Businesses, Organizations and Individuals Need New Ideas
Everyone needs great ideas that can be put to good use today, tomorrow, and even in the years ahead. Great ideas are timeless. Timeless in their truths and timeless in the help they can afford us.
Our understanding of what helps us be productive at work, compassionate and supportive as partners, parents and mentors, and life-affirming members of our communities and spiritual homes, grows every year.
My goal is to share some of these remarkable new ideas that can help us work more productively, live our lives with greater kindness and compassion and share our happiness with those around us. I also love to share my thoughts on some of the insight and wisdom of some of those who came before us, how we can learn from their experiences and come to understand their perspectives.
I’ve noticed that very often a professional speaker who addresses a business or non-profit organization will get everyone pumped up for an hour or two, and then leave for the next speaking opportunity. Just as often, everyone who heard the speaker’s presentation will quickly fall back into the same unproductive patterns and negative attitudes not long after the memory of the speech fades.
What good is “motivation” if it lasts just a week, or a day, or as little as an hour?
When members of an organization are provided with truly exciting, genuinely useful ideas, they will be less likely to lose their drive, their creativity, their ability to compete, and may find a greater sense of fulfillment both at work and in their day-to-day lives. This same approach can be successful in addressing audiences on day-to-day life experiences, family matters, school issues, and spiritual matters.
As a professional speaker, I strive to achieve these goals whenever I address an audience:
- I always endeavor to speak in a professional, enjoyable manner on subjects that will enhance the self-awareness, the self-esteem and the potential for the self-improvement of the members of my audience.
- When speaking on productivity concepts, education, ethical, or spiritual issues, my information and recommendations are based on well-documented research from respected, published, scientific studies.
- I always endeavor to promote the inherent worth and dignity of every individual and the immeasurable importance of compassion in human relations.
- I love to use humor in my presentations and talks, but I only use humor that will entertain and enlighten, and that does not harm or hurt any individual or group.
- I always remind myself that every opportunity to share ideas with others is an opportunity to learn. The free and responsible exchange of ideas with my audience is, by far, the part of my work I enjoy most.
