ARE YOU SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO IMPACT AND HAVE GREATER INFLUENCE IN THE WORLD?
ARE YOU A CONSULTANT, TRAINER, BUSINESS OWNER, LEADER AND WANT TO BE HEARD CLEARLY AND BE RESPECTED BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE THAT YOU FEEL MUST BE DELIVERED AND UNDERSTOOD ?
ARE YOU AWARE THAT YOUR VOCAL TONALITY EFFECTS HOW YOU ARE PERCEIVED AND THE RESULT YOU ARE GETTING IN YOUR COMMUNICATION?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions? This is what I do.
My name is Maria Pellicano and for the past 20 years I have worked with singers, actors , business leaders, CEO, doctors, trainers, speakers and essentially anyone who is in the business of influencing and impacting others to take action.
Whether that is on a platform before a live audience or on a webinar or podcast or in a private conversation, or negotiation I have noticed repetitively that vocal tonality matters and its effecting how your audience is responding to you and the perceptions they have about what you are saying.
Now can you imagine what I would sound like right now if my voice started to sound like Micky Mouse or if I began to slow right down and think as I speak. What about if I started to speak with a vocal tonality that made you feel intimidated or if my voice sounded nasally or monotone. Check out my article on the 7 elements that empower your leadership with vocal tonality.
Professional voice users such as politicians and successful motivational speakers have a vocal coach to help create quality speeches and to help maintain a healthy sustainable voice. People are paid more because of the tone of voice they use. For reference Click here.
Check out the difference in Margaret Thatcher’s voice once she had a vocal coach work on her voice tonality, this link will show you before and after. Click here.
Research is telling us that our brains store words deeper when they carry emotion. Your audience will remember what you say when they feel the emotion of what you are saying. That is they will remember what you say for better or worse. You see we will always remember the feeling of what is being said more so than the words themselves. For reference Click here.
Our vocal tonality is an unconscious behaviour in speech and often we are not aware enough of how our voice impacts others. Even though we may mean well and have a message of great value and importance we can be often misunderstood and not heard simply because our tonality did not match our message. Click here for reference.
We can build enormous credibility and respect when we release emotion and authenticity in our words. We all want to believe and be inspired by a speaker who walks their talk and says what they mean and means what they say.
I am reminded of the spontaneous speech by Martin Luther King Junior which was delivered on 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. when he was prompted by Mahalia jackson….he said, “I have a dream… that my four little children will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character….”.
Here we are captured and taken on a journey simply because of the passion and conviction he displayed in his words. He even used his real life situation to bring the message to the hearts of the people. He included his own personal situation into the message.
You see the biggest thing I have found in my career is that it’s not what you want to do that matters but how you implement it.
“IT IS NOT WHAT YOU SAY BUT HOW YOU SAY IT THAT MATTERS MOST”
We all know what we should do but often fail at the implementation of finer details that polish and add quality to the results we are wanting.
So if you are someone who wants to impact and influence others with your words, if you want be noticed and remembered for words that change lives and cause others to become better people you must find out what tonality you carry when you speak words and how you are delivering this tonality will effect the success of your speaking.
