As we move into 2023 and onwards, high-performance individuals who genuinely work well together with each other and new technologies will easily beat many traditional companies. This unique mastermind programme will enable you to develop your skills and improve your results simultaneously. The results achieved will equally apply to your business and personal life.

We all need a mastermind group; our job is to give you access to a mastermind group while helping you develop the skills to create and grow your own.


Delegates must be ambitious for their own success and the group’s success and be prepared to demonstrate a degree of courage, discipline and honesty throughout the programme. Prospective delegates will be asked to complete a brief pro-forma about themselves and what they want to achieve from the programme. 

Attendees will be expected to contribute throughout the programme.


Each programme will have a specific theme based on the particular needs of the delegates.

Typical themes include leadership, business development, entrepreneurship, high-performance teams (face-to-face, virtual and hybrid) and managing complex projects (with or without direct authority),

Key programme elements in more detail

We’ve included some of the very key elements; these will be developed for each programme

Ground rules

Each participant is expected to attend critical sessions, be ambitious for themselves and the other members, and help other team members achieve their stated outcomes and ambitions. They must be prepared to articulate their key priorities and blockers.

Key success models and principles

Each group will agree on the success principles they are being prepared to work with. These will typically include 1) direction and purpose, 2) use of time energy and focus on a day-to-day basis, and 3) some feedback and feedforward process. We’ve found that exploring principles, states, beliefs, and values can be helpful; we also recommend members invest in developing their community and networks.

Where AI fits

We’re finding that AI is helping our research, marketing and feed-forward activities. In addition to https://openai.com/, https://bard.google.com/ Marshall will soon release a trial version of Marshall Bot for coaching. We encourage delegates to find and share success stories of pragmatic ways of improving their results using AI.

The keys to living an ‘earned/fulfilled life.’

These are ideas from Marshall Goldsmith

What leads to a fulfilled life: Purpose, meaning, achievement, relationship, engagement and happiness.

What might stop us? Inertia, we’re stuck in a programme that has ‘locked us in,’ obligation to others, lack of imagination, winded by the speed of change, distracted (eg by social media), run out of runway/time.

What practical action can we take: Need a reference group (the right community), use feed-forward, know who are stakeholders are, and serve and learn from them, weekly business plan review (BPR) or life plan review (LPR), help and be helped by the community.

Feed-forward, daily questions, KPIs, journalling, better questions to others, re-connecting to our sensory experience

These all help reconnect to where we are now, and can give us ideas to move forward.

Feed-forward, as above feed-forward is a vital part of our process. Feed-forward is being clear about what we want to achieve and asking colleagues the top decisive actions they would take if they were in our situation. When we’ve collected several ideas, we’ll talk them through with a mentor or colleague to ensure we choose the best actions to move us forward – Avoiding our natural biases, (we are still responsible for our final decision.)

When done correctly, feed-forward helps us build relationships and gets valuable information to help us succeed. The process allows us to differentiate between information gathering and decision-making – two distinct functions that many people confuse.

What next process

Sometimes it takes work to know when to invest, twist or fold. With the right processes, the right group can help with these difficult decisions. Prioritisation on how we use our time, energy and focus is critical, the right community can help. (The final decision is still ours.)

Maintaining and building on what you’ve learned.

We help you build on the learning and habits you’ve developed throughout the programme, whether you continue with us or with others.
