Doha, 18 September 2014: As part of Shell’s ongoing support for leadership and human development in Qatar, the company hosted a cadre of Qatari executive leaders selected for Qatar Leadership Centre’s (QLC) Executive Leaders Programme; the visit took place at the Qatar Shell Research and Technology Center earlier this week. The QLC participants were introduced to Qatar Shell’s assets, businesses and wider contribution to Qatar’s society, as well as engaging in discussions around Safety Leadership, and People Development.
Qatar Leadership Centre is a national platform for leadership excellence, in support of the development goals of the State of Qatar. Their programme includes customized executive leadership development, taught by respected global partners. Participants are also given the opportunity to learn first-hand from senior decision-makers at Qatar’s top governmental and business organizations about the challenges and best practices of their operations and business. Participants of the programme come from various public and private sectors, including Qatar Petroleum, QatarGas, Ooredoo, Qatar Foundation, Qatar National Bank, and more.
QLC offers three specialized leadership programmes; one for Qatari professionals between the ages of 25 and 35; an executive leaders programme aimed at Qataris between the ages of 36 and 46; and a programme for Qatari government professionals, the latest QLC leadership offering. Currently, three of Shell’s Qatari staff are enrolled in QLC’s programmes.
