Mindful “U” Offers Custom Organizational Solutions For Your Club

Not all leaders take the time or make the investment in the education, training, and development of their teams, but those who do create high-functioning and sustainable cultures. 

Employee culture is more than a buzzword. A healthy club culture creates excitement in the workplace, makes it easier to recruit and retain the right people, reduces turnover, lowers costs, and creates an exceptional member experience.

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

If you are a leader who wants to turn good intentions into actions then Mindful “U” is a solution for you, your team, and your club.


What’s going on at your club? Is there a specific issue causing turnover, low morale, poor communication? More importantly, are your members affected by the team members behavior or attitude? 

Let’s connect; Mindful “U” works directly with your management team, onsite and online to help reduce stress, silos, turnover while improving work-life balance. When the team is aligned with the vision, are purpose-driven and feel safe to be open, honest and vulnerable, magic happens. Your team needs a leader that believes in investing in the most important asset – the staff.

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.



Mindful “U” has a proven record of success. We have been recognized by BoardRoom Magazine as “Educator of the Year”, our curriculum has been approved by CMAA and PCMA for continuing education credits, and we are Content Partners with the PGA Magazine and Troon.

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 workshops and the Mindful Leadership Course™ to be fun, easy and shareable. Use the Class Recordings and tools to mentor, educate or train your team members.
