Keynote Speakers in Orlando Florida

Keynote Speaker in Orlando, Florida Bolsters Company Morale

A lot of companies and managers are looking for ways to motivate and excite employees who are overworked, tired, scared—or all of the above. As a keynote speaker in Orlando, Florida, I worked to fire up a team that felt demoralized and lacked energy after several recent transitions that had left employees anxious about their future with the company.

Hiring a motivational speaker was exactly the right move for this business. In this company, I first spoke to executives and managers on how they can reassure and empower employees. For example, they needed to be more transparent about changes that were happening so employees would trust them. That way, employees could also help manage the change, building the sense of all being on the same team. Executive presence isn’t about intimidating people—it’s about inspiring that level of trust and comradery, as I emphasize in my program titled “Executive Presence: Four Ways to Convey Confidence and Command Respect as a Leader.”

In the keynote I gave at an annual event held by the company, I shared some principles that all employees should live by, including the following.

  • See yourself as a gift. Everyone has talents, but how many people know how to fully express those talents on the job? People go along to get along in today’s workplace, letting the fear factor hold them back from showing who they really are. This robs them of job satisfaction and robs the company of potentially exceptional performers. In my talks, I teach them to assess their own strengths and unlock their full potential.
  • Create work-life balance. Long hours and work overload might well be the curse of the working class. I teach employees how to double their productivity by creating balance between work, play, family time, and self-care. Setting priorities, managing information overload, and delegating mundane tasks are just a few of the skills your employees will learn. These strategies will help keep stress in check so your team can manage the inevitable hurdles it faces.
  • Perception is reality. Success depends largely on how others perceive us. That’s why I teach people how to assess their own strengths and weaknesses so they can instill positive perceptions among their managers and coworkers. By learning to ask for and use constructive feedback, they’ll turn negatives into positives and communicate their successes to others.
  • Confidence creates leadership. Most people are not born with executive presence—it’s a skill they must learn. I will teach your employees how to take initiative, assume greater responsibility, and become significant contributors to the company’s bottom line. Presenting concepts from my highly-acclaimed book Executive Presence, I’ll lay out a simple plan to help employees grow into strategic thinkers with the confidence they need to reach the top.

This keynote speech showed employees at this Orlando company that management was so committed to their growth that it had hired a top motivational speaker for them. As a result, they stopped fearing for their jobs and started taking initiative. They went after ambitious goals and focused on their strengths instead of their weaknesses. That’s how a skilled motivational speaker can help a company move through its roadblocks and challenges.

Whether you need a keynote speaker for an event in Orlando, Florida, or anywhere else in North America, a motivational speaker will fire up your employees to get proactive about their success. Instead of settling for good, give your organization exceptional value.
