How to speak so that people want to listen

Enjoyed this TED Talk:
How to speak so that people want to listen by Julian Treasure

Julian, trains his audience as to how to speak so that people would listen to the conversation. He lists seven deadly sins of speaking which we need to move away from.

  1. Gossip
  2. Judging
  3. Negativity
  4. Complaining
  5. Blame thrower
  6. Embroidery, Exaggeration
  7. Dogmatism (bombarding others with your opinions as if they are true)

To make our speech powerful and make changes in the world – HAIL,

– Honesty (Being true)
– Authenticity (Being yourself)
I – Integrity (Being your word)
L – Love (Being somebody people can trust)

He demonstrates six vocal warm-up exercises after describing contents of an amazing toolbox which people have ever opened:

  1. Register – origin of voice – from nose, throat, down from chest
  2. Timbre – way your voice feels – rich, smooth, warm
  3. Prosody – intonation – high, low, monotone
  4. Pace – deliverance of voice – quick, slow
  5. Pitch – higher, lower
  6. Volume – sodcasting
