Creating MY Next Breakthrough What is a Mastermind group anyway? In short, it’s a small group of people who commit to meeting regularly for the purpose of peer support, brainstorming and accountability, and who are invested in one another’s success.
Why would you want to join one? We believe the top reason is the increased likelihood that you will actually get stuff done (as a result of the extra accountability and support) and the access to other perspectives (getting through your own blind spots), plus that feeling of being lifted up by our shared belief in one another.
How does a Mastermind meeting work? There’s an initial meeting for everyone to get to know one another, to set guidelines and to come up with focused goals. Then, within the regular meetings, there’s usually a rotation of "coaching seats," where the time is divided equally. Everyone takes turns discussing their goals and obtaining feedback from others. Accountability, collaboration, coaching and support is provided so that you actually get into action and create the results you want.
How is a Mastermind different from 1:1 coaching or online Courses? As compared to an e-course, a Mastermind is much more intimate. You all get to know one another and feel genuinely invested in one another’s success. The difference from 1:1 coaching is that you have access to several people’s wisdom and experience (and networks and opportunities to collaborate or to help to promote one another’s projects) rather than just that of your coach.
Consistency: One of the biggest things that holds business owners back is inconsistent or scattered effort. Mastermind groups can help you to be much more consistent and focused in your efforts. You will have help both in setting your goals and in tracking your actions. And you’ll get a range of ideas and perspectives on how to get unstuck when, as is inevitable, you hit roadblocks or just lose momentum.
Community: As a solopreneurs, we get very used to diy-ing all aspects of our business and going it alone in all decision making. A Mastermind group gives us our very own Board of Directors, Brain Trust or Steering Group, so that we don’t have to go it alone any more.
Growth: Make space for uncertainty. We grow most when we’re feeling uncomfortable or uncertain, and, it’s not an easy place to be. Being in a well-curated Mastermind group of supportive members gives us that sense that we’re all in it together and that we can help one another find our way.
