good at one particular thing and remain equally competitive with their younger colleagues in an organization. Take advantage of greater personal mobility once the children have left home or are settled. This calls for flexibility and taking up of tasks they couldn’t do at a younger age. For instance, when setting up a company in a foreign country/opening a new outlet, it is essential to establish a workforce and it takes time. Such foreign assignments require flexibility and experience gained in service. Being innovative by initiating change and offering new opportunities to employees since people get bored of the same thing year after another. Seeking outlets for talents or aspects of their personality they haven’t had a chance to express .Most of these people are 40 or 50 years and this stage (midlife) is a time when parts of the self that were neglected bubble up creating room for creativity while the adventurous get a chance to enjoy stability.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
