The Kole Performance Group offers a wide variety of Mastermind programs, utilizing John Maxwell’s leadership & Zig Ziglar’s Personal Development programs. Every group will be a group of between 7 and 12, running 6-10 weeks depending on the content. 

Mike Kole will facilitate each of these sessions. As a Certified Trainer and Professor of Leadership and Management, he is equipped with a unique combination of education and practical experience.

New Groups are forming all the time. Check out our Events Page for future dates.

We also facilitate virtual groups, for those of you that are outside the Detroit area!

There are dozens of reasons why you would consider a Mastermind Group. Here are just a few:

  • Form deep lasting relationships with like-minded business men and women
  • Receive valuable input from other businesses that have either gone through a similar issue, or have a different perspective
  • Create a level of accountability that you have never experienced before
  • Limit the loneliness of being a business owner &entrepreneur
  • Work ON your business instead of IN your business

Team Building


Building a team, means improving the communication within that team. The Kole Performance Group has multiple programs that focus on improving communication. Certified by the John Maxwell & Ziglar Organizations, we are equipped to bring you enjoyable and effective programs.

One key program used from small groups, is referred to as the Leadership Game. It is both a game and an assessment of your team. They open up the communication lines, and inside of 2-hours, you will have a more cohesive team with a professional assessment of their strengths and weaknesses.
