FaQ

What is the Flow Research Collective?

The Flow Research Collective is a peak performance research and training institute. On the research side, we’re partnered with universities like Stanford, UCLA, USC and institutions like Deloitte, attempting to understand what happens in the brain and body when human beings are performing at their best. On the training side, we build training programs that help business leaders improve their professional performance by accessing flow states more consistently.

Is Flow for Writers an online training?

Flow for Writers is fully digitally delivered. That means you can do it from anywhere. However, it’s nothing like your usual “online course”. Most online courses have a 3% completion rate. Flow for Writers has a 100% completion rate. This is because it involves live engagement with Steven Kotler and other incredible, aspiring authors from across the globe. It’s not just a big, empty video library.

What’s the purpose of “booking an interview” for Flow for Writers?

One of the important features of the Flow for Writers is the group coaching and community. What makes this so great, is that everyone in Flow for Writers is an inspiring, mission driven coach, consultant or facilitator. The interview process allows us to curate this kind of community and ensure it’s a good fit for both sides. 

When does Flow for Writers start?

You can join as soon as you’re accepted into the Flow for Writers after your interview. However, we do reach coaching capacity, so if you’re interested, we recommend you apply right away. Who will my coach be?

Who will my coach be?

You'll be assigned an expert-level coach by us. You’ll also work with more than one coach over the duration of the training. 

Why does Flow for Writers exist?

As far as we could tell there is no science backed training that teaches business leaders, all the skills needed to unlock sustained peak performance and flow. Zero to Dangerous fills that void. 

Tell me how Flow for writers works one more time… 

Sure. There are three components and they happen in parallel. First, eight weeks of daily video content and exercises. Second, one on one coaching with a PhD trainer every other week for eight weeks. Third, lifetime access to weekly group coaching with the rest of the Flow Research Collective community. 

Who teaches the video content in Flow for Writers?

The content will be taught by both Steven Kotler, 3X New York Times bestselling author and world renowned peak-performance expert and Rian Doris, Kotler’s Co-Founder here at the Flow Research Collective. You’ll love their complementary styles!

"You want to write a bestselling book, successfully launch it to the world, reach the people you want to impact and build your brand and credibility while doing so? Look no further, just join Flow for Writers now!

Raul Villacis
CEO at Next Level Experience
