MASTERMIND GROUPS

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein

 

The purpose of the Mastermind Group is to provide executives and owners of businesses the opportunity to work with a small group of peers addressing common business challenges and learning from each other how to become a better leader through a disciplined facilitated process that will help you grow your business with confidence.

Running a business can be lonely at times. Looking for inspiration? Your Mastermind Group provides the safe sounding board that will provide you with meaningful feedback when you're confronted by the challenges, opportunities and decisions that can change your business and your life’s goals.  It will also give you the opportunity to learn from others challenges and how they formulate a success plan forward.  Further, the group will help you maintain accountability to yourself and provide critical input as you pursue your quest for success.

Group Membership

 

Membership to a Group is not guaranteed. Business leaders wishing to join a Group should complete the application below in order to determine the best fit and contribution potential. Applications will be presented to existing Groups for their consideration. This process aids in assuring the highest quality collaboration and benefit for the Group.

Business leaders will be given the opportunity to meet the other Mastermind Group members to determine the mutual interests and value they can contribute to the Group.

The membership application does not assure that an invitation to join the group will be extended. There is no commitment or cost until such time as the group accepts the applicant and the parties agree to work together. 

The Groups generally meet two times a month with an initial commitment of six months.  Sessions will be held by videoconferencing or at participant’s conference facilities if the Group is established locally.  Most groups will range from 8 to 12 participants.  Confidentiality and code of conduct are extremely important and will be agreed in advance by the Group.  Private one-on-one coaching will be offered and provided as decided by the needs of the Group.

Sessions will normally convene for one and one half hours.  During the session each participant will be given a Hot Seat opportunity to present a problem or challenge and then receive feedback and suggestions from the other Members. Based on the time available the facilitator will lead a business leadership topic discussion of mutual interest to the participants.
