The objective of this program is to assist in the development of the next generation of HARDI executives through access to learning and networking platforms. With these platforms, Emerging Leaders can solidly develop core skills, expand networking options, associate with industry leadership, and expand their business horizons.
WHO IS AN EMERGING LEADER
An Emerging Leader is any employee of a distributor or supplier member who has been recognized as having the talent and potential to someday advance to the executive level of the organization.
Sometimes, as in the cases of family-owned companies, this is the next generation owner. Other times this is an unrelated (but still high-potential) individual who is on the way to the top.
The Emerging Leaders meet twice a year to fine-tune and develop their executive skill sets, take part in mentoring discussions and network with other future industry leaders. There is also the option to take part in a fully integrated development track, complete with graduation from the Emerging Leaders program.
