-Hesham Shawky, Head of CLMC &Treasury Back Office & Authorized Signatures


Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK), is a middle eastern bank experiencing rapid growth, particularly in the Egyptian business unit. ABK wanted to strengthen its leaders so they would be prepared to execute future strategic growth initiatives, and they wanted to provide development opportunities within the organization as a means of advancing and retaining top talent.


Over 100 leaders completed LEAD NOW! Experience.

Workshop offered remotely due to pandemic restrictions.


After being introduced to the LEAD NOW! Leadership Development Model, ABK partnered with Stewart Leadership to deliver the LEAD NOW! Experience workshop to over 100 of the top leaders within the organization. Stewart Leadership customized the LEAD NOW Experience workshop to fit the needs and culture of ABK. Over the course of three months, Stewart Leadership delivered five, two-day workshops, creating a common experience and understanding around what great leadership looks like and how to achieve it. Each workshop was delivered in an online, remote format in the fall of 2020.


The workshops were well-received and resulted in enthusiastic reviews. Attendees noted how engaging the presentation was – despite having low expectations of remote, online training. They reported leaving with an understanding that people were the main asset they could use to grow the organization. The Egyptian unit at ABK now has a shared leadership language, and all participants have been making steady progress as they work through their own, personalized, leadership development plan.
