Keynote speech: The future is coming one way or another: We need to prepare for either.
From Industry 4.0, to migration, to the digital transformation, society is experiencing changes today that are permanent and difficult to predict. In order to take up arms against a market that is changing more and more rapidly, innovations constantly have to open up new pathways – and anyone who wants to tread a new path has to use a/their talent in order to leave their old path behind.
What actually is talent and how can it be encouraged? Every person is born with individual performance prerequisites. These have to be discovered through hard work and translated into outstanding performance through “extra miles”. Concentrating too much on combatting weaknesses will only rob a person of time they can devote to their strengths and will generate average, which is innovation’s biggest enemy. It’s not starry-eyed optimists, fears or pessimists we need; we need possibilists.
