Here’s the truth: as the market evolves, businesses need to evolve with it. Everyone knows that. But the idea of Change qua Change is as hackneyed as it is difficult to inspire.
So let’s take that nebulous idea of Change and make it relevant again. And then let's take the reason you're interested in it - You're in a Leadership Position - and make it real. The result: The Frontier Project's course, "Leading Change." Eschewing trendy, fashionable ideas for ones that are a bit more deep-seated, "Leading Change" compiles the best available literature on the subject and flavors it with our own expertise to bring you a fast-paced, one-day class that'll teach you how to effectively navigate what we've identified as the three essential steps to influencing change:
1.) Convince the rational mind. 2.) Harness the emotional reaction. 3.) Provide an environment for the change to flourish.
We'll give you the tools and techniques needed to execute each of these steps, making sure you walk out of here with a concise understanding of how to lead and inspire change.
Ideal participants: Leaders, managers, and change agents alike who have been charged with leading a change initiative.
Dress Code: Absolutely whatever takes your mood that day.
Food: Don't worry, we'll provide lunch. We'll always offer a vegetarian option for every meal. Any other dietary restrictions we're happy to accommodate, just let us know in advance.

It’s about more than just the content.
