One of the greatest benefits has been the reactions I’ve seen from the members in my groups. It is so gratifying to give them this, we need this type of energy.

We are better together – 

inside the mastermind, each person picks a project that they desire to complete within the year. Here are some examples of change the world projects:
  • I am creating an internal employee training and development program called Wood & Huston University. 
  • I am producing a podcast to inspire and support working mothers and grandmothers. 
  • I am securing housing for struggling veterans within my community; no veteran is without a place to stay!
  • I am creating a paperless work environment in the Credit Administration Department, ease of work and freedom of time for all. 
  • To write a book about money/wealth with my friend, Adam Markel.

How will you change the world?


  • Being a part of the mastermind program is about integrating the L.E.A.P principles, Love, Energy, Audacity, and Proof in your life (*remember when we say life – that is an inclusive term, “life” includes your work, relationships, community involvement…all of it). 
  • The program design moves the intention of living these values to action through practical teaching on tactics and strategies shared each month, accountability between cohort members, and clarity of what each means. 

The meeting structure has these elements:

  • Capture The Learnings – turn experience into wisdom.
  • Conquer Fears – mastering the OS!M.
  • L.E.A.P Integrated Teachings – growing together.
  • Share & Serve – changing the world.
  • Extreme Lounge – connecting.
  • A detailed registration process is in place; we ask many questions to know each member, including industry, experience, interests, passions, and even music. 
  • There is an interview matching process.
  • Each chair will have some involvement in the selection process.

All of the above input goes into making the group selection process.

**For in-company programs, the selection process is integrated closely with you.

  • Given the personalized nature of a mastermind, there needs to be an allowance for the most needed value to come from the group.  

    Benefits will vary by each person, and in general, will at least include:

    • Gain relationships that will alter your life.
    • Impact other people with your gifts in a way that alters the course of their lives (for the better).
    • Learn new depths of time-standing life principles and be a better human for it.
    • Be challenged and supported to be your best – as you ask others to do the same and support them in the process.
  • Chairs are selected from within the mastermind program.

  • Once inside, express your interest in becoming a chair.
  • No. This is part of cohesion management.  
  • This process is treated with respect and in the service of all involved.
  • Meeting attendance and participation is an essential part of this program. 
  • Each group sets meeting schedules independently to accommodate the needs of their group. 
  • Each group will have the opportunity to set their own “agreements,” which will outline missed meeting parameters.  
  • To form the “mastermind,” your full presence and engagement are part of the energy. 
  • Monthly meetings are 90-120 minutes; your chair will be encouraged to host an Extreme Lounge period just before and immediately after the meeting.
  • Leadership teaching materials are dripped each month that take on average under an hour to consume.
  • The teachings are integral to living leadership and meant to be practiced throughout the month as part of your regular routines. 
  • You choose your Change Your World Project; you decide how much time and priority goes to that each month.

The network site we have chosen will make it easy to connect with others inside and outside your cohort.  

Absolutely, have them apply on the website here.
