If you ask an older adult about their greatest regrets, they’ll probably tell you they regret not spending more time with loved ones, and spending too much time on work. As they near the end of their lives, they attest more and more that relationships matter most. And yet so many of us remain focused on professional goals rather than the relationships closest to us. Hopefully, we can learn from the regrets of others and embrace the power of relationships now as one of the most important aspects of a life well-lived. This is especially important for leaders of mastermind groups as they help each member become the best and most fully realized version of themselves.

 

In Western culture, we are often taught to overlook the importance of family, friendships, and relationships because of the emphasis placed on individual growth towards material success. Our education system focuses on accumulating knowledge and skills that you can apply to your career. However, students are...

Why You Should Cultivate Trust Among Your Mastermind Members

the speed of trust Oct 07, 2021

 

Trust forms the foundation for meaningful interpersonal relationships and organizational cohesion. Individuals who trust each other form bonds, cooperate, and work harmoniously towards a common objective. Conversely, a lack of trust between individuals causes power struggles, selfishness, and bitterness. As a result, individuals who don’t trust each other are less productive, less moral, and less motivated. This is not the outcome any of us want for our relationships!

 

This same dynamic also applies to groups. In fact, the effects of distrust become amplified when it comes to collectives and organizations. That is because a lack of trust amongst individuals in a group can lead to a culture of distrust which fosters infighting, ego gratification, and aggression. Thus an unhealthy environment breeds greater toxicity. This isn’t always the case, but it’s definitely the norm.

 

In this sense, you can consider the culture of a group or organization as...

Why Mastermind Leaders Should Apprentice Under Jesus

 

One of the most important parts of being an effective mastermind facilitator is to lead by example. Your members will look to you not just for guidance and support, but also for a mentor and role model. You should always remain aware of this: your members are observing your behavior and taking notice of your virtues and vices. 

 

This is not to say that you shouldn’t have any character flaws. That would be impossible. Instead, you should do your best to understand and acknowledge your flaws and practice self-awareness. Your members will appreciate your vulnerability and transparency about your shortcomings. They’ll feel inspired to work and improve upon their own flaws. 

 

We all learn behaviors and values from others. As a mastermind leader, you should be aware that many of your members are apprenticing under you. Moreover, you should apprentice under spiritual visionaries like Jesus. If this idea sounds familiar, that is because John Mark...

How to Avoid Self-Deception and Pride When Leading Your Mastermind Group

 

Leading a mastermind group is a deeply empowering, enriching, and noble pursuit. Thousands of mastermind facilitators around the world are becoming successful entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and coaches. However, whenever you find yourself in a position of power and authority, it’s important not to succumb to pride and self-deception and instead be selfless and humble.

 

As we know from history, power can have a corrupting influence on even well-intentioned leaders, and running a mastermind will make you a respected authority from the perspective of your members. It’s easy to see why Jesus cited pride and greed as some of the most common pitfalls to be avoided. What’s easy to overlook, however, is that pride and greed are not undertaken consciously, but rather through self-deception. 

 

You might gradually convince yourself that you are more deserving or worthy than others, without realizing that greed is driving your pursuit of material...

Daily Habits that Allow Mastermind Leaders to Stay Centered and Peaceful

The foundation for any personal transformation lies in daily habits and rituals. By shifting the way we spend our time each day, we can change our lives and the lives of others. This hits home for mastermind leaders especially, because they play a role in guiding and mentoring their members. 

 

Too often, mastermind leaders get stuck in a state of overwhelm and paralysis when contemplating the ambitious goals for themselves and their mastermind group. Instead, they should focus on a series of small adjustments to their daily life that will produce a cumulative impact on your long-term goals. We overestimate what we can do in a short time, but underestimate what we can do over the long haul.

 

These minor adjustments in your daily routine will result in compounding, exponential progress. Just as important as knowing which daily habits to embrace, however, is knowing which habits to avoid. Bad habits can be hard to break, but if you ignore them, they’ll hamper...

How Mastermind Leaders Can Find Fulfillment in Daily Life and Teach their Members to Do the Same

The Bible starts by saying, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth.” It goes on to state, however, that after all that hard work, “By the seventh day, God had finished his work, so on the seventh day he rested. Then, God blessed the seventh day and made it holy. 

You may recognize this particular passage of the Bible from John Mark Comer’s book The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. Comer discusses it in depth, and goes on to explain its significance. Comer explains why this passage is so important and how it represents the Sabbath - a period of rest, reflection, and religious observation. Comer explains how the idea of the Sabbath illustrates a broader philosophical significance of rest, recuperation, and introspection. He also explains that these periods of relaxation are increasingly overlooked by modern culture.

Comer goes on to list the most common objections to having the Sabbath become part of one’s lifestyle. He explains...

How Mastermind Leaders Can Tell if They're in an Unhealthy State of Hurry

 As early as the 1960s, futurists around the world took a look at the rapid advancement of labor-saving technologies and predicted that Americans in the future would work roughly half the amount of time per week. In fact, a famous senate subcommittee in 1967 was told that the average American would work just 22 hours per week for 27 weeks per year.

 

Despite futurists’ predictions about labor-saving technology, they could have never predicted just how transformational the technology of the coming decades would be to the productivity of the average American worker. It would have been impossible to predict technologies as disruptive as the internet, machine learning, cryptocurrency, or autopiloting vehicles. 

 

These exponentially advancing technologies drastically increased the productivity of the American workforce, but this didn’t have the effect that futurists predicted. Americans never saw the reduction in their workweeks these labor-saving...

In the summer of 2019, Wes Sierk found himself lying face-up in a hospital bed, close to death in a coma. He had sold his company for millions two weeks prior. Wes’s bedside was surrounded by his loved ones who wondered if he’d ever wake again. How could Wes’s life path have taken such a dramatic turn for the worse? 

 

Well, despite being a talented businessman, gifted leader, and brilliant executive, Wes had made his fair share of mistakes. The first time he’d tried to sell his company, Wes decided to negotiate the sale himself. He came from humble beginnings, and brought a sense of frugality to his business decisions. So, rather than contend with the exorbitant fees an investment banker would charge to negotiate the sale, Wes decided to try it solo.

 

While immersing himself in the minutiae of negotiating the sale, Wes neglected his responsibilities as CEO of the company. As a result, sales and morale dropped, and his potential buyer...

Why It's Important to Connect with the Perfect Person for Each Aspect of your Business

When Paul Heiss, the founder of a metal manufacturing company based in China, learned that the Chinese government would increase tariffs on aluminium scrap products, he faced a crisis. 

 

Some of his largest clients did business out of the U.S. and Europe, and the 25% tariff levied by China’s Custom Tariff Commission meant that Heiss simply couldn’t get his products to foreign clients affordably. 

 

Heiss soon realized that he would have to move his manufacturing operations to India. But how would he do it? That’s when he realized that he was asking the wrong question. Rather than asking how he’d accomplish this herculean task, he had to ask himself who could help him get it done. 

 

Heiss tasked his most trusted employees with finding the perfect Indian strategic partner. Heiss even created an impact filter which broke down the criteria that his team should look for in a partner and he decided on three basic points. The partner...
