Whether you own a company or you head one, you know very well, that there are plenty of reasons why employees may feel dissatisfied with what they do! If you place yourself in your employee’s shoes, you will understand exactly what goes through his/her mind. It happens to every employee! They join your company and are highly enthusiastic about work initially! Motivational speakers term this, as the ‘honeymoon phase.’ A stage when you believe, that you have the perfect employee working for you; and he/she believes, that he/she works for a ‘near perfect’ company! But then ‘honeymoons’ are never meant to last forever, are they?
Telling Signs that Your Employees are Demotivated
The performance and effort of a lot of employees in your company you notice, seems to be dropping! The frequency of their errors and their absenteeism seems to be increasing. It appears that while they are working for your company, they have stopped enjoying what they do! That your employees have started working mechanically and not passionately, eventually, will impact your profitability. Motivational speakers, feel that business heads who find themselves in such a difficult scenario, can find an easy exit! The simple solution to this complex problem according to them, is getting a motivational speaker to boost the morale of your employees!
Causes for Demotivation among Employees
Before addressingthe staff members of a company, motivational speakers usually indulge in some research. Through questions and some analysis, they make themselves aware about- what may be the underlying causes for a lack of eagerness to work, among employees. Making comparisons in terms of pay and perks has been cited, as one of the biggest causes of disgruntlement among those working in a company.
“So, will a salary hike work?” you wonder. Yes, but, can you really afford to give a salary hike, to all your employees every time they seem un-inspired? “Well, a promotion might work?” you reckon. Sure, but, does everyone deserve it? A more effective solution, according to motivational speakers, is to indulge in a session, of what they call- ‘Power Talk.’ A ‘Power Talk’ session is one that is filled with- positivity, appreciation, encouragement and motivation. Motivational speakers usually inundate these, with subtle messages that influence your employees, to not just work harder, but work smarter as well!
Motivational Speakers Have the Ability to Address Issues Subtly and Entertainingly
It is common knowledge today, that the greatest resource any company has is its human resource! It is the quality of human resources that differentiates a good company from a great one. Little wonder then, why so many corporate honchos and top notch multinationals, invest money in motivational sessions for their employees. Speakers addressing these are first briefed on the purpose of the session. Accordingly, they base their talk and presentation, on what kind of message needs to be sent out to the employees of a particular company.
Instead of mundane lectures, motivational speakers use wit, humor, real life anecdotes, entertaining presentations, performances, music and audio visual aids, to subtly and effectively enthuse employees. So, whether it’s performance and efficiency that you are looking to improve in your employees; or simply their inclination to stick with you- these experts know how to deliver!
Powerful Words are Effective Only When Delivered in an Impactful Manner
Words when spoken in an impactful way can boost self confidence, instill hope and bring out powerful emotions in people! According to veterans in the field, there is no problem in this world that cannot be solved by powerful words. However, these words will need to be delivered in the right voice, tone and manner. History has proved time and time again, how ill-equipped and comparatively smaller armies of mentally beaten men, ended up winning the war; simply because their leaders, chose to inspire them with potent words! Motivational speakers often compare armies to the employees who make up a company. The final argument that works in favor of hiring business motivational speakers, as against attempting to do it yourself; is the former’s superior ability and experience, in the sphere of communication.
