The Power of Voice

Paraverbal use of the Voice

Voice affects more than one third of the impact of speech. Learning to use it to create “turmoil” in the speech and point out key points or to “slip” uncomfortable details is paramount.

While speaking is the most commonly used medium of communication it is often the most misleading one. When we communicate, our voice is the medium through which we expose the analogical message of our speech: our emotions. When words and emotions are not in line, speaking becomes a dangerous tool. Knowing how to manage and direct your voice tone, volume, timbre and rhythm (as well as pauses), makes you effective and credible, in a few words: a leader.
