The greatest challenge for any leader is to get the best from the people around them and the greatest reward is to see them perform at their best.
Leaders create the team they deserve and to get the best team possible, they must understand themselves, their own behaviour, and their triggers in stressful situations. Only then can they hope to build a safe culture to effectively lead others.
This programme combines our understanding of biology, neuroscience and metaphysics to challenge current thinking and to develop your true leadership potential.
In nature our brain brings us together to help us all survive, but when we feel threatened within the group, our brain will take steps to protect us and that can be to the detriment of others around us!
Do any of these sound familiar?
Our approach to leadership is based on the need for leaders to be in their “Ideal Positive State” in order to lead effectively, make clear decisions and provide a safe environment for others, so they can be productive. The problem that leaders, as well as those around them, face in the workplace is constant change, too much work, not enough time, poor communication and inadequate resources, all of which increase levels of stress.
Stress puts us into two different states: “Acute Transitional” (commonly known as fight or flight) and “Chronic Negative”, both of which make people unpleasant to work alongside, creating environments where no one feels safe to say what they really think and making them much less productive.
The challenge for all leaders is identifying their “Ideal Positive State” and how they keep themselves and everyone around them in that state. This approach to leadership builds a leader’s awareness of all the states and why people transition from one state to the next. It also equips them with tools to “Shift” back to their ideal and most productive selves.
We have the brain of a hunter-gatherer whose sole mission is to survive. We look into how in this modern world, more often than not, this works against us.
Science has made huge advances in what we know about our brains. As a leader you need to understand some of that wiring in order to better connect with your team.
Stress is meant to be a way to survive but our brains cannot distinguish between real danger (a bear) or perceived danger (a boss). Learn to help your team avoid or deal with stress.
Oxytocin is a hormone that rewards us for coming together to help each other, it is also the same hormone that drives us apart. Learn how to combat the negative effect of oxytocin.
You can't lead people you don't like, to like someone you need to understand their story. Only then can you hope to communicate effectively and lead your team.
How can a leader stay in their "ideal state" to lead effectively? Learn to use the tools that will have you shift from acute and/or chronic negative states to your positive ideal state.
Everything about a team is based on trust. Learn the 5 dysfunctions that ruin teams and what you need to do to overcome them.
One of the biggest issues in work today is reducing burnout in teams whilst keeping them engaged. Great leaders develop an environment that does both.

Our next leadership programme is being run over 10 months from February to November 2020 at the beautiful Waipuna Estate. This calm and natural environment is the perfect setting to create a “Safe” place for our leaders to explore their own behaviours, talk about their own challenges and get to the bottom of the thoughts behind their triggers. They can then create and share strategies that work in leading their people.
Presented by Dave Sewell, this programme is guaranteed to challenge your thinking and grow you as a leader so that you can grow a stronger team. Most importantly, you will make new friends and have a circle of leaders around you that you can rely on for their experience and wisdom as you navigate your own road in leadership.
The programme comes with all the presentations (with notes) a full set of workbooks that capture your own thoughts and insights along the way and a copy of Safe Leadership – beating stress to drive performance, so you can develop your teams in-house.
Or pay in advance for the entire programme for $4,500 + GST per person
