Diriger par contexte et non par contrôle — l’approche de Marc-André Campagna

L’histoire de Marc-André Campagna (alias Marc), est plutôt normale, enfin, jusqu’à ce qu’on arrive à la partie oxio.

D’abord, les bases. Marc est né à Baie-Comeau (si vous ne savez pas où c’est, c’est au nord-est de la ville de Québec —environ 420 km au nord-est), un petit village de 21 000 habitants, et a grandi à Québec. Il a étudié le droit à l’Université Laval, a abandonné ses études et a fondé Accès Télécom avec Francis Careau. Ensemble, ils ont transformé Accès Télécom en oxio.

Aujourd’hui, Marc passe son temps entre Québec, Montréal et San Francisco. Lorsqu’il ne travaille pas, il est probablement en train de courir (au sens propre et figuré) dans un endroit aussi éloigné que possible de la ville.

Marc mange régulièrement du houmous et donne l’exemple lorsqu’il s’agit de rester fidèle à soi-même. Pour Marc, il n’y a pas de « moi au travail » et de « moi à la maison », il en a d’ailleurs assez de cette façon de penser. Le travail est juste une autre partie de la vie. C’est pourquoi la culture d’oxio est axée sur l’intégration de la vie professionnelle et de la vie privée : il s’agit de faire preuve d’empathie envers les autres parties de notre être et de créer des moyens de les soutenir.

L’ambiance décontractée de Marc vous met à l’aise. Il veut apprendre à connaître les gens qui l’entourent et fait de son mieux pour que vous puissiez facilement entrer en contact avec lui. Résolveur de problèmes, Marc lit beaucoup et vit pour le débat honnête et intelligent — tout ce qui permet d’améliorer les choses.

En d’autres termes, ne soyez pas timide avec ce type, soyez simplement ouvert, franc et réceptif à des commentaires honnêtes.
