‘Search Inside Yourself’ is based on cutting edge neuroscience, mindfulness and emotional intelligence training. Three benefits of ‘Search Inside Yourself’:
Elevate personal performance with sustainable strategies. Develop strength in brain regions associated with focus, working memory and executive function. Cultivate greater empathy, collaboration skills and ease in relationships.
Develop your ability to influence with practical leadership skills. Increase your effectiveness, improve decision-making, and your ability to create positive culture.
Discover your sources of success, satisfaction and happiness. Build emotional resilience and stress management skills.
The Search Inside Yourself 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.
Craig Davis is a Certified SIY Teacher licenced by the SIY Leadership Institute, a non-profit organisation independent of Google, whose Board includes Chade-Meng Tan, Dr Richard Davidson, Arianna Huffington, and Marc Lesser.
SIY combines three disciplines in a unique, highly-interactive program designed to help you meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Workplace studies show that having strong emotional competencies predict employee performance, leadership effectiveness, and wellbeing.
Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that underpins personal growth, especially self-awareness, self-management, and relationship skills.
Scientific studies indicate that how we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.
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.
Developed and tested within Google.
Created by global thought leaders in mindfulness, emotional intelligence and neuroscience.
Makes deep and complex concepts highly practical and accessible.
Emphasises application to the ‘real world’ challenges of daily work.
What started as Google’s most popular, highly-rated and over-subscribed development program is being embraced by other organisations in technology, financial services, energy, bio-tech, manufacturing, health services, education, and more.
“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.”
Tea Uglow, Creative Director, Google Creative Lab
"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
“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.”

“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.”

I am a serial entrepreneur (having started or partnered in 11 ventures since university and having worked in 5 more), a creative industry leader, and one of a select few certified SIY Teachers in the world.
Having grown up in small country towns it was a surprise and delight, some years later, to be living and working all over the world as Chief Creative Officer for Saatchi & Saatchi Asia, and as the Chief Creative Officer, Worldwide, for J Walter Thompson. I got to help global companies like Toyota, HSBC, Procter & Gamble, Coca Cola, Sony, Vodafone, PayPal, Virgin, and Unilever, and win a shed-load of international awards (yes, my mum was very proud!). But this success came at a high price physically and emotionally, and I decided to change direction to explore more ‘conscious’ ways of living and working.
I’m a passionate believer in creating satisfying and sustainable business success, and I do my best to practice what I preach. I’m Co-Founder and CMO of digital disrupter Sendle, a purpose-driven startup taking on Australia Post by bringing technology and service design to the logistics industry. We’re Australia’s first certified technology B Corp, Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service, and a 2016 Telstra Business Award winner. A little over a year after our first product was released for small business the Australian Financial Review awarded us ‘Most Innovative Business Model’ and named Sendle as Australia’s 4th most innovative company!
In my spare time I hang out with friends and family (wife and three teens), sail, surf, bike ride, read, blog, meditate and do yoga, and I think I’m still the fastest Australian to run a marathon at the North Pole.
Besides that stuff, I’m Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology Sydney’s Business School, a guest lecturer at UNSW, and a keynote speaker represented exclusively by Saxton.
It’s my privilege to teach SIY to the people in some of Australia’s best-known and most progressive companies.
