I could tell you the tale of a handful of senior executives from a variety of well-known companies and industries who invested more than fifteen years of their life and career in their organization. They rose through the ranks by taking on greater responsibilities every year or two, building strong teams around them, demonstrating great cross-functional teaming and collaboration, and delivering results beyond expectations.

What others say about working with Gershon Mader & Quantum Performance
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!

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.
