The Art and Science of Mindful Teams
Founded in 2017 in Playa Vista / Los Angeles' "Silicon Beach" with the belief that work doesn't always have to feel like work. And that a self-aware employee leads to more engaged teams and better overall performance. We don't just believe it — our decades of workplace experience and the research demonstrate it.
"I highly recommend SIY to anyone looking to improve the way their team works together."
Barry Margerum, Chief Strategy Officer of Plantronics
