As you climb the corporate ladder, you’re also climbing a triangle to the peak. The higher up you get, the fewer people there are at the top. When things are running smoothly, all is well. Things just tick along as they normally do. But how about when you run into a problem? Then there are fewer people to share ideas with. That’s how Mastermind Groups help you solve business problems
It gets even stickier when you are self-employed – you have no corporate headquarters to rely on for advice, and you have no peers in senior management to bounce ideas off of and to ask advice from.
Welcome to the world of High Stakes positions. Sometimes, it may feel like you are operating in isolation. But it doesn’t have to feel that way.
When you’re at the top, joining a Mastermind Group is recommended. When you’re part of a group, you’re instantly surrounded by peers who think big and act on their ideas, just like you. Let’s face it – when you’re at the top, it can be lonely. You’re working with people on the ground level – and while those people are useful cogs that are part of the machine and are needed to get the job done, they won’t help you to get ahead. They won’t give you ideas or solutions to the business problems your company is facing. They are looking to get ahead for themselves, to earn a paycheck, and to survive from day to day.
Realistically speaking, you are operating on a whole other level. In order to grow, you need to surround yourself with people who are smarter and more successful than you – that’s what will help you get ahead. They are vested in helping you to solve business problems. Why? Three reasons; 1. Because that’s one of the cornerstone reasons High Stakes was founded on, 2. When you succeed all members succeed, and 3. Your Mastermind partners know that you will do the same for them. Win, win, win.
The question to ask yourself is, “Am I committed to my own goal achievement?” If the answer is yes, read on.
High Stakes Mastermind Groups are made up of some of the smartest, strongest, and best thinkers and leaders in your industries. These people will help you to achieve your specific goals, come up with thoughtful, useful and timely information, teach you best practices and lead you to success. Ultimately, the members of these groups will add value to your life, and to the lives and careers of our group members.
These people didn’t get to be tops in their executive roles for no reason. They have much to contribute. Imagine if you had them act as each other’s allies, colleagues and collaborators? These people will give you ideas for solving problems in your business, energize you and give you the momentum to reach your goals, whatever they are. They will improve your communications skills, introduce you to other people and to new ideas and methods you can apply to your company.
If you consider yourself to be a High Stakes thinker, surround yourself with like people. After all, you become who you associate with. And it’s these people who will understand your issues, support you, provide you with ideas for solutions, help you with brainstorming, and challenge you to become a better version of yourself.
