HarperCollins is launching HarperCollins Leadership, an imprint providing "integrated, values-based material," on October 10.
The imprint will publish and produce content "designed for individuals looking for inspiration, insight and tools to help activate their inherent leadership potential," according to the company, which noted that in addition to traditional book publishing, the imprint "will focus on creating materials that can be consumed efficiently and concurrently in a variety of formats." Each book will be accompanied by a set of ancillary content, including online learning tools such as video courses, blogs, podcasts and digital apps.
"We are thrilled about this new opportunity to come alongside emerging leaders, both in businesses and communities, providing a versatile platform to communicate their messages in creative and effective formats," said Brian Hampton, senior v-p and publisher of HCL. "Working with authors who are passionate about empowering their professional communities is exciting, and we are eager to provide essential resources to help cultivate a new generation of leaders with this innovative publishing venture."
Jeff James, v-p of marketing for HCL, added: "Our goal is to make growth possible by offering leadership development content that is accessible and effective, whether you're driving to the office, sitting at a coffee shop, or picking the kids up from school. We believe personal and professional growth shouldn't be limited to traditional avenues or prohibited by a demanding schedule."
HCL will launch with the October 10 release of Building a StoryBrand: Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen by Donald Miller, followed, on January 16, by John C. Maxwell's Developing the Leader Within You 2.0.
