Frontier Academy Dallas: Innovation Mindset

Frontier Academy Dallas: Innovation Mindset
Event on 2017-11-14 09:00:00
Idea Creation + Practical Execution = Innovation A good idea executed is much more powerful than an excellent idea that never leaves the whiteboard. Innovation is more than just creativity, brainstorming, and coming up with new ideas. Innovation must be grounded in business principles, be actionable and executable, and ultimately help to bridge the gap between the current state and future of the business. Our Innovation workshop focuses on the two most important facets of innovation: idea generation and practical execution. Participants will learn a process through which they can look at issues from different perspectives to generate new ideas and solutions. They will also get practical tools to help them assess the viability of their ideas and how to pitch their innovations to win stakeholder approval. Ideal participants: High-potential junior, mid-level, and senior managers who are responsible for increasing performance in their organization. — We understand that circumstances change, but for planning purposes Frontier Academy requires 48 hours notice if you need to cancel, or reschedule, in order to receive a full refund, otherwise you will be charged the workshop’s full amount.

Frontier Academy Dallas: Insight Selling

Frontier Academy Dallas: Insight Selling
Event on 2017-07-18 09:00:00
Gone are the days of sales being a numbers game: the more prospects identified, the more cold calls dialed, the more sales pitches delivered, the higher chance of making a sale. Not only do prospects dislike general sales calls, but sales people are tired of this methodology as well. Everyone is craving a system of efficiency – where the prospective client doesn’t feel “sold to” and the sales people don’t spend a great deal of time prepping for pitches that will ultimately end with a “no.” Insight selling is an approach to partnering with clients that has the potential to cut the waste out of the sales systems from the past. The prospects that are identified will truly have a need for your product or service, and you are in a position to share your solution, and partner with them to solve their problems. It allows a perfect match to be created between customer and vendor – one with a partnership potential that can last years and years into the future. In this workshop we’ll teach participants how to gain valuable and in-depth insight into their prospects and build solutions that can uniquely solve their problem. By anticipating the needs of their customers, participants will be able to position their companies to become ongoing partners, and become embedded in the customers’ teams. This workshop will take the pain out of selling and ensure each sales situation yields much more productive results than trying to win by playing the numbers game. Ideal Participants: Sales staff who want to increase the effectiveness of their prospecting and sales conversations. — We understand that circumstances change, but for planning purposes Frontier Academy requires 48 hours notice if you need to cancel, or reschedule, in order to receive a full refund, otherwise you will be charged the workshop’s full amount.

Frontier Academy Dallas: Leading Change

Frontier Academy Dallas: Leading Change
Event on 2017-06-22 09:00:00
Most workshops on change management promise that if you follow their steps, you’re guaranteed to lead a successful change initiative in your organization.  We agree there’s a process, but we also know from experience how crucial it is to address the emotional aspects of navigating change.   Our Leading Change workshop covers three tenets of change: logic, emotion, and environment.  Knowing all three require attention, we provide practical, actionable tools that participants can utilize personally and with their teams to lead them through the various change initiatives for which they are accountable. Ideal participants: Experienced managers who have been charged with moving their organization forward through a change. — We understand that circumstances change, but for planning purposes Frontier Academy requires 48 hours notice if you need to cancel, or reschedule, in order to receive a full refund, otherwise you will be charged the workshop’s full amount.
