The SIY program was developed by a team of leading experts at Google and takes a science-based approach that combines neuroscience with principles of mindfulness and emotional intelligence. It is a highly interactive 2-day in-person session with 1/3 presentation and 2/3 exercises.

The presentation part introduces the latest findings about mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and leadership. SIY-trained facilitators will explain why and how these skills are working and how they can benefit your personal and professional life. We will provide research studies, business cases from international companies, and daily life examples as references.

The experiential part provides you with 24 short and practical techniques that help you to enhance focus, increase self-awareness, build emotional intelligence etc. These exercises will be performed individually or in groups and include focused attention and mindfulness practices, conversations, journaling, self-awareness and compassion exercises, and others. You can easily apply the learnings and search inside yourself to find out more about your thoughts, emotions, triggers, and motivations.

After the 2-day training, we will provide daily exercises and resources for a time period of 4 weeks delivered to you by email in order to help you apply the learnings in work and daily life.
