In this episode, I’m talking about Mastermind Groups – or more generally, the why and how of building a structured network of support and accountability.
I feel really strongly about this topic. Creating intentional systems of support may feel like a “nice to have” for so many people, but it’s actually so, so deeply important and impactful.
So often, when I talk to the Executive Directors and CEOs that I work with, and the topic of leadership comes up, I find myself in a conversation about how lonely it all can be. Even for people who have a great relationship with their team and a strong board of directors, so much of what we do as leaders requires us to be out on the proverbial limb, alone.
This also feels like a really timely topic… This feeling of – and in many ways, actual – isolation has only been exacerbated by the pandemic.
So today I want to share what turned out to be one of the most impactful leadership strategies I’ve ever deployed – and I don’t say that lightly. The ED Collective that I was part of for more than half my time as an ED changed almost everything about how I lead.
