Publisher's Summary

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.

From start to finish it was as informative as it was entertaining, being born a Dubai native and having grown up in this city watching it transform as time went on was an amazing experience; listening to this book brought back all those memories of watching my home town become the best place to live in the world.

Badly presented

Good content, but badly presented. Just an uninterrupted stream of words without any emotion, paragraphs or titles.

Excellently written and narrated. Tommy Weir is clearly an expert when it comes to both topics of leadership and the Dubai mindset for growth and prosperity.

I am moving to Dubai in a couple of months and I am all the wiser thanks to listening to this audio book.

Motivating, educational and very useful in helping foreigners to better succeed in business in Dubai.

Truly enlightening.

The habits it makes mention of are not foreign. One only needs and open mind and a willingness to do things differently to reap the rewards spoken of in this book.
