Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
Eric Philippou, intern at Metcalf & Associates and student at The Ohio State University, has been writing a blog series over the summer applying the Innovative Leadership Workbook materials to his development as a college student preparing for employment after college graduation. By following Eric’s path, students and others seeking employment can build toward personal success.
Eric’s blogs are based on an International Book Award winning series focusing on building innovative leadership. The series of books is for those at all levels within organizations and provides a practical approach to develop leadership potential in order to keep pace with the dynamic environment of today's world. Workbooks are tailored to leaders ranging from emerging through global leadership ranks. Eric’s work is based on the upcoming book Innovative Leadership Workbook for College Students.
Metcalf & Associates’ blog series provides examples of how college students can use this material to identify their vision and values and prepare for a career that allows them to build on their strengths, and live according to that vision and values. The story of Eric is a three-month series starting with the post “Meet Eric, Student Blog Series – Defining Your Vision” in which he talks about his experience using the Workbook to plan his professional career and life. Eric shares key elements of his overall exploration as he identifies his career aspirations and develops a plan to prepare for a highly successful career. He began this process at the beginning of the summer and will wrap up near the beginning of the school year as he assesses his strengths and creates a plan to accomplish his goals and position himself for long-term career success.
The workbooks and online programs on which Eric’s process is based provide a six-step process for developing innovative leadership qualities through a combination of well-researched theory, two practical business case studies, and corresponding tools and templates. The first two chapters of the Innovative Leadership Workbook for Emerging Leaders are available for download at http://www.innovativeleadershipfieldbook.com. In addition, the first eleven weeks for the online program are delivered at no cost.
