The USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics, in partnership with the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI), presents this groundbreaking course developed at Google.
Two-Day Well-Being Program
Location: Tutor Campus Center, 3607 Trousdale Pkwy, Los Angeles, CA 90089
The Search Inside Yourself program (SIY) is a unique two-day course that was developed and refined at Google. The program's focus is on the five key domains of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills – with mindfulness practice, science, and leadership applications fully integrated at all levels.
SIY helps organizations address some of their most difficult challenges:
• Building resilience in times of rapid change • Helping leaders solve not just technical but adaptive problems, which have no clear answers • Supporting people in order for them to thrive in a fast-paced, connected world without boundaries • Creating an inspired workplace that supports true human development
The program is highly interactive and trains people to optimize performance and increase well-being. Each session is approximately one-third content and two-thirds skill training. Skill training includes individual, dyadic, and group exercises consisting of attention training, active listening with verbal feedback, a writing exercise, and emotion regulation.
