3 Reasons to Choose a Personal Development Speaker for Your Next Event

This is a long one, but bear with me. It’s important.

I was on a conference call recently with a client from a very well-known multinational organization to discuss their objectives and speaker needs for an upcoming meeting. The team lead said something that stuck with me for the duration of our conversation. She said:

This is a program we’ve been running for many years, but as the world gets more and more complicated, we’ve started to take a holistic view of the individual. Well-being is really important to us. We empower our people to bring their full selves to the organization.

Personal development has a profound effect on every single aspect of life. Fostering a culture that pursues personal growth alongside business growth will have a more engaged workplace, which directly links to employee performance and profitability. Here are 3 Reasons to Choose a Personal Development Speaker for Your Next Event:

1. Well, it’s personal.

Richard Janes helps people connect Passion, Purpose, and Profit through embracing their authentic personal brand. By doing so, they are able to show up to the world as the very best version of themselves so the world can present even more opportunities for them to really shine doing what they love.

Nobody is ever going to give you the heads up that this is your moment. You have to be prepared every single day to communicate the passion in what you do and your unique approach that makes you special – why do you do what you do? What is the passion behind it? You see, passion excites people. Passion sparks intrigue and passion opens doors.

The answers to these questions can not be found on a resume. They can not be found in years on the job. They can not be found from recommendations. The answers to these questions are found in your story and how well it connects with your intended audience.

2. Personal development is action-oriented.

Creating a path to success is more than talent and smarts. It requires a personal strategic development plan, a clear sense of strengths, values, and motivators, and specific ways to transfer learning to real life.

Anne Grady teaches organizations how to grow resilient leaders by maximizing learning opportunities, creating shared accountability, and most importantly, taking care of their people first through individual development plans and tapping into their personal motivators.

Life is about the 3 D’s. You have to dream.  What do you want to achieve? What’s important to you?  Next, you must decide. How are you going to make that dream or goal a reality?  And most importantly, you must do.  

3. When you follow your passion, you find your purpose.

Ever find yourself asking, “What am I actually doing with my life?” Turns out, you’re not alone. The further into life we get, the more we start asking the big questions. Top among them is some variation of, “what should I do with my life, and why am I not doing it?”

When we ask that, most often we’re talking about our work. Usually, it’s because we have no clue what truly matters to us, or whatever we’re currently doing – whether it’s the thing we’re getting paid for, or not – is leaving us empty, stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious and completely devoid of a sense of purpose, meaning and joy. 

Jonathan Fields’ groundbreaking research in the field of human potential has given way to the 

Sparketype™ Assessment – the source-code or DNA for work that makes you come alive. It is a powerful starting point to better align your actions, decisions and commitments around work that fills, rather than empties you. Put another way, work that “sparks” us.
