When Chip Conley started at Airbnb at the age of 52, he brought with him decades of experience as a top executive in the hotel industry. Conley quickly realized, however, that he had a lot to learn to about life at a tech startup where he was twice the age of most employees. He joins us to share his insights on ageism in Silicon Valley, how boomers and millennials can learn from one another and his forthcoming book, "Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder."
