WORKSHOP: Search Inside Yourself (BARCELONA)



This course is offered by the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (a Google spin-off). Based on neuroscience, the Search Inside Yourself workshop is designed to help you develop the emotional intelligence skills needed to improve your performance, collaboration and leadership abilities. Through teaching you self-awareness, empathy, communication and resilience skills, SIY helps you to achieve a positive mental and emotional state that leads to more effective and inspiring leadership skills.

The programme covers mindfulness (the science of being present), self awareness (understanding your thoughts, emotions and habits), self management (controlling your impulses and reactions), motivation (aligning your values with your work), empathy (understanding other people´s feelings and experiences) and leadership (influencing with compassion).

These mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills will help you to:

Improve your well-being, resilience and stress management 

Improve your performance, collaboration and empathy

Improve your effectiveness and your ability to make decisions

Cultivate innovation and creative thinking
