Are you working on your mastermind group design ideas for 2023?

Then you have 12 big decisions to make to ensure your group is successful.

If you are new to mastermind groups, this introductory-level class will teach you the basics of designing a successful mastermind group. In this class, we focus on the preliminary decisions you need to make when you are in the “developmental stage” of designing your mastermind group.

I share my reliable project plan to galvanize and focus your actions between now and January, so you can create a solid foundation, knowing you’ve made all the right decisions.

Please note that this is not a class about marketing and filling your group. It’s all about making the 12 big design decisions before you can begin marketing. We discuss the pros/cons of each option so you can create a strong, thriving mastermind group for your members.

Master this design process and use it repeatedly for each new group you launch!

You will learn

In this workshop, you’ll work on the 12 Big Decisions you need to make to design a successful mastermind group:

  • Who should join my group?
  • Should I facilitate, participate, or both?
  • What is the topic/focus of my group?
  • How many members in a group?
  • Where to hold meetings? (And can virtual meetings work?)
  • How often should we meet?
  • Should my group be free or paid?
  • What is the meeting agenda and format?
  • How do I screen applicants to find the right members?
  • What should I include in the group rules?
  • How do I design accountability structures?
  • How can I ensure my members get value from my group?

“I took your program last year. Next Wednesday I’m doing a two hour group support meeting for a local church. We were expecting 20 to 40 people. They cutoff registration at 130, and had to schedule another meeting in next month to handle the overflow!

I just wanted you to know that what you teach is growing and impacting hundreds, if not thousands, of people. I would strongly recommend your mastermind program – and be prepared for amazing things to happen as a result!”
