When it comes to image, most people believe that their visual image is the pièce de résistance. And, there is no doubt that it is very important both professionally and personally. Have you ever considered, however, the image that your voice projects?
Often we are so concerned with how we look, that we give no consideration to how we sound. While 55% of the image you project deals with your visual, 37% is relegated to your speaking voice. Without a doubt, there is much that can be done to improve your visual image. But were you are that there is actually much that can be done to improve your vocal image as well?
Many people wrongly assume that there is nothing that can be done to change their speaking voice. In fact, the following 5 misconception are generally believed by most people.
1. The voice on my answering machine or voicemail is not how I sound.
2. I sound like my mother or father and genetics determines how I sound.
3. The only way I can increase my volume is by yelling or shouting.
4. I was born soft-spoken and cannot change it.
5. I’m stuck with the voice I’ve got.
Imagine speaking with a voice that actually complements or even surpasses your visual image. Yes, you do have a better speaking voice inside of you and the right voice training can show you how to find it.
