Leadership for Telecoms Innovation

Creativity, innovation, and an awareness of competitive advantage have always been key enablers for successful companies within the telecoms Industry. But organisations often struggle to evolve and to manage the change that is needed to fully maximise their position within the wider competitive environment. This programme focuses on developing a team that can effectively drive change and take the organisation (through effective leadership and communication) on a journey that embraces innovation and creativity – but with a wider appreciation of the strategic factors that affect the industry.

This programme is ideal for senior or mid-senior managers looking to develop their own leadership skills and to build an innovative environment in which employees can thrive and create maximum value for the organisation. It can also be customised for more junior managers who need to build a foundation on which to develop leadership and management skills. The structure of the programme is absolutely ideal for in-house delivery to an established or newly formed team – where the focus and style of delivery can be tailored specifically to the audience.

This programme develops individual leadership and management competences, and provides a framework on which managers can develop their professional relationships, enhance their communication, and refine their leadership skills. Using Telecoms Industry examples and case studies, it builds greater awareness of both people and commercial issues, enabling individuals to contribute much more effectively in terms of innovation and creating value within their organisation.
