Haydn Shaw is an author, speaker, consultant and coach who has over twenty-five years researching the generations and helping clients understand generational differences. He talks to Michael Cheuk about the recent update of his best-selling book Sticking Points: How to Get 5 Generations Working Together in the 12 Places They Come Apart. Even though this book is intended for a business audience, Shaw talks about how churches and coaches can help multi-generational teams and congregations move forward by learning about the 12 sticking points and implementing the five steps of working through each sticking point — acknowledging the common need, appreciating different perspectives, flexing, leveraging strengths, and resolving to determine which option will create the best results.
Haydn Shaw has researched and helped clients regarding generational differences for over 20 years. He is the author of Sticking Points, Generational IQ: Christianity Isn’t Dying, Millennials aren’t the Problem, and the Future is Bright, and Franklin Covey’s bestselling workshops “Leading Across Generations and Working Across Generations.” He also writes on generations and leadership for the Huffington Post.
Hailed as a leadership guru by the Washington Post, Haydn speaks to and consults with clients in excess of 160 days each year, clients who consistently invite him back. He blogs about generations and other leadership topics at mygenerationalcoach.com. Haydn travels from Chicago, where he lives in a multigenerational household with his family.
