• What we’ll do
We are going to try something new. Mastermind groups are an effective way to be supported by fellow like-minded peers and all the while being held accountable to the growth of your blog. Come with your laptop, description of your blog and your goal(s) for the year. Give a quick presentation of your blog and your goals. After everyone has shared, we will break into smaller groups of 3 to 6. This is your Mastermind group. Swap names, emails and phone numbers to hold each other accountable, and to schedule gatherings on your own.

Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. A mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success. Participants challenge each other to set powerful goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.

Through a mastermind group process, first you create a goal, then a plan to achieve it. The group helps you with creative ideas and wise decisions-making. Then, as you begin to implement your plan, you bring both success stories and problems to the group. Success stories are applauded (loudly!), and problem are solved through peer brainstorming and collective, creative thinking.

The group requires commitment, confidentiality, willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion. Mastermind group members act as catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates and supportive colleagues. This is the essence and value of mastermind groups.

Each meeting has a mastermind group agenda, so that conversations stay on course. The Facilitator is tasked with making sure that conversations are deep and balanced, and that all mastermind group meeting agenda items are covered in the time allotted.

Thanks to Lisa Howe for this great idea!
