Company History

Haydn has been an employee of FranklinCovey since 1992 where he speaks, trains, and consults on generations, leadership, management, trust, and productivity.

In 2008, FranklinCovey licensed Haydn’s research on generations and asked him to write their generational workshops. In addition, they allowed him to begin a separate company through which he speaks on generations and change management and offers his 6 Change Reactions workshops. This unusual relationship with a full-time employee is a classic example of how FranklinCovey lives what they teach about win-win relationships. (Learn more about this arrangement)
