AnsweredHey Jeff, from all of the articles I've read that you posted , you seem to know how to handle a work environment that may be a little less then "sufficient". I am a young salesmen in a industry full of geriatrics. The youngest gentleman in my office, with the exception of me, is 53 years old. I have a manager that seems to "look down" upon me for my age. Almost as if hes betting against me and hopes he bet the right way. I really enjoy this job, and the opportunity especially for a kid of my age, is amazing to say the least. Im writing to you today to see if you may have any insight on what i can do to better my relationship with my manager. He's a bit "old school" in that hes very stubborn, and its his way or the highway. Also he seems to be the guy who will put the failure all on you, even if he had some doing in the task. Can you give me some pointers on how to handle an individual like this, so i can improve my relationship with him, as well as raising our office chemistry. I want to be able to come to the job i love and have a positive chemistry with everyone to not only benefit my sales, but those of everyone around me. Thank you Jeff!
