Be a better leader this year
If that thought has been in your mind, then Elevate the Quiet Leader in You Mastermind may be just right for you.
Subtly powerful, this Mastermind (MM) for Quiet Leaders (QLs) shifts the way you think about yourself and how you work with others. You learn what outstanding leaders do and experiment with leadership behaviors that are proven to make a real difference. Participants have grown tremendously through their experiences in this small group environment.
I am opening up a limited number of MM groups this year, with one starting in April, so if you are a QL who wants to make a difference, apply today.
What are Quiet Leaders? QLs are some of the most passionate, successful leaders in history and today. They view themselves as more naturally introverted than extroverted, yet flex their approach to be effective in different situations. Because all introverted leaders know they must extrovert themselves at times to achieve their goals.
Benefits are Many
Participating in Elevate the Quiet Leader in You MM brings a treasure chest of rewarding experiences. QLs find the small group environment energizing, confidential and comfortable. Their goal to be the best leaders they can be stays top of mind. They think more creatively when faced with challenging situations. Take action they hadn’t considered before. Communicate, delegate and develop their people in ways that lead to better results. And their leadership is sought for growth opportunities.
“With every group call, I walked away with a thought or idea that I incorporated into my thinking or put into practice with my team. Our 1:1 coaching conversations helped me refine my thinking. You challenged me and yet allowed me to go at my own pace. You helped me get legs on a project I’ve wanted to launch for some time.” Director, Global Company
Why a Mastermind for Quiet Leaders
My passion and purpose is drawing out the best in QLs. I have been coaching QLs for years. For the last three years, I have observed what happens when good, solid leaders broaden their thinking and shift the way they deal with situations because of their experiences in this Mastermind. Participants said they found themselves thinking about and applying the insights garnered from the sessions long afterwards. It’s powerful!
I facilitate MMs for QLs because they make a difference. I’m opening up more this year because I want more QLs, and their companies, to benefit from their enhanced leadership skills, expressed in their own unique ways.
MMs are a wonderful way to learn more about yourself, others and proven success factors. I have benefitted from them myself. In fact, I have participated in a number of MMs over the years to experience different approaches and benefit from the content and growth opportunities for me. I built some wonderful relationships with people I met, but the introvert in me found the groups with 8, 12, 16 participants to be too big. I prefer a smaller setting where everyone has opportunity to talk and, as facilitator, I get to know each participant. My Mastermind has a maximum of five and minimum of three participants in the groups.
Participants say they value the small size because they get so much more from the discussions. They have a chance to talk, if they want it. Plus, in our monthly 1:1 coaching sessions (included) they get traction on whatever topics they want to discuss.
I truly believe and always tell my clients what Napoleon Hill said many years ago.
“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the mastermind].”
It’s incredible what comes from that third mind, which would never exist on its own.
The best leaders know that leadership is a continuous learning experience. A never-ending practice. Many QLs question themselves, their thoughts, their actions, their responses. In this MM you learn that it’s not uncommon for QLs to doubt themselves. In fact, doubt often stimulates growth.
Is this Mastermind for You?
Elevate the Quiet Leader in You MM is for you if you are a leader with good instincts, have a solid reputation and want to become an even better leader. When you speak up, people listen because they know you typically are thoughtful about what you say. You can be spontaneous, in fact you often are. But your norm is to be thoughtful about decisions, moves, best actions.
■ good listener, honest, positive attitude
■ more introverted than extroverted
■ willing to stretch your comfort zone
■ willing to share experiences
■ want to be your best self
■ committed to your goals and those of the group
■ ready to take action
■ in a leadership role
The best QLs (and all leaders) model what is right, choose the high road. Inspire others through their words and actions. Look for what can be improved. Challenge the norm. Enable others to stretch, grow, experiment. Develop their people. Facilitate change. We cover these topics in our group sessions.
We discuss what it takes to be an exemplary leader, specific leadership behaviors proven to make a positive difference, habits that serve you, how your mindset affects your actions as a leader, and more.
You learn from others as we discuss the content, and gain insight from their questions, experiences and perspectives. Your participation stimulates you to take action toward your goals. And with a 1:1 coaching call each month focused on you, all about you, you get to delve into topics you want to talk about in a way that helps you grow even more.
You are provided tools, a platform, a sounding board and coaching to be the best leader you can be.
