Welcome to Saxus

Positively impacting retention, employee engagement, relationships, and customer experience.

Each one of these factors are heavily dependent on one thing: How well do people navigate the complex web of emotions that influence their every decision. An organization's emotional intelligence metrics are red-flag indicators of future performance.

Located just outside of Indianapolis, Saxus specializes in providing emotional intelligence-based solutions that help you be proactive while driving your business' culture forward.  Our mission is to bring the skills of positivity, happiness, and fulfillment to everyone.


With options for both small businesses and corporate clients, our flagship program, OEQ Development (Organizational Emotional Intelligence) is a 2-year progressive process that transforms the way your executive team looks at organizational growth and the human factor. OEQ, Development ensures that your organization is approaching every decision through the lense of emotional intelligence in order to positively impact retention, job satisfaction, engagement, culture, and customer experience.


If your group, team, or organization is looking for the next phase of personal and professional growth, Saxus Emotional Intelligence (EQ) training is the answer. EQ reduces the tendency to procrastinate, leads to improved self-confidence, and enables people to focus on achieving long-term goals. It is also crucial in interpersonal relationships and customer experience.  Because real change takes time, our EQ Mastery training is followed by a 6 month Personal Growth and Success Plan to ensure maximum results.

"With the public launch of the Mounds Lake project, we had a very large stakeholder group to whom to convey a great deal of information. Shawn Neal was instrumental by providing three public discussion events that allowed the community to gather to receive information and ask questions in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Shawn’s professionalism, coupled with his team’s technical experience, created great space to learn the details. They also streamed the meetings on the web which allowed our team members from across the country, as well as community members unable to attend, to listen in as the meetings progressed. Though history will write the outcome of our efforts, Shawn Neal provided the best possible public starting point."
