Alpha UMi graduated it's the second cohort of certified facilitators this month. Bethany Greenlee, David Bolton, Sue Thomas, and Charlene Einsel join the growing number of highly qualified facilitators specially trained in delivering the 5G 25 core competencies. Included in the graduation was Tarpon Springs Mayor, Chris Alahouzos along with 5G lead facilitator Nate Hatzie. The 5G Power Skills program is comprised of 25 competencies that promote powerful communication skills as well as multi-generational workforce integration that will help organizations flourish and thrive in today's business environment.
Dr. Carrie Root, CEO, and visionary for Alpha UMi proudly cut the grand opening ribbon last Thursday surrounded by family, friends, and dignitaries. Dr. Root and her staff have diligently worked on the 5G™ Power Skills product for almost two years and officially rolled out a 25-competency course workshop for the dimensionally diverse, multi-generational workforce that is sweeping the nation.
Dr. Root, an underwater acoustical engineer by trade, began with a vision of developing a set of skills that will help employers and employees better communicate across the five generation workforce thus providing a more robust bottom line for organizations and increased career sustainability for the individual.
The team at Alpha UMi/5G Matrix wishes everyone a happy, healthful, successful 2017! We are very excited about the initiatives we have in the pipeline for the year. Look for major product and services launches coming in the first quarter and throughout '17.
We all had the opportunity to attend I/ITSEC at the end of 2016. The training and simulation that was on display there was awe-inspiring and thought-provoking. If any of you have the opportunity to walk the I/ITSEC exhibit floor, it is truly amazing. We did things like, fly like a bird in a virtual simulator, fly helicopters, fly jets, shoot home intruders with laser guns, and meet the leaders in modeling, simulation and training. This inspired many ideas for future product development for 5G Matrix.
