What is a Mastermind Group?
A Mastermind Group is a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting. The goal of a Mastermind Group is to share the collective knowledge and wisdom of the group collective so the individual participants achieve individual success.
Napoleon Hill (The Law of Success, Think and Grow Rich) defined a Mastermind as:
“The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony…No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind (the master mind).”
What Can I Expect From a Mastermind Group?
As the goal of a Mastermind Group is to share the collective knowledge and wisdom of the group collective, you will get from the group what you give to the group. Your participation and commitment to the other members of the Mastermind is mission critical to the overall success of the Group.
Your Mastermind Group will give you feedback, help you brainstorm new possibilities and set up accountability steps to keep you focused and on track. By participating in a Mastermind Group, you become part of a supportive group of individuals who inspire, motivate and help each other grow and achieve greatness.
What is Required From You?
The Group requires commitment, confidentiality, a willingness to give and receive input (advice and ideas) and to support each other. As you will be a catalyst for growth, a devil’s advocate and an advocate for each of the other members of the Group, total honesty, integrity, respect and compassion are also required.
