Leading into the Future: The Hybrid Leader
with Sabine Weishaupt (Part 1)
As part of PeopleSmart’s focus around Leading Into the Future, in partnership with The Business Transformation Network (The BTN), we are eager to bring you Sabine Weishaupt (Future Leadership Design - Chapter Lead at Deutsche Telekom)
Sabine is passionate about empowering, encouraging and energising people to grow for success and happiness. In her current role she is heading Deutsche Telekom’s global team of leadership development, learning and transformation consultants. Her team is a diverse and international group of people spread over 10 countries and with a broad range of backgrounds from engineering to sales to HR. Under her leadership the team develops large scale development programs as well as short learning interventions in an experimental approach whilst pushing the digitisation strategy of the company.
Sabine joins this Leading Into The Future series, to share some of the challenges and opportunities for the hybrid leaders.
One of the first topics that Sabine mentions is the important role of certain set of skills that the digital leader needs to have, as opposed to an in-person leader. Sabine highlights the importance of listening capabilities and digital literacy as essentials attributes to help leaders bring their employees together and shares examples that facilitate employee growth.
Sabine also shares a few examples of what Deutsche Telekom has been implementing to empower their employees to help them work better within teams.
