Leadership Focus prepares Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar alumni for leadership
Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) alumni working in Qatar spent a week learning leadership and management skills on a course organised by WCM-Q’s Division of Alumni Affairs.
A total of 10 WCM-Q graduates completed the seven-day Certificate of Leadership and Management programme, learning a range of topics including different management styles, performance management and motivation, presentation and communication skills, the role of coaching and mentoring, decision-making tools, emotional intelligence and how to enhance assertiveness, among other skills.
The training, which took place at WCM-Q’s campus in Education City, engaged the alumni in lectures and interactive exercises to teach them a variety of key leadership and management skills. These included making a five-year plan for career progression, how to manage the performance of teams by creating environments that are based on trust and mutual support, using coaching to improve performance, utilising appropriate visual aids and presentation tools, understanding the impact of body language, and by actively listening to feedback and giving appropriate responses to questions, among many others.
