On the back of our recent US adventure we’re launching a long distance stream of Thought Leaders Business School.
This is in response to requests (bordering on demands) from a number of amazing thought leaders to create an alternative to our traditional program which would overcome the tyranny of distance, providing a similarly wonderful experience and the same amazing results.
It has all of the elements of our traditional program, plus a couple of extras that we’re very excited about.
The distance program will commence with the same onboarding process, the same flipped classroom methodology and online curriculum that our students in Australia complete.
One immersion in Australia
You need to come to Australia to attend your first three-day immersion (see dates and cities). This is an invaluable experience, and will ensure that you not only start your year flying but hit the ground running. You are most welcome to drop in on later immersions if you happen to be in the neighbourhood.
Four virtual immersions
We’re still designing this, and we’ve already engaged a leading authority in virtual learning and put our IT and production team on the job. The brief is to come up with a facilitated online experience that is:
- The best of its kind in the world
- Facilitates thought leaders doing the same work as they would if they were in the room
- Creates a connection for students in the distance program with each other, faculty, and students in the live program. In other words the experience is awesome.
Without wanting to pre-empt what the team comes up with, we’re envisaging a combination of streaming / recording presentations from the live event and a one-day facilitated work day where all the work gets done.
Support & Accountability
You'll get all the coaching, mentoring, support as if you were in the live program. Equally you'll need to produce the same deliverables and subject yourself to the same accountability framework as if you were in Australia.
Monthly facilitated meet ups will bring all the distance students together with a member of faculty, so they can get any support needed and stay connected to the tribe.
Part of our intent for this program is that some of our distance students meet the requirements for becoming a Thought Leaders Mentor (all the deliverables of the program, blue belt in their practice and a cultural fit with our tribe) and go on to teach our methodology in different parts of the world.
