Learning Circle: Developing the Leader Within You 2.0

Career Conversations
Jan 27 - Mar 3, 2022, 7:00 PM (EST)

About this event

This learning circle is based on the Mastermind Concept. During this six-session virtual mastermind, you will experience the influence your environment has on your success by surrounding yourself with a group of like-minded, growth-oriented successful women in leadership. 

The Mastermind Group is a process made famous in the 1930s by author Napoleon Hill who spent 20 years interviewing and meeting 25,000 people to discuss the principles of success, achievement, and personal growth. Five hundred of those people were the most recognized leaders, innovators, and creators of their time, names like Rockefeller, Edison, and Ford. Hill identified 13 principles to the secret of achievement, and one of those was the mastermind. A group of intentional, like-minded people all come with a common purpose to themselves and each other. The common purpose to themselves is whatever their life purpose, vision, and goals are. The common purpose to each other is to add value, lift each other up, and contribute. In fact, the meetings' success is determined not by what the members get but by what the members contribute.
