Thoughts on Positive Leadership

Why the Best Inspirational Speakers Win Your Heart and Change Your Life

Great speaking is not about being the best. You can be the world champion of public speaking, but true speaking is not a contest based on technical speaking skills. In my book, the best inspirational speakers are those who win your hearts and change your lives.

Great speaking is about your being genuine. When you go up there on stage, people want to know who you are and what connects you and need. They want to see you and not a made up speaker. They want to hear your stories. They want to be connected with a genuine person, not an imitation.

I created this for you.

I publish this website for my friends. Either you are one now -- or you'll be my future friend.

It would be nice to meet you and have a friendly conversation, but that’s not always possible. I imagined you when I write. It is not easy to write, but it is easy to know why I need to write. I know that when you visit this website, you are looking for something — and I want to be of help.

It might be you want to start something. A business maybe -- or a new project.

It might be your job requires you to speak and present frequently – and you have fear in public speaking and you want someone with expertise to teach you to speak with confidence and conviction.

It might be you have just been promoted to a leadership role and you want to enrol yourself in leadership training programs.

It might be that an HR Manager, you want to initiate a corporate-wide personal development program and you want to get sound advice on how you begin and build momentum.

It might be you have been assigned to lead your team building exercises, you do not know how facilitate, and you are looking for some good advice on how to facilitate right.

Or it might be you are looking for a team building facilitator -- and your friends recommended that you look for Jef Menguin because he did great work for them.

It might be you worry about employees who lack commitment, who avoid accountability, and who do not pay attention to results -- and you are looking for a consultant who can help you design training programs to turn things around.

And it might be your boss asked you to look for training programs in personal development, stress management, time management, supervisory skills, management skills, trainer the trainer – and you are looking for tailor-fit programs or public seminars given your limited budget.

It might be because you are looking for a keynote speaker who can talk about excellence, leadership, customer service, teamwork, and Filipino values. Or it might be your managers are not motivating enough and you are looking for a professional speaker who can show how to improve performance by keeping your people motivated.

It might be your people are performing well and they are good in everything they do -- but you do not want them to grow complacent, and you want to to move your company from good to great.

It might be you aspire to become a professional speaker yourself. It might be you are looking for inspiration... you want to become a remarkable leader, salesman, teacher, trainer, public servants, et cetera.

I write because you want simple answers and you expect better results.

Yes, though I do not know why you showed up here. I hope you'll get your questions answered, be inspired, be equipped, be enabled...and be my loyal friend.

"I publish this as a tool to inspire everyone about a better future that you and I could really care about"

I publish this website for my son.

He's growing -- and anytime soon he'll be able to read, understand, and search for meaning.

Like many of your young minds today, he might be asking for ways on how to get rich quick. Or how to lead teams. Or how to inspire people. Or how to become a better person.

He will find me in my journals, in the early manuscripts of my speeches and seminars and through this website. He will be able to use my ideas to have a better life. And become a better person!

These ideas are seeds for the future. Not all are good seeds, but the good seeds he’ll be able to use. I do not want to bring these ideas to my grave.

Some of these ideas will make him very rich. Others will make him become confident and important. Others will make him realize that life isn’t fair — and that’s not a bad thing. And most importantly, he will realize that he can choose happiness — and he can create happiness for himself and others.

I will also provide him some of the tools that I used and am learning to use. The tools I will not be able to master, he will reinvent. There are always great ideas; but some great ideas will be recognized and used when the right time comes. In my writing, he will know which ideas were planted, which ideas died, and which ideas are waiting for the right time.

Finally, I publish this for Jef Menguin.

Writing helps me examine my beliefs and forces me to question my ideas. I do not write because I have great ideas. I develop great ideas because I think.

And I make my thoughts visible through writing, sketching, and conversations, and public speaking.

Writing is closest to thinking.

Let's create a better future YOU and I really care about.

This website is created with a sense of urgency. I believe that you and I deserve the best in the world. We do not have to wait for others. We do not have to wait until we are ready. Waiting wastes time. I am not happy with the status quo — and I believe most of us are not happy too.

I offer to you my experiences. Let us help each other create a better future really care about. Let's speak possibilities. Let's be possibilities.
