(1)“If you’re good enough, you’re old enough,” a team manager once said when giving Michael Oven, a first world-class goal scorer, his first international game at the age of 18. Is the same true in business?

(2)Young executives come back from business schools armed with big ideas. But these may or may not win support from colleagues.

So what are the practical steps young manages need to take in order to be welcomed?

(3)“The biggest challenge is the basic lack of experience,” says Steve Newhall, a management consultant. “This will affect how other people see you. You have got to have confidence in your ability to do the job. But remember that people around you may not share that opinion.”

(4)Young managers need to recognize their own weaknesses – and then do something about them. “You will need a good mentor straight away,” says Mr. Newhall, “someone who has plenty of experience and who gives you support and plenty of good advice.”

Some advice:

· (5)Act your age. Don’t try to look older than you are.

· (6)Avoid favoritism and cliques. Leaders win respect by treating people the same.

· (7)Build coalitions right away. Show your colleagues that you’re aware of your limited experience. And show that you’re interested in getting advice, too.

· (8)Keep a cool head even when you are under a lot of pressure. Some colleagues will expect you to crack. Don’t give them that satisfaction.

· (9)Show respect to older colleagues. They have seen many young ambitious people come and go. Draw on their experience.

· (10)Find the right balance between being enthusiastic and being over-confident. You have been selected for your youth and energy – draw on it. But don’t overdo it.
