Mastermind Agreement

  • A Mastermind is a group of like-minded individuals organized to support each other’s professional goals. Specific benefits include camaraderie, fresh ideas and accountability. Some simple guidelines. . .

    • Structure. Each gathering will include a coaching segment (5 to 15 min usually) and a support segment. Please bring me a copy of your completed Mastermind Prep Form. This form allows you to review your actions, identify the areas you want help with and bring focus to your future intentions. Business and personal subjects are welcome.
    • Content. If it is your turn, feel free to use the time as you feel best. I suggest using the group to help you solve problems and keep moving forward. If you are a responder, please address the question being asked with ideas, suggestions and personal experiences that directly relate to the subject at hand. I will divide up our support segment equally so each participant gets the same amount of time. Understand there will always be an organic flow as we are share together, so comments and insertions will be made as deemed appropriate. The overriding intention is the betterment of the group.
    • Words. It is very important that our words are gentle and thoughtful. If you have a suggestion for someone, please consider them carefully. The wrong ones can be destructive and completely contrary to your intention. So let’s do our best to speak life, encouragement and possibility!
    • Absence. Please do my best to be on time and stay the whole time. The group isn’t the same without you! If you will be late or absent, please text or call asap: 626-733-1667 or email: Lori@LORiKOOP.com.
    • Confidentiality. Members of our group are confidential. Please do not disclose names and specific discussions with others not in our group. It is my intention to create a safe place for you to be entirely open.
    • Payment. Payment is due the first meeting of the month. I accept payment in cash, check or major credit card. Make checks payable to: Lori Koop. If you are absent, an invoice will be emailed.
    • Between meetings. Feel free to ask questions, offer suggestions and communicate with each other between sessions, if you’d like. We could do group emails or set up a private group. It feels good to support and be supported. That’s the beauty of this group.
    • Termination. Your attendance and participation is what makes this group great! Ideally you can commit to a year. But I understand things come up. Technically, either party can terminate this relationship at any time. Prepaid fees are nonrefundable.
    • Taxes. At year-end, a cumulative receipt for the year will be emailed out for tax purposes. Deduct as appropriate.
    • Intention. Coaching is meant to uplift, challenge and support. It is not psychotherapy. Nor is a coach a psychotherapist. Tools, comments and ideas are offered solely for the purpose of reaching goals. You remain responsible for any and all choices and decisions, and for personal wellbeing during, after and between meetings.
    • Your signature on this agreement indicates full understanding of, and agreement to, the information as detailed above.
