Seniors are old people of the company who have worked for a longer tenure, have more experience and also tend to be at a post higher than yours. You don’t need to race with them, rather learn from them. If a senior takes you as an assistant, his approach might be completely different from yours. You might not agree, but if it does right do not forget to appreciate him for his spectacular work, encourage him if it doesn’t and adore him for his knowledge. We might not be perfect but by appreciation we do tend to make the person comfortable and at home with incidences that take place in board meetings.
