Muscat – The Ministry of Labour (MoL) on Thursday signed a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) with Weatherford Oil Tools Middle East Company to organise training programmes for employees of the State’s Administrative Apparatus.
The cooperation deal constitutes a step forward in conducting programmes of the national system for institutional innovation and management of change.
These include the ‘Exceptional Leadership Programme’ and the ‘Programme on Acceleration of Change’.
The MoC was signed by H E Sheikh Nasr Amer al Hosani, Undersecretary for Labour in MoL; and Mohammed Belkacem Murad, Weatherford’s deputy chairman for the Middle East and North Africa Region.
The ‘Exceptional Leadership Programme’ provides the participants with necessary tools to succeed in undertaking leadership roles, irrespective of whether a participant is new to leadership or having a long experience in the field.
Through this programme, the participants will acquire up-to-date strategies that will help them perform their career functions more effectively.
The ‘Acceleration of Change Programme’ seeks to hone the skills of leaders by helping them focus their energies, efforts and expertise on seven themes, namely ‘leading change’, ‘forging common goals’, ‘shaping visions’, ‘orienting commitment’, ‘sustaining change’, ‘monitoring progress’ and ‘establishing systems and structures’.
The signing of the memorandum stems from the ministry’s keenness to consolidate the relations between the public and private sectors to develop human resources.
