The concept of the Mastermind was originally coined by Napoleon Hill as a result of his research into the most successful people in the world. Here is its simplest and most concise definition:
There have been many different applications of this concept in different formats and for different purposes. Sometimes they are focused around a single individual and their success or growth (like an advisory council), or they are focused on the growth of each person in the group. Sometimes they use a particular curriculum or project as a focus, sometimes not. Not all work as well as others depending on who is in them, who is facilitating them, and various other factors.
The kind of Mastermind that I facilitate has been proven to be dramatically effective by tens of thousands of people all over the world in every conceivable industry and background. As a professional facilitator, I lead a group of 5-10 select, growth-focused, motivated individuals through a powerful, life-changing book or course (in addition to my own content, I include a few select books by communication and leadership expert John Maxwell) for a set number of weeks. We meet weekly for an hour where we celebrate our wins, collaboratively seek solutions for challenges we’ve faced, explore the content selected for that week’s focus for actionable value in our current situations, assist each other in uncovering barriers to progress, and self-assign action items that the group can then hold us accountable for.
There is nothing quite like the connection that is forged in these groups. I’ve been awed by it, personally. If you are interested in exploring their potential for yourself, I recommend you check out which ones are upcoming and registering for one that fits your schedule.
