When it comes to speaking people have different needs
Everyone who I work with in my accent reduction coaching program is a little bit different.
Some of the people I work with speak in a manner that’s really challenging for Americans to understand.
And we take care of that.
Other people already speak with clarity, but they want to learn to speak in a manner that’s more engaging and charismatic to the American listener.
How to speak with charisma
When I work with people who want to speak in a way that’s engaging and charismatic, such as people in sales, management and teaching, I focus on these features:
- speaking with the right pace
- using pitch emphasis on important words
- using pauses to highlight important phrases
- using rising falling intonation to bring sentences to a close
Because science says
I teach these skills because science has found that people who speak using the right pace, pauses and intonation sound more charismatic to the native listener.
People who speak with the right pace, use pauses and the correct intonation sound more clear and more confident.
They don’t sound timid or in a hurry. They sound confident when delivering their message.
Non native English speakers can learn to speak with charisma
If you’re a non native English speaker, you can learn to speak in a way that sounds engaging and charismatic.
But you’ll probably need some personal training if you’re ready to learn this.
Video case studies
In my accent reduction coaching program I use video case studies of speakers including Vic Gundotra, Indra Nooyi, Steve Jobs, Eric Schmidt & Kelly McGonigal to show you exactly how charismatic speakers deliver their messages.
Studying great speakers, with explicit guidance on what to listen for and mirror, is a technique used by famous speech coaches such as Roger Love.
I teach you to do this in a way that’s customized to the needs of non native speakers.
