Join the emerging movement of organizations integrating evidence-based mindfulness for greater impact.


Emotional Intelligence

Studies have shown that emotional intelligence helps us show up with greater wellness for the causes we care about most.



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 and wellbeing: self-awareness, self-management, and emotional skills.

Miroo Kim

Miroo Kim is the CEO of People+Culture, the Collective that enables people and organizations to create the culture of wellbeing at workplaces. Miroo's journey to People+Culture started when she fell in love with technology when her tech career started at Apple in 2002. She worked on various products (iMac, iPod, iBook, iPhone, Windows Mobile, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp) in diverse functions (Marketing, Product, Operations) in different companies (Apple, Microsoft, Meta/Facebook). Over 20 years in the industry, she realized the most amazing technology, after all, was the human mind - our consciousness and awareness. However, no one was paying attention to taking care of the human mind at work, instead of just taking advantage of it. She experienced the negative consequence from this directly in burnout and depression. Ultimately, it was the development of emotional intelligence and mindfulness that not only saved her but also helped her thrive at work. This experience inspired her to found "[People+Culture](", to help people and organizations create the culture of wellbeing at workplaces.

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"
