I Believe

“Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them.” – Brene Brown

About Brenda Descamps

I am recognized as an accomplished executive/leadership coach, leadership development consultant, speaker, and facilitator. I know people and business, and help leaders grow as they get results through others. I enjoy the challenge of assisting senior leadership with finding the right people to do the right things at the right times.  

With 20 years of experience developing leaders, I have worked with a wide-variety of businesses and industries throughout the United States in the areas of leadership development, coaching, customer service, conflict resolution, succession planning, problem solving, behavioral interviewing, and diversity. I am well-known for my ability to assist senior leadership to identify and develop high-potential talent and improve performance.  As the CEO of Performance Concepts, Inc., my husband, Michael and I, provide excellent learning opportunities both in the classroom and online options along with teambuilding, individual coaching, and group coaching activities.  

Whether in business or in life, I am passionate about collaborative communication and empowering people to forge their own path of success. Because of this Performance Concepts, Inc., partners with a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in individual and family therapy. This partnership differentiates us from the typical Learning and Development Consultant and is powerful for the overall well-being of our clients.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Missouri State University in Organizational Communication and Journalism.  I am a Board Certified Executive/Leadership/ Business Coach, MBTI® Master Practitioner, FIRO-B Practitioner, Six Sigma Green Belt, Development Dimensions International Facilitator, and Everything DiSC Facilitator.

Referred by some coaching clients as a "relationship genius,"  I enjoy bringing people together and creating insight on ways to improve their organization.  It is through these opportunities employee engagement increases along with productivity and profitability.  I work hard to create a safe environment built on a foundation of trust, honesty, and transparency.  Whether coaching or in the classroom, individuals will learn and grow when placed in an environment conducive to change. It is through this lens the individual has the ability to see the truth.

What Would Brenda Do?

Women dealing with work related stress

"To say that Brenda Descamps changed my career would be an understatement. Brenda came into my organization at a time when I was struggling as a leader. It was my first real leadership role, the new had worn off and I was frustrated, burnt out and actively looking for a way out. Brenda quickly and strategically earned my trust (I later learned that this was due to her expertise in Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type) which was no easy feat at that point. She was able to use her knowledge and experience to determine the best way to re-inspire my passion for leadership and approach me in a way that was specific to my needs. Not the needs of the group, not the needs of the majority, but Brenda personalized her approach to my needs, and allowed me to again be of value to the group and to drive the performance of the organization. She provided me with strategic learning opportunities and challenges that were tough and inspirational and she certainly did not hesitate to provide me tough feedback when I needed it! In her own words, “like a shot of Jack Daniels with a Coke back;” she had solidly earned my trust which caused me to be receptive to a tough message and to implement her feedback even if I didn’t like it or agree at first. more

Brenda and I haven’t officially worked together for over 5 years, and she still is my first thought when I approach a tough leadership situation. “What would Brenda do,” is a consistent theme in my thoughts. She has continued to be a mentor for me and is always a call or text away when I have a question. Brenda has inspired my career outside of our work together and inspired me to lead my teams in a way that approaches their individual needs to allow them to reach their fullest performance and career potential. Without a doubt, Brenda has shaped my career for the better and provided the coaching I needed to help me shape the careers of others." ~ Jacci Carey, Manager,Lodging Content | Global Supply Operations
