Whil got a shout out in the Business Insider, along with our amazing partners at the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute. Check it out below:

About five minutes before Search Inside Yourself was scheduled to start, I was running through New York City's Flatiron District, using half my mouth to chew a blueberry muffin and the other half to curse the fates for letting me oversleep by an hour.

It was a fitting start to a day of mindfulness training.

Search Insider Yourself (SIY) is a two-day program that teaches participants skills around mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and resilience. It was originally developed at Google, by the company's 107th employee, Chade-Meng Tan (a.k.a. the "Jolly Good Fellow").

Today, Tan no longer works at Google, where the program continues. But he sits on the board of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, which offers public SIY programs across the globe. (If you can't make it to a public SIY program, you can also download the free app Whil, which offers a digital version.)
