What the heck is Smácht?

Smácht is a leadership development programme that helps you clarify your vision, commit to a plan, and holds you accountable for achieving that plan.

On February 5th 2010, Pádraic facilitated a meeting of some highly stressed business owners. They’d been decimated by the impact of the recession and were feeling lost, frightened and desperate.

As far as Pádraic was concerned there was nothing particularly awesome about the meeting. He had each member clarify their precise current reality. He also had them identify what they could do about their position. And critically, he had them agree what they would do.

At the conclusion of the meeting he asked them what was the one quality they needed most to survive the recession. ‘Discipline’ was the reply given by moist. But they felt it was a negative word and asked Pádraic what the Irish word for discipline was.

When he said ‘Smácht” (pronounced smact), little did he realise that a new business was born. Over the following three years, Smácht would help over 500 business owners survive and thrive through the recession.

Smácht is 4 things. It’s the Irish word for discipline. It is also an attitude of mind that says discipline is the bridge between aspiration and accomplishment. It I also a tried and tested methodology to grow your business. And finally, it is a community of like-minded people.

What’s a mastermind?

It’s likely that masterminds have existed since stone-age hunters debated in their caves as to how best to protect themselves and hunt for food.

The term was popularised by Napoleon Hill in his classic book ‘Think and Grow Rich’. He discovered that a key success factor common to the great achievers of his time was that they were all part of a mastermind group.

Hill concluded that apart from the economic benefits of sharing ideas and contacts there was also an additional psychic benefit of masterminding. ‘No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.’

The picture on the left is of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John Burroughs and Harvey Firestone – four of the greatest innovators of all time. The four were part of a mastermind group called ‘The Vagabonds’ and met on a regular basis, formally and informally, to learn and to grow and to innovate.
