welcome to the emerging leaders mastermind group

What is an Emerging Leaders Mastermind Group?


This is for emerging leaders and those new into leadership, who are looking for an alternative to the traditional leadership development models and want a safe space in which they can expand their network, continue to be coached and travel deeper into their leadership journey.

A unique part of this mastermind group is for leaders to bring challenges to the group and receive high quality advice and coaching from fellow leaders - this is known as ‘hot seating’.


There are three key elements to the nine month programme: 2 hour monthly group Zoom calls delivering relevant leadership development focus; a DiSC psychometric profile with a 1:1 coaching session; and ‘hot seating’ in each session where you bring challenges to the group to gain advice from your peers.

“The making of a leader is a big issue.”
― Benjamin Suulola

This is a unique programme; a select group of leaders, bound together by a common purpose and motivation to broaden their leadership capacity. The elements that make up the programme are unique in the world of leadership development and have dramatic impact. Using group and individual accountability, along with core topics based on key leadership competencies, leadership psychology, support, insight and mindset mastery.

What is 'hot seating'?

Hot seating is based on the principle of using action learning sets, and is a very powerful tool to use within groups. The set works by having one person at a time share a challenge they’re facing and then having the rest of the group ask questions which tease out the issue, create learning and explore specific actions that the individual can commit to and report back on. There is also an opportunity for other members of the group to share their wisdom on the challenge.
