Most leaders say their people
are their most important asset...

...but in reality, it's not that way.

Most leaders pay lip service, but how many really invest adequately in education, training & development of their teams to create high-functioning and sustainable cultures?

Employee culture is more than a buzzword – culture is what creates excitement in the workplace, making it easier to recruit & retain the right people, reducing turnover, lowering costs and creating an exceptional member/customer experience.

When people feel safe to express their opinions openly, they tend to be more creative, innovative, inspired and productive.

If you are a leader that “knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way”, then Mindful “U” could be for you and your team.

The Mindful “U”
Leadership Development Program™

Offering education, application & ongoing support

This comprehensive program is for you, your managers and your staff and there are many ways to get started. 

We provide ala carte and enterprise solutions, depending on timing and budget to help you build a healthy & sustainable culture

In only one-hour per week, you can transform yourself and your team, improve work-life balance, reduce stress & drama, enhance collaboration and reduce turnover.   

Our Leadership Development Program provides the education, tools, coaching and ongoing support to help you and your team achieve personal, professional and company goals. 

Our engaging classes & interactive exercises are built on the 7 Mindful-Living Habits™, developed by “The Monk” and “The Mastermind” for busy working professionals. 

Our online platform includes a 26-lesson Mindful Professional Course –  videos, audios, tools, practical exercises & guided meditations, to help you become a better leader, parent, partner and person.

In addition, we provide one-on-one coaching and consultation services to help get to the root of what matters most to you and help mentor you in reaching your goals.


These days, employers are looking for people who are balanced, healthy and open to learning and growing. Beyond skills and knowledge, 21st Century leaders need to be collaborative, empathetic and great communicators.

Completion of the 26-Lesson Mindful Professional Course™ qualifies students to receive a certificate of completion, which has been found to be a valuable addition to their resume and differentiate them from other candidates.  

One of our students was asked by a prospective employer about her Mindful Professional Certification. She explained that the course taught her how to be a better listener, questioner and how to deal with workplace drama. She told him that she had learned how to manager her ego, facilitate collaborative meetings and get the most out of her team. She got the job and felt her certification was the determining factor in securing her new role.


When you complete the 26-lesson Mindful Professional Course within 12-months (as an individual or as a team) you will qualify as a Certified Mindful Professional™.

Includes 12-months access to the Mindful “U” Platform, “Ask the Monk” email support and an invitation to participate in our weekly live “Chat with the Monk” group zoom calls.  

To create a dynamic work culture, you will need to identify and invest in your champions. 

If your team is not ready to jump into the Leadership Development Program™, you may want to consider selecting a couple of your top managers to participate and evaluate the curriculum.

Payment plans are available.

Frequently asked questions

Mindfulness can upgrade every aspect of daily work life. It’s like working ON your team vs. working IN your team. The goal of mindfulness is greater engagement & alignment, accomplishing more, with less negative and wasted energy. When team members understand this, they begin to get excited by their personal & professional development. The team takes on a spirit of cooperation & collaboration, and colleagues begin to think of themselves as a family.

Almost any change will meet initial resistance. Introducing mindfulness practices will be embraced by some of your team, but some may be lukewarm. We understand. That’s why we designed our Leadership Development Program™ and our Mindful Professional and Mindful Leadership Course™ to be fun, easy and shareable. Use the Class Recordings and tools to mentor, educate or train your team members.

It depends on your schedule and commitment to ongoing leadership development, training & education for your managers, mid-level managers and staff.
