Talk is made human by the tone of our voices. The tone in which we speak carries some of the message of the words, and is powerful enough to be able to alter meanings.
Voice is a description of the unique, distinctive voice of your personal brand. This should cover:
– Personality: is it playful, cheeky and fun or personal, inspiring, straightforward and active?
– Rhythm and pace: are you short and sharp or musical?
– Vocabulary: plain and simple or rich, poetic?
Tone is how to use your voice in different situations. I think empathy is what makes the difference between just meeting the other needs and really engaging him.
How To Refine Your Voice
Before you can refine your voice for your presentations, you must first know how you sound. Recording yourself speaking is the best way to get an accurate assessment.
To strengthen the impact of your voice, learn from experts by watching for example Ted Talks videos.
With so many studies telling you how to speak, knowing the best way to communicate can be confusing. If you’re puzzled, remember that authenticity always wins. First and foremost, you should always be true to yourself.
