The participants then learn how to speak from their optimal pitch range. This is the place in your throat where your voice performs at its best.
We then work on diaphragm breathing. See the participants go from a chest breath to a full and more comfortable breath. Speaking with controlled intonation is easier from a full and relaxed breath. It is also a major strategy for controlling nerves.
Watch the participants who began the course with mumbling, upspeak at the end of sentences or speaking with a thinner, higher or more nasal voice, catch these behaviors and begin the process of eliminating them. You may see some of your behaviors in the participants.
The program then continues with important aspects of successful communication such as learning how to be calm under pressure, strategies for leading meetings and enhancing leadership, and new approaches for designing and delivering presentations.
The program continues by learning a strategy on how to chunk information known as visual mapping. This strategy is helpful for unplanned questions or having to give a 5-10 presentation where you would not bring notes.
The program then switches to body language techniques. There are ways to pose your body that builds confidence. You will learn how to detect the body signals of your audience when interest is lost. There are body signals that reveal you may get a “no” to your proposal or your information is not believed. There are signals for processing information. When you can identify these signals you then hold the power to take the next move to redirect your audience’s state of mind.
Throughout the program you will watch the break-out sessions where the participants receive feedback and change their behaviors. You will have an opportunity to watch their presentations and observe the coaching. It is helpful to observe the participants catching their errors and improve their skills from their feedback.
