Happy Sounding People Win!
We are at the beginning of the year and people are wishing each other Happy New Year! This year let’s resolve to put the “positive vocal inflection” on the word Happy!
A happy sounding voice combined with a smile brings the best out in others and at the same time the best out in our selves. Let’s make a resolution to project positivity in our voice.
Executive Presence...A Shortcut to Success
Can “executive presence be learned or does it just take years on the job to develop?” is a question I hear quite often….Yes! “Presence” can be learned and in a very short time
I know you recognize it when you see it in executives, actors, race car drivers, Olympic gymnasts, to name a few professions. However what is it really?
"Speak Like a Pro" Techniques
Confidence!! Despite what you might have heard, confidence is not an elusive, mystical, magical gift given to a special few. For help many people turn to the highly recognized and valued Norman Vincent Peale’s "The Power of Positive Thinking" or to Tony Robbin'’ "Unleash the Power Within".
However, the one power most often overlooked, is the "Power of Your Own Voice". It is how you give voice to your personal power and how you articulate your positive thoughts.
What Executives can Learn from "Silent-Screen" Stars
Imagine you’re a young “silent screen” actor such as Charlie Chaplin or Greta Garbo. Your focus is ONE thing – getting the role that will make you a star.
After weeks, months, and years of dance classes, acting classes, mime classes, diets, skin treatments, and many auditions, you manage to master the necessary skills and you look great.
Successful Executives know this Secret
Some “gurus” out there claim to know “the ONE" secret to advancing quickly in your career and/or how to shoot your business to the top overnight.
Alas, if only this were so… then we could all plug this ONE magic idea into our business or career strategies and begin enjoying our newly acquired leisure time.
However “real secrets” do exist… One of the most powerful is your SPEAKING VOICE: It is the “secret” to sounding confident and charismatic and making sure your message is heard.
In fact, over my 25+ years of coaching executives and professionals, I have found that communicating in the most confident and charismatic way possible is the bottom line to selling yourself, your ideas, your products and your services.
