8-Week Masterclass
$799 per attendee, discounts for multiple attendees from the same club
Tuesdays, Beginning September 26 at 9:00 am PST

Collaborative governance stresses the importance of including a wide-ranging network of stakeholders in decision making. This collaboration encourages partnership and co-operation between the board, management, staff, and members. 

We are our most collaborative when we are balanced and whole. The key to achieving Work – Family – “U” harmony starts with becoming more aware, more open, and a clearer communicator. That’s where Mindful “U”s teaching brings emotional intelligence (EI) and artificial intelligence (AI) together to play a transformative role. In this masterclass, we’ll explore how leveraging EI and AI can lead you to a more fulfilling and successful journey rich with team building, stakeholder buy-in, and club cooperation.

Class Begins 09/26/2023!

What to Expect in 8 Weeks

Participants in this masterclass are provided a safe learning environment to be open, honest, authentic, and vulnerable. Led by Craig Marshall, a 35-year yoga monk, “The Monk” and Rick Ladendorf, a 35-year leader in the club industry, “The Mastermind”, these discussions are intended to go deeper on subjects that matter most to working professionals, including helping to improve work-life balance, reduce stress, and develop better communication skills. Classes meet weekly on zoom.
