"I lost many opportunities due to lack of confidence. Now, I help others get to the next level"
Message From Manoj Vasudevan (Click To Read)

From the desk of Manoj Vasudevan CEO Thought Expressions,

Next Level Leadership Readiness Expert, Founder of Leader By Design System, Author, Keynote Speaker, World Champion of Public Speaking


Hi. This is Manoj Vasudevan. Confident Leader Program is part of my life’s work… LIVE Sessions with me that will unlock your true leadership potential and develop a strong belief in yourself for daily returns for the rest of your life.


It’s brought name & fame to me, my clients, and hordes of executives, professionals and entrepreneurs who have wisely taken the time to learn the Leader by Design system - how to become a leader others admire and follow


If you're not 100% sure who I am...


People from 100+ countries have benefited from my content, courses and coaching.  Why did they come to me? I have the mission to help people like you become a better speaker, leader and influencer - no matter where you start. I am also the 2017 World Champion of Public Speaking and Chief Mentor at Next Level Unlimited. My passion is to help people like you to breakthrough to the next level of your career, business and life – I have authored and co-authored international bestsellers...


But, that's not where I started.....  I was just like YOU! That's right....


For the major part of my life, I struggled to show up with confidence at work, to demonstrate leadership in social circles, and in the community, even when it mattered the most! I do regret that I missed one opportunity after another because I didn't see myself as a leader. Even when I heard "you can be a leader without a title", I didn't know how to develop my leadership potential systematically.


I wasted my time worrying about what others will think if I took initiative. I was afraid to make mistakes, face rejection and failure.... More degrees was not going to solve my problem. Here's why.... I was facing what Gay Hendricks would say an Upper Limit problem.....


Here's what it means: Whenever you are about to grow and have a breakthrough, you are tempted to do something silly or stupid, that will bring you down back to the comfortable previous situation you have grown familiar to. You self-sabotage your opportunity of growth by limiting yourself. ​You start to talk yourself out of your path to progress. You will find an excuse to stay the same. (In the meantime, you fail to grab all amazing opportunities that go right past you)


Things started to change for me when I realised...

... the world needs more good people to show leadership ...

... you can become a fabulous leader no matter where you start.

... your leadership matters... now more than ever....


For more than a decade, I’ve been helping myself and others to show up confidently in the corporate world and in the community championing causes, creating some of the most successful and legendary transformation for my clients.... including Billion-Dollar CEOs, UN Diplomats, Professionals and more from every walk of life.... When I was featured on media like BBC, CNBC, Business Insiders, my college friends ask me... "You never used to speak much .... Now, oh WOW!. How did you do that?...."


What I learnt  is what I share with others like you..

I studied books & biographies.... I watched videos & lessons... of the best and the greatest.  I signed up for personal coaching to learn directly from the best and the brightest to make up for lost time and opportunities. What is #1 LEADERSHIP SECRET I learnt? Most people in high positions were ordinary people like you and me... The picked up some skills and competencies that helped them to become the leader others admire and follow.


Still there was something I wasn't sure of.

Why didn't I start earlier? Why didn't someone simplify these for me?

It shouldn't take too long! Why don't more people master these life skills?

First reason is... Lack of Confidence.

Lack of Confidence keeps you in a cage. Fortunately, that cage can be unlocked.

Without confidence, no matter what you want to do, no matter what you want to be, you are inside the cage. That's the hard truth....


Here's what I discovered...

... after helping people from more than 100 countries to become better version of themselves

... after meeting people from around the world...

... after studying people and their stories...

... Warning: you may not like what I say next. But it's the hard truth...


You too can become a confident person.

You too can become a confident leader. 

You too can become a confident executive... 

.... even if you are introvert...

.... even if you are shy...

.... even if you have been playing small so far...


For that to happen,

you need to be willing to do three things...

– you admit you have more to learn

– you become coachable

– you become willing to act whenever you see the right opportunity


Until that happens....  the cage shrinks... regrets grows... the opportunities will come & go as you wait & watch.....

Most people stare at the cost of doing something... But they never see the hidden cost of doing nothing...

... and choose to stay in the comfort of the cage, even if they feel humiliated, frustrated and disappointed.

There is a huge cost for doing nothing and choosing to stay inside the cage.


How can you break free from the cage?

Well, the cage doesn't disappear with age....!

the cage doesn't disappear unless you choose to change

But.... the good news is

we can still get out of the cage at any age...

you can break-free with strong confidence...


As you are about to enter unfamiliar territory, you might feel "I am not ready for this. How can I?" That's normal.

But, when you choose to step out of your comfort zone with professional help, the unfamiliar becomes familiar, the familiar becomes the new normal. You too can go from the zone of fear to the zone of familiarity  to the zone of freedom.


You can experience a way of existence you never even imagined before... starting TODAY!


You see, people don't see you for the value you have. They see you for the value YOU convey!  When you become a Confident Leader, you convey your competence with the highest-level of confidence and clarity. The formula below summarises this well


Competence + Confidence + Clarity + Overcoming Limiting Beliefs + Personal Leadership Blueprint= [Unlock The Leader In YOU]


The system you learn is unique and no one else teaches this because it was not copied from books. The system crystallised after I worked directly with people in 100+ countries and tested with real people like you and perfected over the years. Please note....


I am NOT SPECIAL. I just found better ways to do things faster without wasting time.


Well ,I found these after spending  thousands of hours  –  hundreds of thousands of dollars – learning things and figuring out what works really well. That's the secret of success for me and my clients. I teach what I know will work for sure. Now you have the choice to take advantage of these tools  without wasting all that time and money figuring out all by yourself or from someone with second-hand knowledge.


If you are ready and willing... I am here to help...


You will learn exactly how I do it and helped others to do it.

AND how YOU can succeed with renewed confidence in your leadership potential starting TODAY!


You do not even need ANY prior experience.


You learn in a simplified structure step-by-step manner in an extremely safe environment.


It doesn't matter where you start. It matters whether you start.


As Steve Martin said "Be So Good. They Can't Ignore You"


You do not have to know how. I have the know-how.

I am willing to share that with you. If you are willing....


The time is now to invest in a New YOU!  Get started Today!

"Thank you Manoj for delivering complex concepts of leadership in a much simpler and more practical way. Topics like defining our future self and installing self belief system have deeper connotation. Practical examples in corporate parlance are apt. Thank you once again for the CLP program and I am benefitted immensely. Looking forward to be part of the similar enriching session again."

~Debashis C, CLP Participant

The CLP program was a great leadership lerning experience. The 4 sessions held were truly eye opening. My objective for enrolling into the program was to improve my leadership skills. The coaching sessions by Manoj were well executed, with his experience in the area a key differentiator from other leadership programs I have encountered. I encourage all interested to apply for the program, and I look forward to the LEAP program that I have also enrolled in.

It is a great course which is focussed on the need of people and try to hammer the nitty-gritty of human's thought which helps the person to work collectively and achieve the goals.

How can I learn leadership through Zoom sessions?

Great question. You will cement your learning by application in real life. There are three way you achieve this. Firstly, we ensure that you learn theory and practice during each session. Secondly, the sessions are staggered so that you have more time to implement what you learn between sessions and come back for more, allowing you more time to reflect, implement and assimilate. Thirdly, the sessions are interactive, you can learn through discussions and sharing. You also get to ask questions to address the challenges you are facing in your context. With these steps you miss nothing compared to LIVE in-class sessions. People from over 50 countries have attended our courses without leaving home. It will also work for you.
