The Mela Academy is a 10-day immersion in a demanding environment. It is a leadership bootcamp whose watchwords are purpose, authenticity, character, values. You will need all your skill to master the high refinements of leadership arts. But you will need all your courage to go deep in exploring your default reaction to authority – how manage the stress of handling systems – your true ability to work with power – before, as a leader, you can fulfill your potential and promise.

Mela is not all lectures and general theory. Plenary learning sessions alternate with breakout groups facilitated by experienced businesspeople, seasoned practitioners from around the world. Every idea is up for discussion; every lesson is tested against experience to prove its worth. Mela focuses on the real-life applications of leadership skills especially seen against the developing needs of Middle East today.
