2021 Leadership Development Speaker Southern California
Are you planning your company goals and need a 2021 Leadership Development speaker in Southern California? The right speaker for your workshop or event can empower your team and re-ignite your leadership goals. Here’s what to consider when planning your event to find the best leadership speakers around Long Beach and beyond.
Research Long Beach Speakers
Empowering public speakers should approach your topic and group with confidence and deep expertise. Business topics can prove dry or uninspiring in the hands of the wrong speaker. With the right approach, your 2021 leadership development speaker in Southern California will design a workshop or topic around your team’s goals. Ask your speaker:
- How will you captivate our audience?
- What are your methods for taking everyday business topics and making them enjoyable?
- What experience do you have that will resonate with our team?
Request a discovery call or consultation with Anne Laguzza of The Works Consulting to inquire how she approaches specific topics for speaking events and engages audiences. Offering insights about office culture and struggles will help refine your goals and bring clarity to your next event. Before you move forward with any speaker, ask for a reel or clips of previous engagements, as well as references.
Define Your Speaking Event Goals
Your 2021 leadership development speaker in Southern California should understand your event’s goals and what you hope to accomplish. Consider working directly with your speaker to determine the best goals for your event. Here are some questions to ask your leadership team and speaker:
- Will the guest speaker help identify and solve a problem during the event?
- Can the speaker simplify and quickly parse information to inspire my team to take action?
- Will the speaker address my team as an organization, just my leadership committee, or work in a small group?
Provide as much information to your speaker as possible to clarify your goals. The more you can identify what you hope to accomplish, the more likely you are to realize success.
Consider the Needs of Your Team
One of the fastest ways to develop your meeting or event is to ask your team for feedback. What are they struggling with? What do they hope a 2021 leadership development speaker in Southern California will accomplish?
The team dynamic should help shape the topic and content delivery. For example, a casual office will likely respond to an informal round-table discussion than a formal multimedia presentation. A more traditional business atmosphere needs a speaker who is accustomed to giving presentations to your target audience.
The goal is to avoid making a mistake in your speaker selection. Discuss your team’s personality and the work culture with your speaker to give them an idea of what to expect and plan an appropriate presentation.
Companies of all sizes can benefit from a 2021 leadership development speaker in Southern California. Your quality speaker has a background in leadership development and can provide tactile information that your group can take immediate action on.
The Works Consulting offers leadership development and workshops that focus on maximizing the human capital within an organization. The goal is to strengthen leadership to realize an increase in your most valuable employers’ production, morale, and retention.
Keep in mind that reputable leadership speakers are often booked up months to a year in advance. Make sure to line- up your 2021 leadership development speaker in Southern California in advance.
Consider the Current Trends
Evergreen, timeless leadership meetings are a popular option, but you should still consider the current trends. For example, failing to address today’s remote workers’ challenges could make it seem like your speaker is out of touch with reality. Walk through any trends happening around the office from remote work to onboarding struggles to enhance your event or workshop.
Ask Speakers About their Team Experience
The best speakers in Long Beach should have practical, direct knowledge and expertise. Speakers who focus on fluffy advice and anecdotes won’t come armed with actionable goals that motivate your team to act. When I speak to companies and groups, I offer a multidisciplinary approach that can integrate human resources, leadership development, and performance coaching to create systems that help companies thrive. At the same time, teams should still feel supported and encouraged in the process.
