Two or three other words… just to understand, not only his background, but most importantly, a part of his values and philosophy.
It’s important to start with his Grandfather. All his professional life, he was a skilled worker. He was working on a mechanical press which formed sheet metal for making the bonnet of Renault cars. You can imagine the noise. It was incredible.
The general conditions of work were very, very difficult.
Perhaps, one of the best examples of these conditions, if we consider the philosophical point of view, could be found in The Myth of Sisyphus, a philosophical essay by Albert Camus which was published originally in 1942 in French as Le Mythe de Sisyphe.
6 days per week, all the weeks of the year, all the years of his professional life, his Grandfather, like millions of workers like him, has rolled his rock to the top of the mountain. And at the top, the rock descended the mountain. And the next day, he began again. We can imagine the workers happy, because at this time the work had a sense for them.
When his grandfather’s son, who was to be his father, was seven years old, he took him one day to the factory. His father was literally traumatized by the noise.
His father understood that day, if he wanted to avoid this destiny, only studies could save him.
But with parents who were simple workers, who had little education, it was very difficult to study. And when he missed the “Baccalaureat” (the first important degree in France), his parents told him: “Stop”, and said: “Now, you must earn your living; you will go to work in a factory.”
So when Loïck was born, his own idea was to avoid him having to follow the same path.
Certainly this past of his family story could explain why Loïck could follow his studies, why he could obtain several degrees… Why his concerns, are around education, psychological concepts and so on.
This also surely explains why now Loïck occupy his different functions in a graduate school of business.
This also explains why he is convinced that teams can win, why teams can be the best, even if initially they do not have the best people nor the best tools and resources to succeed. Loïck believe in the will, in the work, in the management, and therefore in the progress of men and women, in the progress and performance of organizations.
