A few years ago I wrote an article on LinkedIn - Age vs. Expertise: Survival Tips for the Young Trainer about the challenges I experienced being a young T and D professional. I'm looking to update the article with new challenges and solutions used by others in the field.
Some things I'd like to delve into are:
- Building your credibility within the organization
- Gaining recognition as an expert in your field
- Peronal experiences of ageism
- Words of wisdom for any young professional walking into the Training and Development field
I'd love to hear your experiences and ideas on thriving in a field where age so often determines whether others deem you an expert.
