A Bird? A Plane? No! It’s Your Expert Voice!
There comes a moment in every woman’s professional life when she needs to access her most authoritative, powerful, and expert voice – even when she is experiencing trepidation, and her insides are quivering like a scared Chihuahua.
The “expert voice” is the manifestation of your most confident self. The real you shows up – large and in charge. It is the expression of your thoughts, feelings, opinions, and ideas – and when you use it, people listen, and they see you as a person to be respected, valued, and promotable.
You know – and feel – when you are being your most courageous and authentic self. It feels right. It feels powerful. It feels inspiring. Yet, too often, the shadow self shows up: nervous, tentative, and full of self doubt. What does that voice sound like? Well, as one boss put it,
“She always sounds like she’s asking a question. I never feel like she believes what she’s saying.”
This workshop provides you the space, time, and guidance to develop your Expert Voice – the voice that means business. We will walk through several vocal, visual, and verbal exercises to help you develop a three-part strategy to call upon your Expert Voice when you need her. We will even give that voice a name!
Here’s a Sneak Peek at the Agenda:
Overview and Vocal Warm-up: Establish focus, identify one area you want to work on
Self-Assessment and Practice Rounds: When do you lose power? What happens to your voice when you feel anxious?
Aligning Body Language and Tone of Voice: Movement and vocal exercises to get your physical self aligned with your emotional self.
Identifying Mental/Emotional and Kinesthetic Cues: Each participant will choose an image, a phrase, a word to call upon when opportunities surface, but fear is threatening to hijack that opportunity.
Practice and Feedback: Fun practice rounds with a partner resulting in actionable feedback you can use right now.
Wrap-up: Motivation lasts 14 days. We’ll make commitments to each other before closing the workshop with a final activity.
Please join me! Let’s get your inner voice to agree with your audible voice. When they align – look out!
