What Is a Mastermind Alliance?

A mastermind alliance consists of two or more minds working actively together in perfect harmony toward a common definite objective.  

Through a mastermind alliance you can appropriate and use the full strength of the experience, training, and knowledge of others just as if they were your own.

The Inklings

The Inklings was an informal literary discussion group associated with the University of Oxford, England, for nearly two decades between the early 1930s and late 1949. The Inklings were literary enthusiasts who praised the value of narrative in fiction and encouraged the writing of fantasy.

You Might Recognize a few of the Members: J.R.R Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield

Legacy: Two classic series of literature, The Chronicles of Narnia and The  Lord of the Rings were honed and improved by This Mastermind in Oxford, England.

The meetings in Lewis’ rooms lasted from 1933 to 1949, concluding as Tolkien finished the Lord of the Rings. The more informal pub meetings continued until Lewis’ death in 1963. [Iron Sharpens Iron: The Power of Master Mind Groups]

The Vagabonds

Starting in 1915, Edison, Firestone, and Ford, along with the naturalist Thomas Burroughs before his death in 1921, and a rotating cadre of guest members like Burbank and President Calvin Coolidge, took to the road each summer in motor camping caravans, road tripping from state to state on their way to rustic campsites. These eminent men and best friends called themselves “The Vagabonds” and eagerly looked forward to their “gypsy” trips together each year. The men spent their camping trips competing in impromptu tree chopping and climbing contests, allowing what Edison called “Nature’s Laboratory” to inspire them to new ideas, and sitting around the campfire discussing their various scientific and business ventures and debating the pressing issues of the day. The yearly trips lasted until 1924 when several factors led to their demise: Harding died, newspaper reporters and photographers swarmed the campsites, and the men’s wives started coming along, bringing with them their maids and chauffeurs. Nonetheless, the men continued to meet together, often gathering in the man room at Henry Ford’s Fair Lane estate, a den where carved oak busts of Edison, Burroughs, and Firestone hung on the wood paneled walls.

The Junto

In 1727, Benjamin Franklin formed the Junto, a mutual improvement society born of Franklin’s love of conversation, personal progress, philosophy, and civic involvement. The group originally had 12 members and was composed of workingmen–the tradesmen and artisans who did not have a place in more elite circles of society. The Junto was thus commonly referred to as the “Leather Apron Club.” [Iron Sharpens Iron: The Power of Master Mind Groups]

9 Old Men

Walt Disney: Walt’s Nine Old Men were a core group of supervising animators who created Walt Disney Studios’ most famous work – such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and The Rescuers. Walt jokingly called them his “Nine Old Men” (even though most of them were in their 20s when they first started at the studio) [Walt’s Nine Old Men]


Legacy: Disney Animation. All The Great And Classic Disney Toons were created By The 9 Old men

How to Start and Run a True Mastermind Alliance

Masterminds can be as small as two people to 12, Some yearly masterminds will have More, However for the purpose of a Highly effective and intensive mastermind 3 to 8 seems to be the sweet spot.

Your Mastermind alliance Should Meet 2 to 4 times a month.
Each member should be Committed to attend each session.

There should be a penalty for members that don’t show up to a meeting. For instance, The member would need to donate $25 to a charity of their choice Or Something Else Like 100 Squats, You decide 🙂

Non Disclosure; Masterminds Must be confidential, each member must agree to keep the discussions to themselves.

Easy Out agreement. After 90 days a Member can choose to leave the mastermind with no hard feelings

Decide What the Mastermind alliance Focus will be. Mission, Goal, Business, Topic based.

Create a Mission Statement and set up core values for the meetings.

Members Should be Non Competing. For instance, Members Of the Same company Or Non competing members across a particular field.

Victory is much more meaningful when it comes not just from one person, but from the joint achievements of many.
Howard Schultz

You will Need Some Ground Rules

Here’s A Some Suggestions From  Live Your Legend

How are unimportant decisions made? By a leader or a vote?  

Establish that your group is not group therapy, and whining, complaining, or gossiping will not be tolerated.  

Specify if this is a free mastermind or a paid mastermind. It’s argued that paid mastermind groups get more commitment from their members since they have higher stakes in attending.

What are the consequences for missing a meeting or being late?  Define the terms and process in which a member is dismissed, and how you’re going to go about introducing new members to your group once it’s fully established.  How personal are members allowed to get?

How confidential is your mastermind? Is everything sacred? Do you need to create an non-disclosure agreement?  

What’s your policy for competition (both in business and in trying to one-up each other every meeting)?  

Ask for a commitment to honesty, integrity, trust, and respect for all members.  

Ask members to be self-aware and to not try to dominate the conversation or give orders.  Leave your ego at the door.

Meeting Structure

[I Love This one from Life Hack]

What Are You Working On? Nice and broad, and each member can answer with whatever they feel comfortable sharing.

What Did You Learn? Very often my groups are focused on similar goals, and lessons learnt by one member benefit all of us.

What Do You Need Help With? By having a specific question on the agenda, this helps take pressure of members who want to reach out to the group for help.

These Two are From Live Your Legend


~ Professional updates (all members)

~ Hot seat session with one member (planned in advance)

~ Planning of weekly group activity

~ Everyone state’s goals for coming week

2.Welcome & state mission
