Are HUDDLE Sessions Like Masterminds?

In a Mastermind, a small group of business leaders commit to build their businesses, collaborate on their challenges, learn from each other and hold each other accountable. I am currently in a Mastermind group and have been in others in the past. I am a VERY passionate Mastermind supporter. My business would not be where it is today without the insights, support and perspective I receive from my Mastermind partners. Makes me shudder to think where I’d be without them!
Are HUDDLE Sessions a Mastermind group? No. In a Mastermind, the partners make a commitment, usually at least for one year, often for several years, to meet in-person on a regularly scheduled basis. My Mastermind meets in person every two weeks for two hours of structured activity. In the past, we also included weekly Accountability Phone Calls to keep us on track.
Each HUDDLE is only a two-hour commitment of time and, like Masterminds, the time is structured. And as with Masterminds, the Huddlers are expected to be attentive, candid and receptive to feedback. When you sit in a HUDDLE Session video conference, it’s likely you have never met the other participants. A wealth of wisdom is exchanged and everyone goes home with her own bundle of inspiration.
Unlike a Mastermind there is no long-term commitment.
Here’s a quick comparison:
If you are considering starting or joining a Mastermind group, I heartily give you a big green light. You can participate in a Mastermind and a HUDDLE Session and get enormous value from both.
