Frequently Asked Questions
Please describe Quantum Integration in three words.
In the word "Quantum" we are referring to it as: an evolutionary leap from one state of awareness to a higher more evolved state. This Quantum framework creates a phenomenon that causes a rapid shift in the internal state of an organization based on changes in energy and environment. As this catalytic force occurs in business there is a natural growth and development process that takes place. In stimulating this culture, knowledge and innovation increase, and the work environment becomes an exciting place where people want to be their best and grow. We do this by creating a shared vision of discovery and learning, which generates inventive ideas, products and procedures that have previously been thought unthinkable.
In the word "integration" we are referring to it as: the components of a system collaborating together and becoming a unified whole. Without the integrative alignment, the system cannot fully relate, affect and influence the whole. (Organizations are like ecosystems where all parts of an organization are interrelating, changing and thereby affecting and influencing the whole).
Integration and aligned vision, values and goals, creates a critical piece to the workings of an organization. If this is not taken into account, it will cause a destructive process where the individual parts will battle or disassociate. Just like any system that is not in harmony with its component parts. Thus creativity, productivity and progress will be stifled or die:
versus in this integrated and align organization the system expands and thrives, creating greater productivity and evolution.
In the word "implementation" we are referring to it as: applying and putting into action systematic procedures based on principles, practices and systems that have been developed. These systematic procedures break down the work into process-specific areas, review the effectiveness and look for ways to improve them. As we implement these systems, we merge quantum theory with integrative principles creating a highly innovative business on the leading edge of business technology.
What would you do with two companies that are planning a merger?
One of the biggest challenges facing merging companies is the retention of employees during a time of often-turbulent change. We would look at the two companies; see what possible obstacles a merger may create and where there might be a lack of clarity and certainty. Without certainty, employees tend to get cynical and confusion is created. This can often lead to resignations.
We make sure that there are systems and structures in place that facilitate communication. Companies need to get really clear as to what issues might come up in a merger; as well as what their objectives, intentions and goals are for the process of completing the merger. We use assessment tools to find both organizational and individual strengths and weaknesses to match job skills and interests with work positions. We also survey what employees want and give them a chance to express their vision and concerns with change.
Often mergers mirror these three stages:
This is personified by a disintegration of the system and a reaction of fear, sadness, loss and denial on the part of employees. When one form of an organization ends, there can be feelings among employees where there is a loss prestige, status and security. Without outlets to express their feelings, these feelings might be internalized and cause upset later on. When it's dealt with openly, denial turns into the ability to acknowledge what you experience and prepares the organization for the next stage.
This stage shows an acceptance of the dissolution and coming renewal phase where employees own the change and take action. It is a time of growth and discovery where thoughts may turn inward to deal with the fear, sadness and loss associated with change. It's also a time for them to develop what is next. It is marked by greater communication and the beginning stages of developing a plan for the future.
With acceptance of the new work environment, Quantum Integrations then assists companies that are merging in creating work teams to assist with issues related to creating a new company. This may include any reorganization of departments and processes, placement of employees within the new structure and assistance with employees that may choose to leave the new company.
21st Century business concepts are based on Principles of a Quantum Organization. What are the principles of a Quantum Organization?
21st Century business Concepts are based on "Quantum Principles", Principles of a Quantum Organization. These principles integrate innovative business concepts of learning and discovery and the key principles and structures of physics and biology.
These principles emphasize the practices of shared vision, innovative learning, collaborative dialogue, performance team building, personal awareness and excellence and systems dynamics.

The organization operating from a larger contribution and an inspirational intent. It is the process of connecting the individual's values, skills, and goals to the corporate vision, evoking commitment and higher performance.
Learning and Discovery:
Exploring and being open to diverse ideas and perspectives. The process of generating innovative products and creating solutions to complex issues is what we would explore. Asking critical questions is a key component of the learning and discovery process. We ask how the actions one takes today affects us seven generations from now. Also, how our actions affect the bottom line, growth and expansion of the organization.
The process of communicating from an objective and compassionate perspective. This entails 3 aspects: Advocacy (speaking from your perspective), Inquiry (asking exploratory questions to understand the perspective of others), and Reflection (examining ones internal thoughts, feelings and perceptions). These tools can transform an environment of defensiveness, resistance and blame into one of trust, self-expression and attentive listening.
Performance Team Building:
Team members working together from alignment, creativity and accountability. This synergistic process is based on shared vision, collaborative dialogue and strategic planning. It includes the natural and spontaneous desire people have to feel connected and in partnership with colleagues, to contribute, and produce exceptional results.
Being guided by a vision. Leading from a clear and effective vision and strategy, links an organization to its natural partners in the broader community. Leaders inspire and empower individuals and groups to be more creative, talented, open and progressive.
The ability to know one's talents, skills, challenges and capabilities. It also has to do with being present and centered, and knowing one's external and internal states of emotions, senses and thoughts. When one is aware their natural intelligence increase and their decisions and actions align up with their vision - versus their ego reactions.
A dedication to vision, creativity, self-generation, focus, organization, risk taking and learning. Focusing on these areas achieves the results one is most passionate about. Personal passion is one of the most powerful forces in an organization. When it is encouraged, an organization can transform itself.
Operating from the whole system, creating and causing long-term solutions. System thinking includes the application of non-linear thinking to improve an organization's understanding of current reality. This creates innovative strategic plans and sustainable systems.
Creating technologies and systems that revitalize and regenerate the earth to ensure the existence of our planet for generations to come. Working to ensure the welfare, equality and respect of all people.
A model for self-organizing, adaptive, thriving systems operating from the principles of physics and biology. We work with inherent laws and patterns by which these organizational systems function. Each organization is a total system, which is dynamic, constantly changing, and either growing or dying. Understanding these principles is critical to the viability of any organization. By working with this model, we develop the best organizational systems that generate maximum productivity.
The old paradigm is where one generates out of survival. Where someone thinks about what will make money, and then attempted to invent something to facilitate that intention. This paradigm has no life or energy because it is not generated from true creation. As a model for doing business, this paradigm is inauthentic and lifeless.
In this new paradigm, one generates out of creativity: where we explore our talents and strengths and what's important to us. We then design products and services within this framework. As we discover these inspired ideas:
they energize us to create business processes that are innovative and successful. In this paradigm, we generate a self-organizing, adaptive, sustainable system that is exciting, productive and profitable.
Most businesses are in survival and working from a mechanistic model versus an alive, innovative model. It is difficult for these businesses to change their ways as there is so much invested in the hierarchical structure in regards to power, control and money. It becomes difficult to move into a structure that is based in alignment, collaboration and true creativity. If businesses are strong enough to shift, here are some techniques and tools it can use to make that transition.
