What Eric Saperston Talks About:

Eric Saperston helps individuals and organizations go from great to extraordinary. After 25 years studying the common traits of top visionaries around the world, Eric discovered the most salient commonality of these extraordinary leaders – that they all live in wonder. They approach life and work with a sense of curiosity, awe, gratitude – and life-long learning.

When your employees begin to experience their worklife through the lens of wonder, it unlocks human potential, advances communication, inspires innovation – and opens up new pathways for success. Teams, who adopt wonder in the workplace, are more enthusiastic, high functioning – and push the boundaries of what they think is possible.

Wonder enhances the emotional health of an organization enabling individuals and businesses to thrive and produce extraordinary results.

Here’s a little backstory: Driven by the adage, “To know the road ahead – ask those coming back.” Eric wanted to better understand the common traits, motivating factors – and guiding principles which enable everyday people to live extraordinary lives.

With that premise, Saperston hit the open road, living in his Volkswagen bus, selling grilled cheese sandwiches at rest stops – while cold calling the most successful people in the world and taking them out for cup of coffee.

Through humble beginnings and a genuine desire to learn from wise elders, led Eric to interview thousands of business leaders, pioneers, visionaries, rockstars and legends – and to become the leadership expert he is today. For the last two decades, top tier industry leaders have trusted Eric to share his refreshing blend of leadership lessons and teambuilding experiences to audiences around the globe – inspiring millions of people to live more fulfilling and meaningful lives.
