Motivational Speech Template to Congratulate Your Team

Leadership Giving Funny Motivational Speech

Are you continually Frustrated with your team's drive and motivation? Do you wish teams would get along and do their job? You need a motivational speech for your team to invigorate culture.

Every good leader knows that significant accomplishments come from a team working well toward common goals.

We are all on a journey, and let's face it, some days are better than others. Some people show up for work happy and ready to take on the day. Others drag themselves in and frustrate progress.

Inspiration comes in fits and bursts throughout the day, but it's inconsistent. Progress occurs when teams feel enlivened by outstanding leadership. Phenomenal leaders remain visible and continually offer hope, encouragement, and direction. Remember, the way you lead yourself is the way you will lead others. If you are hard on yourself, you will be hard on others. If you are not inspired, it's hard to inspire others.

Example of a short motivational speech FOR YOUR TEAM


We have come a long way. 

Sometimes it may feel like you work hard, and it is not appreciated 

Be assured that your journey, achievements, and value are noticed.

We see you working long hours. Sometimes staying past 7 PM to complete those quarterly reports (add specific examples).

We see you pulling together as a team as resources keep being pulled away from you. 

We see you giving up precious time with your family to give that time to our cause.

Note: Repeating a phrase (We See You) is a powerful rhetorical device.


None of this goes unnoticed. Although some days feel like an uphill battle, we have come a long way. Our progress has paved the way for future success and resiliency (add specific examples).

 Keynote Speaker

We are succeeding in ways that 20 years ago, we never could have imagined. Our work doesn't just enrich our own lives, but it enriches our community and our customers. ( give SHORT examples)


Every day, your team benefits from your creativity, hard work, intelligence, and leadership. That is why all of us strive to care and do the job. You do it because you know your team relies on you, and you won't let them down. Your team is there for you, too, even when you drive them crazy.


Think about how hard we have worked to get to where we are now.


Together we are achieving great things—the work we do matters. We are proud of who we are.


So tomorrow and the next day and in the future, when you feel discouraged or exhausted, you will remember what we have achieved and lean in on your team for support.


Let them make you even hungrier to succeed. Thank you for honouring our work with your commitment to service. 

 ……. End of Motivational Speech to Congratulate your team

Whatever you say, make sure that the speech for your team is genuine. Add examples of personal struggles. 

Inspiration often feels fleeting, so it has to become a part of your culture. It takes time and energy to keep it alive. A good football coach gives a motivational speech before and during every game; a great leader needs to provide an inspirational address for a team before every shift. 

Spouting out the same saying over and over to your team may fall on deaf ears. It would help if you kept switching the message up. Keep your message relevant and fresh. Bring in a funny keynote speaker to reinforce essential ideas to your team to boost morale. Humour always increases recall, decreases stress and brings a room together. It's a welcome break.

Bringing in an outside expert offers a new and fresh perspective.
