CEO's Message

Welcome to The Leadership Institute

I strongly believe that our greatest and most valuable asset is our people.
That is the reason why talent development and grooming our future leaders from within is a pillar of Majid Al Futtaim’s strategy.

The Majid Al Futtaim Leadership Institute is dedicated to enabling and supporting our growth by fulfilling three commitments:

To be the incubator of top talent and the engine to supply our future leadership pipeline.
To be the custodian of our culture and values and actively foster the ‘Majid Al Futtaim way’.
To provide world-class training and development to address our leadership needs across the group.

To ensure everyone across the business is speaking the same language when it comes to leadership development, Majid Al Futtaim has developed a leadership model that forms the core of The Leadership Institute. Our 34,000-plus team is constantly building our organisation, one that stretches, challenges and supports every person in their own professional journey. We want to ensure that every one of our colleagues is on a clear path paved with potential, and that every individual has a comprehensive understanding of the behaviours and skills that will get them to where they need to be in order to live their most successful lives. 

The future of Majid Al Futtaim is bright, and I look forward to the role that The Leadership Institute will play in supporting us to achieve our goal of fostering an environment of empowerment, growth and development.
