Join the emerging movement of companies integrating evidence-based mindfulness in their workplaces.


Emotional Intelligence

Workplace studies prove that emotional competencies enhance performance, leadership effectiveness, and wellbeing.



Attention is the fundamental energy of the mind. How we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.



Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that underpins the inner factors of growth: self-awareness, self-management, and emotional skills.

Joan Serra Cabado

Ceo & Founder of - Wellbeing & Conscious Leadership More than 25 years of professional experience as a consultant, manager, and trainer. I contribute to the Well-being, Efficiency, Collaboration and outstanding Leadership in Organizations, through coaching and very practical, accessible and transformative teachings aimed at leaders, teams and overall staffI. I teach the world-renowned Mindfulness programs MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) and SIY (Search Inside Yourself), the Mindfulness-based Emotional Intelligence for Leaders program developed by GOOGLE. In my long experience as a manager, consultant (and mountaineer) I have been witness and protagonist of the success and failure of multitude projects. And over time I have discovered that the key to success was almost always the same: the degree of engagement and awareness of those involved. Projects do not usually fail due to a lack of objectives, strategy or organization (which sometimes also do) but because of the people involved in their design, development and execution. Aspects such as focus, clarity, stress and emotion management, motivation, resilience, empathy, collaboration …… seem to be key aspects for the success and balanced development of projects / businesses, people and the environment in which they develop. After a professional career of more than 25 years as an entrepreneur, manager, consultant and trainer, since 2015 I decided to focus on the development of people, teams and organizations. I got trained with the best professionals in Coaching, Mindfulness, NLP and Emotional Intelligence, with the firm purpose of contributing to the good leadership, effectiveness and well-being of people, teams and organizations.

What Participants Say

"This is the best course I have EVER attended. Never before I have been able to sit for two whole days and be fully engrossed in every second. I will tell people that if they are wanting to transform their lives then they MUST attend this course."

"SIY changed the way I deal with challenges. I actually remain calm in stressful situations, and colleagues look to me to find workable solutions to problems."

"Inspiring. Cutting edge. What the new world of leadership look like."

"I like how SIY makes mindfulness practices very accessible to people. There's a very strong hesitation, unwillingness, fear that comes up when you think about sitting down and trying some of these tools. The experience you get in the workshop dissipates that so you are able to take it with you. What these tools really do is increase self-awareness. When you become more self-aware you become more tolerant and more compassionate, and it leads to better relationships with family, friends, and in the workplace"
