One of the best ways to enhance your coaching career is to be part of a mastermind group. If you aren’t in one, you should be. In his seminal book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill said “No individual may have great power without availing himself of the Mastermind. Great power can be accumulated through no other principle.” The concept is simple–a group of peers who discuss ideas and contribute information, insight, feedback and accountability to each other. The outcomes can be extraordinary.
Consider the possibility that you are the only limitation on your coaching career and even on your life. Whatever happens around you, happens, and there are limitless permutations. But how you handle those permutations, whether in life or in your coaching career, is up to you. Your mindset, your expectations, your belief system, how you spend your time, all these arise from internal factors. And because they are internal, your perspective on them is limited by whatever blindspots you have, and consequently your options are limited by them as well. We all have blind spots, and they can compromise our lives and our businesses. A mastermind brings multiple perspectives from outside of yourself to shed light on your blind spots so you have the opportunity to find different ways to manage or to approach what happens outside you.
In a mastermind, one idea will lead to another which will then create another, as the knowledge and experience of each member inspires the others. Everyone is more powerful because of the synergy generated within the group. In a coaching mastermind, each individual’s coaching career will have different weaknesses and strengths, but the combined skills and experience of the group can generate ideas and solutions any one person might never think of on her own. One change multiplied by another change multiplied by a third change, etc. creates the opportunity for an exponential increase in the value of the result.
Long term effects on your coaching career
A mastermind is a long term proposition. The people in your mastermind often become trusted life-long friends or business partners. You provide clarity and focus for each other, and an incubator for the knowledge and experience of you all. The peer pressure of the group provides strong support and accountability to make sure you move forward in productive ways in your coaching careers.
If you want to facilitate exponential success and growth in your coaching career, find a compatible mastermind and become a contributing member. Today!
