Title: The Perception of Younger and Older Leaders
Author: Hait, Hadas
Abstract: The purpose of this literature review was to compile relevant literature on the intersection of leadership and age differences. This review further established that social identity theory, and the identification of oneself by means of in and outgroup is significant to workplace dynamics. These group identities further support the creation of perceptions about ‘the other’ which may result in stereotypes and may in turn lead to poor behaviours towards members of other groups, performance and even actual conflict. Certainly, additional research is required to establish the degree of these perceptional effects on leadership within organizations, yet, as outlined in this review, organizations have the power to manage these through positive organizational practices such as; honest conversations, shared experiences, mentorship and coaching.
