TRAINING OUTLINE: SUMMARY
Set the foundations for collaborative genius.
Engage the collective brain, design better solutions
Don’t leave performance to chance, plan for peak performance.
Lead change, avoid drift and have everyone in the Waka
This is an intensive and highly practical training, which in essence teaches you many of the tools and strategies I’ve used as a coach and trainer over the last seventeen years, working with over seventy organisations. On this training you will grow your knowledge of the brain and leadership extensively, create your own action plan to enhance collaboration, learn strategies to engage the ‘collective brain’ and walk away with four practical tools to use with your team now and into the future.
TRAINING DAY 1: COLLABORATION
Setting the foundations for collaborative genius.
Neuroscience of Collaboration
Identify the essential principles of collaboration, the neuroscience behind each and which principles to focus on to improve how your team works and achieves together.
Leverage Diverse Thinking
People think differently, and so channel that diversity into creativity – and away from conflict – via a simple set of team agreements and coaching questions.
Avoid collaboration dynamics that operate on a win-lose or harsh exchange basis. Instead establish collaborative relationships based on setting each other up to succeed and delivering on practical needs.
Tool: Executive Summary Stand-Up Tool
Take this comms tool back to your team to get everybody on the same page quickly and effectively. Increase focus, cohesion and the cross-pollination of ideas.
TRAINING DAY 2: SOLUTION-FOCUS
Focus your team on what’s possible and resolve what’s not working.
Setting a Team Solution Focus
Understand what neuroscience has taught us about solution focus and reflect in how you lead your team and what you expect from them.
Structure team meetings to focus on solutions and avoid getting derailed by detail and drama. Master the art of facilitation to make meetings more meaningful and achieve positive outcomes.
Tool: The Six-Step Solution Process
Learn the ‘Six-step Solution Process’ to enable creative problem-solving, engage the collective-brain and get to solutions faster.
TRAINING DAY 3: PERFORMANCE
Don’t leave performance to chance, plan for peak performance
Peak Performance Planning
Measure your team against six key focus areas that are crucial for peak-performance, and design real-world strategies to lift performance where needed.
With a focus on delivery, use a tool from sports psychology to identify interference and then game-plan to remove it.
Tool: Performance Feedback
Take the sting out of performance feedback and use a light structure for the tougher conversations, where your team take the lead on making improvements.
TRAINING DAY 4: CHANGE
Lead change, avoid drift and have everyone in the Waka
Communicate to Create Certainty
With change comes uncertainty. Learn key principles to offset that uncertainty and communicate to build trust and momentum.
Tool: Known Unknowns
Navigate and lead your team through times of change by facilitating the ‘Known Unknowns’ exercise. Establish common knowledge and set actions to get through change and safeguard performance.
When leading change, align how you think with what you say and do, to deliberately model the right kind of change behaviours.
Present the case for change via a communication model grounded in neurolinguistics. Share your vision of what could be, the value and road to getting there. Invite curiosity and enrol your team.

QUALITY, NO COMPROMISE.
We understand how the brain learns and so we structure our trainings to ensure quality. This means the approach taken is more comprehensive and designed for life-long learning as opposed to 'tick-box-leadership-training'.
No Half Haircuts
Squeezing our bigger trainings into half-the-time, is a little like giving someone half a haircut. We just wouldn't do it! The brain is complex, sustainable results require a comprehensive approach that understands how the brain wires new information.
No Broad Brush
Broad brush leadership trainings attempt to cover too many themes and lack depth, meaning the application gets lost. Our trainings focus on specific leadership themes, so we can deep-dive into skills, methodology and robust application.
No One Gets Lost
Our open trainings have a maximum of twelve people on them, so no one gets 'lost in the crowd' and everyone gets the space to deepen their learning, have their needs met and engage fully in the training.
How people describe Communication Leadership training.
An addictive and sumptuous mind explosion, Sav [David Savage] is a master at helping people to realise and reach their potential.
Recognising the leadership role that today’s Project Managers have, we commissioned a fusion of David's trainings to run in-house for 43 Managers. The feedback has been exceptional and the results immediate.

David Savage is a compelling, approachable, effective leadership trainer, one who I can only recommend and do so without hesitation or doubt. I hope to work with David again.

Why four days?
How is the training structured?
1: Science base – You’ll hear the science behind each part of the content, not so much to feel lectured and academically drowned, but just enough to add to your insights and relate what you hear to your real life experience.
2. Form – As a leadership specialist, my training also includes Neuro Linguistics and brain-based training methodology. Broken down, it means I train according to how the brain learns … each part of the content is presented in terms of why it’s important, what the tool (or model or skill) is, how to apply it and how versitile it is. There’s a method here that makes it simple and accessible for you to have a comprehensive understanding of how a tool works and how to apply it.
3. Practical – Learn by doing. On my trainings you’ll be busy; I aim to minimise the ‘sit and listen’ parts and maximise ‘go do’ parts.
4. Layered training – This means that each part of the training connects to and builds on previous parts.
5. Meta training – In short, I model what I train as I’m training it … maximum sensory congruence!
