Our Story

Methods was started as a way to make the knowledge of the world’s most influential business thinkers accessible for current and future leaders around the world. Our mission is to share the collective knowledge of the world’s greatest leaders with the world’s most influential people — those current and future leaders, managers, entrepreneurs, and self-starters who can make a positive impact on society — and to make it readily available, affordable, and accessible anywhere, anytime .

We are a multi-year global project that has gathered the world’s foremost leaders, business thinkers, and entrepreneurs and distilled their collective knowledge, experiences, and methods into an interactive web-based learning platform. Each of our leaders brings real-world experience and real-world results to help other driven individuals live and lead effectively.

Methods offers all-access membership to structured interactive course curriculum, custom learning paths, and extensive supplementary learning materials. Each course will unfold uniquely depending on how the user interacts with the course material, creating a tailored learning experience. New courses, tools, and resources are continuously added to enhance the Methods platform.

Methods was born from the vision of Marshall Goldsmith’s 100 Coaches program—a legacy initiative he’s developed that seeks to ‘pay it forward’ by freely sharing his inimitable body of knowledge with a carefully curated pool of the top CEOs, business coaches, and thought leaders in the world. We wanted to take that idea one step further by creating an encompassing platform which holds the combined knowledge of the 100 Coaches program. Through our partnership with the Marshall Goldsmith’s 100 Coaches, we’re bringing exclusive content from the 100 Coaches straight to you in high quality, interactive videos, so that you, too, might pay it forward to the next generation of leaders.

By enrolling in Methods, not only are you choosing to invest in the growth and development of yourself, your organization, and those around you, you are also helping share the collective knowledge of the world’s greatest leaders to those who would otherwise not have access to it. You are a part of the change.

You are already great, there is nothing wrong with you. This is all about finding the next best you over and over and over again.

Pay It Forward

Inspired by the generosity of his personal heroes, Marshall Goldsmith has chosen to freely teach the 100 Coaches and others everything he has learned. This is done with the hope that his students will, likewise, ‘pay it forward’ by sharing their knowledge with others and, in doing so, teach and inspire future leaders and fill the world with people we can all call “heroes.” Methods was born from this vision.
