Why It Is Important to Build a Culture Where Everyone is Seen and Appreciated
  • The Great Resignation. In a study done by Zety in 2021, 65% quit because they didn’t feel valued by their managers.
  • When employees feel unseen, their engagement drops. Low engagement leads to low productivity. The disengaged employees can even negatively influence the more engaged ones.
  • A culture of appreciation can potentially increase the company’s revenue.  In a study by Harvard Business Professor James Heskett, companies that exhibit the culture of appreciation had a revenue growth of 682%.
  • Being seen and appreciated is a basic human need.
  • Unlock your company’s hidden potential and inspire fearless possibilities in your team (e.g. increase team engagement, productivity, creativity) by building a culture where everyone is seen and appreciated.

The Power of Gratitude
videoimg

How do you keep your team highly engaged without spending tons of money? Building a culture of gratitude is key. This keynote will help employees gain perspective, inspire them to appreciate where they are, and share their appreciation with their colleagues, managers, and their company. The result? A happier, more productive, and highly engaged working environment.

Lead with Care
videoimg

According to Gallup, 75% of the reason why people quit their jobs is because of their managers. No matter how competent a manager or leader is, if the employees don’t feel the manager cares for them, they either get demotivated which then lowers their productivity, or they quit their jobs. In this keynote, leaders will gain practical and powerful ways on how they can show authentic care for their team members, which then leads to happier, more engaged, and more productive teams.

Mission Happiness in the Workplace
videoimg

Loneliness leads to poor health and poor performance. When employees are happier, they tend to be more inspired, creative, and productive. What does it take to build a happier and a more engaged workplace? This is what this keynote is all about.

Money Matters at Work
videoimg

Let’s face it. When we’re worried over money concerns, we can’t focus at work and our productivity suffers. This talk will inspire and empower employees to take charge of their finances so they can eliminate financial worries and be happier and more productive at work. This keynote will be one of the most beautiful gifts you can give your team members. Sha is the perfect person to give this talk because she was once buried in debts during her stint as a bank employee. Today, her finances are in order. She can empathize with those who are struggling in their finances and she can help them get out of the financial mess they are in. Don’t let money issues get in the way to becoming the most joyful and productive team member you can be.

[Motivational Speaker] Are you creating a safe space to feel all your emotions?
Feb, 20 2024

Hope you had a beautiful Valentine’s and Chinese New Year celebration last week.

Let’s dive right into our Story, Highlight, and call to Action for the week 🙂

STORY

Yesterday, I was driving to the bank when I heard a loud bump at the rear of my car.

It turned out a motorcycle Angkas driver had bumped into my car.

I pulled my car to the side and put it on hazard to check the damage.

Mixed emotions overwhelmed me. I was running late for my appointment, and I knew I would be considerate to the Angkas driver and wouldn’t let her pay for the damage, if any.

I had always been very careful with my car. It was brand new when I bought it, and I had been driving it for just over a year.

When I got out, ouch! There was a dent. It was tiny but visible. Part of her motorcycle’s blue color had already transferred to my white car.

That “dent” was the first dent on my car.

I asked to see her driver’s license and contact number, which she provided.

The Angkas driver kept saying,

“What will you do? There’s no dent. It’s nothing.”

More than the dent, her comment irritated me.

I told her,

“I was just waiting for you to say ‘sorry.’ I can be forgiving and understanding.”

She got defensive and said, “I will say sorry, but there’s no dent. It’s nothing. What will you do?”

I had no energy to continue the discussion with her, so I just took a picture of her driver’s license and got her number.

I said, “I’ll just message you if ever.”

I can sense the driver was afraid I would ask her to pay for the damage. Her fears were valid.

My feelings of frustration over the dent were also valid, and I felt like she invalidated my feelings with her comments.

I’m sharing this story because sometimes, we are like the Angkas driver.

When we’re afraid, instead of being vulnerable and owning up to our mistakes, we become defensive and unconsciously invalidate other people’s feelings.

This is why psychological safety is very important when it comes to our relationships and in the workplace.

Psychological safety starts with ourselves.

When we learn to hold space within ourselves to accept who we are—the good parts, the not-so-good parts, our mistakes, and our shadows—we can also learn to accept others as they are.

Similarly, when we learn to hold space within ourselves to feel all our emotions—the good, the painful, and the uncomfortable—we also learn to hold space for others to feel their emotions, instead of trying to invalidate or change them.

HIGHLIGHT (Lesson)

Accepting ourselves as we are enables us to accept others as they are; creating space for our emotions allows us to offer space for others to feel theirs.

Call to ACTION

What could be the times when fear overtook us, and instead of allowing ourselves to process those emotions safely, we ended up projecting our fears onto others, thereby dismissing their feelings?

In a personal relationship, imagine you’ve planned a special evening with your spouse, but your spouse arrives home late and seems preoccupied. Fear might lead you to think he doesn’t value your time or efforts. Instead of addressing your feelings of hurt or disappointment directly, you might withdraw emotionally or start an unrelated argument, projecting your fear of being undervalued and inadvertently invalidating his possible reasons for being late or distracted. This reaction can create a cycle of misunderstanding and hurt feelings, rather than fostering open communication and understanding.

In the workplace, if your team member makes a mistake that causes a client to become irate and there’s no psychological safety within your team, your team member will become defensive and do everything possible to cover up the mistake. If there is psychological safety, your team member will share what happened with their leader so they can assess the situation together and come up with a solution. (If this is a concern in your organization and you wish to build a culture with a high level of psychological safety, simply reply to this email so we can discuss how we might address this.)

It’s okay to feel our fears and to experience all our emotions without the immediate need to change them. By allowing ourselves this space, we also create room for others to feel their emotions, instead of dismissing them.


I wish you fearless possibilities! 🙂

[MotivationalSpeaker] Fearless possibilities thru ethical brilliance :)
Feb, 07 2024

Let’s dive right into our Story, Highlight, and call to Action for the week 🙂

STORY

When I was in my first year of high school, I visited my Papa in his office. He was a college professor and dean then.

I saw a ream of bond paper in his office, and asked,

“Pa, can I bring home some for my school project?”

“Sorry, no, Sha! That’s not ours.” He replied.

“But, Pa! I just need a few copies.” I insisted.

“No, Sha, because the bond paper is the university’s, not ours. Don’t worry, I’ll buy you bond papers on our way home later.” He replied.

That happened over two decades ago and I can still vividly remember it up until today. That was just one of many instances wherein my Papa showed me through his actions that he is a man of principles. As a daughter, I am proud of him and I have deep love and respect for him. This is also why my siblings and I always make time to go home to our province to spend time with him. He doesn’t demand love and respect from us. He has long earned them.

This simple yet profound lesson from my Papa, about integrity and doing the right thing, has stayed with me through the years. It became the cornerstone of my philosophy, both personally and professionally. So, when I was invited to speak on ‘Fearless Possibilities through Ethical Brilliance, to a group of 900 officers and directors of different associations all over the Philippines, I knew I had to share this pivotal moment. It perfectly illustrates how foundational values can inspire ethical decision-making and leadership, igniting possibilities in every sphere of our lives.

As a motivational speaker, addressing ‘ethics’ to an audience mostly senior in years and experience was daunting. With attendees spanning from their 50s to 70s, and only a handful in their 30s, 40s, or even 20s, the task was challenging yet exciting.

I carefully crafted my talk, blending candor, respect, fun, and humor. I explored how ethical actions open doors to opportunities, while unethical behaviors can lead to scandal, reputational damage, loss of trust, and financial losses. I brought this to life with real-life examples and case studies and introduced the “5 pillars of ethical brilliance” with the acronym TRUST. Everything was anchored towards the identity I associated the audience with — Superheroes who embrace ethical brilliance and are trustworthy.

I was very happy with how the talk turned out. Audience members were so engaged and humble to listen. At the end of my talk, a number of them came up to me to share how much the talk resonated with them and inspired them. We took selfies. They also got my number and said,

“Sha, may we also invite you to our chapter in __(insert the names of some of the most beautiful locations in the Philippines).

HIGHLIGHT (Lesson)

“Doing the right thing even when no one is looking earns enduring respect and love.”

Call to ACTION

When faced with convenience, will you still choose to do the right thing?

  • Will you turn off Netflix to spend 30 minutes with a good book?
  • Will you follow traffic rules even without an enforcer in sight?
  • Will you avoid bribing the traffic enforcer, even when it seems easier or cheaper?
  • As an employee, will you work diligently when no one is watching?
  • In sales, will you put your mission above your commission?
  • As a leader, will you prioritize your employees’ well-being?

Character is built into these small decisions. Respect starts with how we treat ourselves. When we uphold our dignity, the respect of others naturally follows.

May we make choices that reflect our highest values, shaping a character we can be proud of.

And on the occasions we falter, we can forgive ourselves, learn from our missteps, and rise again, stronger and wiser. The path to ethical brilliance isn’t about perfection; it’s about progress, resilience, and the courage to keep striving for what’s right.


I wish you fearless possibilities! 🙂

[Motivational Speaker] Humble and hungry to learn?
Jan, 31 2024

It’s my joy to bring you weekly stories, highlights, and actions to unlock exciting possibilities in your life and career!​ 

Brief about me – I’m Sha Nacino, a motivational/TEDx speaker, author, founder of the HR Summit Global, and an adjunct faculty at the Asian Institute of Management. 

We changed our newsletter name from “TuesDate” to “Motivational Speaker’s Insights.”

Our newsletter is not for everyone. It’s for people who are humble, happy, and hungry to learn. 

I want to make sure you will only receive what would be relevant to you. If this does not resonate with you anymore, please feel free to scroll down to the bottom and click “Unsubscribe.” We will miss you but we’ll also respect your decision. 
 

Let’s dive right into our Story, Highlight, and call to Action for the week 🙂

STORY

Last week, I flew to Boracay to attend a 4-day business/personal development conference as a participant. The learning from speakers was immense, but I was equally inspired by my fellow attendees:

  • One owns 10 branches of a famous pharmaceutical brand.
  • Another owns 3 hotels with 400 employees.
  • A restaurateur among us has expanded to 18 branches.
  • An entrepreneur who sold his businesses for 200 million euros at 37.
  • A former janitor turned entrepreneur is now a multi-millionaire.
  • Starting with just Php50k, one attendee’s business is now valued at Php100M.
  • Despite the pandemic’s lows, another bounced back with 200 million pesos in sales in just one year.
  • A couple who once had only USD5 to their name now owns 5 businesses, supplying artificial plants to top hotels in Dubai and beyond.

I was blown away by their humility and hunger to learn — setting aside four days to immerse themselves in learning and fellowship.

One more thing… Ever heard of the brand Mila’s Lechon? I met Mila of Mila’s Lechon at the conference. She was a participant. Amazing!

I’d like to share briefly what I learned from one of the speakers.

The speakers are very, very successful entrepreneurs with happy marriages and children who grew up to be responsible and successful adults.

The question was,

How can you create hunger (versus a sense of entitlement) in your children and at the same time, not deprive them of material comfort?”


I love what one of the speakers said.
He didn’t give ‘baon‘ or allowance to his daughter.

At a young age, as early as Grade 1, he taught his daughter to earn her own money.
He did this by asking his daughter to read a book for at least 30 minutes a day and she’ll make 50 pesos (1 USD) per day. Whether the daughter reads for 30 minutes or 2 hours, she gets 50 pesos per day.

If the daughter needed more money for her art materials or she wants to buy other things, one way she can make more money is by writing a book report from the book she read. Then his Dad would pay her the cost of the book.

It’s also very important to note what the speaker said,

I didn’t pay her to do house chores. You don’t pay your family members to be part of a family. They are already part of the family. Doing house chores is what you do as part of the family.”

His daughter grew up to be a very intelligent, grounded, well-accomplished young woman who is making waves in Europe.

HIGHLIGHT (Lesson)

Stay humble and hungry to learn.

Call to ACTION

When I speak with corporate leaders, business leaders, and HR professionals, one of the problems they deal with is the high attrition rate.

When I asked them what they think contributes to the high attrition rate, two of the top reasons they cited were:

  1. Employees or team members felt they lacked personal and professional growth.
  2. Employees or team members don’t find meaning in what they’re doing.

If you are an employee and you feel demotivated to work and you’re thinking of quitting, could it be because you also feel you’re not growing personally and professionally at work? Or could it be because you can’t see how your purpose aligns with your work?

If you’re an HR professional or a corporate/business leader and you feel frustrated by the lack of engagement and enthusiasm you see among your employees and teams, investing in your team’s growth through training and workshops would do wonders.

I feel sad when I see employees just clocking in and out — staying in jobs they’re not passionate about and producing mediocre results. When employees do this, they are doing themselves a disservice. Why live a mediocre life when you can live a fulfilled life? They are also doing their company, their clients, and society a disservice.


What’s the solution?
What if we ignite the fire inside you, uncover your purpose, and see how it aligns with your profession?  

To help ignite possibilities and enthusiasm in individuals and teams, I’m hosting two online training/workshops in February 2024! This will be LIVE, online via Zoom.
