The Spoken Word
Be it face-to-face or over the phone, messages delivered in easy-to-comprehend short sentences, in a clear and articulate manner, with a strong, powerful voice, go a long way in exuding self-confidence even when you may not feel that way.
- Speak powerfully. People with strong, dynamic voices are perceived as having more self-confidence, so make sure you talk with power in person or over the phone.
- Modulate your speech delivery, breathe regularly and if needed slow down your rate of speech. This will add impact to the words spoken and improve overall speech quality.
- Take ownership of your ideas and deliver them with the importance they deserve. When you speak with determination, it shows you are in control of what you are saying, and influences the listener to process what you are saying.
- Eliminate filler sounds, words and phrases like “um”, “uh”, “like”, “right?”, “well”, “maybe”, “you know”, “I mean. These contain no real meaning, but are often used to keep the speech flowing. Be conscious of how many times you use them and reduce them slowly.
