Emirates NBD completes new Harvard training
Dubai, December 30, 2012
Emirates NBD recently celebrated the successful completion of a new batch of the Managerial Leadership Programme (MLP) which was delivered in collaboration with Harvard Business Publishing (HBP)
The programme is based on HBP’s world-renowned design principles such as participant centered learning, learning by doing and learning from others, a statement from the bank said.
MLP was designed with the intent of developing managers’ leadership capabilities to analyse a business model and build a business plan aligned to the unit strategy while providing direction and motivation to the team to deliver performance.
Participants received certificates during a ceremony held at the bank’s headquarters which was attended by Rick Pudner - group CEO, members of the executive committee, senior managers and dignitaries from HBP.
The programme broadly covered three major modules, with ‘leadership’ as the theme - personal leadership, team leadership and execution leadership. Participants went through a comprehensive blended learning experience from September to December, which included workshops, webinars and online learning with great emphasis on peer-to-peer learning through case discussions facilitated by expert moderators, the statement said.
Husam Al Sayed, general manager, human resources, said: “At Emirates NBD, we believe that development of our people must be a management priority and such leadership development programmes are designed to facilitate career transitions of leaders at different levels.”
“Harvard Business Publishing is extremely pleased with the partnership that we have with Emirates NBD to develop the bank’s leadership pipeline. The Managerial Leadership Programme is one of the most intensive leadership development programmes in the region,” said Vinay Hebbar, managing director of HBP India.
“This programme was designed to ensure the transformation of selected participants into outstanding leaders by impacting not just leadership skills but also leadership mindset. We appreciate Emirates NBD’s commitment towards developing its leaders which was apparent from the level of senior leadership involvement that this programme got.”
The Managerial Leadership Programme is yet another illustration of Emirates NBD’s commitment towards providing its employees with opportunities to further enhance their capabilities, which will in turn demonstrate real-time applicability, the statement said.
The group provides several training programmes, which have been developed to suit the varying competencies and qualifications of it staff. Emirates NBD has set up these programmes in partnership with a number of educational and training institutions. – TradeArabia News Service
