MB Holding Group concludes the Leadership Development Programme
The first batches of graduates of the MB Leadership Development Programme were recently felicitated at the Intercontinental hotel, Muscat.
The ‘MB Leadership Development Programme’, is a specially designed development intervention which comprised two unique but inter-related programmes i.e. the ‘Emerging Leaders Programme (EmLeP)’ and ‘Experienced Leaders Programme (ExLeP)’. Developed in partnership with MEIRC Training and Consulting, Dubai, the first programme was aimed at emerging leaders i.e. those individuals who have the potential to assume future leadership and senior management roles in the organization, and who therefore needed to be developed and nurtured accordingly. Whilst the second programme, was targeted at existing staff currently holding managerial positions at the middle and senior management levels and whose leadership skills need to be further enhanced in order to become more effective leaders.
Dr Mohammed Al Barwani, Chairman, MB Holding Company, said, “Given the technical, diverse, complex and international nature of MB Group’s business coupled with its ambitious expansion plans, the Group requires Leaders who are technic ally sound and can compete internationally.”
Said Al Jabri, Group HR & Planning Manager, MB Holding Company said, “We are happy with the way the programme has been conducted. The two programmes comprised topics such as Managerial Leadership & Emotional Intelligence, The Art of Strategic Planning & Strategic Management, Team Building, Conflict Resolution, Productive Performance Appraisals, Coaching & Counseling Employees, and other business ideas and tools required to deal with today’s business challenges. The interactive sessions coupled with an innovative teaching approach by MEIRC made this a memorable experience for all the participants.”
About 60 employees undertook the Leadership Development Programme which was conducted over a period of 12-15 months. The Emerging Leaders Group underwent 7 modules while the Experienced Leaders Group undertook 6. Each of the modules was identified to address specific business related topics.
