Motivational on teamwork: I will help you build a stronger team

The view from the top is better when shared. Sebastien Sasseville is one of the most inspiring motivational speaker on teamwork and collaboration. His presentations are loaded with practical tools to help promote collaboration within organizations so that we can reach the top, as a team.

When Sébastien Sasseville climbed Mount Everest and ran across Canada, he had to rally a team around his dream by demonstrating that it had value for everyone. The secret to his success? A strong, united team with a clear mission that served the interests of the entire group.

Motivational Keynote on Teamwork
Motivational Keynote on TeamworkA team is not a group of people who share tasks. A team is a group that allows each of its members to shine everyday. Sebastien Sasseville & Patrick St-Martin, filmed during the run across Canada.

Using your strengths

A team that gets results is one in which members use their strengths each and every day.

During his cross-country run, Sébastien had a small ground crew composed of only himself and his logistics manager, Patrick St-Martin. Together, they managed dozens of people who helped make the journey a success. Sébastien and Patrick capitalized on their strengths to create a powerful partnership. A team is not merely a group of people who share work. It is a group that allows each member to reach his or her potential. And employees who reach their potential are happier, more efficient and ultimately more loyal.

Roles and psychological safety

Whether in suits or work boots, success is only attainable as a team. Not only do you need to know your role, you should also know the roles of everyone on your team so that you can help when the time comes. On Mount Everest, knowing your role and working together are guarantors of success… and survival. The same is true in a competitive corporate environment. If we want to survive, we need to work together.

Effective teams know how to create a climate of psychological safety. Each member must feel that they have room to fail, that they can share their mistakes, so that the team can learn from them.

Diversity and collective strength

Sébastien climbed Mount Everest with the help of an unusual team: an amputee, a 71-year-old man, a Type 1 diabetic (Sébastien), a mountaineer with Crohn’s disease… and one team member without any health problems. But together, the team was able to turn these individual weaknesses into collective strength. Teamwork is about exposing your weaknesses. Because of these weaknesses, Sébastien and his team took more time to prepare and communicated more effectively, sharing information that was vital to the team’s success and safety. And the team was stronger for it.

Working together to achieve a common goal

A rising tide lifts all boats. For a team to be successful, the mission must be more important than individual success. Performance improves when team members work together, share information and prioritize the success of the organization.
