Relevant and inspiring content to reflect on
I’m never going to get to all the books I want to read, and this podcast helps me play catch up! Love the guests — they typically have a unique and thought-provoking perspective to share. The Frontier Academy hosts and facilitators ask great questions and aren’t afraid to challenge assumptions. Anyone interested in business, culture, and human behavior should subscribe.
So many amazing books, never enough time!
I love reading, and have read many of the books that Frontier Academy suggests, but I don't always have time to dig into every book that comes across my desk -- and that's where this podcast comes in handy! Whether the podcast is a peek into a book that I decided I simply HAVE TO read, or a recap for a book that's like a "Cliff's Notes", I always get something awesome from these folks.
Perfect for the busy leader!
If you're moving too fast to read the latest business and leadership books, this is the podcast for you! Thoughful synthesis combined with the Frontier's humor/wit make for an enjoyable and informative listen.
