I developed the “Dunetz-Mastermind” model over the past 9 years based on my management, business and life experience, at times leveraging “trial and error”, bringing to it all I have gathered and learned over time. The Dunetz-Mastermind approach has been proven in hundreds of hours of group work with CEOs, senior managers, business owners and professionals, in a great variety of settings. It is an out-of-the-box, facilitated approach which can be part of a regular once a month meeting of a defined group (one of my groups has been meeting now for over 7 years in a row!), a workshop session, an “off-site”, a “kick-off”, a “team-builder”, among others…
Dunetz-Mastermind Benefits: immediate, practical, authentic, inspiring
- Feedback: where else do 4—8- 10 or more people think together with you and for you to gain clarity and commitment?
- Decision-making: when you are back and forth on things, what better way than to have a supportive think-tank listening ,questioning and moving you forward?
- Support: sometimes you don’t need to “do” anything, the very sharing and discussing of the issue has a mind and power of its own- try it and you shall see!
- Innovative and creative: the freedom to think out-of-the box, together with others and not alone, to find that “new idea” you are looking for…
- Accountability: the group mastermind is not only a “thinking model” but a “doing model”….a mechanism where plans are generated as well as action items.
- Resources: nearly every Dunetz-Mastermind session will generate new networking contacts, information access, resources to drive success forward.
- Collaborative communication: poor communication is a frequent cause of problems and conflict within teams and organizations. Dunetz-Mastermind creates a positive collaborative environment and climate.
- Management development: managers who grow together and share know-how, tips and support become better managers, managers “grow each other”!
- Build relationships: a frequent comment in a Dunetz-Mastermind session- “I never knew that was what you thought…”, even if you have known this person for 20 years! Authentic conversation leads to authentic relationship.
- Personal confidence: man was not made to live alone. All the more so in organizations where there is the “assumption” that people are working together…Dunetz-Mastermind sessions leave you with a “can do” and “will do” overall feeling.
