How to Speak so People Will Listen

What instrument emits “the most powerful sound in the world?” Your voice, according to sound expert and author Julian Treasure. Despite that, most people don’t know how to speak in a way that encourages others to listen.

“The human voice—it’s the instrument we all play....It’s the only one that can start a war or say, ‘I love you,’” says Treasure. “And yet, many people have the experience of when they speak, people don’t listen to them.”

Treasure tells us seven speaking habits to avoid—and gives us four to try out—in this information-packed clip. Stick around for the end, when he demonstrates six vocal warm-ups that are a must before any presentation.

Did Treasure’s vocal exercises work for you? Let us know below!

Now that you know how to speak, do you know how to listen? Improve your listening skills with a 1-week listening challenge.

Why You Shouldn’t Fear Time Alone

Does enjoying your alone time make you a lonely person? Not according to author and mental strength expert Amy Morin. In fact, Morin says, setting aside just 10 minutes per day to self-reflect can have dramatic benefits.

“Often to reach our goals we have to spend some time by ourselves, and that means without our technology turned on,” she says. “Be willing to shut off your phone and shut off the TV and spend some time really reflecting on your progress, how you’re doing, and where it is that you want to go. “

Keep listening as Morin explains how to build your personal responsibility and keep more of your power.
