Motivational Program Addresses Number One Business Challenge in 2015

Ricky Kalmon Identifies Four Components to Increase Employee Engagement

According to the Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report, employee engagement and a corporation’s culture have become the number one challenge businesses face today. Employee engagement is responsible for high turnover rates, low productivity, and the loss of billions of dollars annually. A Gallup study showed that only 13 percent of employees are actively engaged, while 24 percent are actively disengaged. Motivational speaker
According to the Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report, employee engagement and a corporation’s culture have become the number one challenge businesses face today. Employee engagement is responsible for high turnover rates, low productivity, and the loss of billions of dollars annually. A Gallup study showed that only 13 percent of employees are actively engaged, while 24 percent are actively disengaged. Motivational speaker, trainer, and hypnotist Ricky Kalmon has identified four key areas that increase employee engagement: confidence, empowerment, interaction, and inspiration. As a result, he has created programs that address these key issues for employees at all levels.
“Employee engagement can result in a drastic loss of productivity, costly turnovers, and negative employer-employee relationships. Employers who empower and interactive with their employees experience higher job retention rates and as much as 200 percent more productivity,” Kalmon reports. “The programs I’ve created address the key issues that increase employee engagement, which is good news for the 34 percent of businesses who don’t have a strategy to address this critical issue.”
Kalmon’s programs are delivered with an interactive approach to employees at all levels. Each program is tailored to a business’ unique issues, while providing them with the tools and techniques to increase employee self-esteem, confidence, and motivation. Employee engagement begins immediately in these programs, which are designed to empower employees and leadership with the mindset and accountability that create positive outcomes, less stress, and greater job satisfaction.
“The same employee who is disengaged and disinterested can become one of a company’s most valuable assets when they feel empowered and confident that their contributions are valued. When I created these programs, I focused on those issues and addressed them on both an employee and leadership level,” says Kalmon. “The response has been extremely positive, with an immediate measurable increase in employee engagement. When you change the culture of a company, you can change its results.”

Never Make this Mistake!

If there is one thing we’ve learned about assumptions, it’s that they’re often proven to be wrong. Assumptions are never a sure thing. Nobody can be certain of any outcome until it actually comes to fruition. That’s because it’s impossible to know what kind of results can be achieved until someone actually sets out to achieve them. Our capabilities are not predictable and remain unknown until we try.
The only thing that is certain is that when we fail to try, we do, indeed, fail. But failing once doesn’t mean we will fail all of the time. How many people have attempted something and failed, only to try again and finally achieve their goal—they finally quit smoking, lost weight, finished school, or found a solution to an ongoing problem. What happened to spark their success? Their mindset changed. They became personally and/or professionally accountable. Simply by changing our mindset to one that willing to put forth effort and determination, we become one step closer to accomplishing a task or mastering a skill.
When you assume you can't, you can't. Never make assumptions about your own capabilities. Don’t assume the outcomes of inspired and engaged employees or leadership. Instead, encourage an “I can” mindset, one that empowers you and everyone in your organization to explore new opportunities. When you do, the possibilities … and results … are likely to surprise you.
One of the best ways to encourage this kind of positive mindset is to actively engage everyone in your organization. Make your employees feel like they are a valuable part of your progress and success. Don’t assume what can or cannot be done—encourage and engage them to discover just how much they can contribute. Given the chance and the encouragement to try, they just might surprise themselves and you.
Anticipate change and give yourself permission to make it happen. Nothing is impossible, unless you assume it is!

Employee Engagement Creates Mutually Beneficial Relationships

Businesses across the world are seeking ways to establish relationships—with their employees. Whether or not an employee is engaged in their work, the company, and their results has a direct result on their success and the company’s profit margin. 
A Gallup poll showed that just 29 percent of American employees felt they were engaged at work and worldwide only 13 percent felt engaged. Such low levels of engagement not only diminish the level of productivity, but it also affects the level of happiness, accountability, and turnover in employees.
Why? Engaged employees feel a connection with their company. They feel valued and committed to not only do their job, but to do it well. Those who are engaged report high levels of job satisfaction.
Two key factors that affect an employee’s level of engagement are motivation and stress. The more motivated a person is, the more engaged they will be. The more stressed an individual feels, the more disengaged they will be. Both of these factors are affected by the thoughts and perceptions in a person’s subconscious mind.
If an employee has negative beliefs about their abilities, they will lack motivation. It is also true that employees with low self-esteem and confidence are less motivated to do more than necessary and foster healthy working relationships. By changing their negative thoughts to positive ones, these employees can increase their confidence, boost their self-esteem, and uncover the motivators that will enhance their value and happiness in the workplace.
Change the way you think, and you can change the workplace. Use relaxation techniques to reduce stress and increase energy and motivation. Use affirmations to replace doubt with belief to improve performance and build confidence. Take advantage of the power of the subconscious mind to replace negative attitudes with positive thoughts, which in turn will begin to create the positive results you’re seeking. When you perceive your role in a positive light, you’ll become vested in and connected to your company and will become valuable in its success.
Managers also can play a pivotal role in employee engagement and motivation by fostering an environment that rewards employees for their input, feedback, and performance. Providing employees with opportunities to reduce stress and create balance in their lives will greatly enhance engagement in the workplace.
When employee engagement improves, so does job performance and satisfaction, retention, and the bottom line. It creates a mutually beneficial relationship between companies and their employees that is rewarding for all.

The One Business Relationship You Must Keep!

Relationships are a vital part of business. But, there is one relationship that is undervalued and critical to success—the relationship with yourself.

Why should you care about the opinions and criticisms you have of yourself? Because the way you feel about yourself and your performance always impacts the way others perceive you. You will always conduct yourself according to your beliefs, and the people you do business with will align their opinions with yours.

You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. It’s also true that you can never fool yourself. If you lack confidence and belief in yourself, others will sense it and follow suit. You simply cannot convincingly portray yourself as someone different than your mindset believes you are. Your subconscious mind won’t allow you to do so.

You are a partner of your mindset and beliefs. It’s a working relationship that always impacts your decisions, progress, and most important, the way others perceive you in the workplace. 

Think about someone you admire. What qualities do they have that have earned your admiration and respect? Often, it is self-confidence and belief in their abilities and what they do and say. In other words, they have a positive relationship with themselves.

When you admire your own qualities and abilities, you reinforce them in your subconscious and convey them to others. As a result, you create:
  • More confidence—confidence that people will notice and admire.
  • Trust—you will trust your instincts, decisions, and abilities.
  • Respect—when you respect your opinions, beliefs, and ideas, so will others.
  • Admiration—for yourself and admiration by others.
Your relationship with yourself is the most vital relationship you can focus on in your business success. Other relationships will come and go, but your confidence and belief in yourself is a relationship you cannot separate yourself from. It is the key to taking risks, making decisions, creating growth and progress, and earning the trust and admiration of others.

It is also the one thing that you can control. You cannot control others or how they will perceive you, but you can control and improve the relationship you have with yourself. Strengthen your relationship with yourself, and others will look at you differently. A healthy and confident business relationship with yourself is vital to the success you will have with others. When your self-beliefs are positive, they become a vital partner in your success. And that’s a business relationship worth keeping.

Recognize There is Room to Grow

The human mind has an astounding capacity for learning. Unlike a computer's hard drive, there is no limit to the knowledge and experiences that can be stored in it. However, some people believe that growth and learning only take place during our formative years, when we receive our formal education. That is not the case. In fact, unlike a person's height or shoe size, the mind is the one part of the body that has an infinite ability to grow.

Leadership expert John Maxwell once said, "Growth today is an investment for tomorrow." The world around us is constantly evolving, and if we do not evolve and grow with it, we will become stagnant and place our success on a plateau.

There is always room to grow—the mind has an incredible ability to change, adapt, and improve. This ability does not decline with age or with success. Personal and professional growth actually stimulates the mind, encourages innovation and creative thinking, and increases curiosity. Every new experience and piece of knowledge becomes part of the phenomenal encyclopedia stored in our mind. It is never lost—our subconscious continually refers to it in everything we do. 

Even CEOs and top leaders invest in their growth. They know that there is always room to grow, even at the top. Learning and growing must occur for a business to grow and adapt to changes. The same is true for people; they, too, must invest in their personal and professional development in order to increase their value.

Learning and growth are like exercise for the mind. Just as we exercise our heart and muscles, we must continue throughout life to exercise our mind to keep it functioning at its best. Recognize that there is always room to grow and invest in learning every day. Don't take it for granted—make a conscious effort to fuel your success by enriching your growth. Read a book, attend a workshop, take a class, get a new degree, or learn a new hobby or another language. Your mind is thirsty for knowledge and exercise—giving it permission to grow is the best investment you can make in your future.

Don't Overcomplicate Accountability


How does one become accountable? It is not a complicated process. It's actually very easy and starts with something you already have—your thoughts. Your thoughts have the incredible power to produce the outcome you want … or don't want. When you use your thoughts to create a mindset that continually reminds you that you are in control and have the power to influence your success, your subconscious mind will automatically begin to work to make that happen.

The dictionary defines accountability as an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions or results. This official definition sounds more complicated than it actually is, though. Accountability is simply accepting that there is only one person responsible for your success—you. When you understand that and become accountable, you will find that success follows. 


Negative thoughts steer us away from success and help us make excuses for them. Positive thoughts, however, serve as a continual reminder of what we can do, not what we cannot do. As a result, we give ourselves the power and permission to produce the outcomes we want. When we make that a conscious choice and reaffirm our accountability to ourselves on a daily basis, it will eventually become an automatic habit that we follow without even thinking about it. 

The next time things aren't going right, be accountable. Look to yourself first, before any other people or circumstances. Ask yourself how you may have contributed to the outcome you didn't want. Did you have secret doubts that you could achieve what you wanted? Whether you had a lack of confidence or a lack of motivation, the negative thoughts associated with that directly affected your results. That is because the subconscious mind does not discriminate between positive or negative thoughts. It will go to work to align your results with your thoughts, regardless of what they are. 

So hold yourself accountable for your own success. Reinforce the results you want by feeding your subconscious mind with positive thoughts that will support your success. It sounds too easy, but it is incredibly effective. Don't overcomplicate accountability; it's simply a matter of giving yourself permission to take control of your success and empowering yourself with the positive thoughts that can make it happen.

Does hypnosis really help people lose weight?


People want to lose weight for many reasons, and they try many different ways to do it. They deprive themselves of certain foods, while limiting others. They create a cycle where they're unhappy with their body or health, so they diet. Then they become discouraged and return to their old eating habits. Dieting is a continual reminder of the things we cannot have, rather than the things we can. Top that off with the fact that many people don't get enough physical exercise and use food as comfort for their emotions, not their body, and you can see why diets aren't always the answer.

Does your mind control your weight? Do your thoughts sabotage your efforts to be fit and healthy? So many people don't realize that it's the mental part of weight loss and health consciousness—not the physical part—that determines their success. Yes, hypnosis can help you lose weight and create the mindset you desire! It will give you incredible willpower to stay on track. It will retrain you to approach weight loss from a better perspective—one where you are not on a diet, but rather on a quest for a healthier lifestyle. I have spent my career developing programs that will allow you to create the thinking patterns needed to enhance your desire and passion for a healthier lifestyle. Wouldn't it be great if your mind, not a diet, guides you where you want to go? Sure it would! It can, because your mind can be your best friend—not your worst enemy.

Five Things You Should Never Say to Yourself in Business and Life!

Negative talk and self-thoughts destroy accomplishment. But even successful people can win to fail based on what they say to themselves. We must retrain our mind to believe we can achieve the things we want and build a relationship of trust with ourself that’s unshakable.
If you really want to achieve something, you must believe that you can. You must be willing to be your own coach, your strongest supporter and biggest cheerleader. You must build a relationship based on trust—with yourself.
Words are magic to a receptive listener. What you say – and think – always matters. Every single word that crosses your mind, every word you say, and every word you write helps to frame your personal reality, and, to some extent, the reality about yourself that you present to others around you. If the words are negative, you find yourself living in a narrow, limited – and probably unhappy – negative reality. Negative words and thoughts stifle our opportunities and achievements. Feeding ourselves with negativity only reinforces and cements the likelihood that we’ll remain stuck right where we are. Changing our thoughts and words to positive ones, however, pulls us out from our current reality and magnetically propels us toward positive outcomes. If the words you feed yourself are positive, your world expands to virtually limitless horizons and becomes optimistic and hopeful.
There are five things you should avoid saying to yourself in business and in life. They are: no, can’t, not possible, never, and don’t think so. Think about what you hear when you say these words to yourself. Now think about how others hear those words when you say them.
The biggest obstacles in front of most of us are the ones we can’t see. These are words. We can see a mountain and figure out how to go around it or climb up it, but we can’t see the obstacles we create by the words we say. Increasing your awareness of what you say to yourself and others can have a profound effect on your reality and others!!!

Simplicity of Consistency

One Simple Step to Increase Business Success

Consistency is doing something repeatedly and the same way over time. Have you ever heard of someone who consistently is punctual? How about someone who consistently is late? We become known for the things we consistently do, or do not do. The mere fact that we repeat an action or trait time and time again turns it into a habit or pattern. If it is an admirable action or trait, great! It's a positive habit that will have a positive impact on our success and relationships. On the other hand, if it is a negative habit, by doing it consistently, it will soon become a part of the way we conduct business and it will affect our reputation. No one wants to be known for consistently being late or always being unprepared or disorganized. The good news is that we can turn negative business traits into positive ones in a very simple way—by consistently doing or acting in a way that changes our habits and patterns.

Does that sound too simple? While it is simple, it's ability to transform our habits and create newfound success should not be underestimated. Don't take the simplicity of repetition for granted. Becoming aware of the things we need to change and simply being consistent about altering them is one of the most effective ways to create new, positive habits. The simple things that we do with consistency become our patterns and habits. Simply put, the more we repeat a certain action or thought, the more it will become natural to us. By repeating these simple traits on a consistent basis, they become a part of an individual's culture.

Consistency is the key to achieving our goals and building a solid, positive business reputation. We program our self based on the messages and beliefs we send to our subconscious mind. This becomes the software that our mind follows every day. Being consistent in following up with clients, delivering exceptional customer service, and being on top of providing the latest and greatest products and services are all simple, but consistent, qualities. By staying with these simple traits, they become part of our culture and identity. Who wouldn't want to be known for being prompt and providing top notch service?

It doesn't take much to step back and recognize what simple traits, actions, or qualities you consistently exhibit. Are they negative or positive? This awareness, as simple as it is, might show you how to implement positive consistencies that will help you hold yourself accountable. All you have to do is consistently exhibit the traits and qualities you do want, and over time, they will replace the former negative ones. With consistency, you can use them toward your advantage.

Take a step back to become more aware of what you should change and redirect your actions toward positive reinforcement. It's that simple!

Setting Exceptions that are Non-Negotiable

We must be accountable for the principles and policies that we pride ourselves on!

While we all have good intentions, it's not uncommon for us to compromise from time to time. Every once in a while, we make exceptions to the standards we set or cut corners. We might waver from a goal or become so busy that we can't dedicate the time and attention to deliver our very best. On occasion, that's okay, but there are times when the exceptions we make will have a negative impact.
There will always be some things that we can negotiate, but we must be accountable for the principles and policies that we pride ourselves on. These are non-negotiable exceptions that we must adhere to and abide by in order to stay true to ourselves and be the best we can be.
What principles are non-negotiable to you? Do you set a higher standard for yourself than others? Do you refuse to cut corners? Maybe you want your business to be known for delivering the very best service or product. Even if going above and beyond expectations is the one thing that makes you stand out among the competition, that is the one thing that should be non-negotiable to you.
How can you avoid the temptation to negotiate your principles and values? First, you must reinforce them in your mind so they never get moved aside, even temporarily, by other demands and responsibilities. When you catch yourself compromising your principles, immediately stop what you are doing and clear your mind of any conflicting thoughts. Then reinforce your non-negotiable principles and values by reaffirming them in your thoughts and mind. Do this often, and you'll realize that you'll automatically implement them as you carry out your responsibilities. Remember, the subconscious is a powerful tool that always reinforces your strongest thoughts.
The things that are most important to you and your business should never be an exception. Don't negotiate your success; commit to it—one thought at a time.

Accountability Factor in Business and in Life!

How to succeed in business, overcome challenges, and create success in your life.

That sounds like a tall order, doesn't it? We would all like success in our lives. It starts with not allowing suggestions, environment, society, or any other external influence to determine our reality.
As a motivational speaker for corporate events, sales conferences, and conventions, I'm asked all too often how people can succeed in everything they do. How does one empower themselves personally and professionally? Perhaps, the greatest knowledge one can gain is knowing his or her true self. All too often, we let our true selves become dormant while we're busily tending to work and other responsibilities.
Take a step back and reacquaint yourself with the person you are today. Learn how you've changed through the years, and then you will have the ability to make the changes you need to make to be true to yourself for years to come.
"You can live a lifetime and, at the end of it, know more about other people than you know about yourself." -- Beryl Markham
We must first learn to become more aware of ourselves. To be "ACCOUNTABLE," we must STOP and PAY ATTENTION! We need to STOP and objectively watch ourselves in action.
  • Health / Wellness
  • Wealth
  • Happiness
  • Fitness
  • Career
  • Goals
We live most of our lives by habit. These habits can be good or bad. They also can keep us stuck in patterns that limit our experience of life. Once we detect a pattern we were previously unconscious of, we can choose differently, if we want. With awareness, comes choice, and with choice, we gain freedom. Self-discovery never ends! Whether you love him or hate him, look at Donald Trump—bold, arrogant, confident, successful, demanding, pompous, and sometimes charismatic. Regardless of your personal opinion, I believe he carries one trait common to his success and fame that we can all agree on—he is true to himself when it comes to his self-belief. He is authentic! Are you?
"To be authentic is literally to be your own author ..., to discover your own native energies and desires, and then to find your own way of acting on them." -- Warren G. Bennis
"Self-knowledge is the great power by which we comprehend and control our lives." -- Vernon Howard
Life is a growth process. Don't get stuck spinning your wheels around who you were yesterday. Take the time to find out and acknowledge who you've become and let that knowledge guide you. Make it a habit to do this on a regular basis. Personal and professional growth requires ongoing effort and reinforcement. The greatest investments you will ever make are investing in yourself and holding yourself accountable.
