2019 Mastermind Membership Cohort 5 Dashboard

Cohort 5: Mastermind Dashboard

Think of the dashboard as your home base as well as “library” for all digital files related to the Mastermind experience. The dashboard will also house session audio files and notes. The dashboard is not interactive, therefore, if you have questions, want to share a resource, or are looking for “tribe” support, please use our FaceBook group.

Actions Steps (TB shared by members)

  • Jodi: I am hoping to finish up looking over my notes from all of the sessions and readings. Specifically I have a few more things from Quiet that I would like to look at. Then I will journal. I have gotten away from journaling, so I am excited just to write for a bit this evening.
  • Daina: My action step will be to review my notes, continue to focus on what I can do and control, ask for what I want/need, not let the fear of not being enough keep me from focusing on the work that I feel is important, and stop apologizing.

  1. Develop your “Scaffolding for Success Pledge” and post to FB at any time. It can also be part of your “talk story”. What you post should be the actual pledge, which can be a picture or just text. When you post, let me know if I have your permission (with or without your name) to share with other Mastermind cohorts and Jonathan Fields. It can be shared without your name.
  2. Prepare your “talk story”, which is designed to depict your journey to date. Be sure to think about your emotional intelligence, what it means to you to be a leader, and where you see your ideal self in 10 years from now.

What you'll need and/or things mentioned in the video:

  • Guidebook (page 8 and 18-20)
  • Jonathan's podcast [link] shorter print only version [link]
  • 20-30 minutes (minimum) to prepare your pledge and talk story
  • One example (scroll to bottom of this page for Hattie's Talk Story)
  • Gretchen Ruben's four tendencies [link]
