New Strides in Education  By: XGN StilleJager 

author image by Jessi XGN | Community | 0 Comments | 21 May 2017

Those that have been around the block long enough to see the growth and development of education in XGN have seen the rise and fall of every regime imaginable. From the heads of InnerKitty, to Gaara, to DowninKoffee; plans have been written and trashed all in the same night or implemented to be changed weeks or months later. More susceptible to change than the  shifting sands, what is truly in plan for the education department? What are its origins? What  direction will it take? This writer had the pleasure of interviewing XGN HELL5FURY 7 to get his input as the  Head of the Leadership Development Program. HELL5FURY gets his start from Panther, DoD;  “Changed my gamertag as I was being recruited and became a Sergeant,” he stated proudly,  “when I became an officer at the rank of Lieutenant I inquired when we were doing the  Advanced Officer Training (AoT) Certifications done by XGN Busywinner 7.” Starting in DoD, the  AoT Certification classes, among many others across other divisions, became the start of the  new education system we see today. The very same tests we use now are based upon those  from the original AoT.  Knowledge, as we know is power. Education is merely the spreading of knowledge as we  know it. In his own words, HELL5FURY states, “It’s everything. It’s the bloodline…people that are  educated and understand the outline, operating procedures, how the community is set up to  run and maintain itself, and how each part of it works is vital. The more information you know,  the better leader you’ll be…[if] you hesitate because you don’t know for sure what you’re doing,  you make mistakes.”  With the latest changes in place, much of the information that is going out to all ranks from Master Sergeant to General is being standardized and put in plain terms that anyone can understand that is readily accessible and updated on a regular basis. This puts power directly into the members’ hands to truly see that, not only are they being asked to look  for the information themselves, but it’s being presented in such a way that they, themselves,  can easily reach and tap into the bottomless well of their own potential. Before these most recent changes, HELL5FURY states, “…The knowledge base was uneven; it wasn’t spread across  the community. One division would know some policies, another division would be doing  something completely opposite…[we’re] upgrading and updating the new times and new  members to what the community is now.”  So, what are these changes? There are workshops posted by HELL5FURY and written by  XGN StilleJager on diverse topics from Security Risks to, upcoming, How to Create Officers.  These workshops are geared toward giving new and existing Officers an outline of workshops  that can be held or the knowledge needed to create their own and have, truly, a limitless  potential to the apt mind. Likewise, in the words of HELL5FURY, “The most significant thing we had to put in place would be the standardized testing across the board.” With the new tests available to Division Leaders’ GDrives, the information needed to become an officer at any level has never been on a more even keel. HELL5FURY’s Hell’s Korner has had boundless success even  beyond his own expectations. “Hell’s Korner was just a brief starting point…to see the success it  would have or wouldn’t as far as participation and interacting in the meetings to see how things …
