 What can You expect?

In practice, Mastermind Group for First-time Leaders takes the form of a series of informal yet structured online meetings led and facilitated by an experienced coach.
You will bring the most relevant topics for you and ask for advice from others. You will also listen and advise your peers from the group. 
You will learn from the experience and best practices of others and share your wisdom with them.
You will experience and discuss different points of view, give and receive honest feedback, and test the ideas you might have, all in a safe and confidential environment.

Some logistics:

You will meet bi-weekly for 3 months in a group of 4 to 6 participants.
Each meeting will last 90-120 minutes to give enough time for each group member.
Meetings will be held online and will  happen via zoom.
The program will start in September and the exact starting date and time of the meetings will be agreed with participants.
Every meeting will have a set structure:
  • Round of success – each session (except the 1st one) will start with sharing success stories and achievements;
  • Hot-Seat – for every meeting you will bring a topic or a challenge for which you need advice from the group. You will have your hot-seat time to share it and ask your question. Your peers will share their ideas with you to help you solve it.
  • We will close each session with a commitment/plan – this will be an excellent motivation for action.
The 3-month program consists of:
  • a goal-setting coaching session at the start of the program,
  • 6 group meetings (2 per month)
  • 3 individual coaching sessions through the period of the program (1 per month of a program)
