As a young manager, I find it difficult to manage older employees.  When I first became a manager, one of the very first challenges I encountered was giving an employee feedback. The reason why this was such a challenge was because this particular employee used to be the manager of my department, and now reports directly to me. I was providing this employee feedback on how to complete a process more efficiently. It was an awkward and uncomfortable conversation for both myself and the employee. While it was challenging for me to provide feedback to this employee, it was clear that it was equally challenging for her to receive it.  Providing training programs that not only identify the types of employees one will have as a manager, as well as taking that training further by learning from and understanding your employees, will create a respectful workplace environment.  Mutual respect is the key to learning how to effectively manage a multi-generational workforce.
