The Speaking Voice Matters
Speech Coach Sandra McKnight will tell you that
Communication is still the # 1 key to personal and career success.
Communication – the human connection – is basic to the business world.
How many times have you heard “choose your words wisely and express them confidently”.
People ask me all the time, why I am so passionate about teaching people to speak clearly, powerfully, and confidently. The answer is simple: the “speaking voice matters”. It is important that your voice is heard.
#1 QUESTION ASKED BY BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS AND EXECUTIVES
Today I would like to share my answer to the #1 question business people ask during their free voice analysis consultation
“What is the most important thing I can do right now to speak more persuasively and start getting more customers, clients and patients and making more money?”
As I am sure you understand, there is not a completely simple answer to this question, but I can give you three executive speaking skills that you MUST put in place, if you want to speak powerfully and persuasively with potential customers, and increase your bottom line.
3 Critical Voice Skills you need to Communicate Effectively
I am amazed at how many people don’t understand that the sound of their voice is directly connected to their success in life.
“The voice is the megaphone of the soul”, said ancient sages. Voice Power Studios’ translation, “The Voice is the megaphone of your Personal Power."
"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice and now that I have it I am not going to be silent.” Madelaine Albright, US Secretary of State.
When speaking professionally or personally, there are three voice skills that you need to project your Personal Power and communicate effectively.
Sandra McKnight & Warren Buffett agree: Communication Skills Increase your Net Worth!
In an article on Forbes.com, "Warren was asked "What habits did you cultivate in your 20s and 30s that you see as the foundation of success?"
Buffett responded "You've got to be able to communicate in life and it's enormously important. If you can't communicate and talk to other people and get across your ideas, you're giving up your potential."
During their free voice analysis consultation, many of my executive clients have echoed Warren’s words. Yesterday Rob head of marketing for a popular tech company said, “I need to be a better speaker and convey my thoughts more effectively in order to take my career to the next level. How can you help me.”
Rob is not alone. There are many executives, CEO’s, managers, technology professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, marketers, and salespeople struggling to convey their message clearly and succinctly in order to convince their customers, clients or patients of the virtues of their product or service.
Happy New Year! Kick off 2015 right!
A charismatic voice is a powerful communication asset! Are you using yours to its fullest?
Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles confirmed what Sandra McKnight has been saying for 25 years. “You can train your voice to sound charismatic” and engage your customers, clients and patients more easily, powerfully and successfully.
It is very rewarding to hear VPS clients say over and over again how training to consistently speak with confidence, clarity and charisma has meaningfully changed both their professional and personal lives.
