Five Minute Motivational Speeches as Morale Boosters


motivational speechesSpeech is the mirror of the soul;
as a man speaks, so is he.
Publilius Syrus

If you are faced with keeping people motivated on a day to day basis, there is no better inspiration than simple Five Minute Motivational Speeches. You don't have to be a motivational keynote speaker to give a motivational speech. Follow the four steps below to be an inspirational speaker and inspire and engage.

All leadership should get good at delivering these short Improptu morale boosters.

Ingredients to Five Minute Motivational Talks-

1.Have a compelling cause. What are you trying to say? Only one overall purpose should be weaved into each of the motivational speeches. Your objective could be:

  • To recognize and appreciate the team or individual behaviour
  • To re-engage a team toward their purpose and tie day- to- day activity and performance to it
  • To inspire people towards a short term goal ( ie- let's sell 10 widgets before the end of the day, or lets call 10 clients, etc)
  • To inform or educate employees( new policies, procedures,products)
  • To re-energize your team
  • To let your team know more about leadership values, goals and vision

2. Once you are clear on your objective, in point form write out all the main points you need to make ( ie- product specifications, deadlines, performance updates, etc)

3. Shape the message towards the audience

Why do they need to hear this? Do this? What do you want them to do differently? Motivational morale boosters speak to the needs of the audience, not what the speaker thinks is important but what the audience needs to hear.

4. Keep their attention. Be optimistic and project enthusiasm to give the message life and long term engagement.

Regular motivational talks are a powerful way to reinvigorate, keep inspiration alive and working towards common goals.
