Here is a little coach training on how to run a successful coach mastermind. When you have a coach mastermind that runs well, you’ll feel totally secure in your coaching business, not to mention that you’ll have the support and answers you need to take the next step in your coaching business success. Coach training (as mentioned in other articles on this same subject) has its limitations, and these methods for running your coach mastermind will help you break free from any limits that hold you back.
Coach Mastermind: Top Keys to Getting the Most Coach Training Benefits
- Get the group on the calls! Most coach masterminds fail before they ever get started because nobody shows up!
- Keep everyone involved! When you leave people out, you’ll tend to lose them.
- Make sure there’s lots of VALUE! If everyone is offering great coach training to each other, then everyone wins.
- Hold an air of DISCIPLINE & ACCOUNTABILITY! This will keep people’s attention, keep them coming back, and keep them in action.
Leadership Roles in Your Coach Mastermind: Use Your Coach Training to Find Them
The Group Leader
Choose a group leader for your coach mastermind. Your group leader should be comfortable taking charge, offering great coach training, and making results happen. They should be the type of person that says, “Ok, let’s get on with it!” Look for that no-nonsense DRIVER type of personality. That will make a good leader in your coach mastermind group.
Your group leader should do the following:
- Manage the ‘big picture’ and be the one responsible for the mastermind’s success. THE BUCK STOPS HERE!
- Keep the conversations going that you’ve learned in your coach training, and keep the coaches participating. Push people when needed. Ask lots of questions to prompt answers.
- Make decisions when the group can’t come to an answer. If there’s an impasse, then break it and just move forward.
- Keep the discipline and accountability going. Make sure people follow through on their promises and don’t settle for less.
The Group Organizer
Choose a group organizer. Your group organizer should be comfortable keeping all the coach mastermind’s ducks in a row, going over all the details that other people miss, and just handling any organizational tasks that are required of the group. They should be the type of person that says, “Wait! We missed something that we need to cover. Let’s slow down and make sure we have all the details handled first!” That will make a good organizer in your coach mastermind group.
Your group organizer should do the following:
- Email a reminder of the call (the day before and the day of).
- Make sure that the calls are scheduled at times that most everyone in the group can make. Check with people via email and phone if needed.
- Keep notes on accountabilities and any other coach training info that’s needed (keep things in order).
- Make an audio recording of each call for the coaches that miss the call and for anyone that wants to review the results.
Following these steps for running a coach mastermind group will help you and your members get the most out of this dynamic coach training.
