In other words, are you surrounding yourself with people who are going to lift you up and help you soar? One way to do this is to join a Mastermind Group.
What is a Mastermind Group?
A Mastermind Group is a mentoring concept through which individuals can form groups to learn from each other and grow together. It can significantly help shape your life, personality, and business.
The intention is that peers can help each other solve problems and develop themselves together through input and advice from each other.
So how do choose the right Mastermind Group for you?
Pay attention to the type and profile of the leaders that are involved in the group. You should fit a similar profile in terms of where they are in the trajectory of their business/income. If you’ve been in business for 20 years, you would not want to be in a group of people who are just starting their businesses. This would not be a good fit for you. Instead, look for a leader who has been in business for years and has solved many of the issues you face.
Consider the group’s activities and the events that are planned for the year. Do they align with your goals? Will you be able to address the questions and concerns you may have? Are the leaders similar to you, with similar company issues on which you can work together to resolve in your meetings?
At the heart of any Mastermind Group is the exchanging of ideas and getting ideas, ideally that is through in person meetings, however, with busy schedules and remote work this is not always possible, so phone and video meetings are becoming increasingly popular.
One key factor of succeeding in meetings is to have clear rules. Punctuality, agenda of discussed topics, the maximum time that people should take to answer, etc. If these rules are set at the beginning, leading the group will be much easier and the benefits will be greater.
There are number of reasons to join a Mastermind Group, to gain new perspectives and ideas on your problems, to learn from others experiences and expand your knowledge, to create a small network of people you can depend on. Whatever your reason, choosing the right Mastermind Group will help ensure you are surrounding yourself with eagles.
