From the Desk of Todd Uterstaedt

Dear Founder CEO,

“The Master Mind principle: When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in Harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance, becomes available to every individual brain in the group.”

—Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill

I not only believe this, I have experienced it? Have you?

  • Do you want to scale your company, faster?
  • Do you want to find more productive ways to lead your company to sustained success?
  • Do you want to find answers to delegation, prioritization, hiring, communication, team building, visioning, relationships with investors, and all the unique issues that are distinctively challenging to Founder CEOs like you?
  • Or maybe, you just want to be part of a supportive community that understands how lonely it can be when shifting from Founder to CEO…

…then this is THE mastermind group for you.

My name is Todd Uterstaedt and I want to make being a Founder & CEO easier, more productive, more successful, more fun, and stress free…for you. You matter to me.

You would be joining a long line of successful Founder & CEOs who accelerated their success by joining and actively participating in a dynamic Mastermind. Even Henry Ford was in a Mastermind.

Why? Simply put:

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

“When Todd brings a group of CEOs together, there is magic in the air where problems get solved. He has an uncanny ability to ensure everyone is engaged and excited about learning from each other. But, most importantly, he ensures every meeting results in huge practical takeaways that we, as CEOs, can immediately put into action. While challenging your thought process, he expertly combines his direct communication style with a genuine caring for the success of everyone in the Mastermind group. He even takes this attention to your success outside of the Mastermind events by meeting with Mastermind members one-on-one to help us build, scale, and lead more effectively. Another of his gifts is his passion for connecting us to the resources and people that can help us get results more quickly. When Todd facilitates your Mastermind group, you get the results, energy, and expertise of a an expert who's always in your corner.”

“I make it an absolute priority to attend the mastermind meeting he facilitates! Todd brings his extensive leadership experience in myriad environments to bear, along with tremendous enthusiasm and high EQ, when he facilitates a mastermind of like-minded CEOs. Todd quickly builds trust and spots key issues and potential discussion impediments/roadblocks to foster "crucial", not superficial conversations that consistently deliver value and immediately applicable and value-add solutions to all attendees. He is an exceptional team-builder who encourages attendees to collaborate and share practical advice and "lessons learned" to ultimately solve other attendees' most intractable business challenges. His advice and insight is not "white tower' or purely theoretical. Rather, it is built upon decades of real-time leadership experience in working with and advising the military, for-profit and non-profit corporations, and startup companies. As he has with our mastermind group, Todd will quickly prove to be an invaluable resource and trusted business advisor in strategically partnering with you to build, scale, and lead your company to sustainable and profitable growth and success.”

"I have been a member of the Cincinnati Regional Chamber's CEO Roundtable #12 for over 15 years. During this time, I have had the opportunity to experience many different facilitators. Todd is the most professional , engaging, and intelligent facilitator I have had the pleasure to experience. He comes prepared, keeps the group on task, and helps you get the most from the time spent."

“The single biggest benefit to your membership in a CEO Mastermind is the fresh source of unfiltered advice, guidance, support, and ideas from other CEOs who can relate to the weight of responsibilities you have. I have been a member of a Mastermind for a number of years. It has been invaluable to me. But, Masterminds are often only as good as the person who facilitates them. And, Todd stands out as one of the best. He knows when to push and he knows when to encourage. He’s artful about drawing out quiet members and skillful at channeling the energy of more outspoken people. But, what really sets him apart is he truly cares about you as a person.  His total dedication to your success, happiness, and fulfillment as a CEO is rare in today’s business world.  Whether its guest speakers, rare resources, late night phone calls, impromptu Skype, Google Hangout or conversations over coffee, you know he won’t rest until you get the help you need to move yourself and your company to the next level.”
