MENTORING PROGRAM
CREATE THRIVING, REWARDING, PROFITABLE MASTERMIND GROUPS

Creating a Mastermind Group enhances your business and your life.

Synergy Mentoring Program

 

I know from experience that you can fill and run multiple successful mastermind groups and make them so extraordinary, your members meet and exceed their goals.

But (and this might be something you can relate to) many Facilitators aren’t where they could be.

Over the past few years, I’ve interviewed dozens of mastermind group Facilitators, asking them just two things:

  • What is getting in the way of you creating thriving, successful mastermind groups?
  • What do you need from me to help you reach your full potential?

Some told me it was a lack of in-depth marketing help. They wanted to know exactly how to find their target audience and build their mailing list, and they needed to know how to make the idea of joining a mastermind group compelling and valuable.

Many wanted more advanced facilitation skills, the kind that set you apart so people don’t just want to join a mastermind group, they want to join YOUR mastermind group.

Most importantly, ALL of them said this: they want to hang out with other mastermind group Facilitators, to be with their community of colleagues. To get the sharing, support and accountability that comes from being IN a mastermind group.

So I listened, and then created this specially designed program to make sure that you get what you want and need.

You Will Learn

During your membership, you’ll receive mentoring, marketing training, and business model design and efficiency ideas, along with advanced facilitation skills lessons, all to help you build extraordinary mastermind groups of your own.

I’ve created two levels of Synergy so you can get exactly what you want:

Synergy Core – advanced training in marketing and facilitation, plus a monthly group Q+A session

Synergy Excel – everything in Core, and most importantly, you’ll get the close support, brainstorming and accountability from your very own monthly mastermind group.

You’ll embark on an adventure to:

  • Make this year your best year yet: reach more members and fill more groups
  • Develop the systems you need to scale your business without sacrificing time or energy
  • Connect with your tribe – other mastermind group Facilitators who are building strong, successful groups
  • Outline your vision and develop a solid action plan to get there (and teach your members how to do the same thing!)
  • Leap over hurdles – get help from me and the other Facilitators to overcome challenges, share shortcuts and get answers to your questions when you need them
  • Reach your potential through sharing honest insights, creative ideas, and best practices
  • Design savvy, modern marketing campaigns that work
  • Sharpen your mastermind group facilitation skills with training and case studies
  • Establish your expertise and credibility with individuals and organizations by taking the test to become a Certified Mastermind Group Facilitator™ (optional)

WHAT YOU’LL MASTER IN THE SYNERGY MENTORING PROGRAM

What issues prevent you from realizing your goals?

Most issues fall within three focus areas. I have designed lessons in all three of these areas so that you can build a strong, efficient business.

MARKETING & SALES

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION & SYSTEMS

FACILITATION SKILLS

Each month I’ll post practical, action-oriented video lessons, including topics such as:

FOCUS 1: MARKET AND SELL YOUR GROUPS

If you struggle to fill your groups, find the right people, or sell the value of masterminding, you’ll discover how to find and convert perfect prospects into perfect members.

And if you’re already selling memberships, you’ll market your groups faster and more efficiently with an array of the most up-to-date marketing and sales techniques including:

  • Plan your marketing campaign from start to finish
  • Get known and building your audience
  • Drive targeted traffic to your website
  • Write effective marketing copy to attract members
  • Market your groups, whether they’re local or virtual
  • Build your email list and use email marketing to nurture prospects and make direct sales
  • Chart your personal branding strategy as a mastermind group Facilitator*
  • Design and run a Facebook advertising campaign*
  • Have effective conversations that close the sale*
  • Use high-touch marketing techniques for that special mastermind group*
  • Sell from the stage*
  • Build an unforgettable mastermind group brand*
  • Map your content marketing strategy*

*These lessons included in Synergy Excel only

Once your mastermind groups start to fill up, you need to be confident that you can run your groups (and your business) effectively and efficiently. That’s why a key part of Synergy helps you…

FOCUS 2: STREAMLINE YOUR BUSINESS PROCESSES

Solid business strategies and efficient systems are key to making your role as a Facilitator rewarding and profitable, without feeling overwhelmed or overworked.

With the right business model, pricing and resources, you can scale, or reach a new income level without running out of time or energy. As part of the program, you’ll learn essential business administration strategies to help you:

  • Design your mastermind group business model: from small, intimate mastermind groups and scaling up to mega mastermind groups, using the Compass Visual Business Roadmap*
  • Choose the right techniques for managing your members’ meeting attendance, progress, goals, and accountability*
  • Set a goal and vision for your mastermind group business, and know specifically what to do to get you there*
  • Get feedback from your members to help shape your group in the future*
  • Develop your Signature System to make your group unique*
  • Design your Success System to ensure your members get extraordinary value from your group*
  • Work with a team to get more done*
  • Construct mega mastermind groups of 50 members or more*
  • Design live events and virtual intensives*
  • Plan your profit model*
  • Design Retreat Weekends for your members*

*These lessons included in Synergy Excel only

FOCUS 3: INCREASE YOUR MASTERY WITH ADVANCED FACILITATION SKILLS

By building on your current skills as a Facilitator, you become more valuable and attractive to your members.

The most experienced Facilitators find it essential to stay up-to-date with best practice methods. As part of the program, you’ll access skill-building lessons to help:

  • Take the conversation deeper so your members get what they need
  • Ask questions for clarity and insight
  • Use the One Action Now system with your members
  • Encourage members to speak up and actively bring their ideas and challenges to the group
  • Onboard new members effectively to build trust and rapport
  • Learn best practices in onboarding, introductions, hot seats and learn how other Facilitators run their meetings
  • Deal with misbehaving members professionally and effectively
  • Handle off-topic items, knowing when to stick to the agenda and when to follow the conversation
  • Take the conversation deeper so your members get what they need*
  • Hold your members accountable*
  • Keep track of members’ goals and results*
  • Help members to make wise decisions*
  • Run virtual mastermind groups*
  • Plan effective exit strategies*
  • Design exercises to use with your members*

*These lessons included in Synergy Excel only

Meet Your Group of Active, Ambitious Facilitators

I have two levels of Synergy, based on what’s best for you. In both levels you’ll share best practices and get creative answers to your questions from all members in Synergy.

As part of your Synergy Excel membership, you’ll be a member in your own dedicated, private mastermind group. Imagine a mastermind group of Facilitators who hold your feet to the fire so that you can be accountable for putting your plans into action. You’ll be in the Hot Seat in each monthly meeting to bring your questions and challenges to the brainstorming session.

The strength of the group lets you find creative answers to your challenges, share knowledge and experience, and find support and accountability to help you achieve your goals.

 Find out what’s working well for others, what tools and resources are really bringing results and save time by getting focused answers from a group that cares about your success.

If You Are Not Ready to Commit to Monthly Mastermind Group Meetings

Synergy Excel membership includes monthly mastermind group meetings, and you must commit to attend and participate fully.

However, if you are not ready to commit to monthly mastermind group meetings, join Synergy Core. With Core membership, you won’t be part of a monthly mastermind group, but you still get monthly Jam Sessions — virtual group mentoring meetings directly with me. Pick my brains and ask me anything!

And, of course, you get access to me and all Synergy members through our exclusive online message forum.

What Members Say

“I’ve facilitated masterminds before I met Karyn, and then as I implemented the stuff that I learned through Synergy, one of my members said to me, ‘You know, I was going to quit the mastermind group, but it’s gotten so much better that I’m going to stay!’ I’m partnering with two large organizations to offer mastermind groups to their members. Some groups are huge; they’re in 26 states. I’m meeting with the founder of that group on Friday morning. I wouldn’t have had the confidence, nor would I have had the structure, had I not been in Synergy.”

HERE’S WHY I’M DOING THIS

Hi, I’m Karyn Greenstreet. I’ve been running mastermind groups since 1994, and teaching people to start and run successful mastermind groups for over 15 years.

WHY DO I DO IT?

One reason: People crave a successful, satisfying personal and professional life — and they haven’t been able to create it on their own. We need more mastermind groups on the planet to support people while they journey towards their ideal life.

And I can’t do it alone: we need skilled, passionate mastermind group Facilitators, just like you, to populate every corner of this world with successful groups.

So, my job in life is to help you create the most rewarding, powerful, successful mastermind groups you could dream of!

That’s my vision. That’s my quest in life. What’s yours?

For over 30 years, I’ve been a small business owner and business consultant. I’ve taught over 290,000 people world-wide about how to grow their small businesses. And I wouldn’t have the success I’ve had without being part of a mastermind group of my own, so I know first-hand the value of masterminding.

In 2004, I created The Success Alliance website and classes to work closely with Facilitators like you. And now I can’t wait to share everything I know with you as part of the Synergy Mentoring Program!

What Members Say

“When Karyn first offered Synergy, I knew it was for me right away. I’ve been a coach for over 20 years and I was bored with it, had lost my passion for the work, and was looking for the next step for my business. I’ve been talking about masterminds for a long time and had never acted on it so when Synergy came along, I jumped. Since joining Synergy, I have moved my business forward in a big way, even to the point of renaming and rebranding it to reflect the change in direction I was taking. Friends and colleagues say they see my spark back and hear the passion in my voice. I feel unstoppable and tremendously supported by the family I joined through Synergy. Because of the mastermind I’m part of through Synergy I’ve let go of some work details I didn’t need to do, written and named a special report, formed my first, official mastermind group, successfully run two Taster of Masterminds to let people experience it for themselves, and built and published a membership site for my members. And that’s only the beginning of what’s in store for me, my clients, and my business. Thank you, Karyn, for creating this powerful program and changing my life!”

“I facilitate two mastermind groups for a living and even took a three-day class to certify myself. Karyn, your information showed me new ideas that I hadn’t seen before. I’m impressed, and I’m in action about my new mastermind group.”
