In six one hour coaching sessions over 12 weeks we will cover:
1. Speaker Credibility Assessment.
We will use a recorded piece to benchmark and assess your credibility as a speaker. This is based on the theory of rhetoric from Aristotle. We will look at content and delivery. From this assessment you will receive a clear indication of skills you will want to keep and hone and ones we may need to diminish and others we need to add in. We will discuss the kind of leadership voices that exist - where your default lies and areas for development.
2. Your Glimpse of Brilliance
What is it that you bring to the table that is unique to you? We will look at your glimpse of brilliance and how that impacts your communication style. We will look at ways to clear your clutter (things that are not your brilliance) and how you can leverage your brilliance more effectively.
Session 1 - The Mind.
Everything you think will leak out as you speak. So what are your thoughts around you as a speaker? We will look at the Circles of influence and see where you psychologically gravitate and deal with any imposter syndrome issues (should any appear).
Session 2 - The Body.
What does your body language say to your audience? How can we use body language to leverage connection and influence in your audience? We will look at tension release in the body through visualisation and breathing. Tension kills expressivity in voices and diminishes connection with others so is vital to tackle.
Session 3 - The Breath.
Your breath is the power to your voice - no breath no power. Correct breathing is also vital for long term vocal health for those who will or do use their voices heavily. It will also help find your optimum pitch - which will create ease on speaking and a richer vocal tone.
Session 4 - Voice
Will look at your voice quality and tone. How your voice sounds along with clarity and audibility will be essential for enabling listeners to easily connect with you and your content.
Session 5 - Voice & NVC
This session will look at how you create and keep listeners engaged using your voice and non-verbal communication. We will cover pace, pause, emphasis to start and then look at building energy towards action.
Session 6 - Recap and apply to speech that you are or would like to give.
We will apply all of the above to a speech you are going to give or would like to give. Re-benchmark and plan for the future.
