Course Details


The Search Inside Yourself (SIY) Wellbeing Program takes a science-based approach to develop the useful mental habits for achieving deep and long-lasting wellbeing.

Designed and tested at Google, the program helps participants integrate the key building blocks for wellbeing: mindfulness-based emotional intelligence, mental and emotional resilience and engagement.

The goal is to help participants thrive—enjoying greater productivity, effectiveness, and happiness—in all aspects of their work and outside of work.


Everyone has the capacity to develop and increase wellbeing because wellbeing is a skill, and like all skills is trainable. The highly interactive program includes the following core components:

• Overview of the neuroscience of emotion, perception and behavior change

• Definition of emotional intelligence and its benefits with regard to wellbeing

• Attention training to enable greater emotional intelligence, including self-awareness, self-mastery, motivation and connection with self and others

• Principles and practices for developing healthy mental habits that accelerate wellbeing—including effective listening, generosity, empathy, communication and social skills

• Mindfulness and reflection practices that support happiness, thriving and overall wellbeing

The program is delivered over two full days by expert facilitators who have worked extensively with leaders across multiple industries.

Course Objectives

Participants can expect to develop:

• Increased self-awareness and other core emotional intelligence competencies
