Learning digital leadership: levelUP!

Managers today need different skills and have to be able to apply new methods than was the case just a few years ago. That is why we launched levelUP!, a ten-month training program for successful leadership in the digital world, for our executive staff in 2017. For the levelUP! program, we are cooperating with the internationally renowned business school Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE) in Durham, North Carolina (USA). The program not only helps to expand and improve leadership skills, but also conveys new perspectives and ways of thinking through dialog with leading innovators and management experts. levelUP! comprises modules that can be combined flexibly: Interactive learning formats are mainly available in digital form, although some are also offered as classroom courses. Managers can select their personal learning content, making the learning process perfectly tailored to individual requirements. More than 1,400 managers from Deutsche Telekom took part in levelUP! in 2017 and 2018.
