The MASTERMIND Journey

GO BEYOND THE BASICS!

Mastermind groups are common across many industries, and leverage the power of facilitated questions, micro-training, and small group dialogue to gain an advanced leadership skillset and mindset that helps navigate complex issues.  This is Career Services MASTERMIND!

INTERACTIONS

  • Amazing Mountain Retreat plus six online events included

  • MASTERMIND is not a conference, it's a 9-month leadership development experience. 

  • Only 36 Participants may register for MASTERMIND per year;  Mastermind is for those who are the leaders of the career center. Any non-top level leaders: Associate Directors, Assistant Director, Coaches and others may attend our ASPIRE Program, geared for those who would like to someday be in the Top Level leader seat. 

  • Participants are placed into a community group (C-Group) with 10 or less colleagues for the duration of the journey.

  • Participants will interact with multiple leading experts inside and outside the field as they dialogue together through the complexities of advanced leadership. 

  • Experience to beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park

LODGING FAQ's

  • Can I get to Estes the night prior or stay an extra night? Yes! The cost is on you, but you can extend your stay. Contact Wendy at wendy@careerleadershipcollective.com to do so. 

  • Can I bring a partner or kids to stay with me. Yes. While they won't see you much during Mastermind and will have to buy their own meal tickets,  the YMCA of the Rockies was recently named  the #1 Family Resort in the Country by USA Today.  There are tons of things for partners and kids to do onsite and in the area.  A good excuse to extend your stay.
