A new paradigm for older workers

This is both good news and bad news for organizational leaders: good because older workers are valuable employees, bad because many organizations don't know what to do with older workers as they seek to increase opportunities for talented younger employees. Traditionally, retirement has been a mechanism for turning over the labor pool. But for many baby boomer workers, retirement is not the enticing prospect it once was.

Unconventional behaviors of inspiring leaders
There are very few great managers. And even fewer great leaders. Making your team happy by displaying behaviors that are expected from you as a manager is hard. But it is even harder to inspire people to follow you, especially if you don't have direct authority over them. Leaders are not always perfect. And, sometimes, they are downright quirky. But they display a set of behaviors that make them admired and loved.
