Mohammad Bin Rashid Programme for Leadership Development designed to enhance adoption of skills and knowledge of participants


Mohammed Bin Rashid Programme for Leadership Development (MBRPLD), an innovative leadership program designed to develop future national leaders capable of promoting the sustainable development of Dubai, has announced that it has recently conducted a seminar designed to assess the development of the 70 participants of the Promising Leaders Program and to consolidate the skills and knowledge that have been imparted in the various program components organised by MBRPLD. 


The two-day activity was held as a follow-up session to 'The Leader in You' workshop organised by MBRPLD to give the participants an opportunity to be engaged in high-level presentations and discussions of concepts that affect individual leadership styles.


"Developing leaders capable of achieving sustainable development in a global city like Dubai can’t be achieved in a short period of time. The Leader in You workshop is built behind this concept, which is why the activities in the workshop are focused on developing specific skills and expertise of the participants. The follow-up session is an excellent way to ensure that the learning process does not end at the conclusion of the workshop. From our experience in handling leadership development programs, participants are better able to absorb the new concepts and ideas presented to them when post-workshop sessions are incorporated into the whole training process," said Adel Al Shared, Director, MBRPLD.


The Leader in You workshop provided tasks to be accomplished by groups, while there were also activities designed for individual participants. Speakers at the workshop offered techniques to help participants raise self-awareness, create personal vision and value system, and establish personal role and goals. There were also discussions on special topics, including "Live by my strength and manage my development areas," and the "Power of Acting Now."


The follow-up activity provided the candidates a suitable venue to improve their learning curve based on the activities and discussions held during the Leader in You workshop. Ultimately, the follow-up session sought to help participants fine tune the knowledge and skills they have learned according to their roles as future leaders of Dubai and the UAE.


The Promising Leaders program is a level of MBRPLD that aims to prepare a vital, elite and strategic professional manpower reserve that is capable of sustaining the leadership requirements of Dubai Government in line with its strategic plan and international and regional aspirations. The program targets UAE nationals in the 22-25 age bracket, who will undergo a 24-month training cycle developed by MBRPLD.
