Search Inside Yourself

Developed at Google.

Based on Brain Science.

Mindful Leadership Program.

Creating workplace ecosystems that thrive on the emotional intelligence, innovation and potential of their people.


Search Inside Yourself (SIY) is a retreat-like highly interactive and experiential training that blends mindfulness, emotional intelligence & neuroscience to awaken the best in people and organisations.

SIY has been offered to thousands of Googlers to take their leadership to new levels of effectiveness, purpose, and meaning. Developed by a Google Engineer, a Zen teacher, a Stanford University Neuroscientist, and Daniel Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence, SIY has moved hundreds of organizations and over 50,000 individuals around the world.


Bridging age-old mindfulness practice and modern neuroscience, SIY uses a combination of live training, individual assessments, and virtually delivered practices to help individuals develop emotional intelligence skills to thrive in our complex, fast-paced society.

Emotional Intelligence

Workplace studies prove that emotional competencies enhance performance, effectiveness, and well-being. EI is the essential skillset for leadership in our increasingly digital age.


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 how we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.

"I highly recommend SIY to anyone looking to improve the way their team works together, enhance their innovative thinking and clarity, reduce stress, improve general wellbeing, manage difficult conversations, and be generally more at peace."

-- Barry Margerum, Chief Strategy Officer Plantronics
