International people development expertise in the local Qatar market
We provide a dynamic and fresh approach to learning and development, bringing many years of international experience to the local market. Being locally based, we are able to provide services to match your business needs, as well as partner your organisation in long term consultation and developmental activities. Our courses are an interactive blend of workshops, lectures, discussions, case studies, reflection exercises, group and individual activities, presentations and assessments. Each course consists of a variety of workshops, providing explorative learning opportunities that promote relevant theories and analysis among delegates, as well as provide insight into theoretical practice and the development of new skills and knowledge.
Developing cohesive and collaborative teams through expert facilitation
Team building is a proactive approach to improve cohesion between team members. We focus team building activities on improving communications skills, morale, commitment and consensus, leadership development, delivering goals and objectives, reducing negative conflict, enhancing projects, developing individual and team competencies, leading change, promoting organisational values, inspiring innovation and so much more. We offer a diverse range of team building activities and have partnered with our clients to provide fun-filled, thought provoking activities that meet the needs of teambuilding objectives.
Impactful individual and/or group coaching programmes to maximise potential
To leverage class based learning, coaching is deemed to possess the most impact. We provide executive coaching services, where we assign an Executive Coach to a delegate or group of delegates to embed learning gained through our developmental programmes or related field. While we have developed best practice coaching guidelines and practices through our many years of experience, we are happy to work with our clients to tailor the most appropriate coaching programme to suit individuals, groups or organisational needs. Each developmental course can be blended with a one to one coaching programme aimed to develop and enhance individual competencies learned through coursework. Class based training together with executive coaching provides a greater learning for delegates and is often used as part of a Qatarisation modality for development.
Supporting the state of Qatar’s 2030 vision for people development
Qatarisation is a vital component of the state's strategic 2030 vision; enabling Qatari to hold key positions to support the state's sustainable business requirements. An effective Qatarisation programme is designed to recruit, develop and retain Qatari into permanent positions seamlessly, with minimal disruption to organisational operations. Our approach is to partner organisations in developing a robust framework to establish Qatarisation programmes to meet business needs. Combining international best practice with local expertise and understanding, we develop medium to long-term Qatarisation solutions that balance the needs of the Developees with business objectives. Developees going through a Qatarisation programme will enjoy a blend of learning that enhances personal and professional growth. We establish an Individual learning plan combining our developmental courses and executive coaching.
Mindfulness courses, trainings and mindful soultions for individuals and organisations
In QD&CC we offer mindfulness courses, trainings and mindful soultions for individuals and organisations.
Recent years have seen an increased focus on mindfulness and its numerous benefits. As mindfulness programs make their way into the fields of education, mental health, work place stress reduction, and leadership developmen, it begs the question - what is the basis for this profound wave and sudden ubiquity of mindfulness? Part of the reason why mindfulness is becoming so popular in widely different contexts is that it is not simply about learning a narrow, specific skill. Rather, it is about learning a new way of approaching our usual tasks with a state of mind ready to accept, grow, learn, transform, and empower. It is therefore endlessly applicable throughout all aspects of our lives.
Modern neuroscience informs us that we can actually shape and train our brain to be more harmonious and less reactive by practicing mindfulness continuously throughout our lives. This holds promising perspectives for the future of mental health, change, and our quality of life. Mindfulness training teaches people to be more present in the now, and less ruminating about the past or fearing for the future. It teaches clear and stringent ways to train the mind to be less reactive, safer, and more connected to the surrounding world.
The research points to 3 ways mindfulness practices is beneficial:
1. Training attention
2. Increasing self-knowledge and self-mastery
3. Creating useful mental habits.
