How IT Works

Search Inside Yourself™ (SIY) is an interactive training delivered over two days, followed by four weeks of recommended, guided peer-to-peer practices to sustain and integrate learning and self-directed growth from the inside out.

Originally developed at Google, SIY uses a science-based approach that combines neuroscience, mindfulness and emotional intelligence. The training helps people build the emotional intelligence skills needed for well-being, sustained peak performance, strong collaboration, and effective leadership.

The program includes sessions on mindfulness (the science of being present), self-awareness (understanding your thoughts, emotions and habits), self-management (skillfully managing your impulses and reactions), motivation (aligning your values and work), empathy (understanding others’ feelings and experiences) and leadership (influencing with compassion).

I am proud to have completed a rigorous certification process and study of neuroscience, mindfulness, emotional intelligence and leadership, coupled with training conducted with experienced Search Inside Yourself™ (SIY) teachers and field experts the above disciplines. Certification by a panel of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute™ (SIYLI) faculty enables me to offer the program to organizations and individuals.
