What to Expect

Mastermind type groups (we call ours a Master Class) are increasingly popular to connect those of like minds and diverse backgrounds. The intent is to gather about 8 individuals together in a way that brings about enrichment, knowledge, support, and encouragement, in a safe environment where you can express yourself completely and openly without judgment. Your peers are there to guide and assist when you need to bounce ideas, stretch your thinking, or provide a different way of seeing things. You will also explore and learn together about key topics of interest.

Our Master Class enables you to further develop and share your professional lives on a regular basis with a small group of women of diverse expertise and experiences. The group will function as an “Advisory Board” for participants. The experience and learning is rich with opportunities and tends to broaden the horizons of the participants in ways you would have never expected. This can come from sharing advice, pushing to take that next step, starting a new business, or learning about new things that will broaden your perspective.

Professional goals women help each other with include:

navigating a male dominated C-suite

finding ways to collaborate

advancing to senior, C-suite, or board roles

transitioning out of your current role

exchanging best practices

functioning as mother, wife, executive, etc.

Equally important is the desire to help each other navigate personal goals such as:

learning from and supporting one another around issues such as striving for work/life balance

handling the toll extensive business travel or long work hours can have on children and families

grappling with personal issues such as health or relationship challenges

Here are 7 reasons why it might be right for you:

  1. You’ll be part of an exclusive group. The other members need you as much as you need them, so quality of experience and knowledge is crucial to all involved.
  2. Advisement. Once you are involved in our Master Class, that feeling of being all alone in your business is gone. You will use the members as your Advisory Board.
  3. Collaboration is key. You may find certain members of the group would be perfect to partner with on some key projects, or you may be the perfect member for someone else. The idea is to maximize the knowledge around you.
  4. Extend your network. By joining a group of ambitious and like-minded women.
  5. New learning. Each of us are unique and therefore bring a variety of skills, gifts, experience, and connections. By sharing your challenges, it’s almost certain that someone in the group will have a solution for you or you may be the one to assist with a solution, connection, or tactic for another member.
  6. Confidentiality. Knowing that all sessions are strictly confidential enables you to show up as who you really are and not have to worry about judgment, criticism, or anything else that doesn’t support you being the absolute best you can be.
  7. Think bigger. Being in our Master Class will truly support you having a Master Mind!! You cannot help but think bigger and stretch beyond your boundaries when surrounded by amazing people doing amazing things.

Our Master Classes are incredible and provide an opportunity for you to grow in ways you never thought possible.

Reasons to participate in a Mastermind according to Forbes

Mastermind groups are relatively new to most people but are popping up all over the world so that we may learn and grow from each other. Napoleon Hill created the concept about 75 years ago with his book, “Think and Grow Rich”. A Mastermind group is designed to assist you in navigating through challenges using the collective intelligence of others.
A Mastermind works by having a small group of diverse individuals that meet on a monthly basis to tackle challenges and problems together. It is designed so that you may lean on each other, provide advice, share connections, and even do business with each other when appropriate. It is very much a peer to peer mentoring relationship, and you will most likely experience marked changes in yourself and your career. There will be a facilitator to ensure that all participants have floor time and the opportunity to maximize the time together.
