Are you a senior manager presenting papers at a conference or boardroom meeting? Perhaps you are a manager presenting to colleagues or staff on a regular basis? Or you have to present in an interview situation for a job or university place? Maybe you want to apply for a promotion or enhance your career prospects?
Your voice is one of the most effective communication tools that you possess. Voice coaching for business is about making sure that you are comfortable speaking and putting yourself across well in ALL situations you come across in your professional life, plus many of our clients report the benefits in their personal life too. Key aims are different for each individual and incorporate the performance aspects of a speech/presentations and the nuances of one-to-one communication for which ever areas you wish to work on.
Our services cater for the needs of each individual that we work with. One-to-one voice coaching begins with an initial consultation to assess your voice and related communication skills and to evaluate your strengths and requirements. Individualised programmes are written and progress is monitored using a learning contract made up of SMART goals.
Work in our sessions vary depending on your needs and objectives, but generally cover these areas:
- Body & Breathing
- Speech (e.g. specific vocal exercises)
- Voice Education
- Performance (relevant to your situation)
Some reasons to use voice coaching:
- Improve the sound of your voice when giving presentations
- Sound more confident in specific situations - for example on the telephone, in a group or face to face
- Learn how to speak with more power and control when needed (but still sound authentic!)
- Learn how to project efficiently and effectively so that you are heard
- Strengthen your voice to last through the working day
Voice coaching helps you find YOUR voice. We don't work on changing your personality, we work together to empower you to find a voice that feels more authentic to yourself. As your voice develops you may find that your confidence comes across in social and personal areas of your life thus enhancing your well-being.
Some people come for voice coaching with more personal needs. Many around being heard or understood appropriately, others lack confidence in projecting their much needed authority in senior management positions. Some just really don't like the sound of their own voice. These are all areas we can work on in the sessions. And we are sure there are many others so please feel free to call and discuss whether voice coaching would be appropriate for you.
