The What

What is Search Inside Yourself?

Originally developed at Google, Search Inside Yourself (SIY) is a comprehensive leadership program grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience that teaches mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills needed for effective leadership.

Through the three disciplines of emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and neuroscience, SIY helps participants integrate the key building blocks for well-being, collaboration, and leadership.

Search Inside Yourself is the flagship program from the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI), and has been taught in over 50 countries to organisations such as SAP, Salesforce, and the U.N.

The Why

Why does Search Inside Yourself matter?

Start by thinking of the qualities that someone you consider a great leader embodies.

Collaboration? Empathy? Vision?

These are skills that can be developed through emotional intelligence training.

While we all intuitively recognize that emotional intelligence is important for leadership, for years we struggled to answer the question of "How?"

Search Inside Yourself provides a unique answer to this question by blending insights from contemporary neuroscience and the ancient practices of mindfulness.

By providing a science-based approach to teaching emotional intelligence that is experiential, engaging, and relevant, SIY has become known as a leading program in its field.
