What do you sound like reassuring your team about the economy on an audio-conference? How do they interpret you?
People can quickly hear the sound of your voice to pick up on your attitude. It pays to be aware – everyone else is!
Fortunately, there is an excellent tool with you most of the time. You can record your voice or use video to see how you look in practice. You can also record the live event and review it later to enhance your awareness.
Improve how you are managing your vocal tone. Start by practicing your pitch variations, rate, and volume when saying the following sentence:
“Bill won’t be coming home today.”
Make it sound indifferent; make it sound exciting, and make it sound sad. Record yourself on your phone and do it until it seems authentic to you. It will instantly give you more vocal mastery!
