His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has called on executives to join the 'Impactful Leaders Programme' at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development (MBRCLD).
"We seek new competencies, fresh blood with the passion to serve our nation," Sheikh Mohammed tweeted on Saturday, sharing a video that highlighted some of the achievements of the MBRCLD programme.
More than 600 executives in various leadership roles across the UAE have graduated from the course, including nine ministers, 35 directors general and executives, and 16 prominent figures in several sectors.
Under the title 'Become an Elite', the video included an invitation for influential leaders to enrol in the third edition of the MBRCLD programme and become part of a development journey that seeks to empower new leaders.
The MBRCLD was set up in 2003 with the intent of "creating leaders for tomorrow".
Today, the centre has been seeing the success of the development programmes through the achievements of Emirati leaders in senior positions both in federal and local agencies.
The Impactful Leaders programme was designed in collaboration with three international universities - UC Berkeley, the International Institute for Management Development in Switzerland, and Imperial College London - incorporating global trends in leadership development.
It covers educational training trips outside the UAE, which will allow participants to learn about the most relevant global trends within the scope of the UAE's priority sectors.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Leadership Framework aims to develop eight key competencies: diversity and engagement, strategic prospecting, global citizenship, progressive thinking, passion and commitment, value creation, Human first, and curiosity and flexibility.
The framework also seeks to develop the competencies and abilities of young Emirati leaders in the fields of creative thinking, developing their abilities and skills to keep pace with the latest developments. The framework is based on learning through live experiences, which reflect the realities and the challenges of our time.
The Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development will use this framework to create a comprehensive learning process centred around the concept of learning through experience and application, as well as of learning from peers and senior leaders in state institutions.
