Employee performance metrics dropped last month. Without hesitation, managers said that the cause is a lack of motivation.
And everyone nodded in agreement.
Lack of motivation is the safest alibi. It is safer to say that people lack motivation than to say that the leader lacks the skill to lead.
It is easier to say that employees need a tap on the back than to say that managers need to set a clear and compelling direction.
FAQs on Motivational Speaking
A motivational speaker is either an amateur or a professional speaker who delivers talks to motivate people. Typically they tell stories of their struggles and their successes as examples to others. It is said that the first motivational speaker was Mark Twain. Some of the famous motivational speakers today are Les Brown, Tony Robbins, John Maxwell, and Lisa Nichols.
Many motivational speakers claim that they are the best in the Philippines. Since there are no awards given to motivational speakers, we can say that the claim is for marketing purposes only. Internet marketing has promoted many motivational speakers into celebrity status.
To some extent, all of us have the power to move people to action. If motivational speakers move people through stories, then teachers, pastors, trainers, and other speakers can also be considered motivational speakers. What is evident, however, is that those who pay to watch motivational speakers are already motivated. But whether their motivation can make them achieve is not certain.
This is because the most powerful kind of motivation is intrinsic. Most motivational speakers can talk only about extrinsic rewards.
Yes, I have signature talks. Great ideas must be shared. But a signature talk doesn’t have to be a canned talk. That won’t help. Each group of listeners lives in different contexts. Stories and examples and call to action must be tailored-fit to their needs. I talk about personal excellence, intrapreneurship, and developing a growth mindset.
Managers in the Philippines hire motivational speakers because they believe that many employees lack motivation. This is wrong. Motivational speakers cannot create nor inject motivation. What managers can do is to discover the motivations of employees. Then, they can think of ways to align employee motivations to corporate motivations.
Based on this, they can hire motivational speakers whose messages support business objectives. Obviously, many motivational speakers deliver canned messages to all kinds of audiences. And you must have heard of their messages everywhere. They won’t have much impact.
There are motivational speakers in the Philippines who can speak for more than three hours. There are motivational speakers who host retreats for two days. And there are those who can speak anytime anywhere.
A compelling story can be delivered for ten minutes. A story can teach, inspire, and mobilize people. Then, if the speaker can provide specific steps that listeners can use, a motivational speech of 40 to 60 minutes is good.
There are motivational speakers in the Philippines who can speak for free. There are those who charge 1000 an hour. Some charges 25K or 45K, or 100K, or 200K, or 400K pesos. Celebrity motivational speakers from the US of A typically charge 20K dollars when they speak here.
I can say that fees are not based on the perceived value of the speech. Fees are based on the status of the speaker. Sometimes, increasing higher fees lift your status too.
I don’t believe in charging per hour. That benefits only the speaker. It is more difficult to deliver a speech in 30 minutes than in two hours. That’s true when you are after the results.
I have delivered speeches for free. I have charged 15k and 25k, and 250K. It depends on where you speak and for whom.
Yes, as long as the participants can guarantee that they’ll apply what they’ll learn from me for the next 90 days. I don’t just offer practical advice. I many of my speeches, I offer actionable ideas. Without action on the part of my clients, I can’t guarantee anything.
I can teach you to become a high-impact speaker. Then, I can share with you what I know about motivation which many motivational speakers don’t know. There is more to motivating people than telling stories.
Anyone who has the desire to use public speaking to move people can be a motivational speaker. That means a teacher, a trainer, a politician, a preacher, and other speakers can call themselves as motivational speakers. But they don’t have to. I don’t sell myself to the world like many of the motivational speakers in the Philippines.
The greatest challenge we have as Filipinos is not the lack of motivation. Our biggest challenges are how to think differently and play bigger. Motivation is not enough and we can keep people motivated when they are confident and capable.
