Intuit: Executive Presence - Boost #1


Vocal Variety

We break Vocal Variety into five components, each beginning with a “P” (to make them easier to remember). They are:

Pace: Fast & Slow
Pitch: High & Low
Pause: Musical Rests
Power: Loud & Soft
Placement: Resonance

These are the elements of speech that humans use to convey meaning, add emphasis, display passion: all the different ways we use our voices to connect with other people. You do not need to learn how to use these tools from scratch—you already know them!—but you may need to learn how to bring them into a professional setting. For lots of understandable reasons, we tend to limit the expressive range we use when communicating at work. One of the easiest ways to make your message more impactful is to bring all of these Five P’s to your spoken communication. Watch this video for ideas on how to do just that.
