Karyn’s Mastermind Group Facilitator Training was truly superb. She has the unusual ability to present rich detail which will be invaluable to me in leading Mastermind groups, while not overwhelming us with details, and keeping the big picture clear and focused. The most effective teleseminar I have ever taken!

I’m an Introvert – Can I Be a Good Mastermind Group Facilitator?

I get this question all the time. People figure if they’re shy, or if they need to rest after being around a group of people, that they’re not cut out to lead a mastermind group.

I’m happy to admit that I’m an introvert myself, and I’ve been creating and running mastermind groups since 1995. If I can do it, so can you.

Maybe we should first define “introvert,” right?

Being an introvert doesn’t necessarily mean you are shy. What it means is that you draw your strength from your internal self, not other people. While extroverts gain energy by being around people, introverts expend energy by being around people (which means you need a rest break after your mastermind group meetings).

Introverts are strong. They rely on their own internal intelligence to perceive things clearly. They’re great in small groups, like a mastermind group. Even Forbes Magazine says that introverts make great leaders. The best part about being an introvert is that you keep your eyes and ears open to what’s around you, you can absorb and process a lot of input, and you don’t talk unless you have something worthwhile to say. All great traits of a mastermind group facilitator.

Sometimes introverts can appear shy. Actually, introverts prefer to not make idle chatter, which can make them seem shy. But get them talking about something they’re passionate about and you can’t shut them up. (I can chatter on about masterminding until someone gives up and walks away!)
