The Power of MasterMind and Peer Group w/ Ellie Frey Zagel- 017
1 day ago
Peer groups, sometimes referred to as mastermind groups, can be incredibly helpful and effective at moving you along the path to achieving goals. Personally, I’ve been involved in peer groups for more than 12 years. In my former role as an executive director of a family business center, I put together 18 different peer groups for NextGen and NowGen business leaders. Today, I run a group on goal setting, and soon I’m launching the first Successful Generations’ peer group focused on wellness and leadership. In summary, this is a tool I know and believe in. I love peer groups because they are like having a trusted sounding board available to support, challenge, advise and cheer you on. And in return, you do the same for the other group members. The group’s success is based on each member’s success, so time and participation are required. In this solo-episode, I do a deep dive into peer groups—giving you some definitions, sharing my experiences, and explaining what they are and what they’re not. I leave you with a checklist and an exercise to help you identify if a peer group is right for you.
