Motivational Youth Speaker - Building the Leaders of Tomorrow

Motivational Youth Speaker - Building the Leaders of Tomorrow

Having worked as a motivational youth speaker for years, Joel Penton has influenced the lives of over 1,000,000 young people. From middle schools in Ohio to high schools in Texas, he has been proud to help develop our leaders of tomorrow. How does he do it? Read on to find out!

Improving Decision-Making Skills with a Motivational Youth Speaker

Improving Decision-Making Skills with a Motivational Youth SpeakerJoel understands that individuals who hold leadership positions face difficult choices every day. In the world of business, they may need to decide if they should open up a second location or if they should purchase that new delivery truck. In politics, leaders need to choose how to vote on key issues and figure out how best to allocate resources in a budget.

In his role as a motivational youth speaker, Joel aims to prepare students for jobs such as these by helping them to hone their decision-making skills. He accomplishes this feat by discussing real-world scenarios and walking them through the thought processes to use to figure out how best to respond to them. They can then apply their new-found knowledge to situations that may arise in their own lives.

During his presentation, Joel also discusses the positive outcomes of smart decision making. He believes that when students can envision the results of their choices, they are likely to spend more time making sure that they take the right path.

Learning Empathy with a Motivational Youth Speaker

Learning Empathy with a Motivational Youth SpeakerMaking tough decisions is by no means the only challenge that leaders face on a daily basis. In many cases, they also need to communicate effectively with people from a wide variety of different backgrounds. For business leaders, most of this communication is done with employees, vendors, and clients. In the world of politics, the electorate is the usual recipient of key messages.

As a motivational youth speaker, Joel believes that the best way to learn how to communicate with just about anybody is to understand how to empathize with their situation. He believes that when you can see the world through the eyes of another person or group of people, it is much easier to speak to them in a way that will mean something to them.

During his presentations, he spends a sizeable chunk of time teaching the attending students about the importance of empathy. Much like his approach to developing decision-making skills, he teaches empathy by working through real situations - many of which he has encountered in his own life. In doing so, he teaches the students to consider the thoughts and feelings of the other party before deciding how to respond to each scenario.

In his role as a motivational youth speaker, Joel has helped prepare students from just about every state in the nation for a future in leadership.
