Leveraging technology to improve the wellness of the world

MINDBODY emerged from a simple idea: small business owners deserve the time to do what they love. From its first iteration, MINDBODY software has turned that vision into the technology that links tens of thousands of health, wellness, and beauty professionals to the millions of clients they serve.

Today, we’re the leading global online marketplace for wellness services — and like the speed of technology itself, we’re blazing ahead toward limitless possibilities.

Living by our core values

As a company, we strive to uphold the seven guiding principles that make us who we are and shape where we’re headed:

1 Purpose Driven

  • Recognizing that finding our purpose and meaning is the most important goal of life.
  • Achieving our highest potential through lives of integrity and accountability.
  • Conscious that MINDBODY is serving a global cause greater than ourselves.

2 Humble & Helpful

  • Proud of MINDBODY and humble about our own role, because MINDBODY’s success is the result of the entire team working together.
  • Freely sharing expertise and knowledge throughout the company.
  • Openly hearing and respecting everyone’s ideas, as true inspiration may come from anyone.

3 Caring & Happy

  • Caring equally for our clients, our vendors, our community, and each other.
  • Striving for “Win-Win” relationships and avoiding “Win-Lose”.
  • Taking actions that lead to sustained happiness in ourselves and others.
  • Committed to the spirit of “Woo Hoo!,” remembering to have fun no matter how stressful the moment may be.

4 Committed to Wellness: Mind, Body & Spirit

  • Embracing all dimensions of wellness: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, environmental, occupational, and spiritual.
  • Loving what we do and doing what we love.
  • Aware that we must take care of ourselves today, so that we may serve others tomorrow.
  • Striving for lives that balance responsibilities, relationships, recreation, and rest.

5 Environmentally Conscious

  • Conscious that maintaining a healthy planet is the paramount responsibility of every human being.
  • Creating work environments that promote every dimension of wellness.
  • Taking actions to minimize MINDBODY’s environmental footprint.
  • Advocating for technologies and innovations that improve the health of our planet.

6 Committed to “Five C” Leadership

  • Building a team in which everyone may practice leadership daily, regardless of position or title.
  • Promoting into actual leadership, those who best demonstrate:
  • Competence – they know what they are doing.
  • Character – they do the right thing, even when it's not convenient.
  • Compassion – they care as much about others as they do about themselves.
  • Catalyst – they remove obstacles and make things happen.
  • Courage – they speak truth to authority and take responsibility for the performance of their team.

7 Continuously Evolving

  • Recognizing that each of us is completely free to wake up tomorrow and be just a little bit better.
  • Aware that MINDBODY must evolve to remain relevant and useful to the world.
  • Questioning the status quo, not accepting “...because it’s always been that way” as sufficient.
