Method - voice

Your voice is a musical instrument, so why not learn to play it well?
I’m not talking about singing, but just simply your natural speaking voice.

We use our voice every day, but rarely do we stop to find out how it works or, indeed, where it comes from. Naturally your voice has a great range, a great subtlety, and variation. But how much can you trust your voice to speak for you? And how well do you use it?

A good voice will help you get your message across. Your voice is part of who you are, part of your identity, and an expression of your humanity. As such your voice can convey all manner of thoughts, feelings and emotions; power, purpose, clarity and conviction, empathy, enthusiasm, and interest. Successful speakers, actors, and leaders, can change the minds and hearts of their listeners in a moment – just by their voice!

In conversation, presentation, or on the phone, your voice can say so much about you - irrespective of the words you’re saying. With a little technical awareness and practical exercise you could soon have your voice working for you. You can develop a richer and broader tonal range, for example, you can have much greater vocal dexterity. And, as in music, silence is as important as sound. Knowing how to pause, receive, repeat, and, refrain will help you and your listeners to engage more readily, in a much warmer way and with a greater understanding of
you and what it is you’re saying.

Finding your voice, being able to voice your opinion, having a voice of authority, will surely get you recognised and appreciated as the talented and informed individual you really are.
