Social Contract

At EMLC we strive to contribute to the growth and betterment of the societies in the Middle East by growing business leaders who are working in the region.


  • We help local leaders achieve their ultimate potential
  • We help expat leaders understand the particular characteristics of the Middle Eastern region and the specific leadership behaviours and skills needed to succeed
  • We work towards preserving the unique heritage and culture of the Arabian world by recognizing the particular approaches of leadership natural to this region, which has been developed over thousands of years of civilization

This attitude and search for the embedded local leadership traits rejects the superior act of imposing external leadership models brought from countries and cultures overseas. Instead it highlights the inherent richness.

In addition to our commitment to the Arabian world, our social contract is about the betterment of the practice of leadership. EMLC is calling on all leaders to take the Oath of Leadership.
