How do the best leaders manage change, stay resilient, and inspire growth?   Developed at Google by leading experts in neuroscience and psychology, we teach you the practical tools to bring out your best.  What began as a mindful leadership initiative within Google is now a global movement.  Backed by world experts in neuroscience, mindfulness and emotional intelligence, Search Inside Yourself has already changed thousands of lives. 

Since 2007

Search Inside Yourself was born at Google from one engineer’s dream to change the world.  It began in 2007 when veteran engineer Chade-Meng Tan assembled leading experts in mindfulness, neuroscience and emotional intelligence to develop an internal course for his fellow Googlers. It quickly became an incredibly popular training program within Google.

30 countries, 100 cities

Interest outside Google was so great that the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI) was established in 2012 as an independent nonprofit organization. Since then, Search Inside Yourself has become a globally recognized program and SIYLI continues to work with Google, as well as other corporate, nonprofit and government organizations around the world.
