What is the Search Inside Yourself programme?

The Search Inside Yourself (SIY) programme will teach emotional intelligence skills that lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration, and effective leadership.

Search Inside Yourself was born at Google from a dream to change the world. It began in 2007 when a team of leading experts in mindfulness, neuroscience and emotional intelligence developed an internal course for fellow Google employees. It quickly became an incredibly popular training program within Google as well as other corporate, non-profit and government organisations around the world

The mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills you'll learn will help you:

  • Experience greater well-being, resilience and stress management
  • Improve performance, collaboration and empathy
  • Increase effectiveness and decision-making capacity
  • Cultivate innovative, creative thinking
  • Build more effective relationships

The Wellbeing Team invite UIS staff to join them for an open discussion on stress management. The group discussion will provide the opportunity to share thoughts, ideas and techniques for managing stress. Participants from the recent Search Inside Yourself training event will share some of their learnings from the wellbeing training programme.
