Abstract

The main research objective was to determine the effectiveness of Leadership Development Programs (LDP) in the context of the Oil and Gas exploration firms in Abu Dhabi of United Arab Emirates (UAE) which are state-owned enterprises (SOE). After reviewing the literature review on SOEs, several relevant variables were identified. The dependent variable of the study was the LDP effectiveness while the independent variables were the government vision and individual values. In addition to the dependent variable and independent variables it was speculated that they would be mediated by organizational commitment and LDP program design. The coaching process in LDP was given critical importance in almost all respects such as in successful LDP outcome, LDP design and curriculum. There were six general hypotheses which were developed. The hypotheses of the research had focused on the influence and relationship between various variables and the sub-variables of the research. The study had adopted the quantitative methodology. The data was collected using a 5-part survey questionnaire which comprised 36 questions. The collected data of 255 samples were analysed using the SPSS version 20 software producing the correlation and regression results. The general trend of the participant responses showed their agreement and acceptance of being engaged in LDPs to improve their leadership skills. It was found that the Structural Contingency Theory (SCT) was suitable to explain the relationship between the variables. In addition, it was recommended to managers and policy makers in Abu Dhabi’s firms to focus on developing communication channels for better application and design of LDPs.
