I am looking for a few smart and interesting folks to interview for a book I am working on called
Hip and Sage: A baby boomer's guide to staying hip in the workplace.
Get nimble and allow your inner sage to shine in new ways.
Hip and Sage - cool title, don't you think?
Hip and sage people are wise and revered by young and old people alike. They actively seek to work with younger generations and welcome change and progress. Heck, they often drive change. They ask lots of questions and are always eager to learn and grow.
Are you hip and sage (be at least 50 years old, please)? If so, would you be willing to answer a few questions? Send me an email (lhaneberg AT gmail DOT com).
Do you know someone who is hip and sage? If so, please share this request with him or her and suggest he or she drop me an email to arrange for an interview (lhaneberg AT gmail DOT com).
I would also like to hear feedback from professionals in their 20s and 30s. Please send me an email (lhaneberg AT gmail DOT com) answering the following questions:
1. What are the biggest mistakes older managers make in the workplace when they try to get the best work out of younger workers?
2. What qualities do you most admire in your older co-workers?
