SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Academy Leadership, an elite leadership training firm founded in 2000 by service academy graduates, brings its concentrated, three-day Leadership Excellence Course to Salt Lake City September 30th through October 2nd. Academy Leadership affiliates Steve Alltop and Bob Mason will facilitate the event.
Leadership training for Salt Lake City managers and executives
Designed for leaders at all levels, the Salt Lake City Leadership Excellence Course establishes each participant's Leadership Profile -- identifying personal leadership style and philosophy, and honing the ability to communicate them to team members. Three months of coaching sessions are included in the course fee so attendees continue to receive practical advice and reinforcement of key learnings.
Drawing on leadership training instilled at America's service academies
Academy Leadership uses a unique leadership development process based on principles used by West Point, the Naval Academy, and the U. S. Air Force Academy for instilling leadership, strategy and discipline. These strategies underpin today's successful corporate leadership philosophies to create leadership training programs guaranteed to give measureable results.
Course attendee Mike Hobson speaks frankly about his experience
Course participant Mike Hobson, Project Manager with NextGear Capital, explained, "I've taken several others, but Academy Leadership's course was by far the most valuable – and I've become a more effective team leader because of it. During the course I developed my own leadership philosophy, defined my team goals, and learned how to communicate that to my team. I found the follow up sessions after the course with instructor Steve Alltop were really invaluable, and something I'd never experienced in any other course. I was able to talk through and apply what I'd learned in day-to-day work situations or challenges, and it has really helped continue the leadership style I've developed."
Course graduates qualify for continuing education credits
The Leadership Excellence course qualifies attendees for 36 PDUs from the Project Management Institute, 21 recertification credits from the Human Resources Certification Institute, and 36 CPE credits from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.
Only 30 seats are available. The cost is $2,950 per person, with a special $300 per person discount available for groups of 3 or more. More information and registration is available at http://www.academy-leaders.com/salt-lake.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
