It’s so important to find a Corporate Motivational Speaker who can provide your managers and your employees with strategies and tools for increasing system capacity and efficiency.
A lot of that has to do with organizing your work teams to begin gathering ideas from everyone.
This is not something most companies are set up to do. As a matter of fact, on the average in corporate American, the number of ideas that companies gather from each of their employees each year is 0.8. Less than one idea per employee per year! Can you believe it?! What a colossal waste of talent. It’s scandalous, actually.
Some companies have decided to tap into the intellectual and creative potential of their employees by setting up a process to gather ideas from everyone, on a regular basis.
Boardroom, Inc, a publisher of information newsletters, decided to make it mandatory for each of their employees to bring two new ideas each week, to their weekly team meetings throughout the organization. Their “ideas per employee metric” is much greater than the nationwide average. They get 102 ideas per employee per year! And guess what? Since they started their “idea program,” their “profit per employee” metric has gone up 680%.
Their employee morale has also gone way up. People love it when their ideas are valued. People love to contribute ideas.
- #5 on the real Top-10 List of What Employees Want from Work:
“To work with people who will listen if I have ideas about
how to do things better.”
Bodine is a Corporate Motivational Speaker who helps his client groups set up systems and use tools that allow them to stimulate, gather, quickly evaluate, and implement ideas from every employee.
One of the tools he has developed, that he shares with his client companies, is a technique he calls the “BrainWriting Ideas Accelerator.” Using this technique, managers can get eight to ten people around a table and get 80 to 100 ideas out them in less than 20 minutes. Then the people who generated the ideas get to quickly evaluate which of those ideas are the best, to determine which ones are valuable enough to implement.
It’s always about 5%. If your work team comes up with 80 ideas in their idea session, using the “Ideas Accelerator” tool, it means four of those ideas are going to be really good, really valuable. And if those ideas get implemented, which is the whole point of the process, they will create value for the organization and/or its customers.
As a corporate motivational speaker who knows the power of ideas, Bodine says, “The best employee ideas, well implemented, will always create value; and the idea process always improves morale.”
He can help you achieve your meeting outcomes, and your business objectives.
