Student Journey

The Journey

To become part of Thought Leaders is to embark on a journey of personal growth and professional development. Unlike a traditional business course with exams and assessments, the Thought Leaders’ way of learning will see you apply principles and methods to grow your own professional practice from day one. 

In this way, it is more akin to studying a martial art. As a beginner, you need to understand the fundamental principles, tactics and methods. Then it is a matter of applying energy, time and discipline to refining and mastering the methodology with the guidance and support of peers and mentors. And like a martial art, it is up to the individual to decide how far they wish to take their development. 

The martial arts analogy is not by chance. Founder Matt Church worked as a martial arts instructor early in his career and has applied some of the principles of progressive mastery to the Thought Leaders’ learning culture. This includes using the system of coloured belts to identify different levels of proficiency and financial success.  

The Curriculum

Your introduction to the principles and methodology of Thought Leaders through a series of live and recorded coaching sessions and exercises. You will begin to apply the ideas and resources to help you develop your Intellectual Property and structure your practice for success. The application of what you learn through The Curriculum will continue throughout your Thought Leaders journey.

  • Students can spend up to 6 months becoming familiar with The Curriculum. 
  • Enrolling in The Curriculum is a prerequisite to progression to The School.

The School

We use ‘school’ not to imply an institution of learning but to describe a group of people who share a common philosophy or method. With the support of your fellow students and a dedicated faculty of experienced and successful Thought Leaders Alumni, you will implement the ideas and methods of The Curriculum as you launch and build your practice. With focus, dedication and accountability, you will start your progression through the Thought Leaders revenue ladder as you grow your practice earnings. 

The Curriculum Book

The Thought Leaders Practice book, or the ‘Green Book’, sets out the tried and tested methodologies that have helped thousands of experts like you share their ideas with the world and be rewarded for doing so. It is a practical how-to guide for capturing, packaging and delivering your ideas. Discover how to establish a practice and position yourself as a respected, sought-after and well-paid subject matter expert.
