Over a decade of experience in training and consulting has led us to develop Saxus Immersive Training Experience (S.I.T.E.) Training model.  SITE Training creates an immersive and experiential training environment that brings participants into the training experience.  Rather than memorizing answers, participants have the opportunity to explore their own belief systems, emotions, and core-values and then make appropriate decisions and responses.

Exceptional leaders understand people and purpose.  Saxus is dedicated to teaching the art of leadership through emotional intelligence and well-being (positivity), as well as more complex leadership skills such as right-vs-right decisions and Janusian thinking.


Throughout the years, organizational leadership training has typically focused on teaching the attributes of a good leader. The 4Core Leadership Training model goes the next step. It has been developed by Shawn Neal and the team at Saxus over a 6 year period with one goal: to actively and effectively bring participants into a deep, mindful understanding of leadership through an immersive learning environment, propelling them from good to exceptional.

4Core is made up of 4 components that develop good leaders into exceptional ones. While in this training experience, participant's will navigate through discussions that will challenge them to understand, experience, and practice integral leadership concepts such as Emotional Intelligence (EQ), happiness, self-perception, core values and beliefs.

Core 1: Self Perception

Effective leaders have a solid and positive self-perception. They know what their value system is, they have a solid belief system, and therefore they lead with integrity. Through guided discussion, participants in a 4Core Training program will explore their own value and belief systems and then practice new behaviors and making mindful decisions based on those discoveries. Participants explore things such as self narration, the effects of language, and the rebuilding of negative self perception to positive. This allows leaders to more accurately and authentically live into their leadership role..


Core 2: Emotional Intelligence

By bringing participants into an understanding of emotional intelligence, we can begin to look at real-life situations and how our emotions affect decisions.  Explored in an experiential learning environment, emotions can be thought through and behaviors can be modified to create more positive outcomes.


Core 3: High-Level Decision Making

When push comes to shove, decision making is the ultimate mode of action. When leaders are faced with difficult decisions, right-vs-right decisions, or ethical and moral dilemmas, it’s imperative that they have the mind to utilize all resources, access the situation, and make a mindful decision that will drive the organization and its’ people forward. Core 3 helps participants focus and find confidence when they need it most.


Core 4: Positive Psychology

The field of Positive Psychology has a rich history, but became most notable in 1998 when Martin Seligman, at the time of his inauguration as the president of the American Psychological Association (APA), declared that psychologists need to study what makes happy people happy! The 4th and final core component of the 4Core Training model is to learn in the spirit and application of the principles of positive psychology and well-being.
