This course begins by teaching a simple strategy that will improve your intonation, the rhythm and melody behind interesting speech and articulation. This is the model used by political figures, trained CEO’s and news broadcasters. The participants then learn how to speak from their optimal pitch range. This is the place in your throat where your voice performs at its best. We then work on diaphragm breathing. See the participants go from a chest breath to a full and more comfortable breath. Speaking with controlled intonation is easier from a full and relaxed breath. It is also a major strategy for controlling nerves. Watch the participants who began the course with mumbling, spoke with upspeak at the end of sentences or spoke with a thinner, higher or more nasal voice catch these behaviors and then began the process of eliminating them. You will see yourself in them and be taught the skills to change your speech.
The program then continues with important aspects of successful communication such as learning how to be calm under pressure, strategies for leading meetings and enhancing leadership, and new approaches for designing and delivering presentations.
The program begins by learning a strategy where information can be easily chunked. This strategy is helpful for unplanned questions or having to give a 5-10 presentation where it would be unimpressive leadership to bring notes. The program then switches to body language techniques. There are ways to pose your body that builds up your confidence. You will learn how to detect the body signals of your team or audience members when interest is lost. There are body signals that reveal that you may get a “no” to your proposal or your information is not believed. There are signals for processing information. When you can identify these signals you then hold the power to take the next move to redirect your audience’s state of mind.
Throughout the program you will watch the break-out sessions where the participants receive feedback and change their behaviors. You will have an opportunity to watch their small presentations and identify your own behaviors. Each presentation has points where on-the-spot coaching happens and the participant can make changes after hearing specific feedback. This can be invaluable information and training for you from the comfort of your home or office.
