Eric Deschamps's Experience:
Lead Coach, General Manager at Rhapsody Strategies Inc.June 2014
Throughout my career I've always sought to inspire individuals and organizations to reject mediocrity and reach for greatness. Clients come to me because they're stuck. Regardless of what's holding them back, they want to get better results and break through to new levels of impact and success. I'm fueled by a passion to help people achieve their full potential and make a significant impact on the world around them. And I'm at my bestwhen engaged in honest, courageous conversations about personal and organizational transformation. When people are willing to be honest and authentic, willing to take action to bring about positive change, their organizations can achieve powerful, transformational results. The greatest compliment I've had from a client is, "I can't talk to anyone else about this stuff. You really get me." What a sacred trust! That's why the greatest privilege in the work I do is hearing people's stories. Behind every business is an individual or a group that really wants to do something special. They have dreams and aspirations of building something meaningful, making a difference for their clients, and providing a great life for their family. I have the privilege of being invited into their story and helping them achieve it. Powerful stuff! My best piece of business advice? Get clear on who you are and why your business exists, and let that sense of purpose guide every decision you make. Make your mission your North Star. That amount of focus will lead to incredible results, and will place you among the top performers and influencers in your industry.
