Masterminding & The Importance of Confidentiality

The Importance of Confidentiality

Building trust takes time. In business, often longer. Understanding the importance of confidentiality is vital.
Many business owners struggle not having someone they can talk with in confidence. We need to be able to discuss the important things knowing that we are in a safe space. Pour confidants need to be people who are on a similar wavelength. They need to understand the challenges within business.

All Jennie Gorman’s Business MasterMind Groups have a ‘Confidentially Agreement’ built into the formula. This aspect for all groups is essential.

Ethical duty of confidentiality.


This arises under one of the ethical and conduct frameworks, eg codes of conduct, codes of ethics, guidelines or by virtue of membership of a particular profession or professional association.  The consequences for breach of confidentiality is in the guidelines.

We live in a world with a global community, as a result of the internet.

If we do something wrong the word gets out fast, and for a small business owner, this is not good. People talk, and to have a reputation destroyed more often not is unfixable! People have long memories.

We have all seen what happens when people talk about a new product, a new theory or a new way of doing business. Information or news travels fast.

Protect yourself, your intellectual property (IP) and your business information (financial etc.). Being protective often makes it harder to find that ‘right’ someone. We all need people who understand our business. These people become our sounding board and are vital to help us move forward.

This is where a Business MasterMind Group can change your business with a confidential board of directors.

All group members are hand-picked for the best outcome for a group. Once a group starts the doors no new members can come into the group! This is important to keep everyone on the same page for support and knowledge. It also keeps the same energetics, which is important as well.

If someone is unable to attend for some reason, they can Skype/Zoom in to the group. No recordings are made as a result of the confidentiality clause.

On any given day people can change. I know that if a participant has a challenge at home it will affect their business and vice versa. Dependent on what is happening in our lives will show in how one operates in a group. If someone is having an off day, for whatever reason, it will reflect in how they react and communicate. It is necessary for a facilitator to be able to ‘read’ and understand the person for the best outcome for the group.

I have found that the best mastermind outcomes is in regular meetings, in a confidential space. I know from experience too that the number of people in the room as well as the ‘thinking profiles’ present are what makes the Jennie Gorman style of Business MasterMind Groups different.
