Join others looking for personal and professional development at the Search Inside Yourself workshop (SIY), a unique two-day course developed and refined at Google. The workshop focuses on the five key domains of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills - with mindfulness practice, science, and leadership applications fully integrated at all levels.
SIY helps organizations address some of their most difficult challenges:
• Building resilience in times of rapid change • Helping leaders solve not just technical but adaptive problems, which have no clear answers • Supporting people to thrive in a fast-paced, connected world without boundaries • Creating an inspired workplace that supports true human development
Over the course of two days, our expert instructors integrate the theory and practices of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and the supporting scientific evidence in order to provide you with not just the tools to succeed, but also the knowledge to back up changes you make at the office. SIY provides the tools and skills to improve workplace effectiveness, leadership, and happiness.
Search Inside Yourself works in three steps:
Attention is the basis of all higher cognitive and emotional abilities. Train attention to create a quality of mind that is both calm and alert. This quality of mind forms the foundation for emotional intelligence.
Self-Knowledge and Self-Mastery:
Use trained attention to understand cognitive and emotional processes. This knowledge provides the individual with the ability to regulate and master emotions.
Create Useful Habits and Leadership Skills:
Develop the habits of leading with compassion and communicating with insight. These habits can be trained and create trust that leads to highly productive collaborations.
Program participants will:
- Learn several mental training practices, including self-awareness, attention training and an introduction to emotional intelligence that are useful in enhancing work place skills.
