Motivational Leadership Speaker – Keynote Video Reel
Brief Overview of Motivational Leadership Speaker Keynote
Master the art of active listening, identifying where, when, and how much. Learn what the world’s greatest leaders do to impact history. Garner the courage to make mistakes in order to grow and increase your influence. Learn from a leadership keynote speaker on how one’s own failure can be the key for growth and success.
E: Embrace Change
Learn how to challenge yourself to turn fear of change into a desire for change. Great leaders embrace change for personal and professional growth, to satisfy their customers, and to keep the company environment exciting and motivating for their employees.
As a leader, it is your job to help others understand the bigger picture, help them define their individual contributions to larger business objectives, and give them what they need to meet those clearly communicated performance goals. Assist with generosity and lead with courage.
Great leaders are decisive. They are able to decide between people vs. position, influence vs. authority, action vs. words, and vision vs. money. Keynote Speaker Wigge makes a clear case for why a focus on people, influence, action, and vision will always be the winning strategy.
Strong leaders are often good entertainers, and people usually like to work with humorous leaders. Humor builds trust, boosts morale, supports creativity, and works as a stress reliever. A Robert Half survey found that 91% of executives believe a sense of humor is important for career advancement, while 84% feel that people with a good sense of humor do a better job.
R: Relate to Others
Successful leaders are connectors. Two-thirds of respondents in a CCL study stated that “building and maintaining relationships is a critical competency for leadership.” Learn how strong relationship skills and influence are vital for leadership success.

Interview with Michael on his career as a Motivational Leadership Speaker & Keynote Speaker.
How did you become a leading Motivational Leadership Speaker?
Michael: I worked as an adventurer and travel writer for more than 15 years for the international book and television market. My stories specialized in challenges I faced during my trips. Is it possible to travel the world for free? Is it possible to turn an apple into a house by bartering for bigger and better things? Could I travel across 50 states in 50 days and face 50 challenges – one in each state? There’s a portfolio of seven different adventure challenges I faced, and all have one element in common: I had to leave my comfort zone to challenge myself for change. That’s why I work with the slogan Challenge-4-Change.
Looking back at these comfort zone-leaving exercises, I realized that I had to learn and apply certain leadership traits that corporate leaders usually need to be successful in their job, such as team building, empathy, decisiveness, goal orientation, the ability to constantly leave one’s comfort zone, networking, and being a good listener, an entertainer, and a role model.
I wrote down all the lessons I learned. I then developed my Challenge-4-Change Leadership Program, which I deliver as a keynote & motivational leadership speaker all around the world. Although adventure travel and corporate leadership seem to be far apart, they require very similar personality traits!
