Importance of Motivation in Current Business Environment – a Motivational-Speaker-Success guide

Motivation comes in two different forms, intrinsic and extrinsic. Both of them are specifically applied in different situations and for different individuals. Surely, one might argue that motivation is not as important, though looking at it from a different perspective, it becomes clear that it plays a critical role in any organization, which is essentially what we at Motivational-Speaker-Success, will be talking about.

To begin with, prior stating how motivation can be utilized to your advantage, it is of utmost importance to define what motivation is. Thus, motivation is a process where an individual is driven by internal or external factors. There are two core types of motivation, intrinsic and extrinsic and all of them are very specific when it comes to application. An extrinsic motivational strategy is a form of motivation that is heavily applied when an employee is only motivated by monetary reward, while intrinsic motivational strategies are applied only when a person is driven by the process. In other words, people that love their work, will be motivated by a speech, presentation or plan.

Indeed, here at Motivational-Speaker-Success, we are constantly trying to define what type of motivation could work better for one or another situation. Though, it has proven to be a difficult topic due to the fact that people are different and it hard to determine what type of strategy should be applied. However, despite this particular implication, there are several solutions that will not only solve given issue but provide a better understanding of the whole topic.

Clearly, a decent speech will not only motivate employees but will ensure quality as well, which is essentially what our staff at Motivational-Speaker-Success is trying to prove. If an employee or even a crowd of employees are sitting with little to no motivation, high quality can not be expected, as a matter of fact, nothing good can be expected. Poor performance, extended deadlines and even drop of quality are all due to lack of motivation. Putting all this into a long term perspective, the company will not only layoff majority of their staff but will most likely end in bankruptcy.

Another issue that comes with lack of motivation, is that employees will not do their best

To be specific, employees will most likely be more interested in leaving their workplace as soon as possible, coupled with poor performance, the company, regardless of nature of activities (I.e for profit or non-profit) will lose their clients. Speaking of clients, if the majority of consumers will end up abandoning the product or service, stakeholders and shareholders will most likely leave the company as well since it is not profitable.

We at Motivational-Speaker-Success, received several questions regarding on how to conduct a proper speech. The answer was more than simple, you need to know what your employees are looking for. Identification of needs will secure long-term relationships between the company and employees. Thus, to begin with, each speech, should not only be based on employees needs and expectations but should feature strong keywords. Indeed, keywords play a critical role in any speech since they can be considered as triggers that make a heavy emphasis on the subject and its matter.

Moving on forward, each speech should be written with Expectancy Theory in mind

The theory itself synopses the relation workers anticipate between endeavor and payoff. If a worker performs especially well, dedicates all of his will towards the task,  they will most likely be waiting for a great reward. Putting this into perspective, when an employee outperformed himself by doing double the amount of work needed, he will definitely expect praise, or as a matter of fact doubled salary. Thus, during that particular speech, it would be critical to notice this particular achievement, as well as, what reward that particular employee received.

 

This will not only motivate the person but end up motivating other employees due to the fact that they will most likely feel inferior to that particular person. Indeed, this might sound a bit harsh, but it is true and managers, facilitators, supervisors should account this and use it to their advantage. Another aspect that should be present in a motivational speech is a personal experience. True, it might sound inappropriate, though we at Motivational-Speaker-Success, will and forever will be proving this statement wrong due to the fact that the influence and relation a great motivational utterer conveys to the mass is always coupled with a personal story.

All in all, motivation is key to success for any organization and organizations that neglect this particular issue, end up, losing revenue, employees, and quality. Thus, the bottom line of given article is to once again prove, that motivational theories are important and should not be excluded by anyone.
