In order to form excellent leaders capable of guiding the evolution of multi-utility companies in Italy, we began the project for the Acea Managerial Academy, in collaboration with Ama and Atac Roma and with the scientific partnership of the Luiss Business School. Our objective is to build the distinctive skills to optimise the way we manage the services we offer, in order to provide increasingly effective responses to our customers' requirements. The Academy consists of two training programs – Elios and Aurora – based on the Leadership model and focused on three dimensions: oneself (initiative and achievement); others (teamwork, mobilizing talent and developing relationships) and the market (knowledge of the reference business and value creation).
This is a programme directed at managers which, using an interactive teaching method, tackles issues associated with: Decision Making, Problem Solving, Leadership, Strategic Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, Open Innovation, Entrepreneurship.
The programme, initially intended for Under-35s recruited to the company during the previous 3 years, was later extended to include people forming part of professional development courses. Participants discussed various topics with a view to learning more about the Group’s business, enhancing teamwork skills and developing organisational awareness.
