"Gerri offered training for our staff and community partners during 2020. She was incredibly flexible with changing COVID-expectations, delivering content in multiple formats and in two sessions to suit different learning styles. The content was paced well and relevant to anyone hoping to grow as a leader. The fact that Gerri not only answered questions but also took time to learn how to contextualize information for our faith-based nonprofit was particularly helpful and meaningful. I’d recommend her training for anyone looking to bring more compassion into their work."
“Through the mindfulness session at the retreat, I was able to build stronger relationships with my fellow YAMM participants, while also learning about myself and how I can improve my lifestyle. I was able to spend time alone and reflect on the previous days and weeks, allowing myself to take a breath from what was going on around me and just be present in the moment. The information that was presented to us at the retreat was extremely beneficial and can be applied to our everyday lives."
“During the fall retreat, I really appreciated learning about and practicing mindfulness. This is something I hear about and even teach to kids at work, but I didn’t take the time to do this for myself until the retreat. I also enjoyed having conversations with the other YAMM interns and serving alongside them during our day of service. The Fall Retreat was a neat opportunity to visit a new place and to expand my mental space beyond my work and daily life.”
The SIY leadership training program brings together mindfulness, neuroscience and emotional intelligence skills in a unique experience that was originally developed at Google. Due to incredible demand outside the company, the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI) was created as a stand-alone non-profit organization to bring practical mindfulness and emotional intelligence skills to a broader audience. In 2022, SIY Global launched as a public benefit corporation in order to increase presence in meeting the needs of today's work place. SIY can be experienced in a variety of formats.
