Our training programmes cover key organizational competencies, skills and behaviours to help you communicate and influence, lead people, set goals, execute your strategy and develop expertise and know-how in any aspect of your business to drive successful organizational performance.

In the current fast changing business environment, the need for capable, well-equipped leaders in organizations of all types is greater than ever. Finding and developing candidates for leadership roles is a well-known tough journey that requires nourishment, evolution and reinforcement throughout its various stages.

A Holistic Approach to Learning - Leadership at All Levels

Leadership lives at all levels of an organization. From the CEO who inspires the organization towards a vision, to the individual contributor who aspires to deliver results and do well in their functions and responsibilities. Management and leadership are not mutually exclusive or separate and sequential as in traditional approaches.

MCE proposes a holistic approach to allow different levels in the organization build functional and cross-functional capabilities and enhance their leadership skills to execute on their organization strategy and sustain performance improvement.

Leading Self

Whether an individual contributor or a leader, you need to become a real team player and positively contribute to the achievement of your goals. Effective communication, collaboration and interpersonal skills will help you gain credibility and dependability to drive success and peformance.

Leading Others

You may have the technical or functional expertise but don’t manage to get your people follow you. A set of programmes allow you to set team goals and develop your leadership skills to gain your teams buy-in and commitment to execute on your strategy. You need to motivate and mentor, resolve conflict, delegate and organize priorities.


Leading Business

As business and organizations become more complex, you often need to develop expertise in other areas than your own specialization in order to gain know-how and get things done to achieve strategic success. This category of programmes includes topics and processes related to business management, financial, commercial and organizational expertise.









Through AMA Global, MCE partners with i4cp, a research organisation that performs research studies, organizational assessments and benchmarking surveys with a large network of leading global corporations to help them achieve superior performance.
