Workshop "Search Inside Yourself (SIY)"

Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence as Developed at Google

More than 60 participants from In Praxi, INSEAD and London School of Economics and Political Science joined an inspiring introduction to the mindfulness-based emotional intelligence training program developed at Google and backed by the latest neuroscience. This introductory presentation helped to improve focus and empathy to harness your very own and your team’s full potential.

The SIY-program teaches mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills that lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration and effective leadership. Facilitated by Leena and Petri Pennanen (INSEAD MBA 90D), both SIY Certified Teachers, this SIY evening session was an inspiring and interactive introduction to mindfulness-based emotional intelligence skills with practical applications that participants can incorporate into their life immediately. We started with a little warm up and meditated before we went on a search inside ourselfes.

The training included the neuroscience supporting mindfulness and emotional intelligence, the role of attention training and self-awareness in enhancing focus, reducing reactivity and developing empathy. Also the Foundational exercises to focus attention, calm the mind and enhance connection and compassion were very helpful.

We ended the evening with a lively get together.

The expectations were fully exceeded and we are very much looking forward to anther event in cooperation with INSEAD.
