Stretching an Organization

Organizations are like rubber bands. They are flexible to a point. But if you stop stretching the rubber band and let go, it will return to its original size.

Over time, rubber bands can stretch out a bit more. But they can also break, if you push them too far.

Part of the art of leadership is knowing which parts need to stretch, and how much tension the band can handle before it breaks.
