It is a well-known fact that if you tell someone else what your goals are, there is more incentive to actually reach those goals. Just like the simple process of showing up at Weight Watchers each week, knowing you’re going to have to weigh in, motivates you to do your best, so being in a Mastermind Group motivates you to do your very best. You will want to readily share your goals with your group, knowing that once shared two things happen:
❖ They become more real in your own mind
❖ There is an accountability of letting group members know where you are in your progress.
The beauty of a Mastermind Group is that the members raise the bar on what is expected, challenging each other to create and implement new goals, brainstorm ideas, and support each other with honesty, respect and shared resources.
You are not looking for clones of yourself. We want diversity. The strength of a group will derive in part from your diversity of the group; Coming from our routines of work and home, a Mastermind Group provides a different setting and a different set of voices for a fresh perspective on our lives.
The prevailing mindset should be that of complete honesty. This is not the hierarchy of work where honesty could cost you your job. It’s not a family gathering where honesty may not be received well from partner. In a Mastermind Group we welcome the diversity of opinions - knowing that fresh perspectives may broaden our options and lead to better results.
Yes, we want encouragement. But not false pats on the back while you’re headed in the wrong direction that so often are part of a corporate environment. Rather, you want real encouragement that comes with suggestions to grow, to stretch, and to consider new alternatives. As people achieve higher levels of success in a closed environment, they typically receive less and less honest feedback. Everyone is a fan and eager to compliment. No one’s telling the boss his fly is open and his hairstyle is out of date. Often in that elevation of position and title there is a diminishing honesty about things that may have crept into ones’ behavior. In a Mastermind Group you will want to foster compassionate honesty as a bonus of trusted friendships.
Many people today, from the single owner business to people in high positions of power and prestige, have no close relationships. As mentioned, corporate settings and families are typically not ideal places to share too much. Too much openness can quickly be used against you. A Mastermind Group is a unique opportunity to fill that essential void.
This is a critical component in building a high level of trust. There are few relationships in real life where confidentiality is assured. In a B2B Club Mastermind Group, members tell the truth about personal and business life, and feel safe that what is said in the group will stay in the group. An Non Disclosure agreement is signed by everyone to protect the privacy of each member of the group.
When you have people involved in a variety of industries and professions, you will find access not only to ideas, but to different skill sets, networks and resources.
Every winning athlete, business person, professional, musician, or entrepreneur has a team of experts behind them. Success is never achieved alone. How would you like to have a handpicked team of advisors who are committed to your success? What could you achieve with the expert advice, encouragement, counsel and belief of a small group of successful people that you met with regularly? If success is important to you, the power of a Mastermind Group can be a critical part of reaching that success.
