A Mastermind has two characteristics:
· Economic. People want to make money and gain advice on how to do that. Napoleon Hill says most of history’s richest men had utilized Masterminds.
· Psychic. When two or more people get together and think about something, they generate an energy which is greater than the sum of its parts. The solution is stronger than what the members could have thought of individually. Napoleon Hill says: “No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” I’ve seen this happen in good staff meetings. Perhaps you have witnessed this too.
