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

Each day is highly interactive, combining one-third content with two-thirds skill training. You will learn to optimize performance, train leadership skills and increase well-being. Skill training includes individual, dyadic and group exercise addressing attention, active listening with verbal feedback, writing exercises and emotion regulation.
