|Have we got an offering for you: a Search Inside Yourself (SIY) training!
What began as a mindful leadership initiative within Google, Search Inside yourself has now spread to over 30 countries and 100 cities around the world. So what is it? SIY is a 2 day training that strives to develop a more effective, collaborative and inclusive workplace. The goal of the program is to help people reduce stress and experience greater overall well being, increase creativity and innovation, improve communication and collaboration skills, and develop outstanding leadership.
The program includes sessions on mindfulness (the science of being present), self-awareness, self-management, motivation, empathy, and leadership – which SIY defines as ‘influencing with compassion.’
The SF Bay Joint Venture has been invited to offer this program to anyone in our partnership who would be interested, and at no cost! Space is limited to 30 people. The course will be held June 7 & 8. You can sign up here or email Caroline Warner to learn more.
Amaris Vicari will lead us through the experience. Amaris is passionate about the intersection of mindfulness and work. She has studied mindfulness at Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI) and has completed their Engage program dedicated to bringing mindfulness to the workplace.
