Harrison College’s Joseph Diaz Discusses Emerging Leaders Certificate

Director of Corporate Learning Operations Talks About New Leadership Certification

Indianapolis, IN, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Harrison College (http://www.harrison.edu/), a private sector college serving more than 4,000 students worldwide, has announced that the college has introduced the Emerging Leaders Certificate, a six-week leadership course that equips high-potential professionals with the leadership competencies needed to be successful and make a difference in the lives of those around them. During a student’s enrollment in the course, they will identify their individual unique talents and abilities and learn how to leverage them in the leadership roles they currently occupy. Students will also learn how to help those around them develop their own leadership roles and competencies. Professionals who complete the Emerging Leaders Certificate course will be prepared and empowered to take control of their own professional and personal growth as well as utilize a host of tips and techniques to ensure long-term success as a leader to better support those around them.

Drawing on the work of Simon T. Bailey, author, professional, motivational speaker and founder of the Brilliance Institute, the Emerging Leaders Certificate serves as a platform for leadership growth and continued success. Based on Bailey’s experience as an executive with the Disney Institute, the course teaches students to recognize, appreciate and utilize their own abilities as they become active leaders in their community as well as in the professional roles that they occupy.

Joseph Diaz, director of corporate learning operations at Harrison College, recently recorded a podcast discussing the college’s Emerging Leaders Certificate program, providing listeners with program details and touting the benefits of this model for prospective students, employers and businesses. The podcast is available to download at http://bit.ly/15uwoda. For more information on the Emerging Leaders Certificate, visit http://www.harrison.edu/leadership.

“In this day and age, leadership requires professionals to recognize their own talents and collaborate successfully in a team environment,” said Diaz. “Harrison College’s Emerging Leaders Certificate, in partnership with Simon T. Bailey, has been specially developed to help individuals recognize their own talents and leadership abilities as well as provide them with the necessary skills to empower those around them. This course identifies the critical drivers for success and is a tremendous benefit for professionals that are interested in growing both personally and professionally in a way that effectively meets the time-challenged needs of today’s demanding schedules.”

“To see long-term growth and continued success in today’s professional world, one needs to have an outstanding skill set of leadership abilities and talents,” said Neil Stanley, regional president of corporate partnerships at Harrison College. “We are excited to partner with Simon T. Bailey, as he has worked tirelessly to identify important leadership competencies that produce measureable results for leaders across various organizations and industries. Together this partnership will develop and inspire the future generation of leaders.”
