Search Inside Yourself (SIY) Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence Training

For Resilient Flourishing at Work, at Home, and in Community

Developed and tested at Google, the SIY program teaches practical mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and leadership skills that lead to sustained peak performance, resilience, healthy collaboration and effective leadership. SIY takes an evidence-based approach combining neuroscience, attention-training and emotional intelligence. The self awareness, focused attention, stress management, and mindful communication skills that SIY trains in a unique, highly experiential format can be applied immediately at work and at home.

Feedback from over 6,000 participants across 20 countries shows strong and positive results:

  • 71% felt a better ability to reduce stress after the program (vs. 46% before the training).
  • 61% reported being able to bounce back from an emotionally challenging situation (vs. 43% before the program).
  • 72% noticed an ability to increase focus and return to the present moment (vs. 51% before the program).

Content:

Introduction to mindfulness: What is mindfulness, its benefits as a tool to help us move from auto-pilot to aware, and the neuroscience behind its effectiveness.

Mindfulness & self-awareness: What is self-awareness, emotions as physiological responses, the importance of understanding our emotional state and its impact on our well-being and actions.

Stress reactivity & managing emotions: How to move from compulsion to choice when responding to life triggers resulting in more productive and pleasant outcomes.

Resilience & self-compassion: 3 steps to develop resilience and the science and benefits of self-compassion as a mechanism for dealing with difficult situations.

Empathy & compassion: empathy and compassion definitions and the neuroscience behind them. How to tap into and practice compassion for better leadership and as an antidote to burnout.

Communicating with insight: How to communicate with compassion for others and truly be of service, with mutual learning and understanding -- even in difficult conversations.

Outcomes:

This program empowers participants to:

  • Identify and develop the inner resources and mental clarity needed to optimize leadership and performance and enhance well-being.
  • Understand the neurobiology behind optimal mental states and how you can use this knowledge to maintain focus and equanimity and cultivate leadership presence.
  • Recognize the triggers and threats to optimal mental states and learn strategies to navigate challenges, foster resilience and thrive, both personally and professionally.
  • How to build and maintain relationships in our new social distancing environment and beyond.
  • Recognize the key drivers of human behaviors in social settings that lead to conflict or compassion.
  • Develop tangible communication practices that build psychological safety in groups and support mutual learning, understanding and collaboration.

Delivery Modality and Duration for Virtual Trainings (while covid-19 persists):

This blended learning program starts with 6 virtual 2-hour long instructor-led classes. Roughly ⅓ of the time is spent sharing content, while the remaining ⅔ is experiential. Practical exercises and one-on-one breakout room discussions -- including attention and awareness training, listening practices, and journaling activities -- enable participants to explore skill-building tools first hand and experience the layered program benefits.

Upon completion of Session 6, a 28 day challenge begins in which participants receive a brief daily exercise to integrate what they’ve learned. The module culminates with a capstone webinar at the end of the practice period that provides guidance for continued progress.
