What I’ve learned at Inventis Forum 2010, Novotel Hotel, 2010.06.17?

On 17th of June 2010, I headed to Inventis Forum 2010, Novotel Hotel. The event was organized by Business Edu. It was the second day of the event.

My notes:

Cătălin ZAHARIA (MindMaster) – The HiPotential employee: measuring potential and success-factors based coaching

– The crisis is just another normality;
– We had different kind of “normal” in these times:

  • 2001;
  • 2007-2008;
  • 2009-2010;

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” (Albert EINSTEIN)

– I our minds, we have these kinds of thoughts:

  • Somatic (body / feelings) – little used in business;
  • Cognitive (body / intellect);
  • Field (relationship / system) – little used in business;

– What does COACH stand for?

  • Centering – here, in me;
  • Opening – to suggestions;
  • Attending – with awareness – to external factors;
  • Connecting – with others, cooperating, asking questions;
  • Holding – sustain, stay in that state;

Mentoring helps you get access to how managers think & act;
– Personality tests measure factors that are stable in time;
– In sales it’s good to have a good procedure when dealing with clients;
Recommended reading: Gary HAMEL – “The Future of Management”;
– If you say “I’m a busy person”, this labels your behavior;
– The idea that anyone can substantially change is a bit naive;
– At a management level, it’s very important to have a good Learning Quotient (LQ);
– LQ can be analyzed;
– Change can be:

Radu IONESCU (RDI) – Internal solutions for training & outsourcing

– The crisis leads the firms into coherent behavior;
– Personal insight: if someone talks to me, I’m more attentive than in a situation when someone talks to a group;

I’ve also taken some photos (see the slideshow in full-screen mode):
