Doha- Qatar Leadership Centre (QLC) welcomed 122 new participants to its 2017-18 National Leadership Programs during an interactive orientation event. The event set the stage for the Qatari professionals to enter QLC’s Executive, Rising and Government Leaders programs. QLC’s Orientation took place from March 5-7 at the Centre’s Al Bidda Tower headquarters.

At the orientation, new participants were briefed on the yearlong leadership development journey upon which they will soon embark. The event included interactive sessions on program objectives, as well as engaging, team-building exercises. These exercises focused on teamwork, creativity and management skills, and were designed for participants to learn more about QLC’s modules and fellow participants.

At the orientation, the Qatari professionals from across sectors expressed their eagerness to start the curriculum, which includes modules on building effective teams, negotiation skills, and innovation, among others.

During their time at QLC, participants attend a variety of modules and policy seminars held over the course of a year. The participants will learn from influential decision makers through QLC’s Qatar Policy Seminar series, as well as travel internationally on a Learning Journey.

QLC’s world-class modules are offered in collaboration with leading institutions, such as Harvard University, the University of Cambridge Executive Education, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Duke Corporate Education and HEC Paris. The extensive expertise of participants, who hold positions in government, healthcare, finance, education, the military and business, serves as a valuable resource to the entire cohort, and complements the insights conveyed by QLC.

Qatar Leadership Centre is dedicated to developing leaders who advance Qatar’s vision in innovative ways. Its 2016-17 participants will be honored for completing their programs in a ceremony on March 13th. To date, nearly 400 alumni of the Centre’s programs are contributing to Qatar’s development. (QNA)
