What exactly IS a mastermind?

We’ll let entrepreneur and business strategist extraordinaire Tony Robbins take this definition:

The definition of a mastermind group is straightforward: a group of peers who meet to give each other advice and support. It’s similar to mentoring but has several important differences. First, it will have five or six members, instead of being a one-on-one meeting. In a mastermind group, you will both give and receive advice, while in a mentorship, you’ll typically be on the receiving end.

Mastermind groups can also involve brainstorming, educational presentations and even discussing personal issues. So what is a mastermind group really? It is a “meeting of the minds” in every sense – a place where you can speak the truth and expect it in return.

In 2022, our Masterminds explored two topics: Grassroots and Professional Development, which you can read about below! Stay tuned for what new topics we’ll be exploring in 2023!

Grassroots Mastermind – Turn Your Passion and Values Into Action


Are you passionate about a particular issue or topic but aren’t sure how to set change in motion?  Are you fired up about it and want to get others fired up too?

The AF Grassroots Mastermind focuses on building activism and organizing strategies and skills.

In this mastermind, you’ll select a local or state issue, or an ideological topic (i.e., pushing back against socialism), and determine what kind of activism (civil or political) you will undertake to advocate for that issue. Using what you learn through the mastermind, you will create and execute a grassroots plan to take action and fuel change.




Professional Development Mastermind – Become the CEO of Your WorklifeMasterminds 1

Do you feel stuck in your current role? Do you want to take on more responsibility, but aren’t sure how to prove yourself? Or maybe you just aren’t succeeding in the workplace like you imagined?

AF’s Professional Development Mastermind focuses on building the full suite of skills needed to succeed in your career: strategic planning and thinking; conflict resolution; communication; time, project, and stress management; mapping out career trajectory; networking; and more.

In this mastermind, you will set a professional goal – like “get promoted in the next year” or “move into a management position.” You’ll learn practical hard and soft skills to become more effective in the workplace, and you’ll develop and execute a personal development plan to achieve that goal.
