Dell's global curriculum
Being an inspiring leader requires a broad range of skills, including strategic thinking, listening, problem solving, decision-making, and the ability to motivate others to do their best work. Leading within Dell’s fast-paced, global work environment requires additional skills such as leading geographically dispersed teams, managing remote workers, and understanding diverse cultural backgrounds. To cultivate these leadership skills at all levels of our organization, from team members to first-time people managers to our executives, Dell has developed end-to-end development programs. This end-to-end curriculum increases engagement and drives inspirational leadership for Dell’s strategies, priorities and goals.
The Executive Rapid Start Program consists of a customized on-boarding plan and resources that helps incoming executives to accelerate their time to performance. The plan and toolkit provides resources and coaching around Dell’s culture, business, and organization. Executives may also take advantage of targeted leadership programs and executive coaching to enhance their development.
Manager and Director Development
New leaders are developed in our Foundations of Leadership Program to smoothly transition to their role. As leaders progress into a director role, they will attend the Director Leadership Program designed to enhance the business acumen of directors and provide them with an opportunity to learn from senior Dell leaders . Additional training workshops and leader-led sessions are available to hone leadership skills once development programs are completed.
From technical training to communication skills and sales workshops, Dell’s Professional Development courses encompass a wide breadth of topics. Current course offerings align with business goals and strategy.
We advocate for all team members to take advantage of learning and training opportunities. Our courses and programs help prepare our team members for present and future roles. The Dell curriculum is robust and brimming with useful knowledge, directly aligned with a positive career experience.
