Important Qualities of a Motivational Speaker for Youth

Apr 16th 2015 at 1:47 AM

Motivational speakers require a specific set of qualities and skills that take many years to develop. When you are recruiting someone to speak to a young group, you need to look for a speaker who possesses the characteristics enumerated below. While motivational speakers don't necessarily have to take a course or hold a degree to speak professionally, they have certain attributes that make them a legitimately good choice to speak to your young crowd. Here are some of them:

  • Passion - One of the most important things motivational speakers must have in order to be effective sources of inspiration is passion. This is the kind of passion that gives them the strong urge to help others overcome fears, challenges, and worries. And that which cannot be fulfilled until they have inspired their listeners to achieve their goals. Passion is the most valuable fuel that keeps a motivational speaker going. Without it, his speeches will not be as effective and may not even sound sincere. You can judge how passionate a speaker is by watching some of his or her speeches. Many of today’s most renowned motivational speakers for the youth upload some of their speaking engagements online (on YouTube or other video sharing websites).

  • Knowledge – Motivational speakers must also have a good grasp of the subject at hand. This means a deep connection with what they are saying and a good understanding of the topic they have been tasked to speak about. This knowledge must likewise be backed by true experiences that will help audiences make sense of the subject and inspire them to overcome similar obstacles. Different speakers specialize in different niches or topics. Be sure to hire someone who is an expert in the subject you have in mind.

  • Speaking skills – Good speaking skills are also among the key things to look for in an effective motivational speaker. All the stories and experiences in the world will be nothing without the ability to communicate those stories in a way that will inspire others. Speaking skills must also be coupled with good writing skills because, after all, speeches start with written outlines and texts. Mastering both arts of speaking and writing is important to ensure truly compelling speeches.

  • Integrity – Integrity is also an important quality to possess especially since motivational speakers are supposed to serve as role models that audiences can emulate.
