Search Inside Yourself™

Gayle Van Gils is one of fewer than 100 individuals worldwide certified to teach this curriculum born at Google from one engineer’s dream to change the world.

Search Inside Yourself bridges age-old practices of mindfulness with emotional intelligence and modern neuroscience. It teaches participants to navigate opportunities and challenges with more resilience, engagement, and happiness. It’s about living and leading fully.

The Search Inside Yourself program can be delivered in a one day or two day format.

 

WHAT
  • The day (or two) will equip participants with specific tools that enhance focus, self-awareness, and resilience and reduce stress.
  • It teaches how to develop emotional intelligence which will lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration, and effective leadership.
  • The practices of mindfulness and attention training increase self-awareness, which can be applied a a wide variety of situations to respond thoughtfully, rather than react defensively.
  • These and other benefits – such as handling difficult situations, and unleashing creativity – are necessary for both successful business leadership and everyday life!
HOW
  • The approach is science-based, and students will enjoy seeing the connection between what is being taught and practiced and how it affects and can literally re-wire their brain.
  • It is highly interactive – with approximately one-third content, and two-thirds experiential exercises – including one-on-one and group conversations, attention training practices, listening exercises and writing activities.
  • Each program is tailored to the client’s needs, and presented through the lens that will best speak to the audience
