28th – 29th November 2022, Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain | The General Council for Islamic Banks and Financial Institutions (CIBAFI), the global umbrella of Islamic financial institutions, and Ivey Business School continue their productive collaboration and successfully launched the eighth series of their joint Executive Programme. This year’s timely programme is themed: “Agile and Strategic Leadership for Succeeding in a Hyper Turbulent World”. The programme will run for two days.
After conducting the last two series of this highly interactive programme virtually, CIBAFI and Ivey Business School convened this year’s programme at the Le Méridien City Centre, Manama, Bahrain. The programme brought together Senior Executives from Islamic banks as well as regulatory authorities to lay the groundwork for a successful agile transformation and to lead cultural and behavioural changes within their organizations.
Agile leadership entails being adaptable and responsive to change, as well as empowering team members to collaborate to achieve the organization’s common goals. In today's fast-paced business environment, managers and executives can engage and empower their employees to become more flexible and adaptive by using an agile strategy.
Agile and strategic leadership, in this changing global paradigm, is now an absolute necessity for institutions around the globe. CIBAFI is thankful to the Ivey Business School for their continuous support in jointly organising this world-class and highly interactive learning experience for the leaders of the Islamic financial services industry. Participants of this programme will learn how to change their mindset and develop fresh concepts so they may test out disruptive and agile initiatives in their organizations. Participants will also engage in thought-provoking discussions about how leadership teams should commit to being vigilant and future proof their organisations. Their openness to diverse inputs from anywhere inside or outside the organization, and the extent of active networking outside of their comfort zones will be gauged and tested through a curiosity exercise.
As a leading international organisation, CIBAFI continually supports the Islamic financial industry through specific activities and initiatives which promote growth and uphold ethical practices and Islamic finance values in all financial dealings and transactions. CIBAFI is committed to facilitating cooperation between members and institutions of common interest as well as providing platforms to discuss emerging issues and share knowledge through specialized publications and comprehensive training programmes.
