Management development programs expanded

Our new levelUP! program prepares executives at Deutsche Telekom to handle the topics of tomorrow in just ten months. The model of the ambidextrous organization sets the focus on strengthening a culture of innovation and technology-based management within the initiative. A mixture of digital and on-site formats enables managers to shape their learning flexibly and individually and define their own learning pathways. 700 managers at Deutsche Telekom took part in levelUP! in 2017; another class is planned for 2018.

leadFirst is a completely digital, virtual management transition program that is intended for managers who have recently assumed a management position at DT International. Its aim is to convey their new roles to the managers clearly and comprehensively and to create a solid management foundation in harmony with the leadership principles at Deutsche Telekom AG.

During the program, the participants reflect on their own ideas regarding leadership. This global, digital program not only helps to develop leadership skills at the highest level, but also promotes virtual leadership skills and offers numerous opportunities for networking.

We also offer a wide range of challenging training courses for future leaders in our German-language management development program (Führungskräfte-Entwicklungsprogramm, FEP) and our English-language Leadership Development Program (LDP). Both programs prepare participants for their first or more challenging management positions. With these steps, we also aim to implement a shared vision of leadership within Deutsche Telekom AG.
