M&A | Intercultural Workshop in Recife | 2nd. Phase

 PQS_Coordinators & Supervisors Team_15.06.2018

Intercultural workshop with Brazilian Coordinators & Supervisors Team| 14-15 June 2018 | Recife – PE. – Brazil

Working with this team of 37 fantastic people was an outstanding and very rewarding experience!

Christian Hvidbo and I (as facilitators) couldn´t believe how so very aligned with the Conscious Business concepts and prompt at voicing out their opinions this group was!
What an enriching and valuable event as for sharing and building upon the metaphors and concepts into real voiced commitment and insights… wish these 2-day sessions kept on going… but we will make it bear the fruits of a great and smooth transition for Alpek Polyester Brazil (PQS).

I guess we could summarize the amazing level of insights this way:
 “Your attitude is everything in life. How you handle yourself, and how you react to situations and challenges that present themselves. Don’t let your excuses keep you from reaching your goals.”

Congratulations to everyone involved, from planning to delivery!

Recap from the previous and 1st. Leadership workshop at Alpek Polyester in Brazil:
Intercultural workshop with Mexican and Brazilian team | 08-09 May 2018 | Recife – PE. – Brazil
PQS is a Chemical-Textile Industrial Complex whose objective is to produce the principal polyester inputs in its different forms: http://www.pqspe.com.br/a-empresa/apresentacao
The company has been properly and legally acquired by Alpek Polyester, a company that belongs to Alfa Group and has multiple business organizations around the world.
From May 1st. 2018 PQS becomes integral part of the group and should be renamed as Alpek Polyester Brazil.
We (Botelho & Global Associates) and our colleagues from Axialent have managed to successfully deliver the 1st. intercultural workshop in Brazil and the major outcome has been the consensual definition of their “Manifesto”: the “APB Way of Working Together as a Team”.
This has been an amazing and challenging project and we have been directly involved in it since October 2017.
We are committed to supporting the M&A project, the people and the organizations involved for the time it takes to complete a smooth transition towards the end of 2018 and beyond.
The new company has just been officialized and new challenges await for us and the multicultural teams along the way towards putting their best competencies at the service of a common goal into the future.
We wish the various teams (both local and corporate in Mexico, Argentina and the U.S.) and in full collaboration with this new venture, the maximum level of excellence in their operation, an outstanding commitment of all players in synch and sound and sustainable results in Brazil.

Mentes alinhadas são muito difíceis de achar!

¡Mentes alineadas son muy dificiles de encontrar! 

Aligned minds are so hard to find!

Gebonden geesten zijn zo moeilijk te vinden!
