Professional sales and leadership training can be very expensive. In fact, the cost can be so high that most small business owners quickly discard the idea of introducing a high-caliber leadership speaker or trainer to their employees.
Rather than assume that the goal of providing world-class leadership training to your team is out of reach, you should instead keep reading to discover how the best small business owners and team leaders get creative to ensure their teams receive the best training available.
The fact is that you do not have to pay airline and lodging expenses, on top of a hefty speaking fee, in order to share the teachings of today’s most enlightened experts.
Whether a famous leadership speaker or trainer lived a century ago or is currently touring the country, your team can benefit from their teachings using resources that are free and easily accessible.
The secret is to identify how to successfully, and ethically, leverage the speaker’s material for the benefit of your employees.
CAUTION! Once you begin using these creative tactics for providing high-quality leadership presentations in your staff meetings, your team will have higher expectations of you for future gatherings.
Here are just a few quick ideas for free leadership training to get you started:
YouTube.com – Did you know that most successful speakers post videos of their various speeches online? Sometimes a video will contain a short but memorable piece of footage. Other times the video will contain a famous speaker’s entire speech!
Fortunately, anyone can watch these videos at no cost. Now imagine getting your staff together to watch one of the most famous motivational speakers on the planet… Zig Ziglar.
Take a moment now to watch Zig present an amazing life lesson.
Okay, now ask yourself if anyone on your team could benefit from this lesson? If the material can assist you in filling a leadership void on your team, then make good use of it!

I love this website! Each video can help a leader to emphasize a critical leadership lesson, or to initiate important discussion among team members. Perhaps you will even develop a quick team building exercise for your staff to complete after watching one of these short films.
Consider how your staff might respond when you begin the meeting by asking them to view this thought-provoking movie on - what else? Rock Solid Leadership!
Get creative! The ways in which leaders can identify and utilize quality leadership tools are limited only by your own imagination.
Now you realize that no matter where you reside, whether you live in a small rural town or far away in a small developing county, as long as you have access to a good Internet connection you have the ability to introduce your employees to the best leadership speakers and trainers in the world.

In my last newsletter I told you about an exciting opportunity I received to participate as a featured speaker for an upcoming one-hour global tele-class.
The slightly revised title of the presentation is:
Here is a detailed description of what I will be speaking about:
Get on the right path to conquering your debt. Give yourself the gift of living a debt free lifestyle. Learn how giving to others leads to greater rewards. Discover how thousands of ordinary hard working people are creating extraordinary online businesses in their spare time to create a brighter financial future.
Richard Gorham, author of 10 Steps to Conquer Debt and 10 Days to New Income, details how he teaches his readers to successfully pay off debt by following proven strategies of personal finance. In addition, learn how to pay off debt more quickly by creating long lasting streams of new income.
"Listeners will not hear any sort of "get rich quick" sales pitch during any of my presentations", Gorham says. "Being financially successful is not difficult if you follow a proven plan and commit yourself to providing tremendous value to your customers. The secret is to create a home-based business doing what you love to do in your spare hours."
Just getting by - is simply not good enough! In order to live life fully you must be in a financial position to take full advantage of opportunities as they arise. Taking back control of your financial circumstances is 100% achievable if you adopt a systematic process for eliminating debt and building wealth.
The date and time I will be speaking LIVE is April 27, 2010 at 9pm Eastern Time.

If a certain subject jumps out, you may decide to have your entire team listen in. For example, I recently registered to attend a free tele-class about Health Coaching and Training. I think it might fit in nicely with the Leadership-Tools.com website so I'm excited to see what I can learn about this area that is growing in popularity.
