This critique is for an article entitled “Leadership development in government of the United Arab Emirates: Re-farming a wicked problem” Written by professor Mathias in Journal of Teaching Public Administration. Leadership development programs are a focal point in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Federal and local governments as well as different business sectors focus on developing leadership. Thus, leadership development programs should aim to allow potential leaders to think out of the box permitting participants to develop a vision and find how they can serve people and develop the country. This can be achieved when potential leaders participate in the development process of leadership program including the design and get engaged in formulating the vision of the country through encouraging their hearts, and enable them by learning and practicing without fear.
