Make a 1° degree shift

4 MasterMinds
8 Individuals per group
1 Personal Coaching Call
(Dates TBD)

Move Towards What You Want

What would making a 1° change in your life towards personal growth do for your relationships, career and your overall well-being?

Within this four week MasterMind, my goal is to help you:

  • identify the area of life where you want to make that 1° change
  • understand why it’s important to make that change
  • define the direction you want to go in
  • develop a simple strategy to move you forward

MasterMind Outline:

Join other like-minded individuals on a journey of personal growth. Though your objectives for growth may differ, you can leverage the learning of others, and bring a greater sense of awareness to your own growth.

Each week, we’ll review key points of the content in order reflect and digest the Laws of Growth mentioned below. Yes, that means your contribution to the group is an important part of a MasterMind adding an element of community to the process as you learn and grow together. (It will be to your benefit to purchase or borrow the book from a library/friend, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell.)

Included is a personal coaching session (45-60min) so we can dive a little deeper into where it is that you’re wanting to see change and growth.

Below are the 4 laws we’ll cover from John Maxwell’s Book The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth:

The Law of Intentionality

The Law of the Rubber Band

The Law of expansion

The Law of contribution

what others have said…

The Mastermind Class was an excellent opportunity to share and listen to other leaders and the values they apply in their business conduct. Mike walked with the group in exploring these ideas instead of just providing a path with a predetermined destination. Great group! Thanks for the experience.

- Chad

I thought that the Mastermind was very helpful, as it pertains to goal setting and legacy building. Each week I was able to continue the process of overcoming my fear of failure, while erasing my limiting beliefs. The group setting reminded me that I’m not alone, while helping me process my challenges through the thoughtful reflection of others.

- Brian

Growth happens in small steps taken regularly in the direction of your vision.


What is a MasterMind?

A MasterMind is formed when individuals come together with the common goal of learning, growing and moving towards their goals around a common theme, idea, or material (often from a book or author).

Every time a group of people are together (virtually or physically), the DNA of that particular group is unique. No two people have the exact same perspective because no two people have lived the exact same life. We may have VERY similar experiences, but we come with different personalities, talents, relationships etc that make us truly unique. So collectively we acknowledge that there is much to learn not just around the content but the people who are engaging it with us. 

Who is this for?

It’s for those who want different results than what they currently have and understand that their personal development is a major component to fill in that gap.

You may have a vague or even a really clear picture of where you want to be but can’t see the path forward. Coaching is about you figuring out what that next step is AND holding you accountable to take that step.

These Four Weeks will be a great start in bringing both an awareness of & action towards the personal changes you can make to become who you see yourself being.

How much will I be expected to share with the group?

I totally get this question, and I understand there’s different reasons for asking. I will say that there will be an expectation to participate as the community aspect of coaching can enhance your learning beyond simple observation. The objective is not for you to simply hear from the coach, but to hear from each other which relies on the bold willingness of participants to share. How much you share is up to you, but seeing as the group is there to grow, beginning to step out of your comfort zone in this way can be liberating. Sharing what you’ve learned with others, also helps to establish that learning because of the simple fact that now others know what you’ve learned and can increase your awareness and responsibility to do something with what you’ve learned.

When will MasterMinds occur?

Does this include 1 on 1 Coaching Calls?

Yes, this includes a personal coaching session to help you further focus in on your desired growth.

What will the expectations be of the group?

The group members will be asked to keep all sharing confidential within the group and this will be stressed highly because a safe environment is key.

  • Showing up on time to each call making this a priority in your week
  • Finding a quiet place where you can be distraction free during calls
  • Avoid multi-tasking during the group
  • Participate in the conversations
  • Respect others opinions & learning providing a non-judgemental atmosphere for everyone
  • Read the designated chapter(s) in advance (ideally a minimum of a day prior to group calls)
  • Remember you are there for your personal growth, not to provide answers/advice to other participants 
Is there a faith element to this?

As a person of faith, I come with that perspective because that’s who I am and it’s shaped my belief that you have an intrinsic value that is worth developing. As I recognize that’s who I am, I also recognize that you may not share all the same views. If you’re reading this, it’s likely we can agree on the importance of personal development and that is where we want to focus our energy. The book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth will make references to faith as John Maxwell used to be a pastor before he went into the business. So faith plays a big part in what he’s learned, but again, it is not the primary focus. I ask all participants, including myself, to share a mutual respect for each other as we mastermind and learn from the rich experiences/perspectives that each person has.

Our primary focus is to move towards that one degree shift in the area that you’re motivated to see change in.

Can I bring a MasterMind to my business/organization?

Simple answer…YES!  I believe that when established teams create shared experiences, especially a shared experience for growth, it establishes not just common language but provides greater understanding and synergy within the group.

What if I have a friend who I'd like to participate with?

That would be great! I will discount you $25 for your first friend who pays at the discounted price before the promotional date!

Do I need to buy the book - The 15 Invaluable Laws?

It will be helpful for you to have a copy of the book in hand. Whether it’s digital, audio or a hard copy it will add to the experience. You can purchase the book from Chapters/Indigo and the Kobo download is only $3.99 (at least at the time I’m looking it up). You can also get it from Amazon or support local if your local bookstore has it. 

The other option is to see if a friend or your public library has it. I haven’t found the digital version from my online library but I have found the audio version to download on hoopla but for some reason this book doesn’t have an easy way to jump to the individual chapters.

Last option is to watch John Maxwell teach on these laws through the RightNow media app. However, the only way to access this is if your church has an account with them. If they do, it’s likely they have a link on their website where you can create a free account.
