I don’t have it all figured out. Do you?
Whew. Glad to hear it. I thought I was the only one.
I often tell my clients that the two most dangerous words in the English language are “I know.” The assumption that we’ve learned all there is to know about a subject or that we have nothing new to learn is, uh, dangerous. There’s plenty of literature out there about the nature of change and how we’ve all got to keep up and how you grow or you get left behind. I don’t know if that’s true or not, or if it just feels that way because we now have access to so much more information than ever before. Maybe the world has always been moving this fast, but now we have more windows to look out and see the blinding speed at which we’re moving.
What I think is this–shared wisdom and knowledge have exponential impact on an organization. We’re not talking 1 + 1 = 2. We’re talking 1 + 1 = 10. When we share learnings either across organizations or within organizations, the impact is exponential.
Thus the value of the MasterMind group.
A MasterMind group is designed to bring smart people with different backgrounds in a room around a common challenge. Generally, one person presents a case study from their organization, then asks for feedback from the other members about how to best address the challenges in that case study. Often, there will be teaching about the particular topic to go along with the case study. “Aha” moments follow. Every time.
Because I believe in the power of shared wisdom, I make it a regular part of my business. Check out my Facebook page to see when my next group starts.
