A surprising study, out of a leading university in Israel, found that the best managers are in their 50’s. They have the maturity, experience and perspective to lead.
What 50 year-old on your team have you been overlooking because you thought they were over the hill? Take a second look. Need stability? Need someone to think before they act? You may have an undiscovered jewel in your presence.
It won’t work every time and sometimes new, young blood is best. But if you are discounting those who are aging you might be settling for second best!
