Qualities To Look For In A Motivational Speaker

The main purpose of hiring motivational speakers is to take advantage of their abilities to inspire people in an organization to succeed. After a period of time, employees sometimes become disheartened and stop working at their best. They feel uninterested in pursuing something further if they believe they have already accomplished the specific standard. A motivational speaker will do wonders in bringing back the enthusiasm of these employees.
 
Because of different professional and personal reasons, the morale of employees often falls and sometimes, to really low levels. After a point, not even the bosses higher up the chain can inspire their employees. When this happens, it is time to hire a speaker that can boost their morale. After hearing that speaker, employees are bound to change their ways and get back their lost spirits.

Keynote speaker

Motivational speakers would recommend new strategies to find other ways of maximizing profitability or to have more sales. Their speech should inspire employees to start discussions. They will come up with new ideas based on the knowledge that the speaker passes on.
 
So, if your organization is considering hiring a motivational speaker for a convention, meeting, company event, or any occasion, check out the rest of this article to know what you should look for.
 

Understand the Audience

 
It is important that a speaker understands their audience – what would strengthen their mind, what they want to hear, how they would respond to the speaker, and so on. The speaker should be someone who is an expert in the field that the company belongs to, or even better if they are considered as an authority in that industry.
 

Create a Relaxed Atmosphere

 
Normally, a business conference is held in an extremely charged atmosphere, which puts added pressure on the employees who are already stressed out. For this reason, the first thing the speaker should do is to create a relaxed ambiance. They must know how to have a friendly atmosphere and make sure people are comfortable so they would listen. This way, the speaker always wins the trust of the audience because of their modest manner of speaking.
 

Listen to Their Past Gigs or Watch Their Videos

 
Watch out for the style of the motivational speaker in delivering their message. It should not sound agenda-like or preachy. The employees deserve a speaker who is better than that. For a company-wide convention, the speaker should be a good storyteller. Their speech should be sprinkled with stories that represent success, which employees could relate to and not a generic advice that will temporarily “solve” everything that needs attention. These success stories that the speaker must share are those achieved after great efforts so the employees would feel that they can beat their challenges. The speaker should also be able to analyze the problems of the employees, get to the root cause, and offer practical, lasting solutions.
 

Talk About Personal Goals

 

Motivational SpeakerYour company needs a speaker who is also a thought leader. They must have a supplemental material that the employees can refer to during their talk. Motivational speaking is a lot like a good film or theater. If it has a good script, it would sound personal to the audience and the idea of motivational speaking is to get everyone in the audience to reconsider their own aspirations and motivate them to make a change or act what they have been thinking all along.

 

Action-oriented Technique

 
The motivational speaker must be completely aware of what the end-result should be. For example, you may want a speaker that would inspire the audience to face the present circumstances at work. You need to make sure that the speaker ends with a powerful technique that pushes the employees to follow through when the motivational effect begins to fade. This is the key takeaway so that the speech would have the greatest impact.
 

Passionate

 
For many people, passion is everything and if the speaker does not have it, you need to look for someone else. If motivational speaking has a formula, then passion is the most important element that could totally be a game-changer for the occasion or anyone in the audience. Passion for success, life, and work is the best in changing people’s perceptions – this is what you need for your audience.
 

Not Just a Job

 
While motivational speakers are being paid for their services, the best ones do not perceive it as just a job. They consider it as an art, a pursuit that must draw from life. The story of the motivational speaker must instill solidarity with the members of the audience. A listener can only rewrite their own story when they can relate to the speaker’s story.

Micro Wristbands

 

Micro wristbands have an increasing popularity at fundraising events and schools. Since the size is only half of the standard silicone wristbands, many people tend to wear many micro bands at once. This wristband type is always the silk-screened style. And due to their small size, they are not recommended if you plan to have an intricate design as it will not be legible.

 

Finger Bands

 

Finger bands are another new style we carry. This is an easy way to promote your organization or business. And since this type is pretty small, it might not be able to accommodate large designs. If you want something simple yet unique, then finger bands are your best choice.

Discover How Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Causes Weight Loss during Pregnancy

The Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) plays a crucial role during pregnancy. However, one function of this hormone that is not always mentioned is its ability to induce weight loss (which is actually part of its role of ensuring the survival of the fetus). Is there an inch of truth to this claim? How can a hormone which is primarily designed to assist pregnancy be associated with a totally unrelated function such as weight loss?

 

Inferred Speculations 

 

hcgAt the moment, no clinical studies or experiments have been conducted to establish a direct link between weight loss and the presence of this hormone. This speculation is based on the fact that HCG is known to assist in breaking down fat reserves in a pregnant women’s body in order to provide sustenance for the developing fetus, especially during the initial stages of growth and development. Fat reserves that are not usually used by the body are those targeted by this hormone. This is why the fetus can survive for weeks and the mother does not feel any significant change.

 

From the moment that the fetus implants in the uterine wall, it needs nutrients in order to live, develop and grow. However, most women find out they are pregnant when they are already on the fourth to eighth week. During the period that the mother is not yet aware of the life inside her, the fetus needs to compete with the mother in order to get proper nutrition. The ability of the hormone in question to target fat cells that are stored in specific areas of the body is the foundation of the claim that it can cause weight loss, without affecting a person’s routine or diet.

 

Valid Arguments against such Claim 

 

hcg dietThe ability of the hormone to cause weight loss is based on a one-sided premise that a pregnant woman is not consuming the right amount of food and nutrients to supply both her and the baby’s needs. It does not take into account women who have been planning their pregnancy months or even years before it happens. More often than not, this group of expectant mothers has already started taking supplements, such as folate and calcium, to ensure that they are able to supply the needs of their babies from day one. Thus, the body already has the right amount of nutrients to sustain both the mother and the baby, and there is no need to access fat reserves.

 

It also does not take into account women who consume more than their minimum calorie intake. If the mother eats more than enough for her and her baby without even knowing about it, there is no reason for the fat reserves to be accessed. In this scenario, the hormone in question will not cause significant weight loss to occur.

 

The potential of HCG to initiate weight loss is something that is not yet proven. Another issue that needs to be addressed is how to trigger the hormone to access the fat reserves when there is no fetus inside that needs to be sustained. However, it’s potential to aid in weight loss is something that can be explored further. While there are no established studies or experiments that will prove that this hormone is an effective means to lose weight, one cannot dismiss the idea that this is possible.

 

If it is able to access fat reserves at will and when the situation calls for it, this potential can be harnessed and developed. And since this hormone is something that the human body recognizes, it is possible that a weight loss program can be developed and could help a lot of people who are having a difficult time losing weight.
