Voice Capacity and Status

This challenging topic arises when people discover that the ways in which they have used their voices in the past no longer serve them in current situations.

In addition, voice capacity comes into play when a person of perceived lesser status needs to set boundaries and standards in their communication and interactions with people of perceived higher status.

Where do you start?

  1. Get to know your voice well.  By doing this, you will be able to identify less-supportive and more-supportive voice behaviours.  This will allow you to identify and choose your particular voice behaviours which  advance connection and build relationships.
  2. Identify where, when and how your voice lets you down.  What are your unique triggers that allow your voice to go off-track?  How do weariness, tension, frustration, joy and harmony play out in your voice?
  3. Know how to notice and then manage changes in your voice so that you can make early adjustments to your vocal impact across a range of circumstances.
  4. Increase the confidence you have in yourself because you know how to manage your voice each time you speak. No matter when. No matter where.  No matter who is present.
