A professional public speaker in the Philippines may help. Jef Menguin has equipped and inspired thousands of leaders, teams, and workplace professionals. He delivers talks on leadership, motivation, personal development, creativity, innovation, and malasakit.
Speeches that Equip & Inspire
I started delivering speeches that move people into action in 1991, during my seminary days. When I went out of the seminary, I honed my public speaking skills as a student activist. Then, I became a teacher.
My career as a professional public speaker in the Philippines took off in 2006. Since then, I have delivered hundreds of speeches to all kinds of leaders here in the Philippines and few countries where I got invited to speak.
But I never delivered the same speech twice. The intention may be the same, but the audience, environment, and delivery are different.
What follows are some of the titles of speeches I have delivered since 2006. I share these to give you ideas on what we can achieve together.
Speeches For Leaders
I was first drawn to leadership talks, probably because I have always been picked to lead. I have experience how both failures and successes. I did more reading on exemplary leaders than any of my subjects when I was in high school.
Below are some of the motivational speeches I crafted and delivered to encourage leaders to challenge the status quo, start something new, and change the world.
1. Pursue Personal Leadership
You begin with yourself. Know who you are, imagine the best version of yourself, and work hard to become that person every day. We can choose our mindsets, our actions, and our habits. We can design for ourselves the personal discipline that will turn us into the person we desire to follow.
Of course, you can become a leader of thousands and act like a good person. Yes, you can fake authenticity and sincerity. But people will eventually find out. Choose what’s best.
2. Finish What You Start
One challenge that most leaders have is the inability to get things done. Ningas Cogon and Manana habits prevent us from having a fulfilled and meaningful life.
With the right mindset and simple tools, you can learn how to finish what you start. You will understand where to spend your time, attention, and energy to make good things happen.to make good
3. Enjoy Your Life & Your Job
People are looking for a work-life balance. That is not easy. We have limited time, and people expect us to show that we care. Leaders can enjoy a good life wherever they are. There are little secrets that can turn things around for you and for everyone you lead.
4, Great At Work: Secrets of Top Performers
You can be great at work. Leaders who have initiative, creativity, and empathy create a great climate and a winning culture. With examples from exemplary leaders and easy-to-use tools, you can also generate greatness at work.
5. Do One Thing Different
Leaders who innovate do one thing differently. When everyone zigs, innovative leaders zag. To create breakthroughs, one does not have to build a thousand new things. Often, those who make breakthroughs identify the one thing that makes the significant difference.
6. Good Is the Enemy of Great
Leaders who are complacent set good as a goal. They do not aim for greatness; they won’t achieve excellence. When good becomes the highest measure, leaders swim in mediocrity most of the time.
You can quickly identify leaders who are the enemies of greatness. The delay action and wait for others. To justify their work, they compare themselves to the worst of the worst. They invent excuses and blame others when things go wrong.
7. Great Leaders Grow
We all grow old. But only great leaders keep growing up. They pursue personal leadership. They build a culture of learning wherever they are. They refuse to settle.
Great leaders embrace a growth mindset. They influence others to grow too. They provide employees the tools necessary to accelerate learning and create an environment where they can practice and master those skills.
In times of crisis, great leaders pay more attention to people. They know that in tough times, people expect them to find quick and easy solutions. While most people strive to survive, good leaders find ways to bounce forward and thrive. Leaders who thrive in crisis are effective communicators, creative, compassionate, and collaborative.
Speeches for Teams
9. Bayanihan Spirit
One person believes that there is a better way to help people and solve problems. The quick spread of community pantries around the country demonstrates the power of one. You begin something easy and simple so people can follow.
But there is more to it. It is successful because we value bayanihan. We believe that we don’t have to conquer or die to become heroes. We only need to do what we can at any given time.
Do you want to cultivate bayanihan and the spirit of oneness in your organization? Do you want your team to recognize that what they do add value to others? Do you want a mission-oriented team, a team that works each day to make a difference? You can do that.
10. Cultivate A Culture of Malasakit
People who do not have malasakit are “malas” and “sakit” of your company. They do transactional work. They lie. They make it difficult for your team to succeed.
On the other hand, team members with malasakit won’t leave you behind. You walk the extra mile. Without being told, they find ways to serve customers, collaborate with others, and help carry the burden of other team members. In short, you can depend on them.
Do you want to promote a culture of malasakit in your organization? You can do it. Review your values, examine your mindsets, and practice new behaviors.
