Communication

The Right Kind of Loud

As Melinda Gates said – “A woman with a voice, is by definition, a strong woman.” Without our voice we are helpless preys to people and forces around us. We use it to draw boundaries for what we accept and don’t accept. We use it to express our needs and experiences. We use it to lead and show the way. And we use it to defend those who are dear to us. A strong voice is one of the most palpable leadership qualities we can have. And yet, many of us have little awareness about how our voice works and the power it holds. As much as 85% of all adults have been asked to be silent, it is common to have a low self esteem when it comes to the voice and what we want it to sound like. When it comes to speaking up, women face an extra level of challenges. From a nonverbal perspective, a deep pitch is signaling high status, giving the male voice an advantage. And men and women have different perceptions when it comes to filling the air with their speech, again in favor of the male voice. To bridge the gap, we need both strengthening of the voice as a communication tool as well as situational awareness that helps us prepare for high impact situations. This course will give you a new range of experiences with your voice, as well as insights about its effect on yourself and your listeners and what you can do to strengthen it. Along the way, we’ll uncover strategies for you to apply in your working environment and the sharing among us will deepen the learning. For the men in our course, there are takeaways about articulation, pitch and speaking patterns and for the women, projection, pitch and body expansion. It’s a personal journey with surprises, vulnerability, joy and wellbeing along the way. You and your voice will not be the same, you will have more confidence and you’ll have an increased presence when you face high-stake situations with desired influence.

Course Importance

The access we have to our own voice often translates into our confidence in the outer world when it comes to taking the room, speaking up at meetings and in situations when we need to draw our boundaries. In many cases, the process of accessing our voice can be transformative, with a new sense of self and deepened confidence.
