1-day Retreat in Lisbon, Portugal: Searching Inward, Leading Outward

    Why Gather For a Retreat?

    At SIY Global, we have seen first-hand how our trainings in emotional intelligence and human-centered skills have the power to change lives and shift the culture of organizations. And often, it is not just what we teach, but how we teach that has the greatest impact.

    For those interested in embodying compassionate leadership for a new way of working, this 1-day retreat is for you! It is an opportunity to deepen your personal practice of mindfulness and human-centered skills within a global community of like-minded leaders and practitioners so that you can have the influence and impact you’d like to make in the world.

    Together, we will deepen our connection to our shared mission to build more human(e) workplaces and envision the future that could be made possible through our collective efforts. You will walk away feeling resourced, connected, inspired and empowered to embody the ethos of a more human(e) workplace each and every day.



    The 1-Day SIY Global retreat will include:

    • A rejuvenating day of connection and introspection so you leave feeling inspired and empowered
    • The opportunity to deepen your personal practice of mindfulness and emotional intelligence (EI) through cutting-edge activities
    • An accessible and immediately applicable set of mindfulness practices to add to your toolkit, including sitting and movement meditation
    • Intrapersonal activities to inspire self-reflection and self-discovery in your personal and professional life
    • Interpersonal activities to connect with a global network of leaders committed to embodying and promoting emotional intelligence (EI) in top organizations around the world
    • Exercises to deepen your commitment to bringing human-centered skills to your organization
    • The opportunity to experience inspiring local culture and art, at a serene and breathtaking palace in Lisbon, Portugal.
    • Lunch will be served as well as coffee and tea in the afternoon
