The concept of Mastermind was introduced by Napoleon Hill, in his book Think and Grow Rich (1937):
“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind .” — Napoleon Hill
Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills, and solve problems. A mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success.
Mastermind group members act as catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates and supportive colleagues to each other. By getting the perspective, knowledge, experience, and resources of others in the group, not only can you greatly expand your own limited view of the world, you can also advance your own goals and projects more quickly.
Ricardo facilitates the only mastermind groups in the world focused on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of executive teams. The CET Mastermind is an exclusive tool to transform your company and your executive team by transforming yourself.
- Solutions and ideas that you would not have found by yourself
- Tap into the experience and skills of others, including the Mastermind Facilitator
- Increased commitment to your goals as you openly share them with your peers
- Increased confidence on your decisions and actions
- An instant and valuable network to support your personal and business growth
- A sense of shared mission with other CEOs.
- Design things to be the way you want them to be, not as you’ve been told they “should” be
- A boost to your attitude, resilience and positivity
Who Should Join a Mastermind Group?
C-level executives and board members who:
- Have an interest in improving results of their companies, getting them from good to great or revamp them
- Manage teams that lead organizations, companies and bold projects, special endeavors that require unique strategies to overcome challenges and achieve great results.
- Are responsible for results of entire organizations and lead a team that must produce them
- Are ready to create the best year of their professional lives
- Believe they can benefit from a supportive team of mastermind partners and an experienced facilitator
- Are ready to share and support others, learn and overcome the natural fear of change that happens when we aim for a bold vision
Sometimes you don’t need a full intervention with your team. You might already have a great team and need to fine tune some aspects of its functioning. Ricardo can partner with you to help you diagnose exactly what you need done and design it from scratch adapted to your team’s needs.
Over 25 years he has been facilitating strategic workshops with executive teams on varied topics such as:
- Strategic Visioning
- Strategy roadmaps
- Board meeting facilitation
- Culture alignment
- Customer centricity
- Change Management
- C-Level Leadership
- Effective Strategy Implementation
- Transformational Leadership
- Customized facilitation tailored to your needs
The 6 P’s Intensive
Transform Your Leadership
The transformational program that creates a Chief Executive Team is a deep-dive into The 6P’s of Executive Teams®.
Most approaches to top management teams development are based on generic training and team-building exercises that aim to develop communication between members. Ricardo does not aim for generic improvements of “communication”, “teambuilding” or “inspiration” in management teams.
He knows the difference between generic and tailormade development programs because he developed assessment tools to evaluate these teams and methodologies to support their development. He follows a structured 6-step approach to develop your management teams’ effectiveness, in which consultancy, coaching, training, facilitation and speaking (keep in mind he’s the only triple certified person in the world in all these areas) each play a key role.
What is The 6P’s of Executive Teams® program?
We look at your Executive Team through the 6 dimensions of executive teams that are scientifically validated to improve company performance: Purpose, Processes, People, Problems, Possiblities, and Potential.
The 6P’s Intensive is an on-site multi-day facilitation with the leaders of your organization. During this collaborative and transformative process, your team members will prepare and lead the company on its next breakthrough.
What are the results?
Twenty years of management research have shown that improving The 6P’s of Executive Teams® dimensions results in an improvement of these company outputs:
- Financial: return on assets, return on sales, return on equity, stock performance, profitability, productivity, sales growth, market share, operating result, budget compliance, among others.
- Innovation: Company ambidexterity (exploration & exploitation), Innovation performance, corporate entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial orientation.
- Engagement: middle managers turnover, middle managers job satisfaction, employee turnover, employee commitment, employee negative emotions.
Tailor-made for your team
Every program based on The 6P’s of Executive Teams® is a custom project, designed to meet the needs and challenges of your unique Chief Executive Team. Therefore completing a 360º Assessment is a prerequisite to having a 6P’s Intensive Program, so we can customize it to your Team.
CET Assessment is the main diagnosis tool to feed the development program of your executive team with evidence-based insights. It assesses how well-structured management team is by addressing the 23 dimensions of executive team effectiveness as provided by management research of the last twenty years.
These are singular teams that need unique diagnosis and development methods. That is what we developed over the last 25 years working with C-Suite teams around the world.

Discuss Your Event With Ricardo
“The keynote speech that we hired Ricardo to do clearly exceeded our expectations, both in content and in message adequacy and its impact on participants. Ricardo’s work clearly enriched our annual event and we are confident that in the future we will be working with him again.”
“Ricardo is a notable speaker for many reasons, on the one hand he prepares the subjects very well and treats them with the required seriousness and depth to make it credible and intelligible, on the other hand, he gets close to his audiences, almost like he feels them, adapting the speech and the subject to the most appropriate tone and that actually causes more impact and emotion in the people who are always attentive following him. In our Strategic Management Program the main focus was to work on corporate culture and emphasize the virtues of multicultural teams and strategies to mitigate the difficulties in managing them, calling it “Business Culture and Prejudice”. We had testimonies of colleagues who told us that the speech had transformed them and that they would have avoided many difficulties if they had heard it before.”
“Brilliant! Ricardo has scientific evidence proving the transformational impact for companies of his practical experience and organizational knowledge. The scientific evidence supporting his programs makes them highly credible, top class, and raises the expectations of all clients.”
“When I look at last decade, trying to remember the top 5 speeches, I put Ricardo J. Vargas at #1 with his ‘The Paradoxes of Change.’ Brilliant and very useful. A ‘must repeat’ and update in the actual business & political environment wherever. Thanks Ricardo.”
“From several occasions when Companhia de Seguros Tranquilidade was able to rely on his interventions, mainly in business meetings, Ricardo J. Vargas was always able to convey the right message, at the right time, in the right way. His unusual ability to communicate, knowing how to positively convey that for every constraint there is a way to overcome it, allows us to always reach far beyond the result that we expected.”
