Before you make an important first impression at a job interview, client meeting, family function, or in any other situation in which you want to present your best image, do you usually...
- Bathe or shower and either shave or apply makeup? Of course.
- Scrutinize your clothes and and fix your hair? Always!
- Give yourself a final once-over to make sure everything is perfect? Absolutely.
But if you're like 99% of people, you neglect one major image enhancer. And it turns out that it can absolutely make or break the impression you want to make, the deal you want to close, and the job you want to get.
There's one part of your "public self" that makes a faster, more powerful, and longer-lasting impression than any other. Yet, unlike your appearance, it's something you probably don't give any thought to at all.
Before I tell you what this crucial element is, consider this brief story:
A well-known multibillion-dollar Wall Street financial institution had just experienced the best quarter in its history. The CFO was set to announce this news in a speech he was delivering to a group of shareholders, executives, and analysts.
The CFO painstakingly prepared the content of his speech. He memorized it thoroughly and practiced it for hours. And because he had nothing but great information to share, he was anticipating an excited, enthusiastic response.
But what he got was just the opposite.
When he finished speaking and began to take questions, he could tell that something had gone terribly wrong. It was clear that the audience felt he was hiding something, that they were suspicious of him and believed there was some sort of "bad news" he was covering up.
He was stunned by this turn of events. So stunned, in fact, that he decided to call in an expert to help analyze the situation - a world-renowned vocal coach whose training and techniques are the secret weapons of some of the most popular, persuasive communicators around.
The vocal coach was flown in immediately, and the two men sat down to discuss the problem. The CFO had a videotape of the speech that he had planned to review in the meeting. He reached for the videocassette and stood up to put it in the VCR, but the consultant stopped him. "Don't bother," he said. "I don't need to see it."
The CFO was shocked. "What do you mean? I brought you all the way here to tell me where I went wrong in this speech. You need to see it if you're going to figure out why it flopped!" The consultant shook his head. "No, I don't. I already know why it flopped. I knew it the moment we started talking."
When it comes to important communication, most of us are like the CFO. We spend the bulk of our time worrying about what we are going to say: the words we'll use and the way those words fit together to express whatever it is we are trying to get across.
But when it comes to powerful, effective communication, the truth is how you say your words matters far more than the words themselves!
I'm talking about YOUR VOICE! That's right! The way your voice sounds is an unbelievably critical component in any successful communication.
Research has shown that the words you speak account for about 7 percent of what makes you believable to someone else. Just 7 percent!
So what accounts for the other 93%? Tonality and physiology: the way you sound when you're communicating and what your body is doing while you're communicating.
The instant you begin speaking, people listening to you begin to form very definite opinions and judgments about your intelligence, your personality, your sincerity, your authority, your abilities, your background, and more.
These opinions begin to form and solidify within the first five seconds of your speech — long before the actual words you're saying begin to take on any significant meaning for the listener. And once established, these opinions can be extremely difficult to change. Even when the words you're saying completely contradict the message your tonality is sending.
That's why even the most carefully worded, painstakingly practiced speech, presentation, or conversation can go completely awry if you have not mastered "Vocal Power."
If you've ever been surprised by the way your voice sounds on a recording, then you know that the voice you hear in your head is very different from the one the rest of the world hears.
Now you can communicate with charisma, clarity, and absolute precision using the secret weapon of the stars!
People who use their voice to make a living — like actors, singers, radio personalities, motivational speakers, and politicians — are acutely aware of this. They know that if they want to succeed, they need to be able to communicate clearly and precisely, and they need to be able to accurately predict their audiences' reactions and opinions.
As a result, these stars spend a lot of time and money learning how to understand and gain control over their voice. And over and over again, they've turned to one man to help them do it: Roger Love.
Roger Love has spent more than 25 years helping to build some of the most successful talents in the business and entertainment worlds. He's the vocal coach to Anthony Robbins, Suze Orman, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and Glenn Beck, as well as other well-known celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon, John Corbett, Mandy Moore, Billy Idol, Alicia Silverstone, Joaquin Phoenix, Martin Landau, Esai Morales, Rebecca Romijn, Milla Jovovich, Victoria Principal, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Tyra Banks, Eminem, Iggy Pop, and more.
In his Nightingale-Conant audio program Vocal Power: Speaking with Confidence, Clarity, and Conviction, Roger Love will teach you how to truly understand the power of your voice, maximize its pluses, and minimize its flaws. You'll exude confidence and charisma every single time you speak, and when you do, your "audiences" — your clients, colleagues, kids, spouse, and all the other people you encounter through the course of a day — will hear exactly what you want them to hear.
In the very first session of Vocal Power, you'll take an Instant Evaluation that will enable you to hear yourself the way other people hear you, and identify where your vocal problems may lie.
Is your voice too gravelly or too breathy? Too low or too high? Are you using too much air, or not enough? You'll find out for sure when you take this evaluation. And then you'll discover what you can do about it.
Create vocal masterpieces with the
universal ingredients of speaking success
Volume. Tone. Pitch. Melody. Pace. If you're not a singer, you probably don't give much thought to these things. But every time you speak, each one of these elements comes into play — for better or for worse.
You might think of them as raw ingredients. Combine them in the right amounts and in the right way using a great recipe, and you'll create something fantastic. Throw them together with no thought and no plan, and you could end up with a disaster on your hands.
More than anything else, communicating your message and emotions clearly is a matter of using volume, tone, pitch, melody, and pace in the right way.
In Vocal Power, you'll learn how to identify and control each of these elements in your own voice to achieve the desired vocal effect: confident in a job interview... calm when sharing a potentially upsetting piece of news... authoritative when conducting a meeting with employees or making a presentation to clients... or whatever quality you want to express in a given situation.
And that's just the beginning. In 12 "how-to"-packed sessions, you'll learn how to:
- Instantly sound stronger and more powerful by doing just one thing differently
- Master the "secret voice" that will miraculously change every sound that comes out of your mouth
- Create deliberate, predictable effects on your listeners by controlling the sounds you bring into your voice
- Match your voice to a wide range of messages, circumstances, or situations without ever sounding artificial or unnatural
- Eliminate annoying, distracting "fillers" such as um and uh from your speech forever
- Maintain ideal posture throughout any speech or presentation without giving it a second thought
- Record the perfect voicemail message (you'll never cringe at your own voice again!)
- Permanently conquer stage fright
- And so much more!
You'll find that the people you encounter throughout your day will respond differently to you too. They'll listen more closely, express more interest, and respond to your communications in exactly the ways you want them to.
You'll also learn how to align your newfound vocal power with a confident physiology and mindset. No more awkward hands, shuffling feet, or darting eyes. Roger will help you identify and break the bad mind and body habits you have now, and replace them with gestures, postures, expressions, and ideas that communicate strength and confidence from the inside out.
