IDG – Middle East Offers
Recently, twenty GUtech students benefited from a pilot session on “personal development & leadership”. The pilot session was delivered by Mr. Robert Biemans and Ms. Maryam Al Bakri from Inspirational Development Group Middle East (IDG – Middle East), a member of Inspirational Development Group (IDG).
IDG – Middle East focuses on leadership development, work ethics, team building and youth development. Their programmes are centred on people and are tailored around organisations’ needs, in particular leadership development and its impact on business performance.
The pilot session introduced participants to activities that support leadership team’s development by providing situations where much needed skills can be identified and practised. Students were presented with tasks that required them to collaborate. “The tasks helped me realise the importance of communicating with and listening to others when working within a team.” Commented the student Nibras Al Hadhrami, Applied Geosciences student.
Students were so engrossed in the task. “They were not aware of the strengths and weaknesses of each other and they overlooked the importance of presenting their results.” Pointed Ms. Heiderose Mooseen, TSSC Manager. IDG team took students through the process of acquiring knowledge and skills from direct experiences when they had to tackle tasks at hand. This process is at the core of experiential learning which requires feedback on results and reflection on behaviour.
