About Mindful “U”

The Monk & The Mastermind create 21st Century leaders! Our unique training is based on Craig Marshall’s 35 years as a yoga monk and Rick Ladendorf’s 35 years as a business leader and influencer.

Mindful “U” has taught thousands of leaders and team members how to build healthy and sustainable cultures.

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 also told them that she had learned how to manage 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.

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.

Mindful “U” provides online and onsite workshops, live group classes, one-on-one coaching and a proprietary learning platform.  

We begin with a discovery call to help guide you through the process and make recommendations that help you achieve your most important goals. 

Mindful “U” is a network of mindful professionals serving individuals and companies.
