Power of a Peer Group

On Monday, a group of five other coaches and I closed out a 5-month MasterMind group.

Here’s what I learned:

No need to reinvent the wheel. From technology platforms to content development, we shared ideas, suggestions and lessons learned. It is a good reminder that there’s no need to reinvent the wheel when you can learn from someone else’s experience (and mistakes).

Stay true to yourself. Just because someone else is doing something—and you know you can do that thing too—doesn’t mean it’s the right path for you. Rather than taking action toward that shiny idea someone else is pursuing, pause and reflect to decide if it aligns with your values and goals.

The importance of connection and community. We started as a group with loose ties and we left as a community of friends and a network of advisors.

This is the power of a peer group—you’re both a teacher and a student.
