There is always something in human nature that gravitates towards beauty, truth, and purpose. Discontentment and unhappiness set in if aperson does not get his fill on all three. His life has to have a sense of purpose or direction. His life has to have beauty and meaning. He must also know certain truths in order to understand life and the world. In the absence of one of these, he will feel that he was born to suffer—to suffer in his meaninglessness, ignorance, and squalor.
It is easy to feel that life has no purpose or meaning. It is also easy to find ugliness in the world. Working eight to ten hours a day doing the same thing over and over can always make one feel the aimlessness of life. However, businesses require tasks to be done according to what they require. Employees are therefore always required to do what is asked and assigned. A majority of people in the rank and file may find it demoralizing that they have to do the same things over and over when perhaps new technology can be devised to take their place. The task may kill their creativity and dull their intelligence if it is too repetitive and does not require intellect.
Even members of management may feel the same way if the procedures and protocol do not call for their initiative and participation.
Low morale in the workplace can be very contagious. If it spreads, people lose their focus on their work. Some may think of leaving their jobs. Others will be in despair thinking of their unfortunate fate. A work environment with such low spirits will mean low productivity and quality. Once this is identified, companies must act to lift the spirits of its employees, otherwise, the business will suffer.
Companies benefit a lot from hiring motivational speakers to boost the morale of their employees. Motivational speakers are effective in doing this.
Here are the reasons why:
They give them hope.
It is too easy for employees to feel stuck in their present jobs and career paths. Doing the same job over and over again for years may start to feel that one is not getting any progress. However, motivational speakers will tell employees about the power of compounding. If one has served over the years and has endured stressful situations at work, that person has more in terms of knowledge, experience, and character. Therefore, although a person may feel stuck, he is actually a work in progress—ready for bigger things.
They tell employees that there are many ways to grow. They encourage employees to do their jobs excellently because it stretches them and they become more capable of taking greater responsibilities.
They radiate positivity.
Motivational speakers radiate positive energy. They tell their audience that they too can have it if they think positive thoughts. They explain that thinking positive thoughts mean counting one’s blessings and having the faith to overcome problems. Some speakers even appeal to religious beliefs to bring home this point. In order not to be overcome by negativity is to have faith that problems and even misfortune can be overcome.
They emphasize altruism.
Corporate culture is tough. There are companies where aspirants to climbing the corporate ladder believe that to succeed will mean eradicating their competition and enemies at all costs. One must be tough enough to ignore or quiet his conscience in order to fulfill his dream. This creates an environment that is rife with tension and conflict.
Motivational speakers are very good at emphasizing that in order to succeed, one must give what one wishes to obtain. Therefore, if one must climb the corporate ladder, he must also help and lift others to climb it. They bring back the faith that ethical practice, in the end, still wins.
They are truly excellent in empowering and motivating employees. They teach people to look for the beauty and purpose in their lives. They also remind people of certain truths that seem to have been forgotten.
