A powerful motivational keynote on change.

Within companies and organizations, those who resist change don’t last. When confronted to the strongest forces of nature, great lessons are learned. Supported by superb imagery and breathtaking stories, change management speaker Sebastien Sasseville maries inspiration with business. He helps his audience to understand that change is a culture, not an action. Change must not be used like cough syrup, in other words “only when it hurts”. Instead, change must be viewed as a culture, a daily practice. To get comfortable with change is great, but to really take things to the next level, we must leverage change, create it and use it as a force to increase our capacity for agility. Sometimes, if you are adapting to change, you’ve lost the game already. When we are agile, we utilize change, rather than being reactive and dictated by change. Successful businesses and individuals create change. They set the tone and force their competition to adapt. The most powerful step on Everest wasn’t the last step, it was the first step. To transform ourselves sometimes also starts with finding the courage to cross our starting lines and embrace discomfort.
