Episode 083. “So, all these things I learned from acting: rehearsing, relentlessly planning, thinking of your audience, inhabiting the character, bringing energy to the room… Those are all critical.” ~Rob Biesenbach
Quick! How do you introduce yourself (your business, your big idea, your creative project) to the world?
Cue the impostor! If you’ve just broken into a cold sweat, I understand. This is one of those questions that can trigger even the most accomplished person, causing them to retreat behind ineffectual language and timid gestures.
Why is it difficult for some to claim their voice?
Probably because voice is more than just the noises we make. Voice is emotion and content; it’s the literal and the figurative.
Rob Biesenbach has worked voice from every angle. As an actor, a corporate trainer, a speaker, and an author, he’s crafted strategies that help people communicate and connect.
I imagine some of you asking, “But Andrea, I’m a tax attorney (or a dog walker or a digital illustrator, or a…). What do I need to know about voice other than when to turn it up or how to dial it down?”
Well, that takes us back to the question up top.
