Search Inside Yourself

Think about the last time you went somewhere new.  Maybe it was a local neighborhood. Or perhaps you landed somewhere exotic on vacation.  Typically when we’re somewhere new, we’re very VERY PRESENT to the sounds, what we see, the smells, the energy, who is around us…all of our senses are engaged. Honing our “Being Present” mindfulness skills is a key component of the Search Inside Yourself.

Search Inside Yourself (SIY), a mindfulness-based program initially created at Google, offers a workshop on developing Emotional Intelligence. Daniel Siegel, author of the book, Emotional Intelligence, and the recent Best-Seller, Altered Traits, suggests that there are five components of Emotional Intelligence: self- awareness, self-management, motivation, empathy and leadership.

The SIY program combines current neuroscience and mindfulness practices in a coherent, content-rich Two Day workshop. The educational experience is life-changing, inspiring, accessible and useful. It’s for those new to any type of mindfulness program, “seasoned” practitioners or in-between.


  • Participants will experience lasting improvements, including:
  • Increase self-awareness and self-regulation, the first two core emotional intelligence competencies.
  • Practical take-away skills: a range of mindfulness practices, journaling and techniques for self-awareness, empathetic listening, and preparing for difficult conversations.Tools to communicate with insight and awareness of others’ emotions and perspectives.

Audience  The SIY program typically holds 20-80 participants and can be customized for a variety of participants including:

  • Senior Leaders and Executives
  • Teams
  • New Managers
  • Individual Contributors
  • Recent College Graduates
