Each year, the FLI tackles one Grand Challenge of Leadership. By in-depth interviews with high-profile experts and onsite Future Labs, FLI members figure how leadership can master this topic in specific business environments. After “Vision Y” (2015), “Meaning@Work” (2016), and “The Truth behind Innovation” (2018), the next Grand Challenge is called “Yes, Mr. Robot – Leadership and the Rise of Intelligent Machines”. Global thought leaders, senior executives and talents from leading universities join forces in exciting co-creation processes with one shared ambition: Generating valuable insights and future-proof strategies how leadership can unlock the true potential of individuals, teams and organizations.

FLI Academy

The FLI Academy is targeted towards business executives who strive to innovate their leadership culture. The diverse curriculum provides a broad array of applied leadership skills and capabilities. The formats of the FLI Academy reach from 1-day peer-learning sessions to 4-day certified master classes. Thereby, the contents are science-based but tailored towards their direct application in every-day life. The learning experience is always interactive and based on state-of-the-art didactic design.

FLI Community

Leadership is not a tool, but a life-long learning process. This requires the possibility for personal growth, the capability to shape communities as well as the development of organizational and societal foresight. The FLI community is an intellectual home for leaders. We offer a unique platform to step back, get inspired and meet like-minded peers to anticipate how leadership has to change if the world around is changing. As an FLI Fellow, you are invited to exclusive FLI Network events and the annual Grand Challenge and you receive significant benefits when participating in one of our workshops.

FLI Talent Program

We offer highly talented and motivated students to participate in all FLI activities free of charge. This is a unique opportunity to learn about leadership and meet senior executives as well as global thought leaders. But young talents cannot only learn from the experiences of senior executives but also bring unique knowledge and ideas to the table. By facilitating meaningful interactions between current and future leaders, FLI creates an environment of mutual learning and inspiration.
