MB Holding Group of Companies launch the “MB Leadership Development Program”

The MB Holding Group of Companies recently launched the “MB Leadership Development Program” at the Grand Hyatt Muscat. Attended by the Shareholders and key personnel from the Group, the MB Leadership Development Program highlighted the need to develop existing leaders and nurture emerging business leaders. The cornerstone of MB Group’s growth and success is to have Leaders and Managers who are competent and capable of leading and managing the Group and its various business entities to deliver the company’s long-term business goals and aspirations.

The “MB Leadership Development Program”, is a specially designed development intervention which comprises two unique but inter-related programs i.e. the “Emerging Leaders Program (EmLeP)” and “Experienced Leaders Program (ExLeP)”. Developed in partnership with MEIRC Training and Consulting, Dubai, this program is aimed at the emerging leaders i.e. those individuals who have the potential to assume future leadership and senior management roles in the organization, and who therefore need to be developed and nurtured accordingly. Whilst the second program, is targeted at existing staff currently holding managerial positions at the middle and senior management levels and whose leadership skills need to be further enhanced in order to become more effective leaders.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Dr Mohammed Al Barwani, Chairman, MB Holding Company, says, “Given the diverse, complex and competitive nature of MB’s business coupled with its ambitious expansion plans over the next couple of years, the Group needs Leaders who are adept at dealing with various business issues and challenges, capitalizing the strengths and capabilities of the Group, and turning business threats to opportunities. In addition, the Group requires Leaders, who can help drive the respective businesses to set clear business goals and agenda, inspire, motivate and develop the workforce, help champion and facilitate the various change and business improvement initiatives across the organization. Through this program, we aim to groom future leaders."

The two programs consist of several modules that will run over a period of 12 to 15 months and include topics that cover the range of leadership, management and business ideas and tools required to deal with today’s business challenges. To ensure that the new skills learnt and acquired during the program are applied at the workplace, the participants will be required to undertake a comprehensive project that deals with “real business issues” and that can add value to the Group. This will be done either as an individual or as a team and will address topics such as Profitability, HSE Leadership, Innovation and Creativity, Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development, i.e. key business themes driving the Group and which the participants need to know and understand as current and future leaders.

Mohammed Al Kharusi, Director, Corporate Operations, MB Holding, adds, “I am pleased to say that we have put in place a program that we can all be proud of. As the first session goes underway, I look forward to ensuring the success of these programs. I encourage each one of you to seize and take full advantage of this opportunity. Develop and enhance your knowledge and skills but more importantly ensure that you apply and share what you have learnt at the workplace and help the Group grow and prosper for the betterment of all.”

The first group of participants for the two programs will commence their training in February 2012.
