Fresh from Googleplex.

The SIY leadership program was developed at Google to help people find ways to flourish in an increasingly dynamic and demanding environment. SIY draws on neuroscience, and uses attention and mindfulness training, to help people build the emotional intelligence skills needed for sustained high performance, strong collaborations, and effective leadership.

The secret sauce.

SIY combines three disciplines in a unique, highly-interactive program designed to help you meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Emotional Intelligence

Workplace studies show that having strong emotional competencies predict employee performance, leadership effectiveness and wellbeing.

Neuroscience

Scientific studies indicate that how we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.

Mindfulness

Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that underpins personal growth, especially self-awareness, self-management, and relationship skills.

Leadership skills for the age of disruption.

The world is changing faster than most people can handle. More and more of us are feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and disengaged. How can leaders help their people be more productive, creative and innovative when they’re burning out themselves? SIY empowers leaders to thrive in the face of volatility and pressure. Learn skills essential for high performance, creativity, collaborating and for building healthy cultures.

What participants say about the program.

  • One of the many fantastic things about this approach to training and PD is that the skills and practices are transferable between work and personal life. I would highly recommend Craig and SIY to any organisation looking to deliver a multi-dimensional learning and development program.

    Madeleine Chiffey, Marketing Manager, Toyota
  • Craig's dynamic and interactive delivery had the audience highly engaged within minutes. He made the concepts simple, accessible and translatable and made a huge impression on our emergency department team. I wholeheartedly recommend this program

    Dr Shahina Braganza, Gold Coast Hospital - Emergency Department.
  • SIY has been the training highlight of the year at OMD and Craig and Jo’s facilitation shows them as masters of their craft. SIY exactly delivered on our belief in personal growth for our employees and all attendees have reported significant improvement in their professional and personal lives. SIY will now be an essential part of our training calendar for years to come.

    Martin Cowie, People and Development Director, OMD
  • SIY has had a tremendous impact on me and my team. We got to know ourselves and each other much better. We’re clearer, calmer and sharper for it and we’re playing together nicely. Many of the practices are now woven into our daily lives. Thank you Craig, I want to do it again.

About Craig Davis

Craig is a serial entrepreneur (having started or partnered in 11 ventures since university and having worked in 5 more), a creative industry leader, acclaimed CMO. and one of a select few Certified SIY Teachers in the world.

He grew up in small country towns and was a surprised and delighted, some years later, to be living and working all over the world as Chief Creative Officer for Saatchi & Saatchi Asia, and as the worldwide creative chief for J Walter Thompson. Craig helped global companies like Toyota, HSBC, Procter & Gamble, Coca Cola, Sony, Vodafone, PayPal, Virgin and Unilever, and win a shed-load of international awards (yes, his mum was very proud!). But this success came at a high price physically and emotionally and he decided to change direction to explore more ‘conscious’ ways of living and working.

Craig is a passionate believer in creating satisfying and sustainable business success and does his best to practice what he teaches. He is Co-Founder and CMO of digital disrupter Sendle, a technology startup taking on Australia Post by making parcel delivery simple, reliable and affordable for small and medium-sized businesses. Sendle has made the AFR’s list of Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Australia two years in a row, is Australia’s first certified technology B Corp, Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service, and a Telstra Business Award winner.

Craig has also been named as one of Australia’s Top 10 CMOs for each of the last two years. In his spare time he hang’s out with friends and family (wife and three teens), sails, surfs, rides, reads, blogs, meditates and does yoga, and he’s still the fastest Australian to run a marathon at the North Pole.

Besides that stuff, Craig is Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology Sydney’s Business School, a guest lecturer at UNSW, and a keynote speaker represented exclusively by Saxton.

He sees it as a privilege to teach SIY to some of Australia’s best-known and most progressive companies.
