For the first time ever, the habits behind Dubai's success...hear Leadership Dubai Style to learn how Dubai grew against the odds (and how you can as well). Every now and then, a story comes along that absolutely captures your attention. Dubai is one of those for me, but not just me - millions around the world yearn to come to Dubai. This global super city, which just five decades ago was a cholera-plagued backwater, might just be the picture of a dream becoming reality. But how, exactly, did this incredible transformation take place? Leadership! But not your run-of-the-mill government leadership, nor typical corporate leadership, nor leadership taught in classrooms. This is Dubai-style leadership. Living and working in Dubai for the past decade, I've seen the leadership impact firsthand. As a leadership scholar and advisor to CEOs, I thought I was perfectly situated to discover the reasons behind Dubai's success. So, in 2008 I set out to discover the city's "secret sauce". Then the global financial crisis hit! Disaster! I pressed the pause button on my research, and, like everyone in the city, held my breath. Well, what happened next confirmed that there is indeed something unique and special here. I spent the next three years researching, interviewing more than 200 leaders, and identifying the city's leadership secrets, eventually whittling them down to 12 habits. My aim was to develop a replicable model that I could share with my audiences - leaders in businesses, governments, and elsewhere. Anyone who is interested in leadership, and in particular achieving exceptional results, can benefit from understanding the 12 habits I outline here. To learn how to lead Dubai style, we need to walk the desert paths of the past to the superhighways of the future. Leadership Dubai Style retraces the city's journey and draws out the leadership habits that emerged over time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dr. Tommy Weir.

The award-winning filmmaker and photographer Ammar al-Beik, who was born in Damascus in 1972, represents the experimental film of his country like few other Syrian artists of his generation. His works were aired at international film festivals such as in Venice and Berlin since the early 2000s, but were also shown in museums in New York, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo. Ammar al-Beik came to Berlin, his current place of residence and work, via Beirut and Dubai in 2014. One to free discloses a first overview of his creative work in a German art institution. Al-Beik portraits his surroundings poetically and highly politically, personally and with a keen eye. With a deeply humane attitude, he turns personalities from the cultural world in the Middle East to protagonists of his work, as well as overlooked individuals.
