A purpose driven leadership story

You don’t have to tell people what to do when you start by giving them something to believe in.” Sébastien Sasseville

Sebastien Sasseville built and led high performing teams by creating missions everyone wanted to be a part of: A run across Canada with the intent of inspiring kids, dozens of events,  4 large enterprises sponsoring and hundreds of volunteers; A climb to the top of the world and a campaign designed to empower millions of people.

Ultimately, your ability to lead is directly connected to your ability to inspire. It is when we focus on impact that we build an army. This is how we must create and lead the organizations of the future, with purpose being the lighthouse of all our decisions. What matters most is not how high we climb, but rather the impact we can have on the people we serve.

Sébastien Sasseville helps leaders to lead with purpose, to create engagement and environments where all team members can deliver their best work.  Inspirational, deeply moving and dynamic, Sasseville shares the leadership lessons he learned along the way to build efficient teams who deliver results, who can adapt and show resilience in changing environments.

Sébastien Sasseville, a purpose driven leader

An endurance athlete, his extraordinary accomplishments—which include summiting Mount Everest, completing the mythical Sahara race, and running across Canada—are made all the more impressive by the fact that he lives with Type 1 Diabetes.

Sasseville also spent the first 10 years of his career in sales roles for Fortune 500 organizations.  Sebastien is supported by powerful imagery, unique accomplishments and known for awe-inspiring stories always beautifully connected to leadership. To date, he has helped hundreds of leaders from organizations such as RBC, Johnson & Johnson, Bell, SAP, L’Oreal and Hewitt to lead with purpose and to rise above the clouds when it matters the most.
