Center for Continuing Education at AUK Launches Its First Leadership Development Program


The Center for Continuing Education at the American University of Kuwait is launching its first homegrown Leadership & Supervisory Skills Certificate Program, under the title: "Emerging Leaders" Certificate Program. The program will be offered to the public for the first time starting Spring Semester 2015.

The program has been developed in early 2014 and is offered exclusively for corporations on a customized basis. During the past few months, CCE worked with their program instructors and program development coordinators to create a "fit for purpose program" to accommodate the developmental needs for all middle management professionals in any industry.

In this transformational program participants will study 8 modules throughout the course. The program will start with an introductory model on leadership and will proceed to cover areas such as: Communication in the Workplace, Building and Leading High Performance Teams, Conflict Resolution, Exceptional Customer Care, Creative Problem Solving, Motivational Leadership, Achieving Successful Results, Human Intelligences and Wellbeing and Carving the Leader Within.

Instructions will be delivered at the American University of Kuwait by Dr. Amar A Behbehani, holder of a Ph.D. from Florida State University [FSU], who will focus on developing the leadership skills of the individual within and Dr. Stacey Al-Ghawas, holder of a PHD from University of California at Santa Barbara, will work on developing the technical and management skills required from a leader in the business environment.

Participants will receive a Professional Certificate upon completion of this program from the Center for Continuing Education at American University of Kuwait.

The participants can enroll in the program either from the 18th to the 22nd of January 2015 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm or from the 25th of January to the 9th of February 2015 from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
