If you want to boost your employee’s performance level and reduce employee burnout, hire motivational speaker Derek Clark. His inspirational story and the personal strategies he used to overcome adversity will make a positive impact within your organization’s work culture. Every employee is human and therefore has issues, and at times, brings it into their professional lives. This negativity in the workplace can become contagious. Derek is a firm believer in teaching techniques that will help them deal with their personal issues. If you are questioning the inspiring effect that a keynote speaker can play in your organization, then we will ask the question for you.
Can motivational speakers bring about a significant boost in employee performance level?
There are two major types of employees; the employees who work simply because they need money and those who are driven to reach their potential. The second set of employees are willing to go above and beyond in the interest of your business and as such, productivity will always be at the highest level.
However, one thing you need to understand is that, neither motivation, nor a lack of it comes naturally. This is to say that all hope is not lost if you have employees who are not determined. Consequently, a inspired employee today may lose the motivation if proper care isn’t taken. This is where a motivational speaker comes in; to help maintain a high level of inspiration, which will, in turn, translate into a boost in productivity level. Below are some of the ways an inspiring speaker can help your staff boost their productivity level:
Employees that are inspired take your business to the next level
Can you imagine that “wow!” feeling you would get if a total stranger approached you and started to tell you his inspiring story of overcoming great adversity and it deeply connected with you personally? That’s the exact effect an inspiring keynote speaker would have on your staff when he or she begins to connect with their emotions by sharing stories that the audience can relate to. For the mere fact that a “stranger” (remember the speaker isn’t affiliated with your company in any way) seems to know how trials and adversity are affecting them, they’ll then listen attentively to whatever he/she has to say. That’s where the magic is. Since employees can relate to some part of Derek’s inspiring life of overcoming brutal adversity, they’ll feel inspired because they’ve just been told by someone who’s “been there,” that there’s a way out. In the end, people want to win the battle, and they are inspired to see it through.
Professional speakers have a wealth of knowledge that they get from years of experience and voracious reading. They fully understand the needs of the business and as such, can connect seamlessly with all the members of staff.
One major edge a professional speaker has is the fact that they are “foreign bodies”, foreign bodies, as in the sense that they are not part of the company. At times, being part of the business automatically blinds your eyes to some key observations because you’ve gotten so used to routines that some anomalies have actually started looking normal in your eyes. As an external observer, Derek has the opportunity to examine the whole situation on the bigger screen and will be in a better position to advise the staff from a different angle. With that external view, the Derek can also give an assessment of how the company is performing.
One of the primary causes of employee burnout is the “unimportant” feeling they tend to get at times. In many cases, some workers might be consistently giving their absolute best to the company, and the employers don’t even seem to notice they exist. You can’t blame them after all; everybody wants to be seen as important and appreciated. Telling your employees how important they are to you would be a great way to start. Another way would be to hire Derek to remind them that you appreciate them and do honor their service to your company.
Create a stronger company and healthier workplace
Some companies fail whenever they have team assignments simply because all the members of staff are mere “familiar strangers”. They may share the same work environment, yet they barely have time to relate and build team spirit. Every other day, each person is too busy with their duties to meet the other, and even when they meet, it’s at official meetings.
Inviting a motivational speaker to deliver a speech to your employees creates the perfect opportunity for them to meet in a more relaxed environment. During the short breaks in-between, they can share ideas and discuss the overall situation of the company.
By hiring Derek Clark, you’ll be helping your business in more ways than you can ever imagine. With the right speaker doing the talking and motivating, you’ll find that your employees will become more zealous towards work and that would, in turn, take your business to greater heights.
