    How to Sound Smart, Confident, and More Engaging

    Train your staff to speak more clearly and confidently while leading meetings, delivering presentations, or communicating with clients. This course will teach your team how to speak with smart-sounding melody patterns with more vocal variety, moving inflection, and sharper articulation while speaking at a rate that is controlled and sounds interesting known as intonation. Speaking with skilled intonation is the most important skill for effective business communication. Team members will learn how to be more impactful with their communication while looking and sounding more confident. 

    By the end of Course One, team members will be able to do the following:

    • Speak using the “speech stairs strategy” to sound clear, smart, fluid, and confident
    • Speak with improved articulation and diction
    • Eliminate poor speech habits such as speaking too fast, sounding monotone, mumbling, trailing off, and using up-speak
    • Understand why speaking with intonation is the most important skill for effective communication
    • Turn new communication skills into habits by applying the speech notebook, speech triggers, and red-light drill exercises in the real world

    By the end of Course Two, team members will be able to do the following:

    • Identify the three types of up-speak behavior and utilize strategies to eliminate it

    How to Speak with a Stronger and More Powerful Voice

    Team members will learn how to speak in their optimal pitch range by producing vocal tones that are strong, powerful, and confident while keeping the voice safe from injury due to overuse. Tones that are too soft, weak, high in pitch, or nasal are ineffective and should be replaced with those that are strong and clear. Communication will sound professional and smart when spoken in the optimal pitch range.

    • Speak with a stronger and more powerful voice

    How to Diaphragm Breathe for More Effective and Powerful Communication


    How to Diaphragm Breathe for More Effective and Powerful Communication

    Team members will learn how to speak with a full diaphragm breath at the conversational level through our easy, four-step process. Speaking from a full breath allows speech to feel fluid and well-coordinated. Shallow chest breathing will be replaced with fuller and more comfortable breaths that project the voice for clear communication. If team members feel that speaking before others causes anxiety, diaphragmatic breathing is a great strategy for calming nerves.

    By the end of Course Four, team members will be able to do the following:

    • Learn how to speak using a full diaphragm breath at the conversational level
    • Understand how to coordinate diaphragmatic breathing and talking

    A Note from Liz

    It takes time to learn new habits. This course has been designed to take approximately six weeks for skill mastery. We recommend taking two to three weeks for Courses One and Two, one to two weeks for Course Three, and one to two weeks for Courses Four and Five. You control the pace—no need to rush. Take the time to practice these new skills. Once these skills become habits, they will become natural. Enjoy!
