3 tips on how to manage someone older than you

first_imgThe millennial workforce is typically described one of two ways. They are either characterized as a segment of job-hoppers who lack motivation, or as entitled and unappreciative “brats.” In most cases, these stereotypes couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, many in this generation are highly successful and garner professional accomplishments at a young age.In some organizations, millennials are hired into management positions; this can prove difficult for certain employees when their manager is younger. On the other hand, for the new millennial manager, it can be a challenge leading older employees who feel resentment toward them or who are understandably skeptical of the new leader’s abilities.If you’re a leader who’s found yourself managing employees older than yourself, here are three tips to effectively manage your workforce.Make connectionsGet to know each and every member of your team on an individual basis. Connect with them and demonstrate that you care about them and their job performance. Show that you are on their side and are there to help and support them. Giving them that confidence will encourage open communication and will help to foster positive rapport.Keep collaboratingIsolating yourself from your team will only lead to them feeling like they can’t approach you. Employees that are older than you have life and work experiences they can share to help everyone in the organization be successful, including you. Collaborate with them and encourage them to be creative. The more you communicate with them and work with them, the more useful and valued they will feel.Be the bossThe bottom line is you’re the boss and your employees need to treat you with respect. To garner the appreciation you expect and deserve, always carry yourself with confidence. Don’t underestimate yourself just because of your age. You’ve been placed in your position for a reason and your skills, work ethic, and talents will speak for themselves. 98SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

Ferdinand seals QPR move

first_img “I spoke to Harry and (owner Tony) Mr Fernandes at length,” he told qpr.co.uk. “I think they both looked me in the eye and knew that I still have something to offer – that I had a genuine desire to come here and play football.” Following punditry work with BBC Sport at the World Cup, Ferdinand’s anticipated move to Loftus Road was completed on Thursday evening after he passed a medical. Ferdinand, whose younger brother Anton and cousin Les also had spells at QPR, had been linked with a move to west London some weeks ago before a hold-up believed to be caused by a wrangling over wages. But now that has been ironed out Ferdinand is looking forward to playing for a team he used to watch growing up. “There are great memories for me here – for my family,” he said. “Anton had nothing but good things to say about QPR and I watched Les here as a boy, with the likes of Ray Wilkins, Clive Wilson, David Bardsley and Alan McDonald. “I had a lot of offers from all over the world – some in places with a better climate than here. But the draw for me was to play in the Premier League and back here where it all started. The 35-year-old left Old Trafford at the end of his contract this summer following a trophy-laden 12 years with the Red Devils and will now remain in the Barclays Premier League as he looks to help keep the Hoops in the top flight. Ferdinand will also be reunited with Harry Redknapp at Loftus Road after the current QPR boss handed him his professional debut for West Ham as a 17-year-old in 1996, and the veteran defender is eager to prove he still has something to offer. Former Manchester United and England captain Rio Ferdinand has signed for QPR on a one-year deal. Press Association “It’s not about money – I had loads of more lucrative offers available to me. I still feel I’ve got something to offer and I’m excited about helping this club cement its place in the Premier League.” After establishing himself as a firm favourite at Upton Park, Ferdinand moved to Leeds in 2000 for a then-British transfer record of £18million. He was an integral part of David O’Leary’s young side that reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2001 and was installed as captain at Elland Road the following season. During his time in West Yorkshire, Ferdinand became an England regular and attracted the attention of Manchester United following an impressive showing at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. Another big fee, reported to be almost £30million, saw Ferdinand move across the Pennines where he would go on to make over 450 appearances and win six Premier League titles, the Champions League, two League Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup. Ferdinand spent eight months on the sidelines in 2004 for missing a drugs test, sitting out the 3-0 FA Cup final success over Millwall and the entire Euro 2004 tournament. Having been named England captain in early 2010, Ferdinand missed out on leading Fabio Capello’s side in the 2010 World Cup due to a knee injury sustained in the build-up to the tournament. He announced his international retirement in May 2013 and went on to play one more season at United, making 23 appearances in a disappointing campaign for the Red Devils. Interim manager Ryan Giggs selected Ferdinand for the final-day draw at Southampton, with the defender announcing soon afterwards that he would be looking for a new club. Linking up with Redknapp always appeared to be a strong possibility and the R’s boss is delighted to be able to work with Ferdinand again. “Rio’s a fantastic player and a great professional, I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring him here,” he said. “I signed Rio as a 14-year-old. He was class on the field and off the field then, and he’s continued in that manner throughout his career. During his time at Manchester United, he was the best defender in Europe, if not the world. “To bring him to QPR, when he’s still got so much to offer in terms of his quality, class, experience and know-how, is a remarkable coup for the club.” last_img read more

The ref could be heard telling Paul, “You can’t do that s—.”As you can tell by the scorecard, those two points were critical in the final decision as this nearly ended in another draw.

The YouTube star said he was going to challenge the decision to the commission.While KSI says he’s done with Logan Paul, Jake Paul mentioned before the fight he wants to take on KSI. Jake Paul said he’s turned professional, so don’t be surprised if some sort of fight with the younger brother takes place in the near future.MORE: Watch the full fight replay, plus behind-the-scenes with KSI and Logan Paul, on DAZNLogan Paul vs. KSI 2 highlightsLogan Paul vs. KSI 2 scorecardLogan Paul vs. KSI 2 round-by-round resultsEnd of the fightKSI won via split decision with the judges ruling:56-55 – Logan Paul57-54 – KSI56-55 – KSI Paul’s two-point deduction in Round 4 (which can be viewed below) proved critical in the end. After the fight, KSI and Paul hugged each other.”You are one of the toughest people I know. As much s— as I talk, I don’t like being a dick to you,” Paul said after the match. He added that his harsh language to KSI leading up to the fight was for show, and he genuinely respects KSI.Round 6KSI was able to land a few solid jabs in this round. But as was the case in the first fight, both fighters looked tired by the time the final round came. The announcers claimed “a draw” didn’t seem too far off, which as we know was the result of the first fight. This will be a very close one.Round 5Both fighters are definitely tired at this point, but Paul was able to land a few solid jabs in this round. Paul has looked better in the later rounds after KSI looked strong in the initial rounds. Only one more three-minute round remains in this fight.Not much action in this round, overall.Round 4According to Sporting News’ Andreas Hale, a “F— you Logan” chant has broken out within the arena.With 42 seconds left in the round, KSI took a solid uppercut to the chin and went down. But KSI was also hit while he was down, so the referee rewarded Paul with a knockdown but docked two points from him. A critical decision in what’s been a close fight so far.With just a few rounds left, KSI looks gassed.Round 3Logan Paul went down to the ground for a brief moment in this round, but got right back up. The commentators alleged he was hit in the back of the head by KSI. Replay later on confirmed Paul was hit, and the commentators said it should be ruled as a knockdown. The referee, however, said it was not a knockdown. Paul went down again later, but that was an obvious slip.Round 2KSI landed twice as many jabs in the second round, according to DAZN’s telecast. KSI landed 41% of his punches while Logan Paul landed 31%.Both fighters were swinging for the fences, as it looks like they’re aiming for a knockout. But swinging this much will tire them both. Luckily for them, there are only six rounds, so low stamina will only be a storyline for so long. Round 1The fight has officially started.KSI had some big swings at Paul, but many of them weren’t able to land. Neither fighter was able to really land a huge punch on the other, but it was still an entertaining first round. KSI was breathing heavily after the first round, leading to some questions about his stamina. The first fight saw both fighters get tired at the end, so it’ll definitely be something worth monitoring throughout the next five rounds.Pre-fightThe undercard fights took longer than we anticipated, but the main event is finally here.Logan Paul comes out wearing an American flag outfit.

“Abandon Lawsuit,” UP Executive Dunah Advises His Party

first_imgDistrict #7 Representative Worlea-Saywah Dunah – Advertisement – Nimba County District #7 Representative and executive member of the ruling Unity Party (UP), Worlea-Saywah Dunah, seems not to be happy with the political collaboration between the UP and the Liberty Party (LP) of Cllr. Charles W. Brumskine, and therefore wants UP to abandon the lawsuit.The UP is serving as an intervening collaborator in the case between the Liberty Party and the NEC on alleged gross irregularities and fraud that the LP believes marred the October 10 presidential and representative elections. But according to the Nimba County lawmaker, the UP’s decision to join the LP in the legal case did not meet the consensus of all members of its executives.It is no secret that Dunah has neither been a fan nor a friend of the LP or its political leader, and once indicated that the party has lost relevance in Liberian politics.Dunah, who has always been loyal to the UP, said the LP finished third in 2005 and fourth in 2011, adding that the party was not progressing, proving that it has lost relevance in Liberian politics.Dunah said he was forced to use the media to tell the UP to withdraw the case from the court on grounds that since the first round of the elections, UP executives have failed to meet and take a decision as a party, alleging that a few executive members are making decisions for the party.“We have applied every effort to talk with the party chair, but he has failed to respond to our request and the only means now is to use the media,” Dunah said.He said as an executive member of the UP, he heard about the party’s decision to go to court in the media without meeting all members of the executive committee, the youth league and other elected officials.Dunah said it is necessary that UP withdraws the lawsuit from both the Supreme Court and the National Elections Commission in the shortest possible time to bring the electoral crisis to an end, adding that the court action does not reflect the views of the party.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
