1st FLI Conference (2014): "Phantom Change"

At the FLI Conference 2014 on “Phantom Change”, young talents and experienced executives met for the first time to discuss the topic of “overcoming the phantom change”. Change, was one important conclusion, needs confidence. Leadership through uncertain terrain means providing followers with a compelling idea of what the future looks like, the tools they need to act with agility, the openness to continuously question yourself and with the confidence that whatever surprises come up, the team will reach its goal.
