A mastermind group is a very valuable commodity in your personal development. The people you select could either help or hinder your progress. The goal is to select a group of individuals that produces the right synergy. Your Mastermind Group should be limited to six people; five plus yourself. Your group may become known as the power of 6 if the proper combination of personalities is selected.
The first person selected is the most important because that person will help you acquire the other four. You want to select someone who is successful in his or her field of endeavors. You are seeking people who are ambitious, goal oriented and open-minded. You are looking for positive minded people and not negative people who will bring down the atmosphere of the meeting. A whole bunch of whiners will make your meeting a forum for people complaining about life. The point of the master group is to support and advise each other not to have a monthly pity party. Your candidates must have real life experiences or have overcome difficult obstacles in his or her life. You want to select people from different industry that complement each other in a specific way. You might not want to choose 5 people in the same exact industry as yourself.
Variety is the spice of life so you want to make sure that diversity is well represented within your group. You don’t want your mastermind group to suffer from group think. Different backgrounds and knowledge will allow you to get different perspectives for any issues being discussed. If group think occurs, then an environment of helping each other toward success in your individual businesses will cease to exist. The make up of the group whether all men, all women or a combination of the two is critical also.
The success of your mastermind group for your personal development is based entirely on your selection of the individuals for your group. The productivity of your “power of 6” will help transform your development to the next level. This relationship can only be win-win as long as your have the correct complement of people in your group. The choice is yours so choose wisely.
