Everyone is creative. Everyone has unique strengths. Everyone has the potential to lead.
Sometimes you just need a push…
…Outside your comfort zone.
Follow the Fear designs custom learning experiences that focus on building creative leadership skills for work and life. See below for examples.
We combine play and expert facilitation using methods and tools inspired by comedy and improv theater, digital innovation processes, and human-centered design. Find out more about our process here.
“Follow the fear” is a philosophy that means to move towards the experiences that scare you. Only when you wave goodbye to your comfort zone can you begin to learn and grow.
