Does anyone else manage a team of people who are much older than you and feel that they do not respect your direction? I’m currently feeling some level of distrust from them when I give them my instructions, and now they are starting to circumventing me out of certain conversations by only speaking to the newer resource at my level. It’s annoying as I’m the one who’s been on this project much longer and has a better understanding of what is going on.

I am fairly green in academia (< 1 year) and I want to shift to an area of research which I always wanted to do but never could as a Ph.D. student (because of conflict of interest).
The issue I am facing is that due to lack of my documented research experience in this field (read, lack of papers) I am finding it very hard to land any grant and reviewers keep saying "The PI hasn't demonstrated any experience in said research" blah blah.
Any advice on how to overcome this?
