Motivational Speaking and Motivation for Life by Doug Dvorak
"As a Professional Motivational Speaker, I believe that Motivation is the Software of the Soul." My company, Dvorak Marketing Group, helps clients improve their bottom line and life through the use of motivational speaking workshops and motivational keynote presentations. Motivational speakers are in demand in today’s hyper- competitive business environment. Any endeavor in a business environment requires actions and reactions involved in getting things done through others and have motivational implications. Getting these motivational factors right can make the difference between getting the tasks or business done effectively or ineffectively, productively or unproductively, with co-operation or without co-operation. This is where a seasoned motivational speaker can assist in getting the team focused on the task at hand. The subject of Motivational Speaking and Motivation may seem complex and contain some ambiguity, however, it is extremely important for managers and for the company as a whole to get this aspect of motivational speaking and management right. For the new manager or for managers who have not studied motivational speaking or management concepts before, and motivation in particular, motivational speakers can provide insight into human behavior. My thoughts and experiences on motivational speaking will hopefully challenge your thinking as it relates to motivational speaking and lead you to arrive at an understanding and a personalized approach to motivation, the motivational speaker as a management tool and resource and the development of your own motivational speaking and management style. It is extremely important to consider how we interact with others and the impact motivational speakers have on our behavior and values. Some managers seem to have a track record of success, but a glance under the surface reveals that they are despised by many and have cost the company significantly, this is where a professional motivational speaker can possibly help stop people from leaving the company, reversing lost opportunities and increasing performance. However, other managers seem to have a laid-back approach when it comes to hiring a motivational speaker. Motivational Speakers are highly regarded by all who have had the opportunity to hear them speak. Many employees readily acknowledge after hearing a motivational speaker that they feel better mentally and are more productive at work and home. Managers can study these variations of attitude which occur in individuals after hiring a motivational speaker, the results are fascinating. Understanding why this is so and adapting the positives is essential for managers after the motivational speaker program is over. Motivation of people is a difficult business, influenced by a myriad of psychological and environmental factors which alter from person to person, from company to company and from manager to manager. This is why it is critical to hire a competent motivational speaker. Some motivational speakers are amateurish in their approach to the motivational speaking business, but the motivational speaking business is a serious business for seasoned motivational speaking professionals. If you looked up the definition of a ‘motivator’ in Webster’s Dictionary, it states: a need which acts as a driving force causing a person to try to achieve a particular result. Motivational Speakers help people to achieve a particular result. Motivational speakers don’t cost, they pay dividends!!
