MAKE 2024 - Thrive & Shine: Empowering Growth Mindsets

AS Watson's annual senior leaders meeting, MAKE 2024, just wrapped up in Dubai last week with interactive case studies, the sharing of best practices, and in-depth discussions on strategic agendas. The UAE was the selected venue for the meeting because it is a new market where AS Watson has experienced growth and has a strategic role in the GCC region.

Throughout the meeting, various topics were discussed, including how to accelerate leadership to create impact, how to do things differently for different results, how to drive loyalty, and how to empower the organisation in pursuit of sustainability goals. One of the key highlights was an interview with Mr Omar Al Futtaim, Vice Chairman and CEO of Al Futtaim Group, who shared valuable insights on leadership, people development, and the enduring significance of sustainability as a trend.

The theme of the meeting was “Thrive & Shine - Empowering Growth Mindsets”

Thrive is a powerful word - to thrive means to flourish, to prosper, and to grow vigorously. It's about going beyond mere survival and embracing the opportunities that lie before us. It's about pushing boundaries, unlocking our full potential, and achieving greatness. Thriving is not just a destination; it's a continuous journey that requires dedication, resilience, and a belief in our own abilities.

Shine means that when we shine, we radiate brilliance and inspire others. It's about embracing our unique strengths and talents and using them to make a positive impact. As leaders, it is our responsibility to create an environment in which each and every individual can shine. By empowering our teams, fostering a culture of collaboration, and recognising and celebrating achievements, we can create a workplace where everyone feels valued and motivated to give their best.

Empowering Growth Mindsets involves believing that our abilities and intelligence can be developed through dedication and hard work. It's about embracing challenges, seeking feedback, and continuously learning and improving. When we empower growth mindsets, we cultivate a culture of curiosity, innovation, and resilience. We encourage our teams to take risks, learn from failures, and constantly push the boundaries of what is possible.

With the fruitful results of the MAKE 2024 meeting, AS Watson is ready to forge ahead, working collaboratively to thrive and remain at the forefront of the industry, delivering exceptional value and experiences for customers worldwide.
