Sheikh Mohammed talks with students during the graduation ceremony.
Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, attended on Wednesday the graduation of the second batch of The Mohammad Bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development’s Impactful Leaders Programme.
Sheikh Mohammed said that investing in people will always reap dividends.
Sheikh Mohammed’s remarks came while honoring the 32 graduates of the programme, in the presence of Mohammed Al Gergawi, Chairman of the Executive Office of Sheikh Mohammed.
The Impactful Leadership is the first programme to launch under the Mohammad Bin Rashid Leadership Framework, based on the new approach of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development.
The centre seeks to consolidate the vision of Sheikh Mohammad to make the UAE one of the most advanced countries in the world by 2071, under the UAE Centennial 2071 goals.
The Impactful Leaders programme, which runs for one year, was designed in collaboration with three international universities — UC Berkeley, the International Institute for Management Development (IMD) in Switzerland and Imperial College London — incorporating global trends in leadership development.
Sheikh Mohammed in a video clip posted on Instagram under the hashtag #FlashesofThought, “I always tell my team, in the race for excellence there is no finish line and this becomes more realistic every day… When we promise, we fulfill the promise… We all have dreams, but only the leader can transform them into reality. We all take risks in life, but the greatest danger is not to take risks at all. "
Sheikh Mohammed launched the hashtag #Flashes of Thought on his Instagram account last January, to share part of his life and work experiences and leadership vision with the public.
Sheikh Mohammed emphasized that the United Arab Emirates is a shining model of tolerance and openness in the region.
