One of the major benefits of belonging to a mastermind group is accountability. In each meeting, you share your goals, milestones and tasks with the group. Your group helps keep you on track by asking you about your Action Plan and what you’ve accomplished so far.
How do you get your mastermind group members to set goals?
There are 3 steps to goal-setting:
It all starts with asking your members to voice a vision for what they want in their personal and professional lives. What’s the Big Vision for their future? What changes would they like to make?
Next, ask them to set intermediate goals (milestones) which will lead them towards that Big Vision. Have the group brainstorm about which intermediate goals will be most effective and which may be a waste of time, money or resources.
Finally, ask the member to write out an Action Plan for achieving each intermediate goal. The group can help by making sure the action plan is accurate, includes not only what will be done, by what the deadline is, and who is going to do the work.
Each member should review his/her Action Plan with the group and report on the status.
In each meeting, the members should discuss what they’ve accomplished and what’s next on their Action Plan. The other members should be listening for several things:
Are tasks getting done on a timely basis?
Is the member trying to do everything themselves, or are they delegating what can be delegated?
Are they adding in new tasks that will not lead them towards their Big Vision (busy work)?
Where have they overestimated or underestimated the time it takes to do tasks?
By setting and keeping goals, your mastermind group achieves success. Have your mastermind group members work diligently on all aspects of their dreams for success, from the Big Vision to their Action Plan.
