Vodafone wanted to identify those who had a real calling for leadership and develop them into the businesses future leaders.

Intensifying competition and a rapidly changing marketplace meant that increasing leadership capability was a global priority for this multinational mobile network operator.

The Global Finance division wanted to ensure that more employees than ever before were suggested for the prestigious group-wide talent programme. They needed to locate and develop their leaders so they were better equipped to lead Vodafone into the future.

A Talent Academy covering topics from “leadership and trust” to “challenge and change”, all mapped onto the organisation’s leadership profile, was delivered in a range of practical formats to vary energy levels and keep people engaged.

Participants found the programme relevant to their particular challenges and a good opportunity to reflect on their performance and professional development. Sessions included:

  • Guide me
  • Assert yourself
  • Walk of life
  • Courageous conversations
  • Elevator pitch
  • Inspire
  • Peak performance
  • Collaborative solutions
  • Tricky situations
  • Listening

This programme is now in its fourth year.
