Hey leaders, we’re so glad you’re here! It tells us that you’re ready to commit to becoming a value driven, respected, no bullsh!t leader.
You’ve probably already worked out that leadership isn't easy, but it’s a skill that you can develop over time. Although it can be tough, the feeling that comes from leading a team to success is unbelievably rewarding.
If you can get your head around your leadership blind spots and commit to working on those, you’ll be able to push through the barriers that stop most people.
You’ll find that you will be able to achieve the long-term career success and personal satisfaction that many people NEVER get to experience.
Leadership Beyond the Theory was created for any leader who has been on their leadership journey for long enough to work out that it’s not as easy as it looks. It’s for the leaders who want to lead with confidence and strength, and follow a proven roadmap to success.
If you’re not currently satisfied with your impact as a leader, it’s time to commit.
In our comprehensive 8-week program, you’ll learn from Martin G. Moore, a CEO who has been where you are, and has the scars to show for 33+ years in the leadership trenches.
Welcome to Leadership Beyond the Theory.
Are you ready to become a no bullsh!t leader?
This program is right for you if you want to:
This program is right for you if you want to:
This program is the missing piece of the puzzle you need to become a better leader. My mindset about leadership has completely changed and now I feel ready to face any difficult conversation or complex decision with confidence.
Why? Because at the time, I didn't really understand how to connect with people to get the best out of them.
I handled some of the early conversations so poorly that I'm embarrassed to think about them now! But, I had a ‘lightbulb moment’ after one of these conversations that completely shifted my perspective.
From that point forward, I deliberately went about changing and learning, dedicating myself to doing the things that would truly make a difference to the people I led.
I willingly threw myself into situations that most leaders avoid - and I was all the better for it!
I want to help you TO BECOME aware of your leadership blind spots so you don’t make the same mistakes I did!
I've distilled all of the leadership skill, wisdom, and experience that I gained over 30+ years going from university dropout to the CEO of a multi-billion dollar business, and created
The No Bullsh!t Leadership Framework.
Leadership Beyond the Theory turns that framework into an 8-week online program that delivers an integrated leadership system, giving you access to the practical tools and techniques that you need to improve your leadership skills, fast!
Delivering value should be at the core of everything you do as a leader. Most organizations try to do way too much, so one of the hardest jobs leaders have is to actually stop non-value adding activities. The lessons covered in this module are:
Every exceptional leader knows how to manage tough conversations. The ability to handle conflict is a core leadership capability. Without it, a leader will eventually fail. The lessons covered in this module are:
You're paid to do a job, and the job at every level is different. If you're busy doing someone else's job, you're not doing your own! In this module, you'll learn exactly how to move through each leadership level seamlessly and effectively, how to make yourself promotable and how to deal with a micromanaging boss. The lessons covered are:
We all face obstacles, setbacks and disappointments in our careers, and your success depends very much on how well you can manage these inevitable setbacks. In this module, I'll reveal how to control your mental, emotional, and physical state in the face of adversity. The lessons we cover are:
LET'S BREAK it DOWN
Your job as a leader is to sit comfortably in ambiguity and to provide certainty and clarity to your team to navigate them through it. In this module, you'll learn the tools to be able to work out what matters and what doesn’t when you’re faced with uncertainty, and how to communicate your next steps with confidence. The lessons covered are:
I don't know any exceptional leaders who aren't also great decision makers. In this module, you'll learn what makes a truly great decision, how to communicate major decisions to your people and the importance of speed over accuracy. The lessons covered are:
Shared accountability is no accountability! In this module, you'll learn how to set clear accountability structures within your team and how to create an environment where people feel truly empowered to make decisions. The lessons covered are:

Each week for 8 weeks, you will gain access to a new module that consists of easy-to-follow videos with accompanying worksheets and resources. We recommend allowing at least 3 hours weekly. This will give you time to reflect on the content, and integrate the techniques into your existing leadership repertoire.
Exchange ideas and have discussions on best practice with your cohort in a private Leadership Beyond the Theory Slack community full of leaders from around the globe. It's here where we'll post extra videos and resources that are required throughout the program.
Each week you will have live access to Martin through a Q&A webinar (two per week to accommodate for all time zones), where you will be able to further consolidate your learning of each module. While these sessions aren't compulsory, we highly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity.
This is the best leadership course I've ever done. I felt like I had my own personal leadership coach!
What makes LBT different is Marty’s lived experience. Most leadership courses I've done have been led by someone who's done a lot of research, but hasn't actually ran a business. It's also delivered virtually and in a flexible way, which is very cutting edge!
After completing the program, I am more clear and confident in what I need to do to take the standard in my team to the next level.
There is something in this course for every leader!
This program is impactful no matter where you are in your career. I wish I had it 30 years ago!
I wanted a program based on actual experience. I frequently find leadership programs that are based on academic research or leadership "coaching" and I wanted to actually learn from someone that made it all the way up the ladder.
The blended learning approach of LBT was just what I was looking for. An added bonus was the LinkedIn community!
I recently moved from a COO role to taking over running a company that our parent group had acquired. Not only was I faced with the challenge of stepping up to a broader leadership role, but I also had the challenge of leading a team that was nervous about the acquisition. LBT seemed like a natural choice when we were looking for a suitable leadership program.
Even after all these years in leadership there was still so much to learn or that challenged my thinking and approach.
Would I recommend LBT for anyone truly committed to their own personal growth? YES, YES, YES!!
If you want to move forward, lead with confidence and remove uncertainty from your leadership then this is a no-brainer!
I care about developing others just as much as developing myself, so I was looking for help in areas such as having tough conversations and creating stronger accountability.
After doing the program, I have more confidence, and my team is benefiting from better and clearer communication.
I’ve already recommended to my boss that we put all leaders through this program!
Before LBT, I felt I was lacking practical leadership skills and was doubting my ability to lead such a large team.
I had struggled with the transition from being an expert in my chosen technical field into a leadership role. I had taken several leadership courses and read ALL the books on being a great leader, but still felt something was missing.
After completing LBT, I've been able to coach my direct reports more effectively when they're facing challenges.
The content was just so practical and actionable. I was implementing in the first week!!
The company I work for went through a merger and acquisition 3 years ago. The usual transitional challenges that come with this were compounded by a very buoyant market, meaning that talent retention is a challenge but also vital. I wanted to make sure I was doing all I could to help build a dedicated and stable team of high performers. In terms of my own career progression, I was looking for some insights to help me progress in the company.
I've done a few management and leadership courses over the years, and this is up there with the best of them in terms of structure and content. Absolutely do LBT if you have the chance!
About two years ago, I began a role where I became a leader of leaders. As I strive to grow as a leader, I constantly seek ways to learn and develop. Leadership requires the ability to be nimble, quick thinking and strategic, all at the same time.
Leadership Beyond the Theory absolutely exceeded my expectations!
If you can take this course, take it! I can’t even put into words the value of this program. I am especially happy that I will have access to all of the content for life!
I had a desire to be a better leader, and really lacked the toolkit to lead and build high performing teams.
Leadership Beyond the Theory provided a framework that really works when put into action!
It’s the most practical program that I’ve completed, which has helped me really move the needle on performance.
No matter where you are in your leadership journey, you will get something from this program!
I’ve paid upwards of $10,000 for other courses before. Knowing what I know now, post-Leadership Beyond the Theory, I would have paid $10,000 or more.
Promotions and the noticeable difference amongst your peers will make the return on investment very quick. In fact - I had results in the first two weeks as I was using my CEO and team as crash test dummies.
Leadership Beyond the Theory has become my leadership bible!
I was looking for a clear, applicable and focused leadership development course that would give me useful, real life solutions that I could put into practice straight away, and LBT delivered ten fold!
This has been the BEST leadership training that I have ever done. The content delivery, LinkedIn group, private podcast access for the lessons and the question structure has just been amazing!
I recommend this program to anyone who is serious about leadership!
After completing Leadership Beyond the Theory, I set about changing my working behaviour. I focused on key business activities and limited project interactions at the right level for my role.
My staff are more empowered and I have significantly more time to work on the business activities that generate value.
By far the best aspect of this program is the practicality of it all. The course really inspired me to think about how I was leading, what elements needed improvement, and demanded that improvement occur during the week.
I was looking for a way to improve my skillset so that I could bring more value to my teams. I wanted to be a better leader so that I could get better results for my projects, my teams, my Board, my volunteers and my organization.
I am more confident in thinking of the wider strategy and pulling everything back to value creation. I couldn't have done that before!
You could be on day one of your leadership journey, or 20 years in and I am convinced that you will walk away knowing more than you did at the start. Not only about leadership, but about yourself too!
The whole experience of Leadership Beyond the Theory was another level above what I expected.
I got more practical, relevant, immediate, implementable outcomes from LBT than any other personal development course or activity I have undertaken before.
Don't hesitate to do this course! Whether you have been 'around the traps' or you're setting out on your leadership career, there will be more for you to take out and plug in to your everyday leadership style, from session one on day one!
The program exceeded my expectation in all aspects. The beauty of it is that it's suitable for all levels of leadership, from new starters to CEOs in any industry.
I’ve been through a number of leadership programs in 4 continents and there is none other like Leadership Beyond the Theory.
It has enabled me to learn and fast-track implementation of the do's and don't's of effective leadership with ease and confidence.
This program is truly world class and is a MUST for all leaders from any industry.
Doing this program was such a wake-up call on what's holding me back in my leadership journey. I cannot explain how invaluable the program has been for me at the current stage of my career!
I have definitely seen an increase in confidence in my leadership capability, which has assisted over this challenging period with COVID-19 and the significant impact on the hospitality and tourism sector.
Leadership Beyond the Theory will be the perfect jump-start to your leadership experience and will set you up to excel in your career moving forward.
As a young leader of a large team, I was facing many new challenges very quickly. I knew that I needed a framework to help me navigate these situations.
Now, after taking Leadership Beyond the Theory, my manager has recognised a positive shift in the way I approach leadership problems and my team is also providing some very positive feedback about my leadership approach.
I am now making decisions based on tried-and-true methods from a teacher who has already walked the path. I'm seeing immediate short-term results and signs of great results ahead!
I had recently started on my management path and I felt I needed the leadership foundations to build upon. I was looking for something that would help me to do that, and that’s what I got from Leadership Beyond the Theory!
After doing the program, I’m far more confident in leading. My team appreciates my newly articulated communication which has brought clearer guidance for them to be able to perform their best.
This program will truly increase your leadership abilities immediately with a clear reflection on both your personal performance and your team’s performance.
Many leaders know that they aren't yet performing at their peak. This program unlocks your latent leadership potential.
Nothing builds confidence faster than seeing results, and this program is designed specifically to help you deliver results, fast!
This program will help you to take control and establish your brand as the 'leader who always delivers'.
So let's get into it!

Now, Wilson has the confidence in his ability to lead and his team feel more empowered and engaged than ever before!

Yes, It Really Works
"I recommend Leadership Beyond the Theory to ANYONE who wants to be a more effective leader."
Towards the end of the program, Charlotte was invited to present an EOFY return on marketing investment report to the board of directors. The program equipped her with the tools to know what value-accretive, strategy-aligned outcomes to focus on in her report. It helped her to feel confident giving that presentation, as well as negotiating with and influencing those above her.
"I now understand my leadership strengths and weaknesses so I'm clearer on how I can maximise what I'm good at and what I need to keep working on"
Amit noticed a significant increase in his confidence as a leader. He now feels well-equipped with a bunch of tools and techniques that he can refer to when he need to work through the never-ending onslaught of leadership challenges!
"I didn't expect to be as confronted and challenged as I have been, or to have the level of clarity and focus it has given me"
Before Leadership Beyond the Theory, Ricardo thought that he already had a base-line knowledge on the skills taught in this course, but through the program, he realized that his level of understanding was increasing exponentially with Martin's teachings!
"While the concepts may be complex, Marty does an absolutely amazing job at simplifying it"
LBT came at a perfect time for Mushfiq. He was in a career break looking for his next opportunity and had already referred a few colleagues to the program. Doing the program gave him a chance to reflect on the key principles of leadership before he starts his new role.
"If you want to build a high performing team, you would do well to put your leaders through this training."
Jim joined LBT because he has an interest in growing as a leader and knows he has a responsibility to develop those that work directly and indirectly for him and the organization. After doing the program, Jim says that not only is it critical to do LBT for yourself (and worth the expense because of the ROI) but that if you want to build a high performing team, you would do well to enrol anyone that you consider an up and coming leader to join the program.
"This program is impactful no matter
where you are in your career. I wish I had it 30 years ago!"
Before Robert found LBT, he was in a position where he had inherited a legacy team with decades of history with the company. While he was confident in his ability to lead the team into a new paradigm, after 8 months he felt like things weren't moving fast enough! Now that I have take LBT, he's found that he has increased his operational pace dramatically. He's been able to keep the team focused on what they CAN work on, which minimizes the noise!
To give this investment some context, how much would your bonus increase this year if you outperformed all your targets?
How much would your salary and earning capacity increase if your boss chose you as their successor?
With increased leadership performance, you’re going to stand out from your peers as the leader who always delivers.
Now think about that over a career; just being promoted sooner could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to you.

There’s never a good time to find an extra 3 hours in your week. Ironically, the higher up you go in an organisation, the less time you have!
COVID-19 was bad timing for us all, but successful leaders find ways to get things done regardless of their external circumstances. Don’t make excuses. How important is your career? Is it important enough to you to wake up half an hour earlier each day, or watch one less Netflix episode at night?
Competent leadership is a right, not a privilege. The faster you improve, the faster your team will get the leadership they deserve.
We designed the program to be as flexible as possible, so that busy leaders are able to fit it into their already very full lives.
We’ve kept the content short and sharp, aiming for 'simple but powerful' with every video and worksheet. This means no fluff, just the stuff that matters!
You can get through the lessons in ~35-mins / day (5-days a week) and there’s a one hour webinar every week that you can join live where Martin will answer questions from the cohort. Can’t make the webinar? No problem, just watch the replay the following week!
Over the past three years we’ve proven that this program works in any industry. Banking, mining, education, insurance, emergency services, technology, real estate, not for profit, government, supermarkets, manufacturing, childcare, hospitality, marketing, advertising, healthcare, energy, transportation…which goes to show how applicable the tools are.
We encourage you to check out the case studies and read what different leaders have got from the program ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’. Find the leaders that resonate most with you in terms of your industry, leadership level and business size and read their candid feedback.
Experience tells us that this program is a no regrets move for anyone, whether you lead 1 person or 10,000 people.
We’ve had hundreds of leaders globally, from novices to CEOs, improve their leadership confidence and skills through the program.
But don’t take our word for it, have a read through some of the case studies that we’ve captured from past students and filter by the leadership level you're at - new, mid, senior or CEO/Director. Their stories will help you to understand what you can expect to get out of the program.
"I had been listening to the podcasts for a year. It's great content BUT I didn't know how to group all the information and how to apply my learnings. I thought that if I listened to the podcasts first then did the course I would get more out of the it. However, I recommend doing the course then listening to the podcasts after!"
Area Manager | CPB Contractors
"The obvious difference is the live interaction with Marty and the other participants. The discussions and different viewpoints shared by the students are golden! It's great to know that the issues are the same for all of us despite the different industries we work in."
Head of Industrial Quality | Virbac Australia
"The program is definitely more detailed. Using the Implementation Playbook to make notes that you can refer back to and to use as a guide for thinking about real life situations is a great tool. The access to Marty & Em and the interactive nature of the program is a key difference!"
Senior Partner Manager | Payrix Australia
"The podcast captures so many great snapshots of Marty's leadership philosophies, however it's difficult to really drill-down on these and put them into practical application. The course content dives deeper into each subject matter and you can then implement what you've learnt."
General Manager APAC | Enrolmy Software
"The difference with the training is the webinars and videos which enable tailored answers to questions, and also the Accountability Pods where you're able to workshop leadership concepts with peers. There is some overlap in content but LBT has different examples and goes into more depth."
CEO & Director | Investa Projects
"I always found the podcasts interesting and the book was good but it's only after LBT that I can tie everything together. The weekly webinars and listening to others questions really gave so many different views and more to think about."
Finance Manager | AKD Softwoods
"There's some great synergies between the 3 platforms. Personally for me it's all about learning. I don't learn well from just listening to a podcast. I found myself constantly pulling over in my car to take notes. The program webinars create collaboration and this is truly invaluable."

I'm Martin, your leadership mentor.
After a 33-year-long career, in which I worked my way up from an entry-level position in software development to later becoming a CIO, an SVP, and a Head of Strategy, and eventually the CEO of a multi-billion dollar business, I traded in my corner office for an enriching career as a leadership performance expert at Your CEO Mentor.
I started this business with my daughter, Emma, in 2018, and it has enabled me to positively impact hundreds of thousands of leaders around the world - something I would never have been able to achieve otherwise.
My experience as the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company enables me to sweep away the mystical fog surrounding leadership today and lay out the essential steps for success.
I also host No Bullsh!t Leadership, a weekly chart-topping podcast with over 3 million listens and I am the author of the Wall Street Journal best selling book, No Bullsh!t Leadership.
We believe that Leadership Beyond the Theory is unique because it is taught by a successful CEO who built his career through trial and error - so now you don't have to!
Martin has distilled his 30+ years of leadership success into a proven, practical roadmap. It simplifies complex leadership concepts, and gives you the tools to actually implement change.
The real acid test for any product or service is how likely the people who have used it would be to recommend it to a friend or colleague.
In the case of Leadership Beyond the Theory, 99% of students have said they would recommend it.
99.5% of leaders say that after doing this program, they felt like a more confident, capable leader.
If our students weren't getting a significant amount of value from the program, there is no way we'd have those stats to share with you. Don’t take our word for it, read the case studies from our students who have actually completed the program!
The average completion rates for online courses can often be as low as 10% and up to as high as 60%.
We're proud that our student completion rate is 85%. This demonstrates both the value and the manageability of the program!
Going through it with a cohort of like-minded leaders helps to maintain momentum, and our customer success team ensures that every leader is supported on their journey.
One of the most unique things about Leadership Beyond the Theory is that you'll have access to Martin after you've completed that week's module.
Each week Martin and Em run two live webinar Q&A sessions. While these sessions aren't compulsory, we highly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity. It will give you a chance to ask Martin questions about that week's module, and gain any clarity you need to start implementing.
Ultimately, your increased leadership capability will only benefit your organization! The return on investment for your boss will be massive. We’ve even created a sample pitch to make this easy for you!
