Fujitsu ‘Step Up’ Programme
An imaginative. practical leadership programme for emerging leaders
How can we encourage our leaders to be bold in their ambition for the future? With the role of leadership encompassing some many key skills how can we support a new generation of leaders in identifying their role in the future of leadership and being brave enough to pursue it.
Fujitsu recognises the importance of growing talent from within and has therefore invested in the Step Up program to encourage new leaders to think big, be bold and step outside of their comfort zone. It is fantastic to work within the Step Up project team and see the ambition of so many new leaders across the European region of Fujitsu and their drive to achieve.
Each cohort works through an extensive 18 month program, incorporating workshops, coaching and self-directed learning. The overwhelming success of the program in our first few cohorts has resulted in us embarking on a 6th cohort in 2022. With nomination rates exceeding places time and time again.
