The Best Employee Motivator Can Be a Keynote Speaker

Why a Keynote Speaker Is a Good Motivator for Your Employees

Hiring a keynote speaker who is a great motivator might be the best investment you can make for your company. A good keynote speaker will motivate your employees to do their best work and enhance corporate team-building, so it is well worth the investment to hire one to speak at your conference or special event.

In my talks such as “Release Untapped Potential of Your Underutilized Leaders” and “The Invisible Leaders: How to Find Them and Help Them Shine,” I delve into how to unleash the full potential of your people. Whether you want to prime employees for future leadership opportunities, or to fire up your current leaders to reach new heights of excellence, my keynote speeches and training programs will deliver maximum value.

Here are five reasons to hire a keynote speaker with a reputation as a great motivator:

  1. To refocus employee perspectives.

    Everybody needs a break, and although staff vacations are a great way for employees to relax and return with renewed energy, you need a way to keep employee morale high year-round. Keep your staff motivated by offering regular inspirational seminars to provide a breath of fresh air. Topics can include everything from work/life balance to time-management training. Periodically survey employees and managers to find out which topic they most need to hear about.

  2. To motivate and excite your employees.

    If you’ve notice that rewards and incentive programs aren’t working, a keynote speaker can provide a jolt of motivation to help reignite old passion. When money fails to be a motivator, a motivational speaker can help employees find the enthusiasm they’ve buried inside and get them to take pride in their jobs again. Using motivational stories on sports, family life, or other topics, the speaker can help the audience grasp important concepts.

  3. To provide continuous training.

    Keep your staff motivated by offering continuous leadership development training on topics that interest them. A one-time training event with no follow-up might fizzle out in a few weeks and you might not see long-term results. Leadership training by a professional keynote speaker and master motivator packed with hands-on tools, an action plan, and powerful resources is critical to keep employees on their toes, ready to take action.

  4. To make them feel important.

    A big part of retaining employees is to keep them happy by making them feel important. Hiring a speaker can show that you value your staff and consider them worthy enough to invest in them and provide them with the best in the industry. A speaker who shares tools for growing their perception, visibility, and other core competencies will show your commitment to their growth.

  5. You’ve run out of ideas.

    Have you tried everything to motivate your people, but with dismal results? Admitting that your ideas on employee motivation may be limited is the first step to reaching out for help. The fresh ideas and expertise offered by a motivational leadership trainer might be just what you need to turn things around in your company.

In my talks and trainings, I strive to ignite long-term change. I help employees create a customized plan for growth, giving them pointers on how to follow through. I also offer continued executive coaching to maximize the return on your investment.
