Should you invest in training someone based on their age?  They say you can’t teach an “old dog” new tricks.  In this video Wayne Berry talks about the wisdom or not or investing in staff who are over 55, 60 or heavens above…65.  Apart from it likely being against labor laws today to discriminate against someone based on their age, it’s also unwise.  So Wayne talks about Sales Managers who sometimes says “He or she is a bit too old to do this training.  They are just too old to change their ways and learn new strategies”.  Similarly what about the person who says that of themselves?  What’s the truth here?
