A business mastermind group is a great idea for coaches and consultants because it can really help your business thrive while you help your clients grow theirs. As a coach or consultant, you face many challenges in dealing with a wide range of personalities and their respective business issues. If you are looking for a way to help them face their business challenges (and to face yours) head on, it’s time to consider a business mastermind group.
Mastermind groups are wonderful for brainstorming ideas, and as a business coach or consultant you know that what you need a lot of are fresh new ideas. Your clients come to you with such a wide range of business challenges, there are bound to be times when you are left racking your brain as you try to come up with ideas which will help. Perhaps there’s a resource you need to find, or it would be helpful for you to find someone with experience in a particular field.
Imagine what a valuable resource a group of four to six small business owners, a mastermind group, would be in brainstorming ideas. Now imagine how much more powerful that group would be given they meet regularly and get to know you and your business well. These are people who are also running a small business and they know how many balls you are juggling and what it’s like to be in your shoes. A great mastermind group is also made up of people with differing backgrounds and skills, which is valuable in providing you with the wider perspective both you and your clients need to be successful.
A mastermind group for coaches and consultants has an additional benefit of giving you support and a sense of a team. Given the work that you do, you realize the power of support; you know that the possibility of success is much greater when you seek the feedback and knowledge of other skilled professionals. Toiling away alone is not only less fun, it is less likely to lead to success.
As Napoleon Hill said in his classic book Think and Grow Rich, “A Mastermind alliance is based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual and temporal advancement…No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind (the Mastermind). ” For more information about the synergy, accountability and results that you can expect from a business mastermind group this free video will be helpful.
As a coach or consultant, you are especially aware of the power of the mastermind – after all, whether they know it or not, people come to you to create this dynamic third mind of the mastermind with you. A business mastermind group of your own will provide you with the support you need to propel your own business forward and you will help your own clients all the more as a result. It might go without saying, as a coach or consultant chances are you are often encouraging people to seek the help and feedback they need. But do you do the same thing for yourself? With a mastermind group, you will be walking the talk and following your own valuable advice.
