What is a Mastermind Group?

A Mastermind Group is a solution-oriented social learning development opportunity used to share strategies on pressing topics of the day and build community.

What it is...

  • Sharing real-life Berkeley management strategies you can’t find elsewhere 
  • Peer-to-peer learning/social learning 
  • A supportive community of like-minded individuals
  • Networking 

What it is NOT...

  • A venting space
  • Training on related topics 
  • Expertise on policy

While some people may have a lot of knowledge about policies, ultimately individuals should contact the appropriate person connected with a policy for any specific questions (e.g., HR Business Partner on personnel affairs) 

Have an idea for a new MMG?

E-mail us at with the name of the mastermind group you'd like to start, the names and e-mails of 5 interested UCB staff members, and include "New Mastermind Group Idea" in the subject line so we can see if we can accomodate the request.
