COMMUNICATION : TONE OF VOICE

Standard

Let me start with example and practise. What does each word emphasis communicate. Read and repeat the same sentence a few times by empathising on word marked in BOLD

I don’t think you should go.”-  I’m communicating what I think, it’s my opinion.

“I don’t think you should go.” That means I disagree.

“I don’t think you should go.” Well, I’m not sure but that’s what I think / uncertain

“I don’t think you should go.” Well clearly here I’m saying, you shouldn’t be the one to go let somebody else go.- Instruction

“I don’t think you should go.” You shouldn’t be obligated to go that’s what I’m communicating there-Persuasion

 “I don’t think you should go.” You shouldn’t go but maybe you can be involved in another way –assessment

Remember you have to articulate for success. When the internet first emerged into the workplace and was called the world wide web. What a tongue twister. But a good reminder that you have to practice clear articulation if you want to find your best voice.

Before you start with some of these articulation practice lines, stretch and relax your facial muscles.

Big mouth. Warm up your jaw by saying, “Round and round.” And work your articulation much more than you would in daily conversation. Over articulating is something you should definitely do if you’re speaking in public. Practice by saying, “Up and down”, and warm up your vocal cords like a singer sing along, la la la.

Now the muscles and cords are warmed up, it’s time for some tongue twisters. Record yourself saying these.

  • Roberta ran rings around the Roman ruins.
  • How many cookies could a good cook cook, if a good cook could cook cookies?
  • Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

Finding your best voice will not happen overnight. Some things you can continue to do after reading my article, is record yourself so that you can go back and listen to and get feedback from trusted others. Practice standing and seated. Smile if you tend to sound too serious. Read children stories to your kids, if you are told that you are too monotonous. Keep working on sounding natural. With the right pitch, volume, inflection, and articulation, to cultivate your best speaking voice.

On regular basis Keep Practising by Taking a deep breath, in filing your diaphragm and as you exhale, place your hand on your stomach to feel that breath coming out. Let the air come out as the sound streams from your mouth. Repeat as you stand and you feel air following your sounds all the way from diaphragmto your throat and your mouth. Now, say something. For example, sing a happy birthday songas you breathe in and out.

Small but excellent TIPS….. Guys I have done it and sure you can do it.
