Your ability to lead is directly connected to your ability to inspire.

Leaders know that what matters most is not how high they climb, but rather how many people they bring with them. Leadership means to build trust and to help others grow. When a candle lights another one it loses nothing, but the whole room becomes a lot brighter.

True leadership also means to provide a safe environment where team members can fail with success. Leaders know that flexibility is not a response to failure. It is a strategy for success.  True leadership means to not only reward employees on numbers, but on the creation, implementation and nurture of growth habits that support the core goals and mission of the enterprise. Sales, finish lines, summits and results will inevitably follow. Help people grow, you’ll help your organization grow.

A 7,200 kilometer run. 5 marathons a week for over 9 months. A start in the worst winter Eastern Canada had experienced in 20 years. One ice bath after each run. It took Sébastien Sasseville almost a year to run across Canada. After each daily marathon, Sebastien found the energy and drive to work on what he affectionately called “the second shift” and lead a team comprised of a PR firm, a documentary crew, sponsors and ground logistics.  Where was the energy from? “I had a strong reason why” he simply says.
