I offer speaker coaching as an aspect of transformational coaching.
I have been a part time voice actor for many years, at Stars in San Francisco, and at DPN in Los Angeles, and so have had to give some focus in on how it is that we can get out of our own way when trying to express ourselves authentically. Sometimes easier said than done.
Probing the right questions can be very helpful.
- Why are you saying what you are saying?
- Whom are you really speaking to?
- Why is your message important? What exactly is it?
- What is your blind spot?
So that you can:
- Connect with your audience and
- Speak in a way that you are actually heard.
Finding the key to unlock the places where we are stuck varies hugely from one individual to another.
I offer individual-based communication strategy. The aim is to be the authentic you, comfortable in your skin, with a specific goal and a clear map of how to accomplish that.
The idea is not to act like someone else but to have a deeper understanding of what it is to embody yourself. Sometimes just a shift in stance, articulation, and body movements can change the whole game. And sometimes it is a question of deeper investigation, for example: What is the Inner Saboteur up to?
Being your natural self and owning your voice sometimes really does just mean just getting out of your own way.
