The Abdulaziz Bin Humaid Leadership Program seeks to empower talented young people of all GCC nationalities with the knowledge and skills they require to take responsibility, drive leadership and lead teams at every level across the region’s public and private sectors.
The Program has been designed to impart the principles of effective strategy and management to students in practice and in theory, as well as to provide essential training around intellectual, emotional and physical wellbeing. Environmental awareness, accountability, and sustainability are part of its core philosophy. The course is paperless, with all material provided electronically, making it a both ‘smart’ and ‘green’, anticipating the needs of the future and equipping its participants to become frontrunners of the digital age and accountable ambassadors of a sustainable future.
The ALP is being personally overseen by Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, who was inspired to establish it the example of his father, His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, and HH Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi the Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council – both of whom have given their patronage to the program.
Over a period of six months encompassing 276 direct learning hours – six hours per day for 5 working days per month – successful delegates will receive in-depth training in key areas of leadership, in a carefully designed program consisting of six distinct modules comprising both class room and experience-based instruction. These will be complemented with special input sessions on emotional intelligence and, to prepare candidates for a rapidly evolving world, the leadership requirements of social media.
The Program stresses inclusivity and welcomes applicants from a wide range of different industries and backgrounds. For the first time this year, eligibility has been expanded to include all GCC nationals. Candidates will be trained by a highly respected team of trainers with many decades of international experience between them.
Evidence from the pilot Program last year underlines the potential of this course to improve leadership qualities: candidates were unanimously satisfied by the use and value of program materials, while a dramatic improvement in their communication and presentation skills as measured.
While this is a tremendous opportunity, it is not for everybody. Acceptance onto the program is highly competitive and those who are admitted will already be showing the seeds of good leadership.
