The MasterMind
“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force,which may be likened to a third mind.” 
Napoleon Hill

The average group works best with two to eight members, no morethan 12—time is the constraint.Meet regularly, weekly if possible. Meet in a nice, preferably inspirationalplace if possible. Make sure it’s a well-lit restaurant, office, home, library,or church, etc. Have a preplanned agenda.If you are in different cities, the meeting can be conducted on aconference call. Make certain you engage an excellent conference callcompany (setting up a series of 3-way calls does not work well.) Youmight save a few pennies but miss a million dollar opportunity throughdistractions.Start the meetings by reading the MasterMind principles. This ispossibly one of the most important points of a call. Every member ofthe group should read aloud all 7 Principles and the Dedication andCovenant.Each member should be supported visually, verbally and emotionallyby the others. For example: someone wants a new home. Othermembers might say, “I see you driving up to your glorious new home. Isee you sunning yourself at poolside with your loved ones, friends andme.” The principle is that we can believe for others what they cannotfully believe for themselves. These are not idle words. You must createand project to the MasterMind a clear vision that the words represent.Your MasterMind call should run like a “Swiss watch.” Ensure the callis timely. If you have committed to a 60 minute call, keep it within thattime frame. MasterMind members are generally extremely busy ... timeis important—use it wisely. Each group should elect a MasterMind leaderto keep everything flowing freely. The leadership position can rotatefrom one member to another. The group leader should be prepared totime each person’s participation in the call to ensure it is kept on track.Have a watch (with a second hand) or stop watch available. This pointis extremely important (do not treat it lightly).

Roll Call—The group leader would take a roll call and would assigneach person a number (i.e. if there are 6 people on the call, eachperson would have a number from 1-6). This numbering system canbe used to designate who speaks when and should be rotated witheach call to ensure the #1 person doesn’t always speak first.Good News—Starting with whichever number is designated for thatparticular call, each person would be allowed 2 minutes to speak aboutsomething very positive. They will share their “win for the week.” Thiswill help in creating the right vibration to get the call started in a positivedirection.Wants and Needs—Again, starting with whichever number has beendesignated to begin first, each person would have 10 minutes (thegroup would decide on the length of time) in which to state their wantsand needs and receive their responses. It might sound like, “This isJohn. This is what I want and this is what I need.” Or, “This is John.This is a challenge I’m facing and I would appreciate the help of myMasterMind group.” It’s important that everyone understands that thedesignated amount of time allotted is both to state their want/needand to receive the group’s response. Therefore, if 4 minutes has beendesignated to each person and someone is not prepared for the calland it takes them 3 1/2 minutes to state what they need, it allows thegroup only a 1/2 minute to respond. Each MasterMind member needsto be prepared for the call—to ensure maximum benefit. At the end ofthe 4 minutes, it would be the team leader’s responsibility to say, “Timeis up.” The discussion would then come to a halt. The second personwould be asked to begin.Depending on the “chosen” length of your call, you may decide toleave room for a “free for all” at the end, at which time anyone andeveryone would have a chance to speak.
