Search Inside Yourself (SIY) was developed at Google along with some of the world’s leading neuroscientists. It started as a New York Times bestselling book and quickly became Google’s most popular internal training program, and now a globally-recognised program.
Join us for this highly interactive 2-day program followed by a 4 week online journey as we explore mindfulness, emotional intelligence and neuroscience for inspiring well-being, high performance and enhanced leadership at work.
In 2017, this innovative training is being offered in both Sydney and Melbourne.
In a fast-paced world, increasing numbers of people are feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and disengaged. Our workplaces are full of burned-out leaders who report little bandwidth for big-picture thinking, for innovation and for building strong cultures. The time has come for an inside-out approach that empowers people to thrive in the face of ever-increasing stress and instability.
Many leading companies such as Google and the Harvard Business School are realising that modern leadership is about how well we use our minds and the quality of our relationships with others. Rather than simply focusing on business as usual, innovative organisations are turning to mind fitness and inner skills as a way to promote the capacity to thrive and flourish.
Workplace studies prove that emotional competencies enhance performance, leadership effectiveness, and wellbeing.
Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that underpins the inner factors of growth: self-awareness, self-management, and emotional skills.
Neuroscience shows that attention is the fundamental energy of the mind. How we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.
