Master-mind Groups

The majesty of
master-mind groups

The most remarkable leaders I know are in the habit of regularly stepping off the field of play to work on yourself and on your business through tapping into the wisdom of your trusted peers from other  businesses.

I learned about the majesty of master-mind groups when I first read Napoleon Hill's classic book 35 years ago.

I began my own group almost immediately with a bunch of mates. We'd meet every week in a room detached from the home of a group member.

Since then I've been engaged in many groups personally, presented to over 100 CEO/Senior leader groups, and introduced (through collaboration) the concept to my professional speakers association.

I regard having a mentor/s and belonging to a master-mind group as the top two essentials for personal and business growth.

In the spirit of something better

You have a great business, full of great people, who are doing great work. Master-mind or peer groups are about being respectful and honouring of what has been and is, yet always with the intention that we are in the continuous pursuit of something better and turning great into remarkable.

The Appreciative Leader
Master-mind group

In June 2016 I launched The Appreciative Leader master-mind group with 5 leaders (Narelle Mason, Chris Packer, Darren Rix, Jamie Wilson, and Troy Beaston) operating in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia (my place of birth).

We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month. In between group gatherings I meet 1:1 with each member. We'd love you to join us a we grow to the maximum 15 members. Please note that operating in Ballarat is not essential to being a member. Should you live and work within comfortable driving distance you're very welcome. I myself drive 1.5 hours for the monthly gatherings and 1:1's.

You can download here a short document that outlines how our group works, the purpose of the group, value promises, protocols, roles and responsibilities of members, myself as chairperson, and the world-class presenters who join us each quarter.

Becoming a member means that you receive your signed, numbered, limited edition copy of The Appreciative Leader handbook, and have automatic membership of The Appreciative Leader Community.

or team based groups

My role in these groups is that of facilitator, group mentor, and strategic adviser.

These groups can be based around The Appreciative Leader as above or tailor-made to suit your team. Limited to 15 people.

When location based we meet once a month online with two of the five maximum number of members having the floor each month to focus solely on your needs, expectations, and desires.

The concept of members being based in a particular location is to make it easy for you to stay in touch and support each other between group gatherings, to increase your differencemaking impact in your community.

Darren RixFranchisee Avis Ballarat & Western Victoria, Budget Ballarat & Bendigo

At the start of 2015 it became clear on the road ahead for my business we were facing some serious challenges.

We had just purchased the Budget franchise and were experiencing inconsistent business results, some big rental agency changes, and some poor staff attitudes had crept in.

I had heard Ian speak at a function in 2014 and I had been impressed with the message of his talk that day.

Ian has worked as a mentor to me for the last 14 months. He's also run sessions and worked 1:1 with my staff.

We've made several small shifts in how we conduct our business that have made a significant difference with my key people, how we work, and to our results.

I'm now continuing the journey through membership of the master-mind group.

Next Step

Let's have a chat. You’ll be under no obligation. Should we agree that being a member of a master-mind group is right for you, we'll move to get you engaged.
