When I leave the house, I turn on all the instruments I plan to use that day. When I get in the car, I turn on the music I need for that day. Why does that make me happy? I think I know the answer. “I like to listen to good music,” I think to myself as I listen to the music. “It makes me feel happy when I listen to my favorite music.” I have good taste. I enjoy music. I love to listen to music. And, I think that’s why it makes me happy. I enjoy music.
Do your employees? Wouldn’t you love it if they listened to your music? You’ve probably worked long hours, there is a lot of juggling I need to do, bad things happen, I need to learn to deal with it and I need to be able to focus. Maybe they can tune out the distractions and focus. Maybe you could make this work for them. If you bring your employees together, you may be able to come up with a fun, creative, memorable event. You could have a group concert.
You could have a motivational seminar. Have your employees find a motivational book, conduct a motivational seminar. Make a motivational video. maybe you could play a motivational song that weaves a connection to your organization. You could write an article and have it published in best selling magazines or newspapers. Maybe if you include quotes that inspire meaning, you could have it published in the paper. Do not just say, “this event is to help our employees achieve goals,” “the increase in sales is due to corporate profits, we need to improve production.”
Say you have an event to help “achieve goals.” No matter what your goal is, motivate your employees to achieve the goal with the goal being happier, more productive and safer employees. Though you need to raise sales or maintain their production or improve employee safety, do not focus on this as a goal. Like me, I may not sell, though I find a proper goal, to keep me optimistic and excited may truly help me reach my sales target. You can do a group concert and then invite other music artists and people that you would like to hear. You could get bands you would love to see to play. Maybe you could score a motivational song for the audience. Learn how to use the hundreds of CD’s on the Internet.
Look for memorable lyrics and music that will make people say, “that was unique, what a great concert!” Consider a song that has a composition that stirs joy, inspires a party atmosphere, it has lead the group on a journey and people will enjoy listening. Spend time planning your concert even if it’s not for you. You are making a difference. Your employees will thank you for it. Here’s a couple of times I would look forward to a corporate production. “Motivational” is a great word to evoke activities, be creative and analytic.
Motivational works well internationally, even OK/UK/US. How about “comedy event”? The track “Be Yourself” (from the same album by the same band as “Motivational”) comes to mind. If you know what your employees do better than your employees, why not use that for your event? You want your employees to stay excited and enthusiastic about the day? You want them to sing or dance or dance in a manner that is fun and choreographed to achieve a specific goal, not a plea for money. For years we have been conducting (also named Motivational) sessions that are fun fun and spontaneous, they are cost effective and encourage people to step out of their comfort zone, thus, allow an “out of their personal comfort zone” feeling for motivation.
Format. How long? Both employee and staff are good with time. When to conduct your concert. The best time is during work time or after the holidays. If it is an in front of time, preferably in the parking lot. Make it a Friday concert, maybe maybe 3:30 – 4:30. Muted background music. Make sure to also check with your customers, maybe light classical music is a requirement. Also, do not use music that draws too much attention to yourself. bullpen music. This can really addotes you are required to pause to dance. A gradual opening of speakers. The music needs at least some renovation, insults with “you just had a bad day” are not appropriate. It might be said, “this will only cause unnecessary observers.” enforcement. For some employees, you really want them to “get it”.
