A powerful quote by Alfred D’Souza, which I have shared in the past: “For a long time, it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last, it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life”.

What others say about working with Gershon Mader & Quantum Performance Inc
I engaged Gershon in to help raise the performance of the EMEA region at Ciena shortly after the acquisition of Nortel’s MEN division.
Our challenge was to integrate two organizations with different cultures and create a positive, cohesive mindset whilst dealing with complex workforce reductions across multiple European countries.
Gershon worked with us for over a year. The first impact of Gershon’s work was on my leadership team.
Gershon, we finished our quarter (very late last night) and I wanted to share with you the good news: we exceeded our plan for the first time in over a year! This is our first breakthrough 🙂
There is no doubt in my mind this comes from a super motivated team executing together, and the Transformation and Breakthrough Session with you was a key step toward this.
Thanks, for all your support!
In taking up my role, I was faced with both a challenge and the opportunity of having a new leadership team… many of my colleagues had not worked together, were located in different parts of the world and were very focused on their individual areas of the business.
After working with Gershon I can say with conviction the team has strengthened considerably – relationships have developed, communications have become more open and, as a result, trust has deepened.
