I report to two AE's right now, one for Mid-Market and one for Enterprise.
Our Mid-Market AE is circa early 30's, where our Enterprise is in his 50's.
I feel that it's easier for me to sync and collaborate with the younger AE as she's a little more proactive and up to date on certain prospecting skills such as social selling on linkedin. She takes the initiative to help me where I am lacking in skillset.
Whereas with the enterprise Rep, I can sometime feel intimidated knowing he has 25+ years experience in the industry, and it compounds when I'm bringing in good pipe for the mid-market but not so much in the enterprise.
Does anyone have any good advice on syncing with an older AE? Or has this got less to do with age and more to do with the individual?
