Rootworks community and core events

Mastermind groups: Level up engagement with your peers and Rootworks experts

Mastermind groups represent a high-value extension of your Rootworks membership. Members apply to join these smaller, intimate groups of like-minded firm owners and key stakeholders to exchange ideas and information, collectively solve common issues and work to achieve set goals around growth and business model improvement.

Groups meet monthly and are led by a dedicated and seasoned Rootworks facilitator. At the core, Mastermind groups offer a structured small-group platform to further fuel firm success while also providing the laser-focused support required to keep participants accountable in setting objectives and goals and implementing change with intention and structured planning.

Hyper-focused engagement on firm business model further fuels firm success!

Is your firm ready for Mastermind groups?

Are you an existing member of Rootworks, and have you been highly engaged for more than a year? Are you looking for facilitator-driven support and wish to meet regularly with like-minded colleagues within a small-group environment? If you’re a ‘yes’ for both, then you’re ready for Mastermind groups.

I get something usable in every Mastermind meeting. Sharing ideas with like-minded peers is invaluable. Why attend a live Mastermind group event? The agenda items are always timely and great starters, but the discussions that happen organically are priceless! Getting to know my peers on a personal level is also gratifying and helps me feel more connected.
