Managing People Who Are Older Than You in an Indian Workplace

Jul 19 202112m listen time


“Good morning, Sir” – is a greeting you probably wouldn’t expect to hear around the office in the 21st century, but in some Indian workplaces this is still the norm. However, unlike the past, bosses these days are no longer by default the oldest person in the room, and things can get awkward real fast if you’re the young boss managing much older employees. Samar Singh, former CMO at United Breweries Ltd, has been on both sides of this situation, and explains how you can play to cultural expectations of respect for your elders without losing your authority.

Gain Actionable Insights Into:

  • Samar’s strategies for winning over an employee unwilling to accept a manager younger than them
  • Why asserting your dominance is never the way forward and can ruin relationships for good
  • The mindset older employees with younger bosses should embrace to thrive in this brave, new world
