NAESP Mastermind Groups

Program Overview

A Mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoring group used to help members solve their problems through input and advice from the other group participants. NAESP Mastermind will offer a combination of brainstorming, peer accountability, and support in a group setting to sharpen educational leadership and personal skills. In pursuit of success, members will challenge each other to set strong goals and, more importantly, to accomplish them.

Andrea Thompson, an NAESP trained Mastermind facilitator, will lead the cohorts. An expert in the field, she will help the group to dive deeply into discussions and work with members to create success—as each member defines it. Mastermind groups are fluid and relevant to what is happening in your school. To guide the discussion, we will use focus areas from the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL)
