How to Make a Positive Impact with your Voice

Posted on Friday, August 23, 2013 by Positivevoice

Your voice makes an impact. You may or may not like the impact your voice makes, but, all the same, it has an effect on your listeners. One of the contributing factors here is the tone you use when you speak. Your vocal tone can win you both friends and enemies. It is not so much the words you use, but the way in which you utter them. One of the tools I often use with clients is hypnotherapy. During sessions, my words play a very small part in helping clients to relax. It is my pace, tone, rhythm and breathing that serves to relax people.

Your vocal tone does not just affect others, though. It also has a huge bearing on how you feel. If you can be positive and cause your voice to reflect this, your emotions will travel on an upward spiral. The opposite is also true. A great philosophy to practice is humour. If you decide to see humour where others would take offence, you will maintain your positivity.

When I speak to people, I often intuitively send out waves of calm. Another way of doing this would be to communicate with people with a sense of ‘unconditional, positive regard’. I find that when I focus entirely on them, and see them in the best possible light my vocal tone mirrors this intention. How you treat others has a huge impact on how they respond to you, so the more you do this, the more pleasant your encounters with others will be.

This is just one of the many things that you can do to transform your interactions with others. If you would like to have others hanging off your every word, check out my home study course: Vocal Impact
