managers and midlife workers fearing that their value comes with an expiration date will appreciate Conley’s engaging, sage advice.
In this summary, you will learn
Why the exchange of intergenerational wisdom is essential to the success of the modern workplace,
Why ageism is especially harmful now that five generations coexist in the workplace and
What traits typify the “modern elder.”
