In 1929, the Stephen’s family had a dream to open a school in the San Francisco, California area. They had succeeded, and made an Academy called the Academy of Arts, and it was named such until Richard S. Stephen’s stepped down, and handed the school over to his son Dr. Richard A. Stephens who added bachelor’s and Undergraduate programs to the Academy, and they became Academy of Art College. With the new programs added, enrollment soared above 5,000 and to this day it’s still one of the few Colleges in the United Stated to be privately owned. Then in 2004 The granddaughter of the founder Richard S. Stephens, Dr. Elisa Stephens took over the college, and under her guidance, they became the Academy of Art University. On top of the school being privately owned by the same family for over 90 years, the entire family are art lovers who are involved in the art community.
The video created by Sam Bear shows a day-in-the-life of a university student who is taking classes at the Academy of Art University. It shows him getting up at 9 a.m., then he tours the city of beautiful San Francisco, California, and progresses as he gets a free ride to the college by flashing his school ID. Then he starts classes at 11 a.m., then takes a break and hang out with his friends for a few hours before taking his afternoon class. Yes, only two classes at the university because they want to focus on the experience of college, and they want students to have all their focus on classes and projects. It then shows him hanging out with his friends again, and then back to the dorm to crash out by 11 p.m. This video is something that every college should do. This is a more accurate description of life on campus that a simple tour of the school.
Betterworks comments that how employees are managed will set the course for success in organizations. Managers need to feel that talent management supports the development of the workforce team and also supports the managers themselves. In order for this to be the case, HR needs to give managers training and tools so they can be effective by setting up avenues of feedback and helping in the development of team members so that individual and team goals are clear. Research shows that coaching for management is sorely lacking in most companies. Many managers feel that their performance processes are outdated and less of a help than a hindrance.

Prior to beginning his career in the technology industry, Robert first attended college at Purdue University. While attending Purdue, he would play football on a full scholarship. This allowed him to study organizational leadership while participating in football. After he completed his degree program, Robert would get drafted to play in the NFL. For two seasons, Deignan would play for a couple of teams. In 1997 he would play for the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets in 1998. Shortly after playing football, Robert would then pursue his entrepreneurial career. One of his first ventures was Fanlink Inc. This company would help give him the initial experience necessary to build on his entrepreneurial ventures in the future.
After running his first company Fanlink Inc, Robert would look to get involved in the tech industry. What helped him come up with the idea for a business in the technology sector was his previous work experience at a company that offered anti malware software. While working at this company, he would find out that his employer had problems getting software installed on a user’s computer. As it turned out, malware was able to block the installation of the software on a machine. Therefore, Robert and his company looked for a solution. This solution was having customers contact them remotely and talk about their issues. The company would then look to address the problems from a remote source. Using a remote source to eliminate the malware worked. As a result, Robert came up with the idea of using remote digital services to help consumers address any technological problems they encountered.
