Small Business CEO Leadership Groups enable you to Reach your Greatest Potential — Faster and Easier
Professional development with a twist
A mastermind is a group of highly motivated people who are committed to growing personally and professionally. These groups meet regularly and are focused on leveraging the power of many minds coming together for a single purpose—to foster personal and professional growth and development, drive results, and realize the attainment of your goals through accountability.
In fact, joining a mastermind gets you out of your own box and helps you find answers faster than you would on your own. Anyone who owns a business or leads a team should be in one.”
You won’t be in business alone!
Peer mentoring at its best
Your mastermind group is also referred to as a peer mentoring group, a CEO leadership group, a business roundtable or personal board of directors. Napoleon Hill shared the concept in his book Think and Grow Rich, where he defined it as,
“The coordination of knowledge and effort in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.”

“The power of a CEO group stems from the willingness of its members to share their cumulative experience and expertise. Collectively, there are no blind spots…Some are great at sales. Some are great at product development. Some are running global businesses. Some run a local family business. What you need to have is diversity in that peer group so that everybody has someone who has been where they are going.”
Brian Davis Chair of CEO Groups, San Diego-based Vistage

Executive Team Mastermind
Are your monthly executive meetings effective? Are team members delivering on their goals and objectives?
An Executive Mastermind brings your executive team together every month. Each member is able to share their accomplishments, challenges, opportunities and ask for assistance in a supportive, motivating and results oriented environment.
We facilitate your meetings (in person or virtually) to ensure every team member is able to set clear goals, remain accountable to these goals, improve deliverables, and draw upon the strength of the team to identify opportunities, solutions or to brainstorm, share resources and more!
Contact us to explore this option for your organization.
What’s Unique about our Masterminds?
Groups are deliberately small – usually under 20! We believe the focus needs to be on you more often than less. When groups are too large, your engagement and involvement declines, defeating the purpose of the mastermind. We want to leverage the mastermind effect so you advance faster and ignite results sooner! Most of our masterminds have only 6-15 members.
Price tags are affordable. Many masterminds have a premium price tag leaving this opportunity out of reach for some small businesses. We have deliberately attempted to keep our groups affordable yet chocked full of value. We also offer different masterminds so you can find one that fits your needs. We want you to participate and gain great value, regardless of the mastermind program you choose.
Ignition Seat Sessions. True to the mastermind concept, every mastermind program we offer includes Ignition Seat (Hot Seat) Sessions. Each Ignition Seat session is a short, focused opportunity to be in the spotlight. The entire group focuses on you, your issue/goal/idea and offers recommendations, identifies pros and cons, ask probing questions to help you gain clarity, or shares resources to assist you. These sessions are the propulsion to your goals.
Our unique Habit Builder, powered by Actionable, provides you an opportunity to focus on practising a new behaviour or action for 30 days, thereby integrating your intentions into your daily life and business operations. In fact, commitments that are urgent to business/team needs and that are personally relevant gain traction more readily. With daily reminders your commitment remains top of mind. A quick check-in allows you to record your thoughts, actions and results on your journey to greater success with measurable results.
A private communication channel is also available for each mastermind to connect, share and gain additional insights between meetings. We leverage technology platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, or Slack to keep the momentum of our meetings moving forward and your conversations private.
1:1 Coaching with an Executive Coach allows you to focus on what is top of mind in a private setting. These sessions offer the personal perspective while also allowing you to draw upon the power of the mastermind group.
How to decide on a Mastermind Format
If you are located in the Vancouver, B.C. or Victoria, B.C. areas, we offer in-person mastermind groups. These face-to-face meetings are held in central locations. Many love the opportunity to connect in person and sit across the table during discussions. The power in the room is motivating and challenges you to up-your-game!
Virtual MastermindsWhen meeting in person isn’t possible or creates challenges a Virtual Mastermind is a fantastic option.
Time is a valuable commodity. Meeting virtually allows us to leverage technology and bring people from around the globe together via video-conference for a powerful and interactive environment.
We may not be in the same room physically but our virtual conference room can be equally as motivating and challenging and as powerful as an in-person group. This format requires the same focus and commitment as a face-to-face option but without the travel.
Expanding the geographical location of participants expands information sharing and more! Our Masterminds focus on accountability so you achieve the results you agree to pursue. Access to all meeting recordings is available to enhance learning and insights, so you can re-listen to discussions, gain new insights, and take time to process the information shared.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” King Solomon
