Providing Leadership Development Program to Vi Promoters

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking Vi leadership into the future, ViSalus officially announced today a strategic partnership with renowned leadership expert, speaker and best-selling author, John C. Maxwell. As a global initiative, Maxwell will collaborate with the ViSalus Founders to provide Vi Promoters with an indispensable resource known as the Leadership & Influence Development (LID) program. Along with this program, Maxwell will further build the company's leadership vision as the keynote speaker at Vitality, ViSalus' global celebration, taking place September 12-13 in Houston, Texas.

Maxwell has trained more than 5 million leaders worldwide, written more than 60 books, and is ranked #1 in Inc. Magazine's Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts. He brings a bank of knowledge and expertise to a company with a strong history of breaking boundaries. "A leader who produces other leaders multiplies their influences," stated Maxwell.

"My Co-Founders and I have benefited tremendously by working with such an internationally recognized leadership expert," said Ryan Blair, ViSalus Co-Founder and CEO. "Integrating this leadership program into our community of Promoters taps into a model of mentorship designed for success. It furthers our investment in the Vi-Life as we work to improve life, health and prosperity around the world."

"I have had the opportunity to mentor ViSalus' three Founders who each have unparalleled creativity, intelligence and leadership potential," said Maxwell on collaborating with Blair, Mallen and Sarnicola. "It's been a real joy to be able to pour my life into the Vi Founders who I often affectionately refer to as the Three Musketeers."

"LID and Vitality are amazing opportunities to highlight Vi's direction and keep our dedication to Challenging the World innovative, forward-thinking and unstoppable," said Blair. "John C. Maxwell said, 'A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,' and at ViSalus, our leaders are doing just that!"

The LID program kicked off with the first of three annual meetings in Atlanta this June, bringing together top ViSalus leaders to form an exclusive group. The members of this Founders' LID Group have earned the opportunity to work directly with Maxwell and the ViSalus Founders over a 12 month period. LID teaches Promoters specific leadership skills that they can use to not only raise their own leadership "lid," but duplicate that success throughout their teams.

Vitality 2014 (Houston, we have a solution!) will see thousands of Vi Customers and Promoters from all over the world come together to discover where ViSalus is headed next. ViSalus Co-Founder and CMO Blake Mallen will cover cutting-edge technology revolutionizing the PROJECT 10 Challenge, while ViSalus Co-Founder and Global Ambassador Nick Sarnicola will discuss promotional strategy and entrepreneurship. In addition, Maxwell will address the entire Vi Community, inspiring thousands while highlighting the ViSalus Founders' vision for the future.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
