The Roadmap to Success, Me Model, and We (team) Model are all based on the Think Like a Genius® Process which was created at M.I.T. by Dr. Todd Siler and developed over 18 years through the efforts of Think Like a Genius LLC.


The Process has been applied worldwide to:

  • Schools

  • Organizations - for profit and non-profit

  • Individuals and Families

  • General public

The Think Like a Genius® book was published by Bantam Books and has sold over 120,000 copies in eight languages.


A software version of the Think Like a Genius Modeling Process was released in 2008.


The pilot Think Like a Genius for Education (aka the ArtScience Program) trained over 200 teachers and reached over 20,000 students in the Denver Metro area from 1998 - 2003.
