SSB launches joint online operations with `Your Talent Coach.'
SSB has begun joint operations with Your Talent Coach, to provide online web-based personality evaluations to satisfy various corporate HR requirements including new employee screening, effective Tips for Team Building and Structuring, and overall corporate employee synergistic information to enhance employee productivity, job satisfaction, etc. The site, `Four Strengths,' is being structured to also offer evaluations for individuals seeking coaching and insight into their strengths and suitability for existing or new careers. The evaluations enable a greater understanding of such factors as one's comfort zone under various conditions; how one is likely to react under stress; whether or not one is better suited to work alone or with a team; and more complex issues, such as one's likelihood of prospering better in a highly unstructured environment as an entrepreneur or in a well-defined, secure environment within a large corporation.

SSB Completes Web-Based Train-the-Trainer Curriculum!
SSB has successfully completed their web-based Train-the-Trainer curriculum, developed to satisfy the needs of the Intelligence Community. Historically trainers in the Intelligence Community come from either military training schools or homegrown training efforts. Almost all the Trainers in the Intelligence Community are SMEs, but not all SMEs are trainers. New personnel need training to fill analyst gaps, especially as SIGINT analysts. The first step is to ensure that experienced personnel have the proper skills to be a trainer. Initial use of the SSB Train-the-Trainer curriculum will be to certify their trainers internally; afterwards it will be made available to other organizations within the Intelligence Community needing similar credentialing. With this new curriculum, coupled with SSB's distance learning tool-set, SSB continues to demonstrate the ability to provide the highest level of quality support to meet today's Intelligence Community training requirements.
