44: Mastering the Hotseat: Unlock the Power of Group Problem-Solving | The Professional Creative Podcast with Bonnie Christine

In this episode, I'm diving deep into one of the most powerful aspects of my mastermind intensives – the hotseat. While they might seem intimidating at first, hotseats can become pivotal moments for your business and decision-making process. I'll share my top five tips for conducting a successful hotseat and explain how you can adapt this concept for use in masterminds, peer groups, or even small gatherings of friends or fellow entrepreneurs. By establishing an effective flow for hot seats, you can unlock one of the most impactful ways to receive valuable feedback on your work.

Hot seats are one of the most pivotal moments for people in their business and their decision making, and they have been for me as well.

Discussed in this episode:

  • What is a hot seat and how it works.
  • The value of hot seat sessions and how they can be a game-changer.
  • Tips and tricks for conducting successful hotseat sessions.
  • The importance of recording your hotseat session for future reference.
