This post from the Leadership Post seems very timely for me, coming into my inbox as it did on the very night I took over as president of Guildford Speakers Club. Being a speaker, teacher, mother and toastmaster I’m only too aware of the power of my words. I’m constantly watching the way I say things. I repeat sentences to ensure my instructions are understood. I use short declaritive statements when I want to be emphatic. I vary the tone of my voice frequently, especially while teaching, as learners rarely listen to the actual words you say but they do respond to the tone in which you say it.
So, no matter what you’re doing in your life, if you speak while doing it you will find this article timely, thought-provoking and possibly challenging. Enjoy!
