Alfardan Group recently enrolled in an Executive Certificate in Leadership Development Masterclass held on the campus of Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) and led by Georgetown University’s Institute of Transformational Leadership in Washington, DC.
The two-day hybrid course facilitated training needs and knowledge gap analysis that included perspectives from across the diverse portfolio of the Group, with the aim of leveraging a competitive advantage in local and global markets.
The course identified the key topics and targeted training interventions needed for future engagement, which will be incorporated into a customized curriculum development process for the Group. The impact of the course on the management and organization will also be evaluated to learn information that can be used as a benchmark for future programs.
Mr. Omar Hussain Alfardan, President and CEO of Alfardan Group said, "We continuously aim to work on combining our successes in providing an Exclusive Experience across various fields and leveraging the diversity and access our conglomerate has in various markets. Our management and work style therefore need to be ready to change in accordance with what the market demands by ensuring that we guide, prepare, equip and support individuals to successfully adopt change to drive organizational success and outcomes in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030."
