Participants of Abdulaziz Bin Humaid Leadership Program visits Ajman Museum
Ajman, UAE (October 14, 2015) – Participants of the 3rd Abdulaziz Bin Humaid Leadership Program visited the Ajman Museum to discover the history of the emirate as part of the six-month program to prepare them as new successful leaders of the future.
In coordination with Ajman Tourism Development Department, the 20 candidates hailing from across the GCC toured the museum, one of the most visited historical attractions in the emirate, where they witnessed the recreation of traditional wells, irrigation systems and the wooden dhows that Ajman was once famous for.
The visit was part of the Abdulaziz Bin Humaid Leadership Program, a first-of-its-kind program that aims to empower talented individuals with essential leadership qualities. Through the program, talented and determined young men and women will be given a unique chance to learn new skills, broaden their horizons and step up to become the new successful leaders of the future.
Now on its third year, candidates to the program have been selected from all GCC nationals between 25 and 35 years of age. The successful candidates were invited to sit for the psychometric test, followed by personal interview process. Those candidates who proceed successfully through the psychometric test were selected to participate in the six-month long ALP.
The programme has been designed to impart the principles of effective strategy and management to students in practice and in theory, as well as to provide essential training around intellectual, emotional and physical well being. Over a period of six months encompassing 180 direct learning hours – six hours per day for 5 working days per month – successful delegates will receive in-depth training in key areas of leadership in a carefully designed programme consisting of six distinct modules comprising both class room and experience-based instruction that will be complemented with special input sessions on emotional intelligence and, to prepare candidates for a rapidly evolving world, the leadership requirements of social media.
