Google’s Chade-Meng Tan on “Search Inside Yourself”

September 18, 2012
David Brower Center
2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA 94704 | Map It

A free event with Google’s Jolly Good Fellow to discuss his new book, preceded by a reception for GGSC members.

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

Please join us for an evening with Chade-Meng Tan to mark the release of his new book Search Inside Yourself, followed by ample time for a Q&A session.

Meng has served as one of Google’s earliest engineers. Among many other things, he helped build Google’s first mobile search service, and headed the team that kept a vigilant eye on Google’s search quality. After eight years in Engineering and two years as GoogleEDU’s Head of Personal Growth, he now serves with Google’s Talent Team. His current job description is, “Enlighten minds, open hearts, create world peace.”

In his first book Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Profits, Happiness (and World Peace), Meng shares the mindfulness-based emotional intelligence course he created in collaboration with bestselling author Daniel Goleman. Search Inside Yourself seeks to distill mindfulness and emotional intelligence in a way that even skeptical, compulsively pragmatic, engineering-oriented brains like Meng’s can process, breaking them down into a set of practical tools and skills that can be adopted by anyone, at any career or experience level.

Search Inside Yourself is also the backbone of the popular course of the same name taught at Google to elevate the work and lives of the people who work there. Deeply rooted in science, the course was designed to help Googlers reduce stress, increase wellbeing, heighten focus and creativity, become more optimistic and resilient, build fulfilling relationships, and ultimately become happier and more profitable in their work and their lives. Now Meng is sharing the course openly in the hopes of seeing every workplace in the world become a drinking fountain for happiness and
enlightenment.

This event is free to the public with first-come first-serve seating, but GGSC members should RSVP to elnab@berkeley.edu with their member ID now to reserve a seat and attend the special VIP reception. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Meng’s tips on how to achieve success, profit, and get ahead by way of time-tested wisdom and scientifically proven concepts.

Agenda:
6:30-7:15 PM: Free VIP reception for ticket-holding members of the GGSC
7:30 PM: Program followed by Q&A
