Majid Al Mehairi: A Leader Must Challenge, Develop, and Innovate.

Within the context of its interest in building effective leadership and the preparation of the promising future leaders, the National Archives gives special attention to the Future Leaders program due to its influence on building the leadership personality, developing it, and enhancing its skills and experiences. The members of the program will participate in ten specialized training sessions for ten weeks. Each week a workshop will be held at a different governmental or semi-governmental entity. The program will avail its members the opportunity to meet experienced leaders, listen to them and benefit from their experiences and expertise. These field visits, live interviews, interactive and dynamic activities will enrich the members’ knowledge accumulation and expand their information and their aspiration to new ways in the art of leadership.  
In this context, the National Archives received the members in the Future Leaders program, who met H.E. Majid Al Mehairi, Executive Director of the National Archives, being a distinctive leadership personality that left an imprint everywhere he served. During the meeting, he spoke about his career and his tireless quest for the development and innovation. Furthermore, he urged for self-development of skills and expertise and for innovation.
It is noteworthy that the members of the Future Leaders program have stopped at a number of organizations including Etihad Airways, the Judicial Department, Oasis Company, Cleveland Clinic, Abu Dhabi Media Zone twofour54, and others.
The program is concerned with the preparation of the next generations of leaders through effective management of talent in order to ensure the continuity and the development of the best elements in the vital administrative and technical positions at the National Archives. The members in the program were selected through a series of assessments of the young staff of the National Archives.
The Future Leaders program, with its ten sessions that contribute to the development of skills, will avail its members the opportunity to learn from the main leadership lessons and to benefit from them in the future. The program provides the members with the most important articles and books that serve its objectives and aspirations to continuous development.
