“ I looked at books from ten generational experts and we brought in Haydn to our partners because he went beyond the research and creating awareness and had a practical process for helping people working through generational differences. It made an impact and now we have recorded him in a webinar we are sharing throughout the organization. ”
Joy Koch, Senior Director RSM US LLP

We know how hard it is to navigate generational differences and have helped hundreds of large and small businesses, government, non-profit and religious organizations figure out and solve their generational problems. And when you learn what your people really think about your generational sticking points and get past their generational biases or preferences, your generational differences start working for you. Your team members know how to relate to all five generations and you better connect with your customers.

Haydn Shaw has spoken to and consulted with organizations for two decades. After his first boss used generational differences to throw him under the bus with the board, he started researching generational differences and hasn’t stopped for thirty years.

He has spoken to and consulted with 1500 organizations so he isn’t a researcher in an ivory tower. He helps organizations shake up their generational stereotypes, apply the Leading Generations process, and then fix their generational problems. Hundreds of Haydn’s clients have stopped being beaten down by generational sticking points and learned how to leverage them into better teams after learning the framework.

When you hire Haydn to speak, you will:

  1. Shake up the generational stereotypes that block your people or members from seeing results.
  2. Learn the five-step process that helps managers and team members lead through 80% of their generational difference right now, next year and in ten years.
  3. Apply this new insight and five-step process to your organization’s or members’ specific generational sticking points. We roll up our sleeves and help you cut turnover, hire better, transfer knowledge, motivate and manage different generations. Or sell more because you talk the language of other generations more accurately.

When you hire Haydn to consult he helps you do this. You don’t get someone trained by Haydn, you get Haydn. He makes sure your people are telling you what they really think about generations and not what they think you want to hear. He sticks with you until you see better results with your generational problems.



Haydn Shaw has helped managers and organizations raise their generational IQ so they can deal with the multigenerational workforce for over twenty-five years. He is the author of Sticking Points: How to Get 4 Generations Working Together in the 12 Places They Come Apart and the best-selling workshop Leading Across Generations and Working Across Generations. He also writes on generations and leadership for the Huffington Post.

TIME wrote, “Shaw is an expert on cultural differences at the office.” He has spoken to over 100,000 people and worked with more than 1,500 businesses (from Fortune 500 companies to start ups), not-for-profit organizations, and governmental agencies. The results from his long term organizational development and change projects have been written up in case studies. His simple process helps organizations cut generational turnover, get serious about knowledge transfer before the boomers head out the door, and quit losing sales because they don’t know how to speak the language of their customers.

Hailed as a “leadership guru” by the Washington Post, Haydn speaks and consults over 100 days each year to clients who invite him back.

Known for taking groups from hilarity to deep reflection, he combines rich content with use-tomorrow tools. His work makes an impact because he does his homework, customizing each speech so that they drive results. Haydn connects with virtually any group in any industry, and brings practical and inspiring examples from the boardroom and the front line.
