Our belief


According to Hoefstede, Romania has a high index in avoiding uncertainty and a high distance to the power. Having an index of 90 for the Power Distance “means that people accept a hierarchical order in which everybody has a place and which needs no further justification. Hierarchy in an organization is seen as reflecting inherent inequalities, centralization is popular, subordinates expect to be told what to do and the ideal boss is a benevolent autocrat“*. On the other hand, a similar high index in the “Uncertainty Avoidance ” shows that there is an emotional need for rules (even if the rules never seem to work) time is money, people have an inner urge to be busy and work hard, precision and punctuality are the norm, innovation may be resisted, security is an important element in iShare your ideas, support the others, create a culture of trust and collaboration. Leadership does not need a title. It needs ACTION! Disrupt your business, disrupt your activity, make the most of your time and experience! Inspirational management is outdated. Conspirational change is the new way. Start moving ideas! Start moving people!

Alain Cardon is an executive, team and organizational systemic team coach. His international and creative training, consulting and coaching career has seen him work on most continents and in a wide variety of industrial, mining, distribution, government, service, communication, and consulting fields. He has specialized in accompanying breakthrough transitions and cultural transformations in large systems. Since 1979, he has authored over fifteen books on communication, management and coaching, many of which are translated into numerous languages, and some more recently published on Kindle.

As far as his personal style, Alain has developed a direct, confronting and empowering coaching approach that may be defined as a blend of brief, systemic, creative, and breakthrough posture and techniques. Although French national and part-time resident, his North African upbringing, his US education, his intensely international personal life and career make it difficult to define Alain’s executive coaching heritage as originating from one or another coaching school of thought, one or another national frame of reference.

Quantum Space and Time Warps in Leadership and Coaching The objective of the webinar is first to help leaders and coaches reconsider their own time-related frame of reference, and then provide examples of different areas in which they can use quantum-based time-and-space related powerful strategies in their decision-making, in project management, with their teams and with clients.

A short decision-making exercise will be delegated to the attendees- about 5-10 minutes with debrief – Plus time for some sharing.
Presentation of key space and time-related strategies in management and coaching processes, of challenging options to step out of standard linear paradigms to challenge oneself, teams we manage and client work. Numerous examples from real coaching and leadership situations. Question and answer period.
