Not only did John enlighten us as to the meaning of our assessments, but he also taught us how to capitalize on them through the power of being ‘pointy.’ A completely unique use of these tools.”

— Garret Harrell – Marine Raider

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA, US, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is a good reason that "Putting Traditional Leadership in the Crosshairs" is in the title of this book. Look no further than the good and poor examples of situational leadership on display on a daily basis. For organizations to be successful in our new reality they will need agile, resilient leadership based on a proven system. This book is built on the foundation found in place onboard the most sophisticated vessel ever designed to operate in the universe. It operates in the unforgiving, dangerous world beneath our oceans. Perhaps most astonishing is it is operated by a crew with an average age of 22, 80% of which have no more than a high school diploma. Due to agile, resilient leadership there has never been a nuclear accident on board these nuclear-powered submarines. The world will benefit from these universal truths. The Submarine Way works and this new book with helping everyone who reads it drive more effective inclusive leadership.

Most leadership books are long on theory and very very short on solutions, specific tools to drive more effective results. We do not take the easy road in UP PERISCOPE. The co-authors blend their expertise gained from senior leadership in Fortune 300 companies with that gained from being The Gallup Organizations top client rated consultant in the world to bring a dose of reality to developing leaders effectively.

This new book not only builds on their first bestseller, Diversity and Inclusion The Submarine Way with submarine stories around leadership secrets surfaced from this secret world. It goes further into the elements of their patent published leadership development through the inclusion system and specific actions they have helped their clients implement, leading to significant, measurable results.

This new book is about reality, not hype. Below is taken directly from a chapter in UP PERISCOPE, Putting Traditional Leadership in the Crosshairs to demonstrate just one of the numerous, contrarian but highly effective leadership development approaches that will absolutely drive more agile, resilient leaders.

Caring Leaders Do Not Take Care of People

Yes, you heard me right. People who are taken care of do not learn to make independent decisions, or how to handle issues in a crisis and they don’t teach others how to develop people to make good decisions or operate independently. Excellent leaders understand they are responsible for an outcome. They understand others are accountable for the outcome as well, but they teach others to get the job done and to get it done right. Five things a leader can do to teach a person to fish, so they can eat for the rest of their life:

1. Roles and jobs should have talent considerations. Individuals should be placed in jobs where their talents and strengths can contribute.

2. Mistakes happen. We all learn from our mistakes as well as our successes. If individuals do not feel safe to make mistakes, they will not innovate.

3. Give individuals latitude to achieve the mission. If there is no latitude, be honest.

4. Allow individuals access to you to ask questions. Avoid taking over the project. Coach them to a good decision.

5. Make sure there are good plans behind important initiatives, including those that involve developing people.

Authentic caring is demonstrated through genuine relationships with the people the leader interfaces with and leads. These relationships have integrity at the root and are built on an ethical foundation. More to follow on the importance of integrity in leading others. The same with strengths. A good leader knows his/her strengths and looks to maximize these with those they lead. They also look to their people to fill in the gaps created by their lack of expertise in an area.

For more than a decade The Submarine Way has been guiding and partnering with organizations of all types and sizes to drive leadership through our patent published lens of inclusion. Our goal is simple, change our workplaces, communities, and schools forever. We have a better way, we know a better way and we have the results and the patent to back up its unique and powerful approach. Let's get a copy of this new book in everyone's hands.

Through the lens of an expert: Aspire’s VP briefs the latest test automation trends and best practices in the industry

Janaki Jayachandran, Vice President – Testing, Aspire Systems

An interview featuring our top testing expert, Janaki Jayachandran for the best insights on testing trends, updates, and many more.

OAK BROOK, ILLINOIS, US, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The virus outbreak has a tremendous impact on the businesses across almost every industry. Organizations are looking forward to solutions that can both help themselves run their business and support their end-users in this adverse situation. Even the well-established organizations across the globe are struggling to manage and operate their business seamlessly.

This interview by News Desk will help business leaders to get an idea of the ways in which they can resume their business in the most efficient and cost-effective ways. The interview was conducted by Jennifer Bonine (CEO AND Founder, PinkLion) featuring our top testing expert, Janaki Jayachandran, (VP-Testing, Aspire Systems) for STAR EAST 2020 to get a brief on the various testing challenges faced widely, the best ways to address those challenges, the impact of AI/ML to improve the test automation process, and many more useful thoughts.

1. What are the most common challenges that customers are experiencing in dealing with modern-day applications?

To date, Aspire has worked with more than 1000 customers over the last 20 + years. We could clearly see the shift in the industry towards the software engineering approach, which poses multiple challenges for testing.

 Test Automation in an Agile based testing with CI/CD: Sprints in agile usually have a focus on building the features right and many a time the requirements evolve through the sprint cycle. Hence, implementing test automation is quite challenging.

 Multi-Layered Architecture: With the likes of Microservices architecture, today’s applications have multiple layers (UI, API, Mobile, etc.). Therefore, it’s not sufficient to automate just the UI alone. All the layers have to be covered in order to ensure a high-quality application.

 Testing on a wide range of Mobile devices; Faster turnaround time: Applications are expected to be accessible over mobile. In certain cases, the number of mobile devices to be supported could be quite high. This coupled with the short time frame given for testing poses a huge challenge.

 Non-Functional Testing covering Performance and Security: In today’s demanding market it’s not just enough to have the best of features in the application but reliability and availability of the application also play a major role in customer success. Therefore, it’s imperative to cover the non-functional testing as part of the test strategy to stay ahead in the market.

 Diversified Tools & Frameworks to cover all the layers: To solve the above challenges many time customers end up using half a dozen tools & frameworks, which results in an operational & maintenance nightmare. Integrating the tools and consolidating the siloed reports is by itself will turn out to be a mini-project.

2. What are the innovations that Aspire is providing to help solve customer challenges?

Hyper-Testing is Aspire’s unique methodology for Testing. Hyper-Testing is an agile and unified approach towards designing and executing a test strategy that covers end to end testing of all application layers (Functional, UI, API, Mobile, etc.) as well as non-functional requirements (security, performance, load, availability, etc.) by leveraging the best of breed tools (cloud, open-source, etc.), resulting in lower TCO and Higher ROI.

To enable Hyper-Testing we have a fully integrated and seamless framework called AFTA. AFTA covers end-end testing needs covering both functional and non-functional with support for a complete CI/CD integration. This drastically reduces the complexity for customers from switching between multiple tools and reports.

Testing on the cloud – We have designed our testing methodology to operate 100% on the cloud. This allows us to meet on-demand requirements and also significantly cut down the infrastructure cost for our customers. Thousands of browsers and mobile devices can be tested instantly at a fraction of cost.
Our recent innovation is a Robotic Arm to especially help Retail customers in performing automated testing for POS Terminals. Robotic Arm is designed to perform testing for card-based transactions including swipe, chip insert, and tap mode payments. Automating these operations saves a lot of manual effort and completely eliminates human errors.

3. What do you think of AI/ML's impact on Test Automation?

It’s given that AI/ML is absolutely going to play a vital role in almost all the fields. Test Automation will also stand to gain a lot from AI/ML. In fact at Aspire, last year we released the latest version of AFTA 3.0, and the primary focus of this release is to enable AFTA with a set of AI/ML features that make this framework much powerful. We feel the 2 main areas to be focused for AI/ML implementation are – Productivity and Accuracy of testing.

For example, we have built capabilities that can drastically reduce false positives in automation results thereby increasing the accuracy of test results. Similarly, we have built capabilities to cut down significant manual efforts towards activities like script maintenance, issue verification, and categorization, etc. We are seeing that these sets of AI/ML features are resulting in an almost 30%-50% increase in productivity of teams, which transforms to cost savings for our customers.

4. Do you foresee any specific areas in testing to get more attention in the near future?

While end-end testing is important to produce high-quality software, we find that Performance engineering will play an extremely important role in the overall success of the companies. Particularly with the current COVID situation, there is a general increase in the load of the systems as more and more people are switching to online. A good example would be one of our US customers from the education industry has experienced 10X times more load than what they typically receive. It’s primarily because of current lockdown in the US leading to more activities happening over online from homes. We worked along with the customer to plan the load and performance testing on time to get the system fully ready to service the multi-fold increase in load.

We strongly feel different segments will go through varying degrees of increase in load but the key is to be prepared to handle it successfully.

Tips to increase productivity while testing from anywhere

Steven Odzer Shares the Meaning of Having a Large Family

Steven Odzer Henderson

HENDERSON, NV, UNITED STATES, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — While he is a successful businessman, a supporter of the Republican Jewish Coalition, and a member of Economic Club, Steven Odzer is a family man foremost. “I have seven kids, and I will soon welcome my tenth grandchild,” he says with a smile. Creating a legacy for his family is one of the things that keeps him going. At the end of a long day, Steven Odzer likes to come home to his wife and his younger children who still live at home. He learned everything he knows about the value of family from his father, Seymour Odzer. Steven Odzer hopes to create a legacy similar to the one his father left behind. “My father taught me to surround myself with important people,” Steven said.

Not only is Steven Odzer proud of his immediate family, but he’s also extremely close to his extended family. “I have many family members living in Israel,” Steven says. The entire family likes to stay in touch. This past October 14th, the family honored his cousin Nachston Wachsman on the 25th anniversary of his kidnap and murder. In 1994, at the age of 19, the military instructed him to attend a one-day training in northern Israel when he was on leave. His family expected him home on Sunday night, October 9th, 1994, but sadly he never made it back. The memorial of Nachshon Wachsman on his 25th death anniversary, while sad, made everyone appreciate the importance of family. Businesses and money come and go, but for Steven Odzer, his family is what’s important.

With over 30 years of experience in the distribution industry, Steven Odzer has achieved a lot in his life. He is currently the CEO of the new YBT Industries of Henderson, NV. Steven Odzer attended Yeshiva of Flatbush High School and then to the Brooklyn College Scholars program. At the age of 18, when he started his first company out of his parent’s basement, he sold napkins, paper cups, and plates door to door in his neighborhood of Flatbush. All his accomplishments in the industry earned Steven the title of Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2000 in the area of distribution.

When Steven Odzer is not taking care of his family, he likes to support other worthy causes. He is a big supporter of Jewish and non-Jewish causes, the Arab-Jewish business cooperation.

This carefully selected set of videos is designed to help Primary Care Providers, Counselors and other healthcare organizations to access high-end content at a reasonable price vs having to pay for original productions,” said Robyn Hussa Farrell, CEO and co-Founder of Sharpen. “The uniqueness of the material we offer ranges from the topics addressed, to the voices from which the stories are told, and the diversity of perspectives shared on the various topics.”

The Sharpen Video Library content includes:
– Evidenced-based research that is reviewed by medical professionals
– Specific branding and customization for your organization
– Multilingual video options with native-language speakers
– New, relevant videos added regularly to the collection

Sharpen offers two simple options for acquiring content:

Community Partnership: A turn-key solution where Sharpen manages the entire program. Subscribers have access to the full Video Library of more than 100 videos. As new developments and productions are updated, they are immediately available to your audience for streaming.

Personal Library: A monthly plan designed for individual consumers to actively care for the personal health of themselves and their families. This option offers a choice of 10 educational health videos per month. This plan is best for building a personal library that allows you to tailor the collection to your specific needs.

Sharpen partners with healthcare organizations and providers, health-information websites/apps, pharmaceutical companies, and other health publishers to distribute quality content. Sharpen Productions offers original production services to corporations.

Joanne L. Barian of Inner Soul Healing & Recovery Solutions to be Featured on Close Up Radio

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Therapy means healing. If you want to change your life from depression, anxiety or addiction, you must heal the soul.

Joanne L. Barian is a holistic psychotherapist, addiction specialist, inspirational life coach, and the founder of Inner Soul Healing and Recovery Solutions, where she specializes in helping individuals and families survive and overcome mental health issues and substance abuse.

“So many of us want to change our behavior, but all of our internal dialogue is negative,” says Joanne. “Inner soul healing is healing from the inside out. Today is the day to release what no longer serves us. It’s never too late to be what you were meant to become.”

Joanne’s therapeutic approach is holistically based, addressing the mind, body, spirit and emotions of the whole person. Through her expertise in Holistic Psychotherapy, Family Intervention, Addiction Counseling, Health & Wellness Consulting, and Holistic & Intuitive Life Coaching, offers clients a path toward spiritual awakening.

“I try to be someone who looks at the world with a fresh perspective,” says Joanne. “I'm on a vision quest to find approaches that are unique and different from what other therapists do. All of who I am goes into everything I do. My passion is what drives me. And when you talk to me, hopefully that comes through loud and clear.”

Joanne had been an elite tennis player when she suffered a devastating knee injury. Following her surgery, she began suffering from debilitating migraine headaches. Her doctor prescribed barbiturates for her pain, which worked for a while, until she developed a dependency.

“I didn't really think of myself as a person that had a problem,” recalls Joanne. “I just didn't want to believe that this could be me. I still identified as a person who always excelled in life. It's only by the grace of God that nothing that bad ever happened to me.”

When you have an addictive personality, says Joanne, you’re never satisfied. There's always something outside of yourself you're searching for that you never quite reach.

“All the things that I was doing as a therapist. I was now on the other side, and I was a tough patient,” recalls Joanne. “The experience reinforced what I already was doing, but it gave me a new spiritual perspective on life and on what I do with my talents. That's what separates me: I’ve earned the respect the people I work with because I'm a recovering addict as well.”

Joanne says the key to her success is facilitating a different perspective through new language.

“What I do is I help them change their language to change their thought process,” says Joanne. “Instead of right and wrong, I look at what's working and what isn't working. It's a way of empowering a person to know that they can do this. Many times the answers are inside us. We have that strength already. We just need to tap into it.”

Close Up Radio will feature Joanne L. Barian in an interview with Jim Masters on May 27th at 12pm EDT.
