    Finding it very hard to take orders from a much younger person

    I am working in a MNC. i have been working in this company from the past 25 years. Now recently our boss has been changed and he is a much younger person than I had expected. As I am much older than him, I am finding it very difficult to take orders from him. How to deal with such a situation in life?

    Hi aspirant

    When suh challenges come in your life where you have to go out of your way to adjust then you should face them with courage and try your best to adjust to such situations. You should never hesitate or let your ego come in between which will not be good for your future. Always think about the consequences of your actions and then only take the important decisions in life. In this case as your new boss is much younger than you, then its your duty to make him feel comfortable and to respect him as you would have given to any other boss.

    Just try to see him as your boss and I am sure , you being much older than him, he will give you more respect in return. Don't hesitate to take orders from him and just to come to terms with the truth. You should not let anything come between you and your boss and as you know, should always maintain good relations with your boss. You can even make good friends with him if you show him how talented you are and how faithful you have been to this company from the past 25 years.

    I am sure friend you can definitely see him as your boss and give him respect. Good luck

    hiii,
    that must be a really difficult situation for you . but dont worry as you know you cant be the boss and he would not be changed even . so just take it as a challenge in your life. you are working from past 25 years . you have that quality , you can do it very well . while working do not consider his age while just focus on task given bt him as a boss and you must excell in all of them
    i am sure you would take it as a positive attitude in your life. just stay calm
    thanks
