Haydn Shaw Speaking Topics

LEADING ACROSS MULTIPLE GENERATIONS

He is the author of the bestselling training course Leading across Generations. His generational keynotes get people laughing at the generations so they quit complaining about the generations and start learning why the generations are different and how to turn those differences into productivity and sales. People often refer to his presentation on generations as one of the best speeches they have ever heard.

PRESENTATIONS INCLUDE

  • Leading Across Multiple Generations: Helping Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials Get Through Their Sticking Points Get Stuff Done

  • Leading the Millennials: Gaining, Training, and Retaining the Text Message Generation

  • Don't Miss Half Your Market: Selling to Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials

THE 6 CHANGE REACTIONS

Nothing is more frustrating or discouraging than trying to turn around negative environments or employees. This humorous keynote uses the metaphor of burping a baby to help leaders understand how to keep their teams from turning negative and what to do when they have already have. You’ll learn how to separate the dangerously negative people from the merely irritating, how to keep negative people from taking over your team, and how to move people through changes without letting the negative people take over.

PRODUCTIVITY

Productivity has two parts: how well the organization communicates priorities and how well individuals use their time. Most approaches just focus on individual time management. Haydn's productivity presentations do both: he helps leaders and managers get clear on how to get their people focused while also helping individuals manage their time and deal with the overwhelming flood of email, technology, and information.

Haydn Shaw travels from Chicago, where he lives in a multigenerational household with his Gen Xer wife, Laurie, his Traditionalist mother-in-law, his disabled Gen X brother-in-law, and his Millennial children.
