The Front of the Class
Program length: 24:00

The Front of the Class training video takes us back to school for a refresher course on being in charge.

Being a supervisor is like moving to the front of the class: everyone around you is watching your moves and expecting the best. But it takes more than a promotion or a job title to be a great supervisor. It takes leadership. The backbone of this program is a simple question every supervisor must continually ask themselves: "You only succeed when they do, so what do they need from you to succeed?"

Hilarious recollections of a child's best and worst teachers, the moving story of a classroom hero, flashbacks to the teacher's pet and everyone's favorite homework excuses bring wisdom, warmth and a sense of humor to a memorable lesson on the qualities of a true leader.

    Lori Collins - Artemis Leadership Coaching & Consulting
I'm looking for a simple leadership video that works in a multi-cultural setting where most of the people are speaking English as a second language. And where a certain amount of diversity is represented in the video characters. I think I've found that video in Front of the Class. Thanks!
    Rob Harris - Coastline Training and Development, Inc.
The tenets of leadership are sound and very practical. Getting leaders to make behavioral changes based upon showing "The Front of the Class" only may happen, but I believe it would be most effective as part of a more comprehensive instuctor-led or coaching session for leadership development.
    Tony Fernandez-Vinas - OXY Inc.
Great production values. Good mix of humor and pathos. At first, the school setting was a turn off, but I quickly changed my mind. There's solid training wrapped in a quality package. Good job.
