Hats off to Jean-François Ducharme, Senior Director with the Potential Assessment Practice of Raymond Chabot’s Human Resources Consulting Group in Montréal, for the release of his new book with Éditions Quebecor entitled, Gérer la pression au travail: Des repères pour le gestionnaire ambitieux.

Peppered with liberal amounts of psychoanalysis, Jean-François’ work explores various ways to define oneself when faced with the questions that numerous managers are asking themselves.

Are you:

  • * The honest, stable and reliable worker, the one who’s convinced that every solution must first conform to popular opinion?
  • * The person who seeks to perfect his image and be proactive in selling his strengths and added value?
  • * The person who believes focusing on being efficient will get more results?

At once accessible and dynamic, Jean-François’ book is not a practical guide, but rather, serves to educate readers on the central errors of so many business leaders’ careers.

Véronique Denys, Tax Manager with the Québec City office, is off on another adventure after having made her dream of conquering Everest come true last May. Véronique will now attempt to scale the Carstensz Pyramid in Oceania in order to complete the “Seven Summits” challenge.

The “Seven Summits” challenge consists in climbing the tallest mountain peaks of each of the seven continents—an international challenge coveted by the greatest mountaineers in the world. If Véronique manages to scale the Carstenz Pyramid, she will only have to climb to the top of the Vinson Massif in Antarctica to become the first Québecker ever to accomplish this epic feat.

“Now, I’m beginning to realize that I can make this happen. Before climbing Everest there was always a doubt, because you’re faced with so many unexpected occurrences in the Himalayas, but now, the dream that I’ve cherished for so long should be achieved before the end of the year, if all goes well”, said Véronique in an article that ran in Le Soleil on September 25. Best of luck, Véronique!

To relive the highlights of Véronique’s trek to the top of Everest, check out the moving video taken by Véronique on the tallest mountain in the world.
