This has just been an absolutely phenomenal experience. I've learned a ton about myself and I realized that there are a lot of people that have a very similar journey to me. I think this program would be perfect for those who have really exhausted where they're at and they're looking for that next step.

STARTERS immerses you in Detroit's comeback culture. This program gives you access to the some of the smartest people in the reinvention space today. You'll get to have the kind of meaningful conversations you've only dreamed of having about your job, your life and your goals. Meanwhile, you’ll be learning the fundamentals of reinvention through engaging and interactive content.

This is your behind-the-scenes pass to the space where next level ideas are being discovered, tested and put into play. STARTERS gives you first-hand insight from Detroit's innovators, creators and business leaders, then helps you make their tips and tricks work for you.

Well at first I thought STARTERS would be for leaders of organizations but really STARTERS is for anyone - even an individual who's going through a personal reinvention'

I definitely would recommend starters. I think it's a really good program. Mike Bills and his team are fantastic. They really get you thinking in ways you didn't think before.


You're not safe from disruption

Fact: No one is immune to disruptive new dynamics in business. The question is, what do you do with the disruption? And, where do you go to understand it and use it to your advantage?

Traditionally, organizations are reactive, stuck nursing historical behavior instead of nurturing sustainable change. But responding to past problems with old solutions is a recipe for failure.

You have to hit the brakes so you can create a new reality. A reality where a forward-looking technique rules and you have the tools to stay on top of your game.

Try, explore, and learn

Standard procedure for learning is usually geared around slide decks and long lectures with the learner (you) stuck in their seat. STARTERS reinvents that tired methodology. We transform the traditional workshop experience into a learning laboratory that will have you engaged and invested from the word go.

If you've ever made a bad decision that cost your company lots of money, or bombed an important meeting, or are all too familiar with analysis paralysis, you need this experience in your back pocket.

The STARTERS learning laboratory offers you an environment where you are set in motion, interacting with ideas and idea-creators, and testing outcomes in a safe place before doing it for real. This is an educational opportunity like none other and the laboratory is on the streets of Detroit.

We got to go out and meet with the movers and shakers in the community and find out how they have done certain things. That has been awesome.
