Join the emerging movement of companies integrating evidence-based mindfulness in their workplaces.
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.
The SIY program includes:
Join us for a highly interactive 2-day program followed by a 4-week online journey as we explore mindfulness and emotional intelligence for inspiring wellbeing, collaboration and high performance.

Mounira is an expert in mindfulness-based self-leadership & emotional intelligence. She brings 20+ years of leadership experience at international brands like Google, Red Bull, and BMW. Mounira was one of the pioneers of Google’s mindfulness community and its success led her to train teams at companies around the world.
But it wasn't always that way - being in dysfunctional business environments she had to learn how to lead herself, step back into her power and understand her own purpose and contribution, get more into alignment with her values and go back to the kind of person and leader she actually wanted to be.
As the co-founder of Connected Business and an international certified Search Inside Yourself trainer, her Vision is to share what helped her on this journey and develop new ways of co-collaboration that empower business people to live their purpose and create a world that is in service of the next 7 generations to come. In the past years, she worked with and mentored tens of thousands of (business) people globally.
Her book Connected Business: How I learned to lead myself and others was published by Ariston/Randomhouse Publishing in April 2020.

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

For all of our in-person programs, we will be adhering to local guidelines given that the situation in each location is unique and ever-changing. While we wish we could share exactly what our protocols will be, we won’t know in full detail until a few weeks before the program starts. This gives us the flexibility to ensure our programs and choices are aligned with the most up-to-date local guidelines, policies and protocols.
You will receive an email 3-4 weeks before your in-person program outlining what to expect with regards to the COVID-19 precautions we will be taking and what we will be asking you to do to help us create a safe event.
