The two-day course, entitled ‘Leading the Qatar National Teams Towards Excellence’, took place in September and focused on the Maroons’ four core values – honour, loyalty, respect and victory.
Team managers and administrators learned how to enhance team performance, improve the relationship between coaches and players, and embed their core values among team members.
Ahmed Khellil Abbassi, the QFA’s Director of Operations, said: “We are constantly striving to motivate our players on the field but the only way to achieve success is if everyone – on and off the field – lives and breathes the same vision.
“This workshop was a great opportunity to re-align ourselves towards our vision and encourage us to always think outside the box.”
Abbassi continued: “Qatar has a number of talented and competent football managers and administrators, all working towards establishing the fundamental pillars that will help the QFA reach and exceed its objectives. Workshops such as this are a key part of that journey.”
The workshop, which was led by Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the Scottish Professional Football League, also provided a number of interactive sessions for attendees to get involved in.
Delegates were given team-bonding exercises to spark their creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
With media relations being a core part of the roles, they were also put under the spotlight and provided with challenging scenarios, which they were then asked to dissect and analyse, all while being filmed.
Commenting on his participation as a speaker, Doncaster said: “It is always a pleasure to work with football professionals from Qatar.
“Although there may be many differences in the challenges we face every day, we are all working towards having effective teams. Within this workshop, we exchanged global case studies where the national team’s four core values were brought to life.
“I am confident that that the hard work the delegates are doing now will make a great impact in 2022.”
