The Allgood Vision Builders program has twelve new graduates. The primary goal of this leadership class is for team members to develop and enhance skills to be used in both professional roles and personal lives. Charles Williams did a great job with the first class in 2009 and lead the 2015 class, which kicked off in February. Each of the three day-long meetings had a theme, and this year's sessions included key objectives in the areas of communication, leadership and confidence.
Allgood team members were selected based on individual applications and recommendations by their immediate supervisors. A selection committee thoroughly reviewed each candidate application and extended 12 invitations. The 2015 Vision Builders leadership class graduates include the following individuals:
- Robert Collini - Savannah
- Ashley Crouch - Augusta
- BJ Dixon - Middle GA
- Taylor Freeman - Augusta
- Rodney Hope - South GA
- David Knorr - Savannah
- Jesse Powell - Middle GA
- Amye Roberson - Care Center
- Michael Rozier - Middle GA
- Tanya Whittington - Care Center
- Darin Williams - Savannah
- Shelby Wood - Augusta
"I had the opportunity to sit in during most of the sessions and am truly impressed by the quality of this class. It's great to see the initiative and effort that everyone puts in to make this a personal learning experience," said Bill Ballard, program director.
In addition to the course learnings, team members are encouraged to identify personal goals and their own vision for the future through a unique activity. At the completion of the course, class members write a letter to themselves five years into the future. These letters will be self-addressed, and Charles will mail them out in June of 2020.
Members of the original 2009 Vision Builders class include Bill Ballard, Buddy Mathis, David Robinson and Wendy Williford. This past March, each of them received the 5-year letter addressed to their future selves. "It's good to see that I accomplished the goals and achievements I set in my letter," said recipient David Robinson. He added with a chuckle, "Well, except for that whole weight loss thing."
