Leadership Development Program, which was realized within the scope of the joint project of Turkish Aviation Academy and Fatih Sultan Mehmet University and continued for 1,5 years, has been successfully completed with the graduation of 200 executives.

The first of the program which was designed for executives from different departments of Turkish Airlines was carried out on 23 May 2015. The aim of the program, conducted almost every month, is to improve executives’ skills and abilities of taking initiatives and making decisions by improving their functional competencies. The subjects of the training which was structured by expert instructors, who are experienced in aviation and management, were prepared by taking into account the cases that are likely to be faced in the aviation sector. Related courses mostly based on practical information include some topics like understanding the main differences between leadership and management, understanding and implementing modern leadership theories, practicing the situational and holistic leadership model in real and potential extraordinary cases, personal image management, and rules of protocol. 200 executives of 11 groups had the opportunity to improve their managerial and leadership skills with this program.

With the aim of contributing to organizational memory, nearly 100 corporate cases experienced by the executives who have participated in the program were investigated by the instructors and collected into a book by Fatih Sultan Mehmet University. The book will be used as a source book for similar trainings from now on.  

These trainings that are given within the framework of “Holistic Leadership” concept, will be delivered soon in English with the cooperation between General Electric Academy and Turkish Aviation Academy.

The Aviation Academy, widening its training catalogue with up-to-date trainings about almost all areas of aviation, continues to contribute to the development of Civil Aviation industry with its projects developed in cooperation with reputable corporate universities, various organizations and institutions.
