First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) has partnered with The Talent Enterprise (TTE) and Harvard Business Publishing (HBP) to develop a leadership programme to equip high potential mid-senior level staff with the skills required to take on larger roles in the bank.


In 2018, FAB implemented a bespoke leadership training programme in order to:

  • Ensure high performing managers working across the company are aligned in terms of their leadership language
  • Provide high performing managers with access to the highest level of leadership training, using the latest tools and intelligence




TTE worked with HBP to design a 3-module leadership development programme through the below process:

  • FAB nominated 75 high performing managers from across the bank across three cohorts
  • A needs analysis was conducted using focus groups, interviews and the TTE 360 assessment solution
  • Once the needs analysis was completed, HBP used the results and the TTE 360 report to gain a better understanding on individual and group learning requirements to create the design and content of the programme
  • The training included both classroom sessions and webinars with selected Harvard professors


The programme is ongoing and participants from FAB are:

  • Appreciative of the development opportunity this training provides and aspire to make the most of it
  • Find the case study approach very helpful and its practical applications to their work has been useful
  • “TTE’s 360 assessment is an efficient method of collecting objective feedback on high performers”
  • “TTE and HBP teams are very responsive and professional, aligned to the Bank’s values and the training has been professional and impactful”
