What is a Mastermind Group?
Are you wondering how to form a mastermind group? A mastermind group is a collaborative set of individuals that are looking for something in common in order to become a success. It is a support group. A mastermind group can be formed to deal with personal issues, like hobbies, or spiritual factors, or illness. It can also be related to business or a professional life.
A mastermind group should meet at least once a month, or more frequently if the members so desire. If the group meets less than once a month, the reason for the existence of the group will evaporate.
The group should meet in person. Teleconferencing is not a good approach, in part because the commitment to the group and its approach will be there if there is active and physical participation at the same location.
The meeting time depends on how many individuals are attending the meeting. You should reserve 10-20 minutes for each person's part of the speaking portion of the meeting. Then reserve 20-30 minutes for a general discussion of solutions.
Finally, the leader of the group should be the one that organizes the group to begin with.
