Program Overview

The Search Inside Yourself Organizational Teacher Certification is a 6-month program that trains employees inside an organization to become certified to teach the renowned Search Inside Yourself program.

SIYLI is thrilled to partner with SAP’s Global Mindfulness Practice to deliver this unique program.

It has been taught in hundreds of organizations around the world, helping to improve skills such as stress management, resilience, empathy, effective leadership and more. Learn about Search Inside Yourself and the results the program has had on thousands of participants.

Train a group of employees to learn the tools, resources, practices and knowledge required to teach Search Inside Yourself inside your organization, effectively and at scale.

Who is this program for?

Organizations: This program supports organizations that want to develop emotional intelligence, leadership and mindfulness skills for their employees. Organizations from across sectors and geographies, from tech companies and large multinationals, to government agencies, to local community organizations are welcome to apply.

Participants: The SIY Organizational Teacher Certification has been designed for employees who are interested in becoming certified to teach emotional intelligence, mindfulness and effective leadership inside their organization.

One person or a group of people from each organization can apply to participate. We recommend having two to five participants as the SIY program is co-taught by two teachers. Participants can be from any part of the organization: from an internal coach, an L&D trainer to a manager or independent contributor from any function.

Seats are limited. This will be an intimate cohort to support participant’s learning and organizational implementation.

Build the skills needed to navigate a new world.

Facing ongoing uncertainty, high levels of stress, macroeconomic conditions, trends around automation, the shift to remote working, talent retention demands, high competitive pressure and many other business challenges, the need for core human skills at work is more important than ever before. Emotional intelligence, mindfulness and effective leadership help to build future-ready cultures that can thrive through ambiguity and change.

Organizations: Benefits & Outcomes

By participating in the SIY Organizational Teacher Certification, your organization will:

These programs and initiatives support a culture and community of mindfulness, empathy and resilience in your organization, building a sense of connection and engagement for employees.
  • Invest in expert teachers and facilitators: Delivering SIY through your own employees is even more impactful as the facilitators know your culture and can make a direct connection between the frameworks and tools taught in SIY and your organization’s context, including its mission, challenges and values. SIY Teachers learn facilitation skills that support an engaged, attuned, inclusive and collaborative environment during the program.
  • Build a cost-effective internal training model: SIY Internal Teachers can also teach, virtually or in-person, the SIY Keynote, Half-Day, and 1-Day program versions, as well as SIY’s Adaptive Resilience program. SIY can be taught to employees at all levels: as an open-enrollment skill-building and well-being programs, as part of a leadership journey, and to cultivate high-performing teams.
  • Develop a new class of leaders in your organization: In addition to teaching SIY, participants will learn about best practices to expand the program across regions and functions, leveraging the expertise of SAP’s Global Mindfulness Practice. People who go through this training are pivotal to support long-term scaling of this program and can support program management.
  • Gain expertise for integrated offerings: Participants will gain tools to bring mindfulness, emotional intelligence and effective leadership to your whole organization, including: leading mindful meetings, hosting mindfulness practice groups, facilitating intro sessions and interactive sessions for team offsites.
  • Seamless delivery of learning tools through the my.siyli.org platform: SIYLI’s proprietary platform supports assessments, reports, participant resources, program-related emails and more activities that make programs easy to manage and faster to scale.

    Companies like SAP have successfully scaled SIY, starting with just one internal teacher and has brought to more than 12,000 SAP employees, resulting in a 200% ROI.
