2017 Father’s Day 5K – Dallas

2017 Father’s Day 5K – Dallas
Event on 2017-06-18 08:00:00
*THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! Join us for our fourth annual FATHER'S DAY 5K virtual race!   It's time to celebrate your World's Best Dad! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.” When: Complete your race any time in June.  Father's Day is June 18, 2017! Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why:  Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K in honor of all of the DAD's out there.   We will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to Team Hoyt. Cost: .  Includes custom medal and bib that will be shipped directly to you. There is also an option to get two medals, to get an extra one to give to the favorite father in your life.   Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Team Hoyt.  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.* Medals will beginning shipping in May.

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. You may send someone in your place, but we ask that you do give us notice that you are doing so. Thank you for your understanding!

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.
