Eric Blondeau
Expert in behavioural mechanisms applied to decision-making

If there is no action without intention… and if we possess everything that is needed to take a decision at a specific point in time… then how can we go from intention to action without our fears, beliefs, perceptions, needs and prejudices holding back our performance?

How can we use a universal and complex system of 11 interactive and interdependent levers in order to decipher the behavioural mechanisms that influence, accelerate or slow down the decision-making process?

When faced with a suggestion, an issue or a decision to make, the brain enters into a deliberation between these 11 levers that interact with each other and engender a singular behaviour. In doing so, our brain is protecting its priorities while observing a hierarchy that is invisible to “others”. Gaining knowledge of this approach frees us of the mind’s influence, modifies our perspective on events, and increases our consciousness when faced with the moment’s challenges.

By learning and practising the 3 tools that are the art and science of questioning, listening and influential actions, we are able to enlighten, better understand, raise awareness and reorganize the hierarchy that is imposed upon us by the brain’s unconscious pattern of routines.

From Intention to Action… how can we reduce the distance between these two in order to better anticipate and optimize our performance?

Understanding these mechanisms improves performance and pertinence of decisions in areas as diverse as:

  • Influence and Negotiation Strategies (M&A, contract transactions, buying and selling, new job offers, demands for ransom…).
  • Top-Level Sport (competitions, strategies, conflicts…) and Managing High-Stake Situations: quick decision-making under pressure of the event and/or result.
  • Crucial Decision-Making.
  • Managing in Complexity (12 markers).
  • Differentiation (strategic decision-making: cultural change and strategical change, rupture and transition in business models, co-construction, collaboration, cohesion).

What risks are we taking when we let our automatic behaviour react on our behalf?
What would we gain by consciously redirecting our attention to the reality of the moment?

In other words, what would we be capable of achieving if we weren’t afraid?

I propose we talk about it…

Curriculum Vitae

Eric Blondeau works in distinct areas of expertise that all have decision-making and performance in high-stake environments in common.
He has developed a protocol that deciphers behavioural and decisional mechanisms to provide a better understanding of how the mind is structured and arbitrates when transitioning from intention to action. He applies a targeted questioning technique to the 11 levers that influence our decisions in order to identify and correct the paradoxes that get in the way of performance.

His managerial experience has been forged over 30 years working both in France and abroad. His career led him to live and work over 10 years in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, the United States, Barbados and South Africa.
He brought home from his travels a deep understanding of interculturality and a particular curiosity for differences in perception and their consequences on the decision-making process.
The variety of his experiences and a multicultural approach allow him to assist and guide clients in all hierarchical positions using an original approach while integrating the expected performance and personal commitment requirements.
