Frontier Academy Boston: Influencing Stakeholders
Pick up any university's executive education catalog (or inflight magazine for that matter) and you’ll see endless courses offered in “selling,” “persuasion” and “winning.” We’re not interested in any of that. This workshop teaches participants the core skills in the art (not science) of influence. We teach participants how to identify key stakeholders, understand what drives them, and communicate with them in a way they authentically hear. Participants will learn how to structure discussions, use visual tools of communication, and project authentic authority to influence decisions and behaviors. Deeply immersive, peer-reviewed and applied to real scenarios facing your organization, this program is designed to stretch high-caliber individuals to develop a powerful, authentic influence style congruent to their roles and personality. Ideal Participants: High potential individuals looking to maximize their impact in the 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. 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!

MODULE D, BOSTON: SOCIAL INNOVATION
Professor: Joanne Lawrence Course ID:  9221 Course description:  Despite trillions of dollars in development aid, the majority of the world’s population – more than 4 billion people – still live on less than $2 a day. As governments seek solutions to social problems such as access to water, healthcare, and food security, there are corporations with enormous resources who are seeking new markets and opportunities. As the needs of both sectors converge, does business ingenuity provide a more viable option than aid to solve the complex problem of poverty and create inclusive value? This course introduces students to the concept of ‘social innovation’ and the potential of market-based approaches to creatively and proactively address some of the world’s most pressing societal problems at same time offering companies new markets and new opportunities to growth. We consider new business models, such as innovative approaches by multinational corporations who are pursuing ‘social intrapreneurship and embedding sustainability in product development, supply chain management, marketing and distribution ; public/private partnerships that are co-creating value and the burgeoning field of socially-driven entrepreneurship. We’ll learn and apply methods and tools that are crossing disciplines such theories of change, design and systems thinking, social marketing and behavioral change communication, effective partnering , digitally-driven change, and the development of new financing models. Teams will have the option of developing their own socially-driven, financially viable business idea or of working with an outside group, such as the United Nations Development Program, to develop business based solutions to real time social problems. *Terms and Conditions  By signing up for this elective and paying the administration fee you hereby agree to the full terms and conditions of participating in the 2016 Lifelong Learning program.

Model UN 2016 Summer institute: International Security-Failed States
International Security, Failed States: One of the defining characteristics of a “successful government” is the responsibility to protect its citizens; what happens when a state can no longer provide national security, or when the government itself threatens the people?

The topic of failed states is an issue that has become prevalent in recent years, and one that global organizations are struggling to address. This institute will ask students what it means to live in a country without a government, and whose responsibility it is to rebuild a state after a failure. For students interested in international relations and security, this is an excellent opportunity! Summer Model UN Institutes: Meet other students who are passionate about global affairs Learn from guest speakers, including NGO leaders, to diplomats, to local politicians  Delve into current political issues Improve your public speaking and negotiation techniques Learn new Model UN strategies!  Event Details Cost: $595 per student/week Who: Students entering grades 7-12 Where: Harvard University, 9am-4pm Questions: Contact us!  Call 617-482-4587 or visit www.UNAGB.org

Introduction to the Metal Lathe May 2016
Description: This class will teach students how to setup the metal lathe for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to perform machining operations to tolerances of one-thousandth of an inch. Successful completion of this course will provide students with the knowledge needed to participate in tool testing for the Artisan’s Asylum metal lathe. This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the lathe. Class Goals: Session 1 will cover basic safety, setup and usage of the lathe. Students will learn to assess the condition of the lathe, select tools, secure materials in the chuck and perform facing and turning operations. Session 2 will expand on Session 1 and will cover selecting feeds and speeds, cutting tapers, drilling and tapping and general lathe care. Prerequisites: Students must be able to safely reach all of the lathe controls. Students must be 18+ What to Bring: Please wear shop appropriate attire: closed-toe shoes, no loose clothing or dangly jewelry, long hair tied back.    Event Time: Session 1: Wednesday, May 18, 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Session 2: Wednesday, May 25, 7:00pm to 9:00pm.   Instructor:  Damian Ward began working with metal when he brought home an oxy-acetylene rig in 2009 and began welding. Arc welding followed soon after, along with melting and casting aluminum. Since joining the Artisan's Asylum, Damian has spent almost all of his free time in the machine shop and has lost track of how many hours he has spent in front of the mill.  In addition to his metalworking, Damian has worked on a dairy farm, pulled network cable, worked for Lockheed Martin, and practiced criminal law. Damian's favorite Doctor Who companion is Wilfred Mott.     ARTISAN'S ASYLUM STUDENT POLICIES   After you buy your ticket here on Eventbrite, please register in Artisan's Asylum's system: https://artisansasylum.com/membership/registration/   Purchase of a ticket expresses acceptance of A2's Refunds and Cancellation policies found here: https://artisansasylum.com/classpolicies/   Attending class FAQ: https://artisansasylum.com/current-classes/ Support our mission!
