The MiND.Udifference

Offering globally-proven ways to help organisations, leaders and individuals to flourish

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
- Maya Angelou


Personal and professional flourishing starts from within.

MiND.U crafts experiences that support you to be more present, aware and attentive while building your resilience and capacity to connect and attend to yourself and those around you. In the workplace, leadership and our wider lives, the importance of presence and how people feel cannot be underestimated. At MiND.U this is where we start.

We look forward to collaborating with you as a leader, individual or organisation to co-create a bespoke journey to suit your needs.


Our evidence-based tools and programmes are backed by research and delivered with energy.

We have a variety of experience, training, tools, courses and programmes in our portfolio. These global models and ideas are grounded in deep research and training. With dynamic facilitation skills, genuine passion and lived workplace and leadership experience, our team is perfectly placed to deliver engaging workshops, courses and training. The secret sauce is being able to integrate and embed long-lasting practices in a way people can really relate to and understand.

‘I can’t recommend Lotty enough – her industry knowledge in terms of team wellbeing, culture and mindfulness is amazing – but its her translation of this through her delivery and engagement which sets her apart.’

Jon Mellors, Director, Darvill Mellors & Co


“Values are like lighthouses; they are signals giving us direction, meaning and purpose.”

THE MiND.Uvalues

Our values are at the heart of everything we do. At MiND.U we do our best work when we collaborate with like-minded people and organisations who share these values.

Passionate about how people feel

We show care, consideration and compassion for those around us at all times.

Open, curious and ever-adapting

We actively listen to the people we work with, exploring, learning and evolving as we go.

Devoted to creating value

We do this by helping others learn and grow in an engaging and practical way.

Easy to work with

We keep things simple, communicating with our customers in a way that works for them.

Role models for what we teach

We embody the lessons and ideas we share while being transparent and upfront about mistakes and mishaps we make along the way.


These three pillars guide the MiND.U mission, which is to enable our clients to:

Courageously feel

This represents our depth of study and hands on work with emotions, emotional wellness and emotional culture in the workplace.

Mindfully flourish

Our mission is to make the practice of mindfulness part of how people roll, both in our personal lives via our retreats and courses, but also at work, with a focus on mindful workplaces, teams and mindful leaders too.

Tenderly flow

This is the practice of focusing truly on what matters most and achieving flow state through the art of letting go and doing less. Are we crazy – nope, it’s crazy to keep adding things and not stopping things.

Client testimonials

“Lotty completely captured the hearts and minds of our leaders and is continuing her work with us by offering Change Leadership sessions for our Executive and General Manager’s. It’s my absolute pleasure to highly recommend Lotty to you. The value she’s added, and her insights have helped us move forward in our pursuit to increase the project and change management capabilities of our middle leaders. We are well on the way with our journey thanks to Lotty’s advice and input.”

Heather Compton
Learning and Capability Manager, Healthscope

“Lotty spoke at a corporate leadership conference I organised in September 2018 and was an absolute pleasure to work with. One of the things I really appreciated about Lotty was how keen she was to understand as much about the audience as possible, which made her presentation relevant and personalised. Her presentation was very well-received, with a number of our leaders saying it was a highlight of the conference.”

Haley Coe
Director , The Halo Effect

“Lotty is a wonderful guide and coach.  She has supported us beautifully on our journey.  This has helped us to do more of the things that enhance our people’s experience at work and less of the things that don’t, transforming our culture in the process.  Lotty brings wisdom, humour and insight to the work she does.  We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Lotty and recommend the work she does for anyone interested in cultural transformation.”

Amanda Thorpe
Head of People and Culture TMNZ

“It was a good reminder that emotion does play an everyday part in our roles as leaders and it gave some real tangible skills in dealing with it.”

“Lotty delivered workshops at our management offsites: Navigating Change the Mindful Way and it was outstanding! It was incredibly well received by the entire team, many of them have since been talking about it weeks later, letting me know how useful they have found it both in a professional and personal sense. We are now working on our leadership development so we continue to deliver meaningful coaching, mentoring and training sessions. I’m looking forward to continuing our collaboration! Thanks heaps Lotty!”
