Advantages of the "stretched elastic"

A CEO of a large company, for whom I provided energy consulting, told me that when he needed something important, he asked an already busy executive!

The justification was that these guys are more likely to be well organized and, above all, who had the confidence of those in charge.

I found this reflection very interesting and even inspiring!

Busy, up-and-coming people are generally proactive, curious about exploring the unknown, finding solutions and interested in participating in decision-making processes.

Have you ever imagined stretching your own "elastic"?

Welcome to the world of amazing leadership!

I wonder if that sees some sort of short term benefit but at a long term cost.

What I found out is: stretching the elastic is also associated with team work!

When one accepts additional responsibilities it is about stimulating "the team". 

In this line of thought, we are seeing a lot of changes. As opposed to buying assets, we are going for "energy as a service" - this means the same "guy" can do a lot more! 

The challenge is considering the options that are there "on the table". Knowing what kind of questions to ask and stimualte the team to answer them!

A whole new world is there to be explored and discovered!
