Join Women Leading In Technology for an inspiring introduction to the mindfulness-based emotional intelligence training program, Search Inside Yourself, developed at Google and backed by the latest neuroscience.

This introductory presentation helps to improve focus and empathy to harness your team’s full potential. The Search Inside Yourself (SIY) program teaches attention training and emotional intelligence skills that lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration, and effective leadership – key abilities to navigate change and uncertainty.

Be inspired by the world’s leading organizations
Join the emerging movement of companies integrating evidence-based mindfulness into their workplaces. What do Google, Samsung, Apple, P&G, McKinsey, Aetna, SAP, General Mills, LG, Apple, eBay and the World Economic Forum have in common? They have all introduced mindful leadership programs to help their leaders excel and their teams thrive.

This interactive keynote includes:
