How a Professional Keynote Speaker can make you Happier & Why it is Good for Business.
Business is all about people. And the happier people are the better business will be. So, research now is repeatedly confirming that ‘happiness is good for business’, so much so that happiness has now become a ‘strategic tool’ for leaders.
However, let’s keep it simple: whatever we do will be done better when we make people happier in the process. So, one of the goals of your internal corporate event can be to make people happier and a Professional Keynote Speaker can help you achieve this.
The goal of this article is to highlight how a Professional Keynote Speaker can help your internal corporate event make people happier and how this (happy people) is good for business.
Happy people are critical for Organisational Success.
Every CEO, Leader, and Human Resources Manager understands that growing a business is all about Recruitment and Retention*.
Recruiting the right people is essential to grow your business with new talent, insights, and capacity. Retaining the right people as your business grows and develops is essential to keep the right knowledge, mindsets, and culture.
Professional Keynote Speakers understand this and they work to make sure their role increases employee morale. Or, to put it more simply, they help to make your people happier. See article: The Impact of a Keynote Speech.
* Kansas State University published a study, "Happy Employees Are Critical For An Organisation's Success." Researcher Thomas Wright states that inspiring optimism and offering social support are effective means of improving well-being, enhancing employee retention and performance on the job. This article goes on to quantify his findings, “in a sample of management personnel with average salaries around $65,000, he found that being psychologically distressed could cost the organisation roughly $75 a week per person in lost productivity. With 10 employees that translates to $750 per week in performance variance; for 100 employees the numbers are $7,500 per week or $390,000 per year.”
People are Happier with a Professional Keynote Speech.
Both the experience and the result of a Professional Keynote Speech will increase the happiness of your people. During the Speech a Professional Keynote Speaker will make the experience an enjoyable one. They will focus on an optimistic view while remaining realistic. They will use humour to activate the brain's dopamine reward system and make people laugh because they understand that this is a good state to learn from. See article: Why a Professional Keynote Speaker will make you Laugh.
A Professional Keynote Speaker makes learning an enjoyable experience.
And because a Professional Keynote Speaker understands the power of happiness, they will make sure that the result of their Speech will inspire your people to higher levels of happiness. Through the very fact that having learned something gives people a sense of happiness (while also showing a commitment to your team's ongoing education and professional development). And they can also achieve this by using whatever topic they are speaking about to create a renewed alignment to your Vision & Strategy. See article: Five Tips to Align your Vision & Strategy.
