Learning and Leading with the Top Sixty Over Sixty


Building custom solutions to fit your business

Innovation is a driver of change and success in organizations today, however, without a healthy, diverse workforce, creativity is stifled and innovation stagnates. T60 is an organisational and workforce development consultancy. We work with employers and individuals to understand and adapt to the ageing of the workforce and population.

T60 works with organizations to effect change in their work environment by acknowledging and celebrating diversity. Top Sixty specializes in tapping into the strengths of a varied aged workforce to create dynamic, creative, intergenerational teams and advises on how to attract a diversely aged clientele.

With more than 50 years of collective experience in educating and motivating individuals of all ages, T60 provides the advice and insights needed to build a positive and productive work culture.

Top Sixty consultation services include:

  • Leveraging the talents of all generations in a workforce (Organizational Culture)
  • Leadership and Team Effectiveness
  • Reciprocal Mentorship
  • Advice on attracting an age diverse clientele.

Using research-based methodologies and proprietary tools recognized around the world to develop individual and group strengths, we provide recommendations on the strategies organizations need to succeed.



Top Sixty facilitated workshops are focused on building the competencies of an entrepreneurial mindset. When these compentencies, such as coping with uncertainty, ambiguity and risk are strong, they reduce resistance to new ideas and allow for better communication and problem solving. Ageism is a social problem that thrives when communication and cooperation between ages is low. All workshops are based in research & best practice and use a design thinking approach to ensure engagement and inspiration. 

Workshops are available in a full day format; however alternate options of delivery are available. Please contact us about customizing to meet your needs.



This strategic course provides insights and tools for intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs to help them maintain their career momentum. Using best practices from research in psychometrics, change management, design thinking and resilience training, participants will learn how to take initiative, spot opportunity and engage in creative problem-solving processes. ReSet provides a practical guide to bolstering strengths and enhancing the benefits of experience.

Functional Creativity

Many people believe that creativity is a talent, something you are born with rather than a skill that can be learned and refined. In this workshop, myths about what it means to be creative are dispelled and participants are given practical exercises that can be used to enhance lateral or divergent thinking. You’re never too old to get creative and never too young to expand your imagination.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Understand the role of culture and environment in encouraging or stifling creativity.
  • Develop a creative lens.
  • Use daily exercises to help stay creative and get inspired.
  • Brainstorm effectively as an individual or as a group.
  • Practice the use of visuals to support idea development.
  • Develop inspiration boards to brainstorm or to visualize a project.

Every problem is an opportunity for an innovative solution. In this workshop, participants will learn critical thinking skills that will allow them to assess, address and take action to solve problems. They will learn how to solve problems as a team or as an individual.
