Emirates Islamic nurtures UAE National talent through specialised leadership program

Emirates Islamic recently culminated their three-part emerging leaders development programme, conducted in association with Hult Ashridge Executive Education.

The one-of-a-kind learning programme, involved a fully immersive simulation, aimed to condense years of leadership experience into a few days. The unique format involved reproducing real-life scenarios, to teach participants key leadership lessons and help them practice their responses to extremely challenging situations. The sessions were followed by extensive feedback sessions to improve self-awareness, resilience and their ability to think and act under pressure. The programme also included sessions on Psychological Safety and creating an organizational culture of feedback.

Salah Amin, Chief Executive Officer at Emirates Islamic, said: “The banking sector is fast evolving, and as a home-grown bank and a leading Islamic financial institution in the UAE, we are continuously working towards our commitment to ensure that our top talent is future ready. We greatly value our UAE National talent and strongly believe that they will play an instrumental role in shaping the future of banking. Through these specialized workshops, we aim to augment overall employee growth and performance.”

Also commenting, Marwan Salem Abunawas AlMheiri, Chief Human Resources Officer at Emirates Islamic, said “We, at Emirates Islamic, have always recognized the importance of enabling the professional growth of our people and investing in their development has remained a priority. We are thrilled at the success of our workshop conducted in association with Hult Ashridge Executive Education and are confident that it will equip our future leaders with the knowledge and leadership skills required for ongoing success.”
