Alexis Dean: Why CEOs Are Dumping Their Own Masterminds

If you’ve started to resent the program you have created and are worried you are outgrowing your audience or questioning it, in this episode, Alexis and I discuss how it could just be down to a lack of awareness and intentionally about how you put the mastermind together and how you show up inside of it.

Join us as we dive into the topic of masterminds with our guest, Alexis Dean, founder of The Dovetail Community of Women Entrepreneurs. Alexis shares her experience and insights on why successful women are closing down their masterminds and how you can avoid falling into the same trap.

Alexis shares her tips on removing yourself as the focus of the mastermind and becoming the steward of the community instead of the coach. We also discuss the importance of adjusting the power dynamic, separating the mastermind from being a space where everyone looks at you to lead, and creating a two-way street where you can receive and give. Plus, we touch on the importance of psychological safety in a mastermind and how it takes time to receive so that you don’t disrupt the balance in the community.

But that’s not all! We explore the impact of building a team from a following of people who aspire to be the CEO rather than hiring individuals who want to grow the company.

So, if you want to learn how to create a successful and thriving mastermind community instead of running from it and closing it down, don’t miss this episode!
