Title: Catalyzing the Wisdom of the Modern Elder in Your Company
Repurpose your lifetime of experience to evolve, stay relevant, and thrive in midlife.
In a world that venerates the new, bright, and shiny, older employees may feel invisible, undervalued, and threatened by the younger “digital natives” at work. However, Chip Conley, author of Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, believes that experience is making a comeback. Companies are waking up to the invaluable skills mid-career workers possess: humility, emotional intelligence (EQ) and wisdom. While digital intelligence (DQ) is highly prized in the modern workplace, it has a shorter shelf life than EQ, which never expires.
Join us as Chip ignites an urgent conversation about ageism in the workplace, calling on companies to treat age as they would any other diversity, and liberating the term “elder” from the stigma of “elderly,” inspiring organizations to reconsider an experienced workforce that is growing whole, not old. Chip is Airbnb’s Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership and the founder of the Modern Elder Academy.
