Qatar Exchange (QE), in collaboration with British Teamwork International, a leading provider of specialised training services, has completed an integrated training programme on leadership development and strategic planning as part of enhancing its corporate performance.
The training, which conformed to the highest international standards in the development of executive leaders, targeted senior directors and department heads in line with the strategy of the bourse to develop the capabilities and skills of its employees.
It included intense theoretical and practical sessions and the participating candidates received an accredited certificate at the conclusion of the year-long training programme.
“We are trying to continue the efforts toward achieving progress and growth, putting the future in mind, and relying on a set of pillars based on the best practices in the global capital markets, with a focus on sustainable growth,” QE CEO Rashid bin Ali al-Mansoori said.
“What distinguishes the stock market at this stage is its interest in development, training and awareness campaigns targeting investors and all segments of society on the one hand and the staff and department leaders of the stock exchange on the other,” he said.
The programme aimed at enabling the department directors to master the skills required in developing teamwork and administrative proficiency, he said, adding the interactive method used by trainers was distinct because it was focused on giving the trainee the tools necessary to change concepts and enhance communication with others.
Dr Tom Flatau, managing director and principal trainer from Teamwork International, said the focus was on the development of leadership and management skills for department managers in the stock market.
He stressed that those skills will play an important role in ensuring the success of the company through effective implementation of strategies and future plans.
Terming that the key to successfully managing change begins with having effective leaders who are able to take the organisation forward in a rapidly changing world, he said: “the aim of the training course was to equip participating managers with the knowledge and skills of effective management and leadership in order to strengthen their capabilities and provide them with the ability to deal with all cases which require effective leadership.”
Flatau dealt with various topics including an evaluation of the organisation’s leadership, effective management and leadership skills, leadership and training strategies, effective communication and negotiation skills, conflict resolution and personnel evaluation and innovation, problem solving, decision-making and building high performance teams.
