The Dubai Department of Economic Development (DED) launched its inaugural leadership development program this week with 20 future leaders selected from the department and its four agencies. The program is part of DED's contribution to the nation's Emiratisation and capacity-building goals.

The future leaders, selected from middle management, have been handpicked from the DED, the Export Development Corporation, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders, the Dubai Shopping Festival Office and the Foreign Investment Office.

The three-month training program will provide all 20 Emirati with the practical tools needed for leadership success. The future leaders will participate in modules on strategic and operational planning, leadership and management development, creative problem-solving and decision--making, along with presentation skills. The program structure enables the future leaders to implement learnings in their daily activities as they complete each module.

Dr Jasim Al Ali, Director of Human Resources at the DED, said: "The Department has very clear plans for its UAE national employees, to contribute to the formation of a UAE national leadership cadre in keeping with the objectives of the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015. By continuing to invest in the development of our Emirati staff, we are playing a part in the creation of a sustainable knowledge economy."

Dr Al Ali added, "By providing these opportunities, we hope to build a team of leaders who will have every opportunity to lead DED to its next phase of growth. With four agencies now under the umbrella of DED, there has never been a better time or better opportunities for young and talented Emiratis to participate in the development of our economy."

The first DED leadership development program will end in November. The department plans to launch additional leadership programs for senior management employees, at director level and above.
