Heritage University offers leadership training to Valley professionals
Toppenish, WA — A leadership program at Heritage University is giving area professionals a way to enhance their skills without leaving the Yakima Valley. Leading from the Inside Out is an intensive three-day seminar with workshops ranging from ethical leadership to marketing strategies to team building to collaboration.
Event organizer Dr. Cathy Hardison, associate dean of the College of Education and Psychology at Heritage University explains that the event is organized to benefit professionals from a wide array of disciplines.
“Whether you are in business, nonprofit management, healthcare, or education, you need to have the skills necessary to motivate people and build strong teams that are moving toward a common goal,” said Hardison. “Part of the beauty of a seminar like this one, is that it brings together so many people with different backgrounds and perspectives that we can learn so much more from each other.”
The seminar, which takes place August 7-9 on the university’s main campus in Toppenish, includes presentation by leaders in education, business, and politics, including Dr. Johnnie McKinley, author of Planning for Effective & Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning; Dr. Robert Starratt, professor and chair of the Educational Administration and Higher Education Department at Boston College; Micah Cawley, mayor of the City of Yakima; and Karina Gallardo, assistant professor and extensions specialist in the School of Economic Science at Washington State University.
Registration for all three days is $250 or $95 per individual day. For more information or to register, call 509-865-8599, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit heritage.edu/HULeadership2013.
