HEC Paris, a Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) partner university, has successfully concluded the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) for 23 mid-senior managers and leaders from diverse industries in Oman in association with Takatuf Oman.
The program incorporates Takatufs human capital expertise and HEC Paris internationally acclaimed management programs, to offer a powerful learning experience to emerging leaders.
Featuring three modules and an Action Learning Project, the ELP has been specially designed to improve the leadership competencies as well as develop new competencies for executives, and contribute to the growth and sustainability of an executives company.
While the first module Me as a Leader analyzed leadership behaviors and how to develop them, the second module Me as a Guide scrutinized how teams are managed and integrated to achieve organizational goals. The third module Me as a Builder examined how executives can develop the future of organizations through innovation. It further built on the insights of the previous modules and focused on strategic decision making.
The first two modules of the program took place in September and December 2019, respectively. The third module of the program, revised to accommodate online delivery, featured workshops by prominent HEC Paris professors.
Reiterating the high points of HEC Paris and Takatufs partnership since its inception in 2016, Dean of HEC Paris in Qatar Dr. Pablo Martin de Holan said: "The Emerging Leaders Program is aimed at preparing Omans senior leaders to grow themselves and their organizations. We have witnessed the transformational journey of these participants. Learning is changing and growing, and the participants have grown and are ready to continue their journey as managers and leaders in their organizations and in their lives."
He added: "Designed specially to fulfill specific requirements of executives, HEC Paris custom- designed program has played a major role in the successful implementation of ELP. We are confident that this learning will have a deeply positive impact on Omani society and enable professionals to excel in their respective fields in an ethical and sustainable way."
Highlighting the relations between the two institutions, Garden-Webster said: "At Takatuf, we are proud to partner with HEC Paris in Qatar. Our collaboration on the program design and delivery enables us to provide a world-class learning experience for mid-to-senior level managers. After four years, we are happy to have trained numerous leaders to a range of sectors who are at work building the nation."
HEC Paris custom-designed programs were ranked #2 worldwide by the Financial Times in 2020. They are fully customized leadership development programs that enable participants to reflect upon themselves; their organization; their role within their industry; and the position their company occupies on the national and global stage.
