Futurist - Expert on Banking, Innovation & Customer Value

Axel Liebetrau’s guiding theme: “Futurize your Business – before someone else does it for you”.

Current topics such as the war in Europe or the Corona pandemic, but also the permanent topics such as digitalization or new work do not make leadership and business easy. It feels like it has never been so difficult and we have never had so much to do. But now we have to look ahead! What exactly does this mean for us as leaders and entrepreneurs? What should we do now to survive the crises and challenges largely unscathed and to quickly regain momentum?

Axel Liebetrau: “Managers have to be forward thinkers. They must be able to communicate where the journey is headed in the future, otherwise they will become mere administrators.”

Future fitness of companies and people is his passion. This is not about presenting exactly what the future holds for us. Rather, it is about showing possible paths and alternatives for the employee and the company. The new “supreme discipline” is to maintain an overview and orientation, to recognize changed customer behavior and new technologies at an early stage, and to quickly turn these into viable solutions.

As a futurist and innovation expert, Axel Liebetrau brings valuable experience with starting “completely” new projects and tasks.

In innovation and future projects, creative and sometimes somewhat “crazy” approaches are used to motivate employees. A different mindset of the employees is developed: How employees think the project bigger, how employees strive for the maximum, or how employees keep questioning things and then keep doing something better. How to get employees and entire project teams excited about new things can be seen as a kind of art, but it’s not a “secret science.”

Liebetrau: “You won’t define new rules of the game with an orientation to the average.”

Axel Liebetrau – Innovations and technologies vs. abandonments and prohibitions.

Climate change and doomsday mood are the top topics in the media and in discussions at the regulars’ table. Far too quickly, the call for consumption renunciation, for prohibitions and restrictions comes up. Too little is said about innovations and technologies that can slow down and perhaps reverse climate change.
