  • Speak in a melody pattern that sounds interesting and engaging know as business intonation 
  • Eliminate bad speech habits of sounding monotone, mumbling, upspeak behavior, trailing off before finishing a thought, vocal fry at the end the end of sentences or talking too fast
  • Speak with articulation that is crisp and sharp
  • Learn strategies to eliminate the three types of up-speak behavior
  • Gain strategies to stop talking too fast
  • Pose questions that sound commanding and drives leadership perception
  • Get the cure for “Verbal Viruses” and stop saying, uh- so, like, um, ya-know
  • Eliminate weak vocabulary
  • Eliminate voice habits that sound thin, nasal, weak or in too high of a pitch
  • Speak with a stronger and more powerful voice with natural projection
  • Speak from a full diaphragm breath to say your longer and more complex thoughts
  • Always communicate in a style that sounds confident and smart
  • Upspeak. I actually call this the “kiss of death for professional women”. This is when sentences end on a higher note instead of a lower one or go up in pitch randomly in statements. Women who have the upspeak habit send non-verbal signals that they are not confident with what they are saying. It’s very distracting and positions women to not sound credible or smart.
  • Speaking with a voice that is too thin or high. Higher and thinner voices are not well perceived and it really hurts a women’s leadership image and credibility because it sounds “young”.  People want to conduct business with women, not girls.
  • Nasality. This is when the voice is placed toward the nasal cavity, creating a thin, high voice that sounds like it coming out from the nose. This is not the best voice to use in a professional setting where the goal is to advance and grow in a career.
  • Vocal fry: This happens at the end of a sentence where the last couple of words has a rough, pitch quality. Is sounds like a small “fry” sound. 
  • Some women are simply not crushing it. Holding back and having soft articulation or not speaking with deliberate intention or from their stronger and more powerful voice.

These behaviors can absolutely be changed and women can learn to speak with better dynamics and a stronger and more powerful voice. This course teaches the three most important skills for business communication and public speaking known as intonation, strong and powerful voicing and diaphragm breathing and has been specifically designed for women. 

In addition, how to enhance leadership through communication such as posing questions that get results, eliminating weak vocabulary and poor speech habits that hurts credibility is also covered.

Chapter 1 & 2: The Rhythm and Melody for Amazing Communication Skills

Chapter One- teaches how to speak in a style that is engaging and interesting. People who learn to speak with skilled intonation and perceived as smart and better leaders. Participants will learn a specific strategy for learning how to speak with a more controlled rate of speed, making articulation sharp and crisp and having naturally improved projection. This speaking style is more commanding and enhances leadership qualities. 

Chapter Two- will teach how to use the skill at a more advanced level that will be ideal for delivering presentations, leading meetings, speaking with more persuasion, and connecting with individuals. Other facets of leadership through communication are also taught such as how to pose questions that get you the results you want, common vocabulary words that weakens statements and common bad speech habits will be revealed with strategies on how to eliminate them. 

Chapter 3: Speaking from a Stronger and More Powerful Voice

The second skill is learning how to speak with a stronger and more powerful voice. There is a place in the lower throat where the vocal folds function at their best to produce a voice that is rich and vibrant. This e-learning course teaches that placement while eliminating a thin, high or nasal sounding voice.

Chapter 4: How to Speak with a Diaphragm Breath

The final mechanical skill is diaphragm breathing. Many people speak on a shallow breath or even run out of breath when talking. Speaking from a diaphragm breath will allow for more comfort and better projection. In addition, a full diaphragm breath along with good speech melody creates effective and calm speakers.
