Riyadh — The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) held the “Coaching Day” event at its headquarters in Riyadh on Sunday, attended by SFDA CEO Dr. Hisham Bin Saad Aljadhey, during which he honored the top six leaders of the SFDA who have adopted the coaching approach.

Coaching is one of the most important modern methods for developing leadership skills, through dialogue sessions with deep questions that stimulate creative thinking to build plans and strategies to achieve goals, which translates through improved individual and institutional performance, a higher level of confidence in the organization of its various units, and improved integration and harmony.

The event included a speech by the CEO, a video presentation on coaching and an exhibition in which specialized and internationally accredited centers participate to present coaching and the services they offer.

The event also included sessions with the most prominent internationally accredited coaching experts, workshops and dialogue sessions on the importance of coaching in organisations.

The first workshop covered leadership methods in a virtual environment, basic remote leadership skills, the complexities and benefits of virtual coaching, and tips for virtual coaching.

The second workshop discussed the role of coaching in the development journey of leaders at all stages of development and the development of leadership abilities and personalities, and how this affects the improvement of skills acquired during training, and the Dale Carnegie methodology. — SPA
