Thanks to the vision and leadership of it’s rulers, the UAE has become a major player on the global stage, with a thriving economy and a reputation for innovation and excellence. The UAE’s development over the past few decades has been nothing short of remarkable. And, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates is one of the most inspiring leaders in the UAE. A strong advocate for youth empowerment that UAE youth aspire to his encouraging and inspirational words as a father, and as a leader. Here are 3 outstanding leadership lessons and skills that you can learn and apply from him to become a more effective and successful leader:
1- Consult with your team and come to decisions together as a team.
In many cases, making decisions is not always easy, but working on it with your team can be very beneficial for many reasons. It ensures that everyone is on the same page and aware of the plan moving forward. Also, it allows for different perspectives to be heard and considered which improves certainty in having you as a leader, and not only a manager. Consulting your team and coming to decisions together builds trust and cooperation. However, it is wiser to consult with your team and come to decisions together. So next time you’re facing a tough decision, be sure to involve your key players in your team to finalize your decision.
2- Helping those in need, specially people around you:
Leadership is more than just giving orders or telling people what to do. So, rather than expecting others to always serve them, a leader is always willing to listen to and help those who are struggling within the team. As simply as offering words of encouragement or inspiration, or listen to the teams challenges and ideas. Outstanding leaders are always ready and willing to help those in need, knowing that it’s not only the right thing to do, but also essential for building strong relationships and creating a successful team.
3- Invest in the future by having a clear vision and training the youth.
It has been said that the youth is the future for the UAE. This is especially true when it comes to investing in human development capital and soft skills. By having a clear vision for the future and training the young ones, we can ensure that our investments will pay off in the long run. When it comes to training them, we need to be sure that we are providing them with the necessary skills and knowledge they need to succeed and by providing them the opportunity to learn and grow. Only by doing these things can we ensure that our investments in the future will pay off.
It is always exciting to see young people learn from their leaders to become even better contributors to society than those before them. At Step up International, we believe that the UAE has a rich culture and traditions of leadership. We coach and support Emirati youth to become courageous, inspirational, influential leaders by mastering their public speaking skills so they can represent the UAE, it’s culture and create positive impact in the quality of people’s lives.
