One Sure-Fire Way to Guarantee Your Career Advancement
This anecdote beautifully illustrates one of the most important reasons you may not be advancing in your career.
The director of operations for a small IT company, who was taking my online Speaking Voice Workshop, shared this comment. “I am currently hiring new people and many of the applicants look great on paper, however, when I interview them they are difficult to understand”. “I myself am an Israeli with an accent; however I am in this workshop to speak even better”.
#1 Way to Sound Positive & Be More Effective in Business
As the famous American song says, "Make someone happy and you will be happy too!" A happy positive sound is a powerful way to communicate confidently and inspire others to be confident. Use your voice in an uplifting and positive way and just watch how quickly the gift of positivity affects your client, patient, or customer.
A Great Opportunity to Speak for Success!
“If not You, Who? If not Now, When?”
It was a long time ago when this was said to me and it has stuck with me through the years for many reasons.
I know I’ve used it many times when helping clients to speak more confidently, clearly and powerfully. Too often they were slow to grasp the power of the speaking voice to be more influential in business and/or to make money in the market place. This uncertainty and indecision could cause them to miss out on a great opportunity for success.
One Guaranteed Step to Speaking Confidently
After teaching voice, speech & accent reduction for 25 years to over 40,000 people, I have seen how powerful and transformative it is to speak with a confident, clear and persuasive voice.
No matter where you are in the world, people who speak well are more successful in reaching their goals both personally and professionally.
The Wall Street Journal reports that CEOs who have trained their speaking voice remain in their jobs longer and make over $150,000 more a year. Why, because they have taken the time to develop a charismatic leadership voice.
“COMMUNICATION SAVVY” – VITAL CAREER SKILL IN 2016
Take a look at successful communicators and you’ll notice that, most of them have “communication savvy” and find it easy to sell themselves, their ideas, their strategies and their dreams.
Which one of these statements would you want your manager to say about you?
1. He is an excellent researcher, but lacks the “communication savvy” needed to sell his ideas.
2. He is an expert in his field and a very “savvy communicator” who can sell his ideas.
When it comes to communicating successfully, there are many basics to consider… the over-all message, spontaneous thinking, your words, the person or persons you are speaking with, the time and place of your meeting, your physical presentation, etc.
