Improving Employee Morale: An Exercise to Energize Your Team

Share

Employee Morale

Improving employee morale is vital to success in the workplace. If your team is feeling drained and stressed, this fun exercise is a great way to refresh and energize them. To boost morale and unleash the creative power within your team, you must identify a new project that requires each member to contribute and be creative.

Then use a collaborative leadership style to fuel the fire. It doesn’t require much time and the recommended group size is 10-20 people.

Your team’s energy can determine the success of a meeting, a workday or even your overall company. How you contribute to your professional environment is as important as what you contribute emotionally.

Focus Game

Time: 8-12 minutes

Purpose: Healthy competition and synergy

Participants: Small groups

Materials: None

  1. Participants will need to form two equal lines facing each other.
  2. The game starts when one line turns around, giving the second line 40 seconds to change 10 things about themselves. This can include anything from jewelry or clothing being swapped with other people, untied shoelaces, a different hairdo, or a switched watch or ring to the other hand. All changes must be something the other group can see.
  3. After 40 seconds, the first group turns around and tries to find all the changes the other group made.
  4. Once the changes have been recognized, the groups switch, giving each team a chance to make changes.

Summary

A typical workday can drain the energy out of your employees. Look for ways to create energy boosts throughout the day, in meetings, and throughout projects. This can be as simple as frequent short breaks, laughter, creating a very open environment where fresh ideas and creativity are rewarded.

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
