Whether you are a CEO, head of department, manager or team member the workplace always needs upliftment to get through the week. Especially during mid year, employees are tired and may need some inspiration.
If you are given the opportunity to be an inspirational motivational speaker for your team, know how to do it properly and with enthusiasm. The point is to boost and lift up the team, so they move out of their complacent mindsets to becoming excited about doing their work. To do this you need to provide with a reason as to why this will benefit them in the long run. The next step is to show there place in the company and how everyone is contributing to company goals. Employees need to feel special and that they are making a difference in the workplace. Finally, if a team is really not co-operating add an incentive that employees and teams can work towards.
Respect is a very important aspect to cover in your motivational speech. Employees should be respected in the workplace. If that means being acknowledged for achieving a goal or simply being treated as if they are important. Recognising the talent in the team and mentioning some names of people that went beyond the call of duty can be very encouraging. IT also shows that you are grateful for what has been done.
In your speech bring up topics that your staff has mentioned to you. This shows that you are listening and taking note of it.
If people understand the impact of a great motivational speech it could take their team further than they every thought was possible.
