How Does a Mastermind Work?

BB Mastermind is a 6-month-long, invitation-only leadership laboratory. Select participants join an exclusive group of successful executives whose sole aim is to lift their leadership game and help their peers do the same. It is a forum for fearless experimentation and an incubator of fresh approaches and ideas!

Members engage in powerful strategic conversations with their colleagues. They have access to a private, online Mastermind community dedicated to the exchange of tested leadership wisdom, cutting-edge neuro-science research, and instant problem-solving. They give and receive a level of support that leaders seldom have access to in our rushed, highly competitive, and over-committed lives. And they hold themselves and their peers accountable for being their absolute Brilliant Best.

Work with Achim Nowak in Beautiful South Florida

Do you wish you could spend a full-immersion day with a Master Executive Coach where the sole focus is on YOU? On honing your executive presence. Boosting your ability to build influence. Clarifying your response to organizational storms. Embodying your credo as a leader. Creating tangible and tactical transformations.

That is the gift of BRILLIANT BEST GOLD.

Spend a day of ONE-on-ONE time with Achim Nowak in South Florida. Grab a meal together. Dream BIG. Enjoy eight hours in the studio, without interruption, where you receive Achim’s undivided attention and have his exceptional expertise at your fingertips.

Get clear, deep down, about why it is that you do what you do. And what would happen if you did more of it, with fully embodied skills and ease, every single day. That IS the source of your Brilliant Best Leadership – and sometimes we need to deep-dive with a Master Coach to tap the source.


So you want to take your team on a soaring and transformational off-site retreat? One that illumines every member’s sense of self and social engagement instincts in fresh and unexpected ways? A retreat that instantly shifts your team into a more impactful way of doing business?

AND you want this to be the hands-down most memorable team experience any of you have EVER had?

Welcome to BRILLIANT BEST EQUUS.  This is not your run-of-the-mill ropes course or let’s-cook-a-meal or make-music-together teambuilding event. In partnership with Dr. Giselle Faubel, a Harvard-trained psychologist and pioneer in the field of equine-assisted personal development, you and Achim Nowak spend either a day or two at Dr. Faubel’s pristine horse ranch in Western Broward County, home to 10 horses and Dr. Faubel’s Equulibrium organization. While the ranch is situated in a pastoral area of South Florida, it is easily accessed in less than 30 minutes from either the Miami or Ft. Lauderdale airports.
