In 2016 we began bringing together a small group of executives who are striving to solve organizational challenges within large enterprise companies. The Mastermind is an invite-only group which includes leaders from Google, PepsiCo, McDonalds Corporation, Facebook, CHANEL, AirBNB and other companies that are in the midst of cultural change initiatives.
Over the last year, we have heard stories from the Head of People at Chanel about building people functions within a 100 year old company, from the Head of Org Design at McDonalds about running a global franchise initiative, and from the CMO of PepsiCo about how to instigate a global workforce.
Now, after 12 monthly Responsive Mastermind video meetings, we are thrilled to be hosting the first Responsive Mastermind retreat. This will be an opportunity for some of the most forward-thinking individuals within large enterprise companies to gather together for a day and look in-depth at each organization. We will provide a confidential forum where these leaders can gather, share stories and tactics, and reinforce the community that we have begun to build through our monthly meetings.
What Will We Do?
A Letter from Robin Zander
It has been a joy to host the Responsive Mastermind and learn from all of you over the last year, as well as learn alongside the entire Responsive Org community since 2015.
I run the Responsive Conference and continue to manage the Responsive Org global network because I am passionate about the power of community to accomplish more than any single individual can by themselves. Bringing this very sophisticated and experienced group together has provided a unique and compelling perspective on the Future of Work.
All of you are in the midst of your own Responsive endeavors, and I’ve been so grateful for your participation in this group (free from consultants), where everyone is encouraged to show up authentically and to share, in confidence, their struggles and achievements. Whether you have just joined the Mastermind or have been an active participant since the beginning, thank you for sharing your learnings with us!
We’re beginning to explore alternative formats for the monthly Mastermind and are dedicating more time to working with each presenter to bring specific challenges to the table. One year in, I feel like we are just getting started and can’t wait to continue building the Responsive Mastermind with each of you.
The Responsive Mastermind has always been free, and I intend to keep it so. Simultaneously, my team and I invest more than a dozen hours each month to coordinate and facilitate the monthly meet-ups. It would mean the world to me if you would consider attending this first 1-day Responsive Mastermind, especially as it will defray expenses occurred running the Mastermind throughout the year.
If you have ever received value out of the Mastermind, please join us!
