Search Inside Yourself Leadership Training Program offered for the first time in Canada by the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management

October 18, 2013

TORONTO, ON – Search Inside Yourself, the renowned mindfulness and leadership training course that came from Google starts today for the first time in Canada to a sold out audience at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.

This two-day course, which was developed and refined at Google, teaches leaders and employees how to use mindfulness and meditation to build essential leadership and workplace skills. Training topics include communication skills, self-management, being an inspiring leader, improving focus and more. Participants often report improved productivity, interpersonal skills and leadership capabilities.

“Tested and proven at Google, the Search Inside Yourself Institute is at the frontier for mindfulness and resilience training in corporations and Rotman is thrilled to make it possible for Canadian leaders to access this incredibly powerful content,” says Michele Milan CEO of Rotman Executive Programs.  “We pride ourselves on sharing content that has an impact on the business community.  This program does just that, by providing people with the power to become better leaders.”

The course is highly interactive and trains people to optimize performance, train leadership skills and increase well-being. Each session is approximately one-third content and two-thirds skill training. Skill training includes individual, dyadic and group exercise consisting of attention training, active listening with verbal feedback, writing exercise and emotion regulation.

Offered in partnership with the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, the program will be offered in 2014 for a second time on April 4th and 5th at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. Complete program information and registration details are online at www.rotmanexecutive.com/siyli/.
