Eric Desaulniers – President of Nouveau Monde Graphite

20 December 2019

One on one

1. What led you to become president of Nouveau Monde Graphite? As a physicist + geologist, you might say that I wasn’t predestined to become a CEO. But my expertise and audacity pushed me to look into new technology, and explore an underestimated sector in Quebec’s subsoil. The result? A world-class graphite deposit. I founded […]

1. What led you to become CEO of the Welcome Hall Mission? It was an opportunity to have a major impact on our city. I’ve always been lucky, in both my life and my career. When the Board called me, with everything I’ve done over my career, I saw an opportunity to really give something […]

15 February 2019

One on one

1. What led you to become President of the Ordre des Ingénieurs du Québec? I had the deep desire to reposition the engineering profession and bring it back its lustre.

Ultra-performing, but for how long?

11 December 2019

In our mind

Throughout my years at La tête chercheuse, I’ve been interested in all kinds of phenomena – sometimes new, sometimes surprising, and always thought-provoking. Because we work, day after day, in a real human laboratory, thanks to our exploratory approach with candidates, we often make observations that lead us to, not necessarily generalize, but certainly to […]

Competitive or performing?

11 December 2019

In our mind

It’s a question I often ask because, for me, it encompasses two very different notions. First, the performer is motivated to go above and beyond, to succeed as a team and deliver results. Second, the competitive person compares (to last quarter’s results, the other team, the competition…), in a spirit of competition. Competitiveness doesn’t always […]

A head full of interview questions: La tête chercheuse’s TOP questions

20 December 2019

Be in the known

Although time is sometimes limited, the selection of a new player is a process that should not be taken lightly. Whether it is for a position creation or a temporary replacement, one should never try to just “fill a chair”. The addition of a recruit must fit in with the strategic focus of the organization […]

“Why do you want this job?” said the interviewed interviewer.

17 December 2019

In the spotlight

Yes, it’s essential to uncover why the job seeker is interested in interviewing for a specific job at your company. You might also be interested in how they present themselves, formulate ideas, and whether they’ve come prepared. But the person you’re evaluating has an opinion too, one that’s equally as important. First impressions are a […]

Is professional happiness a new concept?

17 December 2019

In the spotlight

No, especially not at La tête chercheuse. For more than twenty years, we’ve been working with people who want “better” – a better quality of life at work. We’re not about to hide it – today’s “better” coincides with a labour market transformation that’s handing talent “the long end of the stick” – more often […]

Celebrate “We”

11 December 2019

In the spotlight

We think you’ll agree when we say that the secret to a well-oiled machine that delivers successful projects is the support of your troops. At La tête chercheuse, we like to underline the little things that make everyday life more manageable while defining who we are as a collective team. Interestingly, the Harvard Business Review […]
