Do you sense there’s something about your spoken communication and tone of voice that is preventing you from being taken seriously as a professional?  Do you sound like the expert you are and the leader or innovator you know you can be?  Many women mistakenly think that to have authority or be acknowledged for expertise they need to sound more like men, so they often hold back their expressiveness and stress their voices by playing unnaturally low pitches, sending an inauthentic message, undermining their spoken communications. But the first voice of authority in most lives is Mother and a natural, rich, healthily produced woman’s voice gets attention and respect.  This “quick & dirty” workshop will let you in on what your employer, colleagues and clients are unable or possibly even afraid to tell you about your vocal tone & speech skills that, if changed, could help you move up and become more fully realized and successful in your career.

Start enhancing your leadership presence by:
   > Learning what the sound of your voice is really saying about you.
   > Identifying and banishing what’s “choking” your voice.
   > Gaining exercises and practical tips that you can put to work immediately.
