Welcome to your Personal Mastermind
You’re here because you’re done with being ordinary. You’ve come to the right place, because so are we! This is the place where you will learn, grow and work towards personal mastery.
We’re a group of life-long learners, and we’d love for you to join us. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know when a slot becomes available in one of our Personal Mastermind groups.
Who is the Personal Mastermind for?
Personal Mastermind is for people who want to learn, grow, and work towards personal mastery.
You don’t have to hold any title or qualification to join. What we look for in new members is a commitment to develop themselves and support others in their development.
We read, watch, and listen to interesting stuff, share our challenges and triumphs, and discuss ideas, strategies, and tools that help us become better versions of ourselves. It’s group coaching, but nothing like you’ve seen before!
Get ahead of the pack
Trying to learn and grow on your own is hard, which is why so many people give up and stay stuck in the pack. Join our Personal Mastermind community, and get access to the support, insight, and accountability you need to get and stay ahead.
You’ll have plenty of time to keep doing what you do best, because we meet online. Less traffic, more time to apply what you’re learning by taking bold action.
Our members share the good, bad, and ugly. You’ll give and receive support, encouragement and challenge to live up to your potential.
Your success matters to us! Our Personal Mastermind community loves hearing about your wins and will celebrate them right along with you.
Are You Ready to Find Out More?
How does it work?
When you join the Personal Mastermind programme, you’ll join a group full of like-minded people who are seeking to learn, grow, and develop.
Your first Personal Mastermind meeting
You’ll be sent details of the meeting and any pre-reading/watching. Check out the Discussion Material section for examples.
Your facilitator will lead the introductions, then you’ll dive right in to that week’s discussion.
You get what you give
Everyone is encouraged and expected to share their thoughts, insights, questions, and challenges, and to respond to others. We believe in being generous with our support and knowledge.
At each meeting, people have the option of sharing what they plan to work on between meetings.
During the week, you’ll take action, post updates in your group feed, and read and respond to others’ updates. Your Personal Mastermind facilitator is actively involved the group, so feel free to ask questions and share your thoughts.
We read and watch a range of material across the year. We look for materials that challenge our thinking, guide our discovery, and motivate us to action.
Below are some examples of what you might read or watch in one of our groups.
‘Playing Big’ by Tara Mohr
“When women play big, we make things happen.”
“Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’ but didn’t know how.”
This book is a response to that – while not everyone aspires to the corner office, we can learn to play bigger in the parts of life that are meaningful for us.
‘Joyful’ by Ingrid Fetell Lee
“Have you ever wondered why we stop to watch the orange glow that arrives before sunset?”
In this evocatively-written book, designer Ingrid Fetell takes us on a journey around the world, and our immediate environment, to help us understand the impact of aesthetics on how we feel, and gives practical advice on how we can “harness the power of our surroundings to live fuller, healthier, and truly joyful lives.”
‘Emotional Agility’ by Susan David
Get unstuck, embrace change and thrive in work and life.
“We all have niggling doubts… But many of us magnify these subjective negative thoughts into unshakeable facts… [and we find that] our emotions are in control of us…
Drawing on more than twenty years of academic and professional experience, Susan David has pioneered a new way of helping us to make peace with ourselves. Emotional Agility will help you to positively connect with your emotions, act according to your deepest values, and flourish.”
‘Think Again’ by Adam Grant
The power of knowing what you don’t know.
“Discover how rethinking can lead to excellence at work and wisdom in life…
Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world it might matter more that we can rethink and unlearn…
Think Again invites us to let go of views that are no longer serving us well ad prize mental flexibility, humility, and curiosity over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don’t know is wisdom.”
‘Grit’ by Angela Duckworth
Why passion and resilience are the secrets to success.
They matter more than IQ or skills, and once you know how to wield them, you’ll become unstoppable.
This book shows not only why grit is important, it teaches you how to become more ‘gritty’ and create the success you’ve been dreaming of.
‘Dare to Lead’ by Brené Brown
Brave work. Tough Conversations. Whole hearts.
“How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?”
Brené Brown’s work on vulnerability and shame is a total game-changer for powerful, heart-centred living.
In this book, she turns the spotlight on leadership, and shares proven, practical ways that we can create organisations that both bring out the best in people, and are the best for people.
‘Effortless’ by Greg McKeown
Make it easier to do what matters most. An insightful follow-on from the best-seller ‘Essentialism’, this book shares ways to make the essential things flow more easily.
