Today’s Q&A series video lesson is on mastermind groups. Dima asks, “What makes a mastermind group stay strong and everyone participate?”
A mastermind group brings business owners or leaders (from different industries) together to learn from the collective intelligence of the group. To have a successful and strong group, you must:
- Care about the people in the group. Don’t just join a mastermind group to monopolize the conversation and find solutions to your problems. Listen and share your wisdom as well.
- Poll the group. Ask everyone what they want to learn about or discuss and create an agenda.
- Stick to the agenda. Conversations start to wander and you get off topic quickly when you don’t follow an agenda. It’ll save you time to prepare a topical discussion before hand.
Also, you don’t want to get in any mastermind group. Make sure it’s full of people that actually have experience – you want to grow from business leaders that have wisdom and intelligence.
Question: If you’re in a mastermind group, how’s it going? Has the experience been valuable?
