It’s never easy to inspire and motivate people, especially in a way that leads directly to positive change, but when Clementine speaks that’s exactly what she accomplishes. Organizations, businesses, churches, and schools around the world have relied on her to reenergize their audiences.
Gifted with an impactful triumvirate that makes people think, feel and act, she’s been described as captivating, evocative, and transformational. Her powerful message shifts listeners’ focus away from what they can do for themselves towards how they can positively impact the people who surround them, both professionally and personally.
Hard to fathom but — although she survived the genocide in Rwanda in 1994 when she was eight years old — today she’s described as, “pure power and joy.” In the same way that Holocaust survivor Victor Frankl felt called to write, Man’s Search for Meaning, Clementine has dedicated her life to showing people how their worst experiences can become the cornerstone of a happy, fulfilling, and purposeful life.
Ironically, the tragedy that almost killed her later unearthed her personal power and today she helps others find theirs. People get stuck. They come to work carrying emotional burdens or coping with physical pain. An organization can create a peaceful physical environment and implement values and vision to shape a positive corporate culture, but they can’t tackle the internal struggles that prevent employees from working at full capacity or cultivating positive relationships.
What’s needed is that ah-ha! moment where people contextualize their challenges in relation to debilitating adversity and realize I can do this! Whether an individual’s adversity is as tragic as fleeing a war-ravaged country or the stress of dealing with a child’s illness, they share the same need to find the inner strength and fortitude to keep moving forward.
