The Search Inside Yourself (SIY) program will teach emotional intelligence skills that lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration, and effective leadership.

Historical background 

Search Inside Yourself was born at Google from a dream to change the world. It began in 2007 when a team of leading experts in mindfulness, neuroscience and emotional intelligence developed an internal course for fellow Google employees. It quickly became an incredibly popular training program within Google as well as other corporate, non-profit and government organisations around the world.

The program includes sessions on:

  • mindfulness - the science of being present

  • self-management - skilfully managing your impulses and reactions
  • motivation - aligning your values and work-
  • empathy - understanding others’ feelings and experiences
  • leadership - influencing with compassion

The mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills you'll learn will help you:

  • Experience greater well-being, resilience and stress management

  • Increase effectiveness and decision-making capacity
  • Cultivate innovative, creative thinking
  • Build more effective relationships
