We've all heard it said, "it is lonely at the top". And that is so true for many of today's business leaders.
As a modern business leader you are responsible for all.the.things. Making sales, increasing profitability, staying healthy, retaining top talent, giving back to the community, spending QT with your family, the list goes on.
The problem is that this is that it is A LOT to be responsible for; I'd even argue that it is TOO MUCH for one leader to be responsible for.
In a perfect world, business leaders like yourself have systems and automations in place along with reliable team mates to delegate projects to BUT we also know that we don't live in a perfect world and the reality is more like working consistently for many years before we arrive at that ideal.
The consistent hard work that's required to get there can be less than exciting. Business leaders like you are human after all, and staying encouraged and sharp can be challenging for even the most disciplined and well connected leaders.
Which is why I believe all leaders need a mastermind group to hold them accountable to being their best selves and supporting them in maximizing their lives and businesses for productivity, profitability, and peace. Being surrounded by others like yourself helps you remember that you too can prevail and gives you access to practical solutions as well as a private space to share confidential information you can't share elsewhere.
Implementing: Let's take a look at a few ways you might get plugged into a mastermind group.
1. DIY Mastermind: Brainstorm 3-5 professionals in your network that you respect and have a good connection. Invite them to connect as a group for an hour every 2 weeks to share professional wins/challenges and support.
2. Industry Mastermind: Reach out to colleagues to find out if your industry association has a mastermind group you can join.
3. Niche Mastermind: Depending on what types of professional skills you're looking to develop or professional support you'd like to receive, you can find a variety of niche mastermind groups like Molly Fletcher's Game Changer Leadership Huddles (I'm a member) or Kathy Pop's Venture Masterminds or The Unsettled Mastermind. As you can see, lots of options exist.
Shameless plug: If you're interested in working with me, I'm in the process of creating a mastermind group to support women business leaders in Texas who want to buy, sell, or build a remarkable business.
If that's you and you'd like more info or just want to stay in the loop as the details emerge over the next few weeks, join our Facebook group here and sign up for my email newsletter.
What do you believe would be the biggest thing you could gain from involvement in a mastermind group?
