Why are you the right person for this job?
Wolfgang: I see the purpose of working in an area that
is shaping the future. We are coordinating the implementation of renewable-energy
systems for our customers and also offer the corresponding business models to
operate them. Our fields of operation are photovoltaic systems and hydrogen created
with solar energy. Therefore, we provide the energy of the future. This fact
inspires me and is one of the reasons why I love my job.
Why is your job the right one for you?
Wolfgang: We are working on topics that bring up new challenges almost every day while also providing us with the possibility of creating individual solutions with latest technology. This is exactly what
I want to do, pushing the limits of what is possible. Our team is flexible and
we can act faster than the usual standardised processes in the company. That
way we can deliberately try new ways. All those factors make my job exciting
and fit my way of working.
What skills should someone in your position
Wolfgang: One ought to be an absolute team player and
needs a keen sense for people's feelings and needs. You need to be able to
understand how employees who you want to lead feel. Of course there are
managers with little sense for people’s needs – that can work too – but not for
me. Fronius, as a family-run business, is a very people centred company, making
social skills even more important.
