A mastermind group can transform the way you operate, market and grow your business. Composed of a tight-knit group of knowledgeable advisers, the added support of a mastermind group really is for every businessperson.
Mastermind groups act as a great filter and sounding board for business leaders and entrepreneurs. In a mastermind group, the setting is an intimate 3-5 people. This small-group, collaborative atmosphere provides an honest space to share in your business’s successes, fears, and failures with the ability to gain support and receive feedback. Participating in a mastermind group demystifies the entrepreneurial adventure by providing a built-in forum designed to facilitate success.
I am a firm believer that when working through something and with others—there isn’t any place for egos. Operating in a creative and open space means being receptive and honest. It is paramount that our members know to “come as they are and to be who they are”. By establishing the expectations that each member is willing to participate without judgment of self and others, it really creates a space that allows us to receive feedback constructively.
A good mastermind group will provide:
- Diverse perspectives
- Personal and professional growth
- New energy
I believe in the power of the mastermind group as it has helped me build a successful career as a life coach. More importantly, it has helped me forge stronger relationships; as mastermind groups provide the vantage point for us to examine how our personal lives impact how we conduct our business. The community of a mastermind group addresses whatever we need so that we can be fully present and engaged in our businesses.
If you aren’t experiencing the exciting benefits in your current mastermind group, get a new one! Like us, mastermind groups are dynamic and it’s important that the leadership and members experience the benefits immediately upon meeting. So if your mastermind group isn’t serving you the way you envisioned, join another one, or create your own by inviting other business owners to join.
The questions is, what are you getting our of your mastermind group?
