The pep talk at the morning meeting should be swift to the point and well rehearsed.
Since it’s so short (or should be) if talking to a small group 5-20 people then something between 60 seconds – 180 seconds to deliver your message. If you have statistics and information that you think must be addressed in this meeting then think again.
This meeting is all about getting your staff pumped for the day and the only statistics and information should be those that will further your goal of increasing the staffs sales!
This speech should be done the day before and distilled to be as short as possible because the staff will always have a short attention span for these kind of speeches.
First words should be the key words and the thing you are trying to get across and the middle part is more about talking about this while you modulate your voice to be more vocally and theatrically interesting since this will add to the attention that the starting keywords will get. In other words the middle part is more for building up to the punch line.
The punch line should be the same or close to the same as the key words in the start to really hit home.
To find new topics to talk about read about anything and every thing you can find time to since this will give you fresh and up to date topics to make these pep talks interesting.
The pep talk always be delivered with gusto and a positive energy. IF you don’t feel up to this then you should cancel the pep talk and since it will otherwise be counterproductive.
Also try to do a weekly “red thread” to make things more challenging for yourself.
Just do it!
